The purpose of this study was to examine lung function and bronchodilator responsiveness in infants with a history of prematurity and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), using the raised volume rapid thoracoabdominal compression technique as well as with whole-body plethysmography. Spirometric measurements were obtained in 28 infants with a history of BPD,(More)
Several studies have shown that treatment with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogue can reduce uterine volume in women with leiomyomata. However, no study to date has used a controlled population for comparison, nor has any study delineated the physiologic mechanism of volume reduction. We performed a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of a(More)
Alterations in plasma prolactin (PRL) concentrations in response to nursing in puerperally lactating women are often significant beyond the 90th postpartum day, yet the increment appears unrelated to the frequency or duration of the nursing stimulus. Tonic gonadotropin secretion is low, assuming a more episodic secretory pattern either when the frequency of(More)
Assessment of adrenal reserve and the diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency by acute adrenocortical stimulation with ACTH-(1-24) has been well established. Alternatively, estimation of adrenocortical enzymatic activities by this method for the detection of inherited or acquired biosynthetic abnormalities has been less well characterized. Some of the(More)
BACKGROUND Duodenal-Gastro-Esophageal Reflux (DGER) represents an independent risk factor for the development of complicated Gastro-esophageal-reflux-disease (GERD) and Barrett's esophagus. Clinical and epidemiological data suggest a potential association between cholecystectomy (CCE) and augmented bile reflux. METHODS 132 patients (67 women, 65 men,(More)
Nonpuerperal alactorrhea and amenorrhea have been reported following the use of oral contraceptives. Treatment of this condition with ergot alkaloids has proved to be of great therapeutic value. Pretreatment plasma hLH and hFSH concentrations in 13 women with postqill galactorrhea-amenorrhea (PPGA) were 6.6 plus or minus 0.6 (SE.) and 5.0 plus or minus 0.8(More)
Dr. Ruth Harrell and her colleagues conducted a study in 1981 in which the administration of high dosages of vitamins were determined to dramatically improve the intellectual functioning of mentally retarded children. This paper documents the efforts of its authors to replicate the Harrell et al. research and, although no significant differences were found(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the pattern of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) in splenic metastases compared to standard B-mode ultrasonography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 2004 and March 2009, about 50,000 abdominal ultrasound examinations were performed, and n = 279 (< 0.6 %) of focal splenic lesions were detected of which n = 32 (11.5 %)(More)
