We present measurements of the branching fractions of the decays B+-->eta'K+ and B0-->eta'K0. For B0-->eta(')K(0)(S) we also measure the time-dependent CP-violation parameters S eta'(K(0)(S)) and C eta'(K(0)(S)), and for B+-->eta'K+ the time-integrated charge asymmetry A(ch). The data sample corresponds to 88.9 x 10(6) BB pairs produced by e(+)e(-)(More)
We present a measurement of the time-dependent CP-violating (CPV) asymmetries in B0-->K(0)(S)pi(0) decays based on 124x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. In a sample containing 122+/-16 signal decays, we obtain the magnitudes of the direct CPV asymmetry(More)
Films of 50 normal patients and 50 dry skulls were examined to detect lines which might stimulate a nasal fracture. These were visible on the occipito-mental view but on the lateral view any line which reaches the anterior cortex must be regarded as a fracture. The results of an analysis of 100 patients with trauma to the nasal bone are also presented. It(More)
Carriage of the bacterium H. pylori in the human stomach is associated with evidence of increased epithelial cell apoptosis. This may be of significance in the etiology of gastritis, peptic ulcers, and neoplasia. The ability of H. pylori to directly induce epithelial apoptosis was examined in vitro by fluorescence and electron microscopy, flow cytometry,(More)
A prospective study of 500 patients was performed to determine the reasons for requesting radiographs in an accident and emergency department. Most examinations were requested either to confirm a clinically suspected abnormality or because of difficulty in excluding a significant bone injury on clinical grounds alone. Several requests were also made to(More)
OBJECTIVE To confirm a suspected small-bowel injury in patients with a syndrome of protracted diarrhea associated with a coccidia-like body (CLB). DESIGN Investigation of an epidemic including a case-control study. SETTING Outpatient clinic in Kathmandu serving primarily the tourist and expatriate community in Nepal. PATIENTS Nine patients with(More)
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) receives a direct photic projection from the retina, the retinohypothalamic tract (RHT), and an indirect photic projection from the intergeniculate leaflet of the thalamus, the geniculohypothalamic tract (GHT). The primary neurochemical signal in the GHT appears to be neuropeptide Y (NPY), and several lines of evidence(More)
We present a first measurement of CP asymmetries in neutral B decays to D+D-, and updated CP asymmetry measurements in decays to D(*+)D- and D(*-)D+. We use fully reconstructed decays collected in a data sample of (232+/-3) x 10(6) gamma(4S)-->BB events in the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at SLAC. We determine the time-dependent(More)
Critically ill patients transferred between hospitals are often inadequately monitored in transit, with outcome adversely affected. In 22 such patients, we compared direct and palpated measurements of systolic pressure, oscilloscopic and aneroid manometric measurements of mean pressure, ECG and palpated measurements of heart-rate and clinical and oximetric(More)
