In a series of postmenopausal women previously studied by our group, pernicious anemia was associated with reduced bone mineral density of the spine and with vertebral fractures. To determine whether osteoporotic fractures represent an important clinical problem for such patients, we conducted a population-based retrospective cohort study of all Rochester,(More)
Based on evaluation of 59 probands and their families, we previously demonstrated that over 20% of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) have familial disease. We acquired 36 additional probands and found familial disease in 24.2% of the 95 probands in this expanded consecutively ascertained cohort. The family history, as reported by the(More)
Atmospheric ensemble and ad joint systems can provide valuable insight into the practical limitations of our ability to predict the path of tropical cyclones and their strength. An ensemble forecast system can be used to address tropical cyclone forecast uncertainty. An ad joint model can be used for the efficient and rigorous computation of numerical(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of fractures in a cohort of survivors of paralytic poliomyelitis ("polio"). DESIGN We conducted a population-based retrospective cohort study of residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, who had an initial diagnosis of polio between 1935 and 1959 and survived the acute illness. MATERIALS AND METHODS A comprehensive(More)
Whole chromosome uniparental disomy (UPD) for several different chromosomes has been described in individuals with phenotypes that encompass a broad range of abnormalities. We prospectively searched for UPD in 25 cytogenetically normal individuals who had one or more of the following features: nonsyndromic multiple congenital anomalies, short stature,(More)
This Topic includes developments related to uni-and multi-model ensemble forecasting, data assimilation, and model developments as they relate to forecasts of tropical cyclone (TC) track. The TC track forecast is a critical component of the warning system, as it serves as the basis for forecasting the areas threatened by damaging winds, storm surge, and(More)
