Changes in summer (July-September) and winter (January-March) mortalities of people aged 70-74 in England and Wales from 1964 to 1984 were compared with possible causal factors. Summer mortalities were little affected by annual temperature or influenza epidemics and fell from 1972-1975 for all causes, coronary and respiratory causes, while cerebrovascular(More)

Given the high costs of conducting a drug-response trial, researchers are now aiming to use retrospective analyses to conduct genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to identify underlying genetic contributions to drug-response variation. To prevent confounding results from a GWAS to investigate drug response, it is necessary to account for concomitant(More)
INTRODUCTION Legume green manures (LGMs) are beneficial for soil conservation and may provide a positive agronomic and economic alternative to summer fallow in the northern Great Plains (Zentner et al., 2004). It is important to understand management practices that best balance LGM gains, such as fixed nitrogen (N) and weed suppression, with their potential(More)
