We enrolled 42 patients with nonseptic olecranon bursitis in a double-blind prospective treatment trial to compare the efficacy of an intrabursal steroid preparation with that of an oral anti-inflammatory agent. Patients were randomized into one of four treatment regimens: (1) methylprednisolone acetate (20 mg) intrabursal injection and oral naproxen (1 g/d… (More)
To determine the efficacy of intravenous streptokinase in acute myocardial infarction, 52 patients were randomized to intravenous streptokinase or control groups. Time from onset of infarction to randomization was similar in the streptokinase group and control group, 4.9 +/- 2.1 hours vs 5.4 +/- 2.4 hours, respectively. The 28 streptokinase patients… (More)
Forty-six consecutive cases of olecranon bursitis were prospectively analyzed during a 1-year period. Eleven cases were septic; 35 cases were nonseptic. In addition to bursal fluid analysis, the surface temperature over the involved olecranon bursa and the contralateral (control) olecranon process was obtained by using a surface temperature probe. We… (More)
An unprecedented AlCl3-mediated method has been developed involving aromatic C-H bond addition to an alkyne and heteroarylation of an arene in a single pot leading to densely functionalized novel olefins, e.g. 2-(2,2-diarylvinyl)-3-arylquinoxalines, as potential inhibitors of sirtuins.
A frequent complication of the common cold, sinusitis is one of the most prevalent problems seen in general medical and emergency department practices. In addition, nosocomial sinus infection, particularly in intensive care units, is being recognized more frequently. Decision making about managing patients with sinusitis is based primarily on the history… (More)
An improved understanding of medical problems of alcoholic patients can be gained from commonly encountered laboratory test results. Liver function tests--such as measures of alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, and lactate dehydrogenase--may provide evidence of altered hepatic activity… (More)
Alcoholism affects 3 to 10 per cent of the American population. Alcohol is toxic to all organ systems. This article summarizes current information about the hematologic sequelae of alcohol abuse. A brief summary of ethanol-related metabolic events is followed by discussion of specific disorders of erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, and the immune… (More)
