DBH is a candidate gene in Parkinson's disease (PD) and contains a putative functional polymorphism (-1021C-->T) that has been reported to modify PD susceptibility. We examined -1021C-->T in a sample of 1,244 PD patients and 1,186 unrelated control subjects. There was no significant difference in allele (p = 0.14) or genotype (p = 0.26) frequencies between(More)
We present our experience with the C-arm image intensifier in the localization of renal calculi. We have found this technique to be exceptionally easy to use and extraordinarily efficient. However, unless the disk images are used primarily, rather than continuous fluoroscopy, the radiation exposure can be significant. This technique can be somewhat limiting(More)
DBH is a candidate gene in Parkinson's disease (PD) and contains a putative functional polymorphism (-1021C3 T) that has been reported to modify PD susceptibility. We examined Ϫ1021C3 T in a sample of 1,244 PD patients and 1,186 unrelated control subjects. There was no significant difference in allele (p ϭ 0.14) or genotype (p ϭ 0.26) frequencies between(More)
