This article reports impact and cost results from a health facility-based nutrition education programme targeting children less than 2 years of age in Trujillo, Peru. Key elements of the programme included participative complementary feeding demonstrations, growth monitoring sessions and an accreditation process. Data were collected from six intervention(More)
Levels of ciprofloxacin in serum and sputum were studied for eight patients with cystic fibrosis who were infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Patients were studied in a steady state on a dosage of 500 mg every 8 h. Peak levels in serum ranged from 1.27 to 5.6 mg/liter (mean, 3.16 +/- 1.27), and absorption was rapid, the time to peak concentration ranging(More)
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) significantly reduces the frequency of partial seizures in refractory epilepsy patients. We examined the serious adverse events, side effects, and tolerability as they relate to the surgical implant procedure and the stimulating device. We also reviewed potential drug interactions, device output complications, and impact of the(More)
The syndrome of opsoclonus and polymyoclonus developed in an infant who had acute meningoencephalitis with ataxia. A low-density cerebellar lesion was noted by computed tomography, subsequently resolving with residual cerebellar atrophy. The infant recovered completely, except for a mild intention tremor. This was the first documentation, to our knowledge,(More)
Polarographical Measurement of Local Cerebral Blood Flow in the Conscious and Anesthetized Primate • This study was undertaken to evaluate the brain hemodynamics of the primate {Macaca mu-latta) in the conscious and anesthetized state. A polarographical circuit was utilized for repetitive measurements of local and average total cerebral blood flow in the(More)
Action observation (AO), observing another individual perform an action, has been implicated in several higher cognitive processes including forming basic motor memories. Previous work has shown that physical practice (PP) results in cortical motor representational changes, referred to as use-dependent plasticity (UDP), and that AO combined with PP(More)
Short latency somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) to unilateral median nerve electrical stimulation were recorded from normal infants at birth and at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 months of age. Three channels were recorded: Erb's point-Fz; C II (over 2nd cervical vertebra)-Fz; contralateral C' (2 cm posterior to C3 or C4)-Fz. Sweep time = 50 msec. At birth, the(More)
Thirty-nine very low-birthweight (VLBW) preterm infants with periventricular hemorrhage (PVH) were studied with short-latency median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) at two, four and/or six months corrected age, and subsequently were followed to a mean age of 22 months. All 12 infants with a single SEP showing unilateral absence or prolonged(More)
