Tension testing of wet bovine haversian cortical bone demonstrated marked plastic behavior. Progressive surface decalcification of this bone with dilute hydrochloric acid resulted in progressive decreases in the tension yield point and the ultimate stress with no change in the yield strain or ultimate strain unless decalcification was complete. The slope of(More)
This report presents a pharmacokinetic model in the rat and rabbit of the direct quantification of mature bone resorption in vivo. This is based on a first-order reaction rate describing the release of [3H]tetracycline from bone. Compared with the previous method, the model has two new means of expressing bone resorption. First, resorption rate of bone is(More)
While an abnormal oral glucose tolerance test (GTT) is known to be associated with an increased risk of pregnancy complications, the impact of one abnormal value is not clear. In 1986 we screened 4618 pregnant women for gestational diabetes at 24-28 weeks' gestation. Eighty-seven percent had normal results; of the 13% with abnormal screening tests, 139 had(More)
Our goal in this study was to evaluate the effects of and the interaction between the hypothesized principal determinants of the incorporation of grafts: antigenicity and treatment of the graft. We implanted fresh and frozen cortical bone grafts that were matched for both major and non-major histocompatibility complex antigens (syngeneic grafts), matched(More)
The early (3 months) and later (6 months) patterns of incorporation and bone formation have been evaluated histomorphometrically for different types of bone grafts; that is, vascularized and nonvascularized autografts with and without ciclosporin, and vascularized and nonvascularized dog leukocyte antigen (DLA)-mismatched allografts with and without(More)
The 3H-tetracycline method of measuring bone resorption in vivo was applied to the comparison of various whole bones in rats of two different ages. The rat was chosen because it grows via modelling processes and contains little, if any, cortical remodelling except for a small amount of trabecular remodelling. It was found that resorption rates in vivo are(More)
Trichothiodystrophy is characterized by sparse, short, sulfur-deficient hair. Numerous symptom complexes have been described in which the hair abnormality represents a constant feature. We report a boy with trichothiodystrophy, ichthyotic skin changes, onychodystrophy, chronic neutropenia, osteosclerosis, hypothyroidism, nystagmus, growth and mental(More)
OBJECTIVE To ascertain the current knowledge base and screening practices of obstetrician-gynecologists in the area of domestic violence. METHODS We mailed a survey to 189 ACOG Fellows who are members of the Collaborative Ambulatory Research Network. Questionnaires were also mailed to a random sample of 1250 nonmember Fellows.
