In a survey of double-bind design, 3 groups of approximately 70 student volunteers took 1 g L-ascorbic acid, 1 g D-isoascorbic acid, or placebo tablets every day for 15 weeks and the incidence and duration of colds were recorded. The group taking D-isoascrobic acid suffered 34% fewer colds than the other two groups; the results were also analyzed in(More)
Dural arteriovenous fistulae (DAVFs) are a potentially dangerous group of intracranial arteriovenous shunts with significant morbidity and mortality.

Impermeable, solid polysulfone intracorneal lenses (ICLs) can change corneal refractive power but will not allow diffusion of nutrients from the aqueous to the anterior stroma. Lenses of 4, 5, 6, and 7 mm in diameter were implanted in 50 cat eyes at depths ranging from 45% to 95% of corneal thickness to determine the effect of depth and diameter. Two types(More)
A neonatal population of 542 was tested for cytomegaloviruria. 293 were normally grown and full term, 172 normally grown but premature, and 77 were undergrown. Two normally grown term infants and one premature were excreting the virus (o.55%). Only one, a normally grown term infant, had signs of classical cytomegalic inclusion disease. None of the(More)
A HIV-positive child presented with acute onset of right hemiplegia, facial palsy and dysphasia 4 weeks after commencing highly active antiretroviral therapy. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a left-sided cerebral infarct. Cerebrospinal fluid polymerase chain reaction was positive for varicella zoster virus. This is the first reported pediatric case of(More)
