It is not clear how bone mineral density (BMD) measurements from several regions of lumbar spine and proximal femur should be utilized in assessing fracture risk. We examined how well the newest ISCD recommendations differentiate subjects with and without prevalent vertebral fractures in 187 postmenopausal women presenting for routine bone densitometry. The(More)
Previous studies of growth and development in small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infants have been plagued by several methodologic defects, including a lack of control for socioeconomic status and parental height and an inability to distinguish among the effects of prematurity, neonatal asphyxia, and intrauterine growth retardation. An attempt has been made to(More)
This cross-sectional study compared risk factors for prevalent vertebral fractures (diagnosed using densitometric spine image Vertebral Fracture Assessment [VFA]) in 176 black and 345 white women recruited during their clinical bone mineral density (BMD) testing at the University of Chicago Hospitals. We used logistic regression to assess the association of(More)
Allergic or anaphylactic-like reactions have been reported with cis-dichlorodiammineplatinum(II) (CDDP) administration. We have seen two reactions among 50 patients treated in a phase II trial of CDDP. Both patients were successfully rechallenged after diphenhydramine pretreatment, and therapy was continued. In vivo and in vitro studies performed in one(More)
RORgamma is a nuclear receptor that binds to DNA motifs as a monomer to constitutively activate target genes. RORgamma plays an important role in thymocyte development and lymph node organogenesis, while the regulation of RORgamma-mediated transcriptional activation is currently unclear. The purpose of this study was to identify other nuclear proteins that(More)
BACKGROUND Parallel-walled spinal needles ≤ 22 G are routinely used for lumbar puncture, despite a reported ≥ 32% incidence of post-dural puncture headache. A tapered spinal needle (22 G shaft, 27 G tip) is in use in our institution. We hypothesized that despite the smaller dural puncture hole, this needle has similar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure(More)
Twenty-seven previously untreated patients with favorable prognosis non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were treated with a combination of total body irradiation followed by cyclophosphamide - vincristine - prednisone (CVP). The dose of total body irradiation was planned to be 150 rad followed by 6 cycles of chemotherapy. The complete response rate was 59%; the complete(More)
Thalicarpine, a plant alkaloid of novel structure, was evaluated in a phase II clinical trial. Fourteen previously treated patients with advanced malignant disease were given thalicarpine at a dose of 1100 mg/m2 weekly as a constant 2-hour iv infusion. Common toxic effects included nausea, ECG changes, arm pain, and lethargy; less frequent effects included(More)
