Parathyroid hormone (amino acids 1-34) (PTH) regulates bone and calcium homeostasis. The magnitude of the effects of PTH on bone varies in osteoporosis patients. We employed ProteinChip technology to generate protein profiles from sera of mice treated once daily with PTH or vehicle for 3 or 11 days. Data analyses on selected arrays indicated significant(More)
Bioremediation is an important approach to waste reduction that relies on biological processes to break down a variety of pollutants. This is made possible by the vast metabolic diversity of the microbial world. To explore this diversity for the breakdown of plastic, we screened several dozen endophytic fungi for their ability to degrade the synthetic(More)
BACKGROUND Serum proteins in neuroblastoma (NB), such as neuron-specific enolase and lactate dehydrogenase, are used as nonspecific markers of disease severity. In this study, we have generated serum protein profiles that correlate with NB by applying proteomic technologies to uncover, at the protein level, serum polypeptide expression patterns in patients(More)
Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) consists of standardized, coordinated, interdisciplinary perioperative care plans. An increasing body of evidence supports the clinical effectiveness of ERAS for a wide range of procedures. ERAS plans been implemented worldwide. Evidence from randomized controlled trials, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses has(More)
Co-management of surgical patients refers to patient care in which the medicine physician daily assesses acute issues, addresses medical comorbidities, communicates with surgeons, and facilitates patient care transition from the acute care hospital setting. Co-management of surgical patients is fast becoming a common practice, particularly among orthopedic,(More)
Medicare's fee-for-service (FFS) payment model may contribute to unsustainable spending growth. Payers are turning to alternative payment methods. The leading alternative payment model to the FFS problem is bundled payment. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is taking another step to improve healthcare quality at lower cost. The CMS's Center(More)
The administration of intravesical chemotherapy or BCG often can prolong the progression-free interval after initial transurethral resection in select bladder cancer (BCa) patients. However, 60% of these patients will recur and up to 30% of patients with recurrent BCa will progress and succumb to their disease over a 15 year period, while another 50% will(More)
Healthcare delivery systems will change in dramatic ways in the years ahead. Anesthesiologists have to adapt and support the innovators. The Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) is a patient-centered and physician-led multidisciplinary and team-based system of coordinated care. The goal of the PSH is to create a better patient experience and make surgical care(More)
