The effects of extracellular applications of Zn2+ ions on the strychnine-sensitive glycine receptor were studied in cultured rat spinal cord neurons and with recombinant glycine receptors expressed in human embryonic kidney 293 cells. Nanomolar concentrations of Zn2+ enhanced the chloride ion current in response to brief applications of 100 microM glycine.(More)
BACKGROUND Statistical mediation is an important tool in behavioral health sciences, but it has been confined primarily to continuous variables. As prevention studies become increasingly common, more often the mediator or outcome is binary. Recent work by D. P. MacKinnon and J. H. Dwyer (1993) has explicated the steps necessary to estimate models for(More)

Many surgeons are reluctant to offer elective inguinal and femoral hernia repair (IHR) to the elderly due to concerns of increased risk. The authors sought to evaluate the outcomes of elderly patients undergoing IHR compared to the general population. We performed a retrospective review of the 2011 NSQIP database evaluating 19,683 patients undergoing IHR.(More)
