However, the impact of perioperative hyperglycemia on clinical outcome in general and noncardiac surgery patients is not known. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This was an observational study with(More)
BACKGROUND Environmental contexts associated with drug use can trigger craving in humans and the renewal of drug-seeking behaviors in animals. Here, we tested the hypothesis that context-induced renewal of Pavlovian-conditioned alcohol-seeking is mediated by dopamine. METHODS Male, Long-Evans rats were trained to discriminate between two, 10-second,(More)
BACKGROUND Gabapentin (GPT), a widely used drug in neurology, has been proposed as a non-hormonal option for the management of hot flushes in menopausal women with contraindications for estrogen therapy. OBJECTIVE To compare GPT versus low-dose transdermal estradiol (E(2)) for treating post-menopausal women with moderate to very severe hot flushes. (More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of the PF4 ENHANCED (GTI Diagnostics, Waukesha, WI) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia using the carbon-14 serotonin-release assay as the reference method. DESIGN A total of 34 patients were prospectively enrolled with a variety of diagnoses and suspected(More)
Rainwater harvesting (RWH) and greywater reuse (GWR) are increasingly being considered at the building-level to achieve multiple goals. Cost-benefit assessments facilitate decision-making; however, most are focused on large-scale systems with limited information available for households from developing countries. To better understand the prioritization of(More)

There is considerable evidence that many individual characteristics and experiential variables can modulate(More)
