In the present experiments, we characterized the agonist and antagonist effects of butorphanol in mice. In the mouse radiant-heat tail-flick test, the mu agonists morphine and fentanyl and the kappa agonist U50,488H were fully effective as analgesics, whereas butorphanol was partially effective (producing 82% of maximal possible analgesic effect).(More)
BACKGROUND Specific proteins produced from monocytes may be linked to the pathogenesis and aid in the diagnosis of HIV-1-associated dementia (HAD). OBJECTIVE The authors assessed whether a diagnostic phenomic protein profile could be obtained from monocyte-derived macrophages (MDM) from HIV-1-infected patients with cognitive impairment.

It was expected that the incidence of skin cancer would be related to the known high arsenic levels in water supplies of Lane County, Oregon. Incidence rates were based on all histopathologically confirmed cases among Lane County residents diagnosed during 1958-1971 and were compared to mean water arsenic levels measured during 1968-1974.

One of the most frequently performed pediatric surgical procedures is tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. Nausea and vomiting and the inability to tolerate oral fluids lead to unplanned hospitalizations. Despite treatment with metoclopramide and droperidol, nausea and vomiting continue to be high after this procedure. We designed this investigation to compare(More)
The authors examined the unique moderating potential of need for achievement, perceived organizational support, and faith in management on the relationship between perceptions of politics across 3 hierarchical levels (one's peer level, 1 level up, and at the highest level in the organization) and depressed mood at work. Results from 173 full-time employees,(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy of adding butorphanol to bupivacaine administered in the caudal epidural space in children undergoing genitourinary (GU) procedures. DESIGN Randomized, double-blinded, controlled study. SETTING University affiliated pediatric hospital. PATIENTS 200 ASA physical status I and II male patients between 6 months(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To establish a dose-response relationship for ondansetron, and to evaluate any effects of oral premedication with metoclopramide in pediatric patients undergoing tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy and strabismus surgery. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, double blind study. SETTING University affiliated, 280-bed pediatric hospital. PATIENTS(More)
BACKGROUND International guidelines (2000) do not recommend vasopressor and antiarrhythmic medications during ventricular fibrillation (VF) with a core temperature below 30 degrees C. The efficacy of normothermic AHA algorithms using standard doses of epinephrine (EPI) (adrenaline) followed by amiodarone (AMIO) in hypothermic VF is uncertain. OBJECTIVES(More)
UNLABELLED Refractory ventricular fibrillation (VF) is a complication of severe hypothermia. Despite mixed experimental data, some authors view bretylium as the drug of choice in hypothermic VF. Bretylium was removed from Advanced Cardiac Life Support guidelines, and, to date, efficacy of amiodarone in hypothermia is unknown. OBJECTIVES To compare(More)
