Transient hypertrophic subaortic stenosis due to interventricular septal hypertrophy is an important cause of morbidity in the infant of the diabetic mother (IDM). The purpose of this study was to quantitate left ventricular outflow obstruction through estimation of cardiac output (CO) by pulsed Doppler ultrasound. We evaluated 42 IDMs (White class B, C, D)(More)
Arcanobacterium haemolyticum has been described as a rare cause of systemic invasive disease and is occasionally isolated from throat swabs. We describe a 2-year study of the incidence and clinical features of A. haemolyticus infection in a pediatric and adolescent population. A total of 11,620 throat swabs were examined for A. haemolyticum with use of a(More)
Environmental agents are proposed to play a role in triggering or exacerbating pancreatic islet autoimmunity in people genetically predisposed to type 1 diabetes. However, with few exceptions, these agents remain enigmatic. Clues to environmental agents may be found by investigating population/geographic clusters or 'hotspots' of high disease incidence. We(More)
In 30,000 consecutive deliveries from July, 1981 to July 1983, 65 infants with symptomatic congenital heart defects (CHD) and 138 infants with Nonstructural Heart Disease (Ischemic Myocardial Dysfunction, Persistent Fetal Circulation, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) were encountered during the immediate newborn period (<2 wks of age). In addition to routine(More)
The combination of 2-dimensional real-time and pulsed Doppler echocardiography provides a noninvasive method of measuring blood flow and has been used to study blood flow at the lower thoracic level of the descending aorta (DA) in the human fetus. Using these techniques, we evaluated the proportion of cardiac output distributed through the DA in 13 term(More)
School age children in Chile receive 30g of biscuits each day through a national food supplementation program. Wheat flour biscuits were fortified with 4,6 and 8% of a hemoglobin concentrate obtained from cattle blood. The 4% and 6% fortified biscuits were considered acceptable for consumption and did not show unfavorable changes after storage for 6 months(More)
The effect of G-CSF pretreatment on experimental acute lung injury was studied in Sprague-Dawley rats receiving one of the following treatments: (1) G-CSF 50 micrograms/kg subcutaneously twice daily beginning 2 d prior to being killed; (2) ANTU 50 mg/kg intraperitoneally; (3) ANTU+G-CSF 50, 25, or 12.5 micrograms/kg; (4) HCl 0.6 ml of a 0.1 N solution(More)
After 7 years on haemodialysis, a 37-year-old anephric man developed cutaneous lesions of the hands, arms and face, shown by skin biopsy to be compatible with porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) (symptomatic porphyria). Elevated levels of plasma uroporphyrin and 7-COOH porphyrin were detected alongside a predominant isocoproporphyrin fraction in the faeces by(More)
