Therefore, the purpose of this study was to elucidate some of the central mechanisms regulating CT-induced satiety in a non-mammalian vertebrate, the chick.(More)
PURPOSE We present the clinical, genetic and histopathologic findings in two siblings with Muscle-Eye-Brain Disease (MEB-D), an autosomal recessive disease characterized by mental retardation, muscular dystrophy, retinal hypoplasia and brain abnormalities. METHODS Clinical, histopathologic and gene mapping studies of a family with two normal and two(More)

Of 711 patients with histologically proven carcinoma of the breast, 94 patients aged 65 years or older were treated primarily by operation. The long-term survival was comparable to that in the general population with breast cancer despite a high percentage of noncancer death from intercurrent disease. Surgical therapy appropriate for the stage of disease(More)
