OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that maternal restriction of polyphenol-rich foods (PRF), which, like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), inhibit prostaglandin synthesis in the third trimester, reverse fetal ductal constriction (DC). STUDY DESIGN An open clinical trial of 51 third trimester fetuses with DC with no history of NSAID intake was(More)
The effect of the magnetic necklace on chronic neck and shoulder pain was studied on 101 volunteers, 46 males and 55 females. A double-blind method was applied on 4 divided groups (with pain vs without pain matched with magnetic vs nonmagnetic necklace). All the subjects wore the necklace 24 hours per day for 3 weeks.

AIM To compare the efficacy of two preoperative steroid regimens for cataract surgery in patients with uveitis. METHODS 40 uveitis patients with cataract underwent phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. Preoperatively they were randomised into two groups: group 1 (20 patients) received a single dose of intravenous methylprednisolone(More)
Objective: To test the hypothesis that maternal consumption of polyphenol-rich foods during third trimester interferes with fetal ductal dynamics by inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. Study Design: In a prospective analysis, Doppler ductal velocities and right-to-left ventricular dimensions ratio of 102 fetuses exposed to polyphenol-rich foods (daily(More)
— Software development managers recognize that project teams need to be developed and managed. Although technical skills are necessary, non-technical (NT) skills are equally necessary for project success. There are several tools that assist in measuring the effectiveness of the technical skills that teams use to perform projects, but there are no proven(More)
