A virus (strain WI61) representing a presumptive new human serotype was isolated from an 18-month-old child with gastroenteritis admitted to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in February 1983. The WI61 virus was clearly distinguished by cross-neutralization tests from human rotaviruses of serotypes 1, 2, 3, and 4, human 69M, and representative bovine(More)
Model organisms like Drosophila melanogaster or Caenorhabditis elegans have revealed genes that influence senescence and the evolvability of senescence. We are interested instead in evaluating why and how senescence evolves in natural populations. To do so, we are taking the ecological geneticist's perspective of comparing natural populations that differ in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Only a small minority of acute stroke patients receive approved acute stroke therapy. We performed a community and professional behavioral intervention project to increase the proportion of stroke patients treated with approved acute stroke therapy. METHODS This study used a quasi-experimental design. Intervention and comparison(More)
Bilateral swelling of upper and lower eyelids was caused by lymphocytic infiltration in an 8-year-old Thoroughbred mare. The condition worsened with pregnancy and became associated with subcutaneous dissemination of lymphosarcoma at distant sites.
Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a rare, often fatal complication of mitomycin C therapy. It is generally accepted that HUS is, in part, caused by endothelial cell dysfunction. Endothelial cells modulate blood flow, blood pressure, and myointimal proliferation. Endothelial cells synthesize and release products that modulate vascular tone and regulate(More)
Continuous exposure of mice to near-ultraviolet (UV) light (black light) over a period of 19 weeks induces adverse alterations in lens protein chemistry, in lens epithelial cell differentiation, and in retinal photoreceptor structure at more than a doubled rate as for 12 hours a day of intermittent exposure. No histologic changes were found in the cornea.(More)
The purpose of this cross-sectional survey was to determine relations between marital adjustment as measured by the Dyadic Adjustment Scale and antihypertension compliance. From seven dependent measures, we found high marital adjustment scores to be significantly correlated with less obesity, lower frequency of forgetting blood pressure medications, and(More)
Toxic multinodular goiter is rare in hemodialysis patients. In addition, establishing the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism in the elderly patient with renal failure is difficult because abnormal thyroid function tests can erroneously be attributed to euthyroid sick syndrome. Treatment of hyperthyroidism in dialysis patients by radioiodine ablation involves(More)
