BACKGROUND Vibrio vulnificus is a gram-negative bacterium that causes septicaemia and wound infection. Cases occur sporadically, and no previous outbreaks due to a common source or a clonal strain have been reported. In the summer and autumn of 1996 and 1997, an outbreak of invasive V. vulnificus infection occurred in Israel in people who had recently… (More)
Great spectral simplification can be obtained by spreading the conventional one-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrum in two independent frequency dimensions. This so-called two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy removes spectral overlap, facilitates spectral assignment, and provides a wealth of additional information. For example, conformational… (More)
Teaching modern methods of high resolution, multi-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy in the limited time usually available is a challenge because of the breadth and complexity of the subject. Here we present two outlines for lectures on basic principles and biophysical applications of NMR, either in one lecture or in six to twelve… (More)
– We present an architecture for fail-silent operation of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and configurable System-on-Chip (SoC) implementations. The architecture includes replication of the system function separated by a guard band region that guarantees that no single fault can allow interaction between the replicated system functions. The outputs… (More)
Bulimia, like anorexia nervosa, primarily affects women. Although survey reports have shown that as many as 10%-13% of students meeting DSM-III criteria for bulimia are male, 1,2 detailed clinical descriptions of male bulimic patients are rare. The following case reports describe three men seen for evaluation of bulimia at the UCLA Eating Disorders Clinic.
