Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare malignancy of uncertain histologic origin that predominantly afflicts female children and young adults. Forty-three cases occurring in the head and neck have been identified, to which we add a case. The most frequent sites of occurrence in the head and neck are orbit and tongue. Treatment is universally surgical,(More)
Previous evidence has suggested a relationship between spontaneous otoacoustic emissions (SOAEs) and established, biological cycles, although detailed statistical quantifications of the suggested relationships do not exist in the literature. In an attempt to statistically quantify the purported circadian and monthly influences on this phenomenon, two(More)
We report a new measurement of the pseudorapidity (eta) and transverse-energy ( E(T)) dependence of the inclusive jet production cross section in pp(macro) collisions at square root of s = 1.8 TeV using 95 pb(-1) of data collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The differential cross section d(2)sigma/(dE(T)d eta) is presented up to eta = 3,(More)
We present a search for large extra dimensions (ED) in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.8 TeV using data collected by the DØ detector at the Fermilab Tevatron in 1994-1996. Data corresponding to 78.8+/-3.9 pb(-1) are examined for events with large missing transverse energy, one high-p(T) jet, and no isolated muons. There is no excess observed(More)
Under phase I of an FDA-approved Investigational Device Exemption (IDE), six patients at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) have been implanted with the Clarion, a new multichannel, multiprogrammable cochlear implant system. Over a period of 5 years, the Clarion has been collaboratively developed by UCSF, the Research Triangle Institute(More)
The biocompatibility of commercially available polyimides was examined in relation to the sensory and neural structures of the cochlea. Thin films of four different polyimides were prepared as substrates for photolithographically produced scala tympani electrode arrays and implanted in 32 cat cochleae. Following at least three months implantation time, the(More)
Neurotrophins, retinoids and their receptors are present in the sensory epithelia of the inner ear during development. We show that these factors modulate the proliferation of hair cells and their K+-currents when the embryonic day 3 (ED 3) presumptive inner ear (i.e. otocyst) is maintained in organ culture. All trans-retinoic acid (RA) increases hair cell(More)
We describe QUAERO, a method that (i) enables the automatic optimization of searches for physics beyond the standard model, and (ii) provides a mechanism for making high energy collider data generally available. We apply QUAERO to searches for standard model WW, ZZ, and t t macro production, to searches for these objects produced through a new heavy(More)
We present a measurement of the W boson mass using data collected by the DØ experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron during 1994–1995. We identify W bosons by their decays to eν final states where the electron is detected in a forward calorimeter. We extract the W boson mass, M W , by fitting 3 4 the transverse mass and transverse electron and neutrino momentum(More)
We report a search for effects of large extra spatial dimensions in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.8 TeV with the D0 detector, using events containing a pair of electrons or photons. The data are in good agreement with the expected background and do not exhibit evidence for large extra dimensions. We set the most restrictive lower limits to(More)
