The initiation of the morphogenesis of gustatory papillae is independent of innervation. To address the question of whether taste bud formation is associated with gustatory papilla morphogenesis, we examined developing tongues in mouse embryos from embryonic day 11 to birth. Despite the smooth morphological appearance of the lingual dorsal surface at 13(More)
Evidence for an analgesic interaction between delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta(9)-THC) and morphine was sought using an experimental pain model applied to normal volunteers. The study incorporated a double blinded, four treatment, four period, four sequence, crossover design. Subjects received Delta(9)-THC 5 mg orally or placebo and 90 min later morphine(More)
A Tactical Internet (TI) comprising the components of the communications infrastructure needed to support future multimedia information requirements will be a key component of the systems architecture as the Army moves toward a digitized battlefield. The evolutionary nature of the technology, along with security issues and data confidentiality requirements(More)
BACKGROUND Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a chronic disease associated with high degrees of morbidity and increased mortality. Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) among adults with sickle cell disease has not been widely reported. METHODS We administered the Medical Outcomes Study 36-item Short-Form to 308 patients in the Pain in Sickle Cell Epidemiology(More)
OBJECTIVE Depression and anxiety are common in sickle cell disease (SCD) but relatively little is known about their impact on SCD adults. This study measured prevalence of depression and anxiety in SCD adults, and their effects on crisis and noncrisis pain, quality-of-life, opioid usage, and healthcare utilization. METHODS The Pain in Sickle Cell(More)
Treatment options for sickle cell disease (SCD) pain could be tailored to pain locations. But few epidemiologic descriptions of SCD pain location exist; these are based on few subjects over short time periods. We examined whether SCD pain locations vary by disease genotype, gender, age, frequency of pain, depression, pain crisis or healthcare utilization.(More)
Ten patients with ovarian cancer refractory to conventional therapy were treated with intraperitoneal (i.p.) recombinant interleukin-2 (rIL-2) and lymphokine-activated killer cells (LAK). The 28-day protocol con sisted of 6 priming i.p. rIL-2 infusions on days 0, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12. Leukapheresis was performed for mononuclear cell collection on days 15,(More)
Octopus cyanea is taken as an unregulated, recreationally fished species from the intertidal reefs of Ningaloo, Western Australia. Yet despite its exploitation and importance in many artisanal fisheries throughout the world, little is known about its life history, ecology and vulnerability. We used stylet increment analysis to age a wild O. cyanea(More)
Due to the lack of standards for 3D graphics on the WWW and for embedded systems, developers suffer as they are required to choose between different technologies or to support multiple technologies depending on the goals of an application. These decisions affect the final product by introducing restrictions based on the technology, or requiring additional(More)
