UNLABELLED ABSTRACT Chronic, biofilm-like infections by the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa are a major cause of mortality in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. While much is known about P. aeruginosa from laboratory studies, far less is understood about what it experiences in vivo. Iron is an important environmental parameter thought to play a(More)
BACKGROUND Early childhood growth status has been used to predict long-term clinical outcomes in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. Adulthood CF outcomes based on early weight-for-length (WFL) measurements, using either World Health Organization (WHO) or Centers for Disease Control (CDC) scales, have not been compared. METHODS Cystic Fibrosis Foundation(More)
Lithium bis(trifluoromethane) sulfonamide (TFSI) is a promising electrolyte salt in lithium batteries, due to its good conductivity and high dissociation between the lithium cation and its anion. By tethering N-pentane trifluoromethane sulfonamide (C5NHTf), a TFSI analogue molecule, onto the surface of silica nanoparticle as a monolayer coverage should(More)
Radioactive isotopes of antimony could be produced from proton induced reactions on tin isotopes. At low energy, (p,n) reactions are the only open channels. Measurements are performed for proton reactions with (124)Sn in the energy range between 9.0 and 18.0MeV. Evaluations of the remaining possible reactions are performed and compared with each other. The(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to characterize the impact of pharmacy services on medication adherence and hospitalizations for pediatric cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. METHODS A retrospective health insurance claims analysis and patient medical charts review from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2016 of patients from the Pediatric Intermountain(More)
The excitation functions of both Cd(p,n)(114m)In114 and Cd(p,2n)(113m)In114 reactions were evaluated experimentally by the stacked-foil technique on highly enriched (114)Cd isotope. Two stacks were irradiated by proton beam with energies 14.7 and 18MeV on the MGC-20 cyclotron at Nuclear Research Center, AEA, Egypt. The present results support the previous(More)
OBJECTIVE Follicular tracheitis (also known as tracheal cobblestoning) is an entity that is poorly described and of unclear significance. The objective of this study was to better define follicular tracheitis and determine the association between the clinical finding of follicular tracheitis on bronchoscopy and objective evidence of gastroesophageal reflux(More)
OBJECTIVE Determine which risk factors in children with recurrent croup warrant bronchoscopic evaluation. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING Tertiary paediatric hospital. PARTICIPANTS Children with recurrent croup who underwent a rigid bronchoscopy between 2001 and 2013. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Bronchoscopy findings, classified as normal,(More)
