The primary case was in a young Australian man , who was admitted to the Johannesburg Hospital after having toured Rhodesia. Two secondary cases occurred, one being in(More)
This study evaluated the effectiveness of group cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT) and group interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) for binge eating. Fifty-six women with nonpurging bulimia were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 groups: CBT, IPT, or a wait-list control (WL). Treatment was administered in small groups that met for 16 weekly sessions. At(More)
AbstractEffective execution of apoptosis requires the activation of caspases. However, in many cases, broad-range caspase inhibitors such as Z-VAD.fmk do not inhibit cell death because death signaling continues via basal caspase activities or caspase-independent processes. Although death mediators acting under caspase-inhibiting conditions have been(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the relative effectiveness of desipramine, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and their combination in the treatment of bulimia nervosa, together with the effects of withdrawing medication after two different lengths of treatment. METHOD Seventy-one patients meeting DSM-III-R criteria for bulimia nervosa, recruited from an eating(More)
A paucity of formally described information is available in the scientific literature regarding spinal subdural empyema. Patients presenting with neurological deterioration associated with subdural empyema are rarely identified, and treatment is often based upon anecdotal cases. The authors contribute three cases of primary cervical spinal subdural empyema(More)
Cysteamine bitartrate capsules (Cystagon) have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in patients with nephropathic cystinosis. Plasma cysteamine concentrations were virtually identical at various times following ingestion of either cysteamine hydrochloride or Cystagon capsules in 24 normal control subjects. A transfer study was done(More)
Toxic bile salts, retained within the liver because of impaired biliary excretion, are considered to play a major role in liver injury during cholestasis. Bile salts cause cellular stresses that may result in apoptosis. To better understand such cellular stresses, the effect of the bile salt sodium deoxycholate (NaDOC) on activation of 13 specific gene(More)
This is a prospective study of 500 consecutive patients having coronary artery bypass surgery; mean hospital charge from time of surgery to discharge was +11,900 +/- 12,700. Multiple regression analysis was performed using preoperative variables and postoperative complications. No preoperative clinical feature was a significant predictor of higher average(More)
Bax inhibitor-1 (BI-1) is an evolutionarily conserved pH-dependent Ca²⁺ leak channel in the endoplasmic reticulum and the founding member of a family of six highly hydrophobic mammalian proteins named transmembrane BAX inhibitor motif containing (TMBIM) 1-6 with BI-1 being TMBIM6. Here we compared the structure, subcellular localization, tissue expression(More)
