Total hip arthroplasty is one of the most commonly performed and successful elective orthopaedic procedures. However, numerous failure mechanisms limit the long-term success including aseptic osteolysis, aseptic loosening, infection, and implant instability. Aseptic osteolysis and subsequent implant failure occur because of a chronic inflammatory response(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study investigated relations between reported childhood abuse and recent traumatic stress symptoms in women newly diagnosed with breast cancer (n=330). METHODS As part of a larger ongoing study, patients from eight public and private hospitals were referred by their physicians and completed the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire (CTQ),(More)
Breast cancer in African-American (AA) women occurs at an earlier age than in European-American (EA) women and is more likely to have aggressive features associated with poorer prognosis, such as high-grade and negative estrogen receptor (ER) status. The mechanisms underlying these differences are unknown. To address this, we conducted a case-control study(More)
BC200 RNA, a small functional RNA that operates as a translational modulator, has been implicated in the regulation of local synaptodendritic protein synthesis in neurons. Cell type-specific expression of BC200 RNA is tightly controlled such that the RNA is not normally detected in somatic cells other than neurons. However, the neuron-specific control of(More)
The effect of blood glucose extraction on the perception of exertion was examined during prolonged arm exercise. Eight male subjects consumed in counterbalanced order a standard daily diet containing either (1) 75 g dihydroxyacetone and 25 g sodium pyruvate (DHAP) or (2) an isocaloric amount of placebo, to manipulate blood glucose extraction. Following each(More)
This study compared the rates of proliferation and apoptosis of cells within nodules of Dupuytren's disease and nodules from patients that had been injected preoperatively with steroid (Depo-Medrone). It also compared the effects of steroids in apoptosis in cultured Dupuytren's cells and control fibroblasts from palmar fascia and fascia lata. Steroids(More)
BACKGROUND A successful regional trauma care system should concentrate severely injured patients within trauma centers, and should improve severity-adjusted outcomes. We compared injured patients' outcomes in New York City's level 1 trauma centers and nontrauma centers. STUDY DESIGN We analyzed 1998-2000 New York Statewide Planning and Cooperative(More)
To determine whether alendronate alters the pseudomembrane inflammatory cytokine profile in patients with established aseptic osteolysis. A prospective, double-blind, randomized, controlled trial was conducted. Ten individuals listed for revision surgery for aseptic failure of a primary cemented arthroplasty were randomly assigned placebo/alendronate 70 mg(More)
Locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) often requires complex treatment, and the prognosis is typically poor. We hypothesize that LABC patients engage the healthcare system with a variant pattern as compared with patients diagnosed with early stage disease. We identified all newly diagnosed breast cancer patients between 2005 and 2009 at Kings County(More)
We report the results of an experimental and theoretical study of hydrogen storage in sodium alanate (NaAlH(4)). Reversible hydrogen storage in this material is dependent on the presence of 2-4% Ti dopant. Our combined study shows that the role of Ti may be linked entirely to Ti-containing active catalytic sites in the metallic Al phase present in the(More)
