We evaluated 18 of 23 patients who had undergone cryopreserved meniscal allograft transplantation for compartmental pain after total meniscectomy 2 to 8 years (mean, 5.4) after the operation. The Short Form-36 scores revealed a decrease in pain with a significant improvement in function, although function remained limited. There was no significant decrease(More)
Over 50 phenyl thiazolyl urea and carbamate derivatives were synthesized for evaluation as new inhibitors of bacterial cell-wall biosynthesis. Many of them demonstrated good activity against MurA and MurB and gram-positive bacteria including MRSA, VRE and PRSP. 3,4-Difluorophenyl 5-cyanothiazolylurea (3p) with clog P of 2.64 demonstrated antibacterial(More)
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), a severe mental disease manifested in time-consuming repetition of behaviors, affects 1 to 3% of the human population. While highly heritable, complex genetics has hampered attempts to elucidate OCD etiology. Dogs suffer from naturally occurring compulsive disorders that closely model human OCD, manifested as an(More)
REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Crib-biting is an equine stereotype that may result in diseases such as colic. Certain breeds and management factors have been associated. OBJECTIVES To determine: breed prevalence of crib-biting in US horses; the likelihood that one horse learns to crib-bite from another; and owner perceptions of causal factors. METHODS An(More)
Synthesis and SAR of N-[4-[(4,5-dihydropyrazolo[3,4-d]thieno[3,2-b]azepin-6(2H)-y l)carbonyl]phenyl]benzamides as arginine vasopressin (AVP) receptor antagonists are discussed. Potent orally active AVP receptor antagonists are produced when the benzamide moiety contains a phenyl group at the 2-position. Similar analogues of(More)
The synthesis of a series of 6-(substituted-phenyl)-1,2,4-triazolo[4,3-b]pyridazines (VIII) is reported. Some of these derivatives show activity in tests predictive of anxiolytic activity [(a) protection against pentylenetetrazole-induced convulsions; (b) thirsty rat conflict procedure]. They also represent a new class of compound which inhibits(More)
