The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a large (6.6 m), cold (<50 K), infrared (IR)-optimized space observatory that will be launched early in the next decade into orbit around the second Earth–Sun Lagrange point. The observatory will have four instruments: a near-IR camera, a near-IR multiobject spectrograph, and a tunable filter imager will cover the(More)
OBJECTIVE Few neuroimaging studies of generalized anxiety disorder have been conducted. The present study used proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy to assess concentrations of N-acetylaspartate, often considered a marker of neuronal viability, in generalized anxiety disorder patients. METHOD N-Acetylaspartate/creatine resonance ratios were measured in(More)
The two neuropeptides corticotropin-releasing-factor (CRF) and oxytocin (OT) may produce opposing behavioral effects - elevations of the former have been associated with anxiety and social vigilance and reductions of the latter with reduced social affiliation. We sought to test the hypothesis that, within the primate macaque genus, the more gregarious,(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare barbed sutures to traditional sutures in three domains: time, cost, and wound related outcomes in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA). A total of 34 patients were enrolled in a prospective randomized controlled trial to assess time to wound closure and cost. In addition, a retrospective(More)
—We examined and summarized existing knowledge regarding the distribution and status of self-sustaining populations of brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis at the subwatershed scale (mean subwatershed area ¼ 8,972 ha) across their native range in the eastern USA. This region represents approximately 25% of the species' entire native range and 70% of the U.S.(More)
Rat insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) cDNA sequences predict two prohormones that differ in the carboxy-terminal extension peptide (E-peptide) as a result of the inclusion or exclusion of the 52-basepair exon 4 sequence. In the absence of exon 4, the sequence codes for the IGF-Ia prohormone, whose E region contains two potential N-glycosylation sites.(More)
Acknowledgements I would like to thank Mr. Mark Hudy for giving me the opportunity to work on this project. His academic and professional guidance and advice and his encouragement in public speaking have been invaluable and will forever be beneficial in my career. Mark always made sure that I had the funding and the equipment to complete my research. I(More)
BACKGROUND AND METHODS Mutations in the estrogen-receptor gene have been thought to be lethal. A 28-year-old man whose estrogen resistance was caused by a disruptive mutation in the estrogen-receptor gene underwent studies of pituitary-gonadal function and bone density and received transdermal estrogen for six months. Estrogen-receptor DNA, extracted from(More)
BACKGROUND While estrogens protect against coronary artery disease in women, it is unclear whether they influence cardiovascular function in men. The present report describes coronary vascular abnormalities and the lipoprotein profile of a male patient with estrogen insensitivity caused by a disruptive mutation in the estrogen-receptor gene.
