We examined Lancefield serogroup B Streptococcus isolates recovered from diseased, cultured hybrid Striped Bass (Striped Bass Morone saxatilis × White Bass M. chrysops) and wild and cultured Gulf Killifish Fundulus grandis from coastal waters of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico (Gulf coast) and compared those isolates to strains from tilapias Oreochromis spp. reared(More)
The need for cold, well-oxygenated waters significantly reduces the habitat available for lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) during stratification of small temperate lakes. We examined the spatial and pelagic distribution of lake trout over two consecutive summers and winters and tested whether winter increased habitat availability and access to littoral(More)
The absence of absolute calibration data for geodetic-quality Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers and their associated equipment has limited the application of these instruments for time transfer. We have conducted a series of tests in order to calibrate two such geodetic receivers. Receiver calibration is made with respect to a dual-frequency GPS(More)
Next-generation oral anticoagulants offer the potential for effective prevention and treatment of thrombosis without the need for repeated monitoring of the international normalized ratio (INR). This systematic review evaluated the costs associated with INR monitoring tests performed as part of the standard management of oral anticoagulation with vitamin K(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the economic impact of using tibolone 2.5 mg compared with 17 beta-estradiol 2 mg/norethisterone acetate 1 mg (E2/NETA) in postmenopausal women with climacteric symptoms. DESIGN AND SETTING This was a modelling study performed from the perspective of the UK's National Health Service (NHS). METHODS The clinical outcomes from a(More)
We coupled dynamic optimization and bioenergetics models to assess the assumption that lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) depth distribution is structured by temperature, food availability, and predation risk to maximize reproductive mass by autumn spawning. Because the model uses empirical daily thermal-depth profiles recorded in a small boreal shield lake(More)
