The fragile X chromosome is an important factor in inherited mental retardation in males. It has also been reported that infantile autism is associated with fragile X. Recently, an article reported an examination of a small sample of autistic children in whom the fragile X chromosome was not found. Its authors concluded that if an association between(More)
OBJECTIVE To catalog the side effects of 2.4 atmospheres absolute (atm abs) hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) vs. sham on post-concussion symptoms in military service members with combat-related, mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). METHODS Fifty subjects diagnosed with TBI were randomized to either a sham (1.3 atm abs breathing air) or treatment (2.4 atm abs(More)
This study examined whether subjecting a crushed muscle to a delayed intermittent hyperbaric oxygenation protocol would facilitate healing, the marker for healing being a return toward 100% uncrushed muscle in selected mechanical, morphologic, and biochemical parameters. Thirty-six rabbits (4 groups of 9) had the right lateral head of their gastrocnemius(More)
OBJECTIVE Determine changes in cognition and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in subjects with traumatic brain injury (TBI) exposed to 2.4 atmospheres absolute (atm abs) breathing 100% oxygen vs. sham (1.3 atm-abs air). METHODS Fifty randomized subjects completed a total of 30 exposures. A concussion history was taken, then baseline,(More)
Two brothers with fra(X) positive X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) were treated with folic acid. Initially a double blind cross-over design was employed followed by a long-term high dose trial. A decrease in the frequency of fra(X) positive cells was observed when low folic acid culture medium was used but not when an FUdR induction system was employed.(More)
This study tests the hypothesis that the development of normal and autistic children differs only in rate and asymptote. A total of 195 normal children between 1 and 5 years of age, 160 normal children between 3 months and 24 months of age, and 41 autistic children between 5 and 11 years of age were evaluated on the eight psychological variables(More)
We previously found that intermittent hyperbaric oxygen exposure increases metabolic enzyme activity in soleus muscle. Since the metabolic enzyme activities of the heart and diaphragm of healthy animals are difficult to alter, we questioned whether intermittent hyperbaric oxygenation would provide a stimulus sufficient to increase metabolic enzyme activity.(More)
