INTRODUCTION Administrative claims data have not commonly been used to study the clinical effectiveness of medications for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) because of the lack of a validated algorithm for this outcome. We created and tested a claims-based algorithm to serve as a proxy for the clinical effectiveness of RA medications. METHODS We linked Veterans(More)

Purpose: Assess the association of gout characteristics with health-related quality of life (HRQoL) using a new gout-specific HRQoL instrument, the Gout Impact Scale (GIS). Patients and methods: Gout patients completed the GIS (five scales [0–100 score each] representing impact of gout overall [three scales] and during an attack [two scales]) and other(More)
This study explored the antioxidant and immunomodulatory potential of ethnomedicinally valuable species, namely, Arisaema jacquemontii of north-western Himalayan region. The tubers, leaves, and fruits of this plant were subjected to extraction using different solvents. In vitro antioxidant studies were performed in terms of chelation power on ferrous ions(More)
Chronic musculoskeletal pain is a common cause of chronic pain, which is associated with a total cost of $635 billion per year in the U.S. Emerging evidence suggests an anti-nociceptive action of botulinum toxin, independent of its muscle paralyzing action. This review provides a summary of data from both non-randomized and randomized clinical studies of(More)
We consider texture modeling techniques which are exemplar-based, i.e. techniques which use several example texture images to learn pixel arrangements. The motivation for these techniques is that the structure of a texture can be characterized by the spatial distribution of pixels in a neighborhood of the image or the multiresolution pyramid. To get another(More)
We consider a model where the interfering links employ on-off modulation in each transmission slot. In the on (active) state, a link obtains a data rate determined by the interference from other active links in the network. Based on this model, we compare the throughput regions of centralized scheduling and a probabilistic random access scheme, wherein in(More)
