Vertebral fractures are the most common type of osteoporotic fracture, but more than two-thirds remain undetected. We have examined the relationship between height loss and the development of new vertebral fractures to determine whether there is a height loss threshold that has useful clinical accuracy to detect new fractures. We studied 985 postmenopausal(More)
The use of historical controls may be a viable alternative for comparing antifracture efficacy in osteoporosis fracture endpoint trials that do not have a placebo control group. The risedronate 2 consecutive days a month (2CDM) study showed that risedronate 75mg on 2 consecutive days had similar increases in bone mineral density compared with risedronate(More)
The efficacy of a porcine circovirus type 2 (pcv-2) vaccine was tested in pigs vaccinated at three or six weeks of age. A total of 1106 weaned pigs were randomly allocated to one of three treatment groups: vaccinated at three weeks of age, vaccinated at six weeks of age, or not vaccinated. Each pig was weighed at three, 10 and 22 weeks of age, and 48 pigs(More)
An angular position-sensing transducer was used to make continuous measurements of acid-induced elongation of Avena sativa coleoptile segments. Elongation rates at pH 4.5 (5 mM succinate buffer) were about 5-fold greater than those at pH 6.0. Buffered 0.1 mM abscisic acid produced a partial decrease of the growth rate. Pretreatments with abscisic acid(More)
