The highly infectious phase of acute human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, defined as the interval between the appearance of HIV RNA in plasma and the detection of HIV-1-specific antibodies, contributes disproportionately to HIV transmission. The current HIV diagnostic algorithm consists of a repeatedly reactive immunoassay (IA), followed by a(More)
Recent advances now permit resection of many pharyngeal tumors through the open mouth, an approach that can greatly reduce the morbidity of surgical exposure. These transoral techniques are being rapidly adopted by the surgical community and hold considerable promise. On November 6-7, 2011, the National Cancer Institute sponsored a Clinical Trials Planning(More)
This paper presents an architecture for INFORM, a domain-independent, expert-directed knowledge acquisition aid for developing knowledge-based systems. The INFORM architecture is based on information requirements and modeling approaches derived from both decision analysis and knowledge engineering. It emphasizes accommodating cycles of creative and analytic(More)
IMPORTANCE Surgical salvage may be the only viable treatment option for recurrent tumors of the oropharynx. To our knowledge, there have been no published reports directly comparing the oncologic and functional outcomes of patients with recurrent oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) treated with transoral robotic-assisted surgery (TORS) with those(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE Acute HIV infection is a clinical diagnosis aided by technology. Detecting the highly infectious acute stage of HIV infection is critical to reducing transmission and improving long-term outcomes. The Maricopa Integrated Health System implemented nontargeted, opt-out HIV screening with a fourth-generation antigen/antibody combination HIV(More)
Intussusception of the large bowel is a rare clinical entity. In adults, this pathology is usually associated with a malignant lead point and often requires operative management. Reported is the case of an 83-year-old female who was recently diagnosed with superficial bladder cancer (T1) treated by partial cystectomy. She presented 3 months post-operatively(More)
A 34-year-old man with hypercalcemia had a sestamibi scan that showed increased uptake that appeared to correspond with a 7 mm density in the mediastinum, adjacent to the aortic arch, on chest CT. This lesion was thought to be consistent with an ectopic parathyroid adenoma. Prior to surgical exploration, the patient was injected intravenously with 12.3(More)
This study reports on the responses of 232 international undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota who answered a survey about the challenges they faced in their first semester on campus. The survey questions focused on what made learning difficult, what major challenges international students recognized for students adjusting to studying at a(More)
Discussion papers are research materials circulated by their authors for purposes of information and discussion. They have not necessarily undergone formal peer review. Abstract This study estimates the impacts on a disaggregated set of California industries of introducing a carbon pricing policy within the state. Two time horizons are considered, the "(More)
