Under appropriate culture conditions, bone marrow (BM)-derived mesenchymal stem cells are capable of differentiating into diverse cell types unrelated to their phenotypical embryonic origin, including neural cells. Here, we report the successful generation of neural stem cell (NSC)-like cells from BM-derived human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs). Initially,(More)
Our recent observations (1) that there is a difference in circadian patterns of plasma cortisol levels between male and female macaques and (2) that after gonadectomy these differences in the patterns and in the levels of cortisol were reduced prompted us to investigate how 17 beta-estradiol (E2) and progesterone affect cortisol secretion in orchidectomized(More)

An attachment injury is a newly coined clinical construct that denotes a specific type of betrayal within the couple's relationship. The(More)
Studies that accurately identify myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke within populations would provide valuable epidemiological information as well as data on vascular disease prevention. We performed a pilot study to assess the feasibility of adding MI surveillance to an ongoing population-based stroke surveillance study, the Brain Attack Surveillance in(More)

Many health organizations now have reporting systems for operational key performance indicators (KPIs) and regulatory metrics and data warehouse systems for analytics. However, using this(More)
