INTRODUCTION Nosocomial pneumonia is the most important infectious complication in patients admitted to intensive care units. Kinetic bed therapy may reduce the incidence of nosocomial pneumonia in mechanically ventilated patients. The objective of this study was to investigate whether kinetic bed therapy reduces the incidence of nosocomial pneumonia and(More)
Squamous cell carcinoma on sun-damaged skin is a malignant neoplasm that evolves from its inception as squamous cell carcinoma in situ, which is commonly referred to as an actinic keratosis. In this study, we reviewed 1011 squamous cell carcinomas on sun-damaged skin and found that nearly 100% of these lesions contained histopathologic changes consistent(More)
It is often desirable in laser spectroscopy and isotope separation to extract as much as possible of an atomic or molecular population that is distributed among a number of ground-state sublevels and low-lying metastable levels. We describe a form of coherent trapping that occurs when multiple resonant laser beams are used to couple the various ground(More)
NF-kappaB activation is mediated by the IKK signalsome. Though this signalsome is comprised of IKK-1, IKK-2, and NEMO/IKKgamma, it is the interaction between IKK-2 and NEMO that is critical to formation of a functional signalsome. More specifically, previous reports have indicated that this interaction involves the C-terminal LDWSWL residues of IKK-2(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital Spitz nevus has been reported previously in the literature, but the histopathologic features have not been examined in detail. OBJECTIVE To histologically examine and report on congenital Spitz nevus. METHOD We examined 10 clinically submitted congenital melanocytic nevi that were histopathologically identified as congenital Spitz(More)
