Nine patients with an initial onset of symptoms of acute arthritis within the preceding four weeks were enrolled in a prospective serological study with clinical follow-up for six months to two years. Four adults with chronic rheumatoid arthritis and ten healthy adults were similarly studied. Serial titers measured included antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus(More)
Eleven symptomatic and seven asymptomatic patients, considered to be at high risk of osteonecrosis of the hip, were studied using plain radiography, scintigraphy, computed tomography (CT) with multiplanar reconstruction (MPR), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to determine the precise roles of the various imaging modalities in detecting and staging(More)
The hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) has been recognized for more than 45 years and consists of the combination of hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal failure. HUS occurs predominantly in children younger than 4 years of age. It is the most frequent cause of acute renal failure in children. The most common form of the syndrome (D+ HUS) occurs(More)
Normal newborns have reduced levels of tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA). Stressed newborns have an increased prevalence of thrombotic diseases. An impaired release of tPA and/or increased plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) is associated with thrombotic risk in the adult patient. The purpose of this study was to assay the plasma levels of tPA, PAI,(More)
Vitamin K-deficient animals and humans developed a more severe coagulopathy when treated with vitamin E, which was due to further reduction in the vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors (II, VII, IX, and X). This phenomenon was not seen in normal vitamin K-sufficient animals or human subjects. The mechanism by which vitamin E causes this effect is not(More)
