Because clozapine may be prescribed to cocaine abusing patients with schizophrenia, we studied cocaine-clozapine interactions in a controlled setting. Eight male cocaine addicts underwent four oral challenges with ascending doses of clozapine (12.5, 25 and 50 mg) and placebo followed 2 h later by a 2-mg/kg dose of intranasal cocaine. Subjective and(More)
We investigate the feasibility of trans-rectal optical tomography of the prostate using an endo-rectal near-infrared (NIR) applicator that is to be integrated with a trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) probe. Integration with TRUS ensures accurate endo-rectal positioning of the NIR applicator and the utility of using TRUS spatial prior information to guide NIR(More)
To determine the efficacy of epidural morphine during labor and delivery, 40 healthy parturients who requested epidural analgesia were randomly given either a single injection of morphine sulfate (2 mg, n = 9; 5 mg, n = 10; or 7.5 mg, n = 11) or 0.5% bupivacaine (n = 10). Bupivacaine provided excellent analgesia in all patients. Morphine (2 or 5 mg) did not(More)
Near Infrared Diffuse Optical Tomography has the potential to be used as a non-invasive imaging tool for biological tissue specifically for the diagnosis and characterization of breast cancer. Most model based reconstruction algorithms rely on calculating and inverting a large Jacobian matrix. Although this method is flexible for a wide range of complex(More)
Recent case reports describing prolonged neurologic deficit after accidental spinal anesthesia with large volumes of 2-chloroprocaine have led to the suggestion that chloroprocaine may be more likely to cause such complications than other local anesthetics. We evaluated the neurologic effects of lumbar puncture alone and of large-volume subarachnoid(More)
Using panel data on 30 provinces in China from 2005 to 2012, this paper conducts an empirical test on the threshold effect of the relationship between financial development and carbon emission intensity from the perspectives of financial scale and financial efficiency. The results show that at a low level of per capita GDP, the expansion of the financial(More)
In 2 fetuses with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) with hydrops, in-utero resection of the enlarged pulmonary lobe reduced mediastinal shift and allowed expansion of normal lung tissue in both cases. In case 1, the 27-week-gestation fetus died from severe hydrops after premature delivery. In case 2, fetal CCAM resection was completed at 23(More)
Soil health, along with water supply, is the most valuable resource for humans, as human life depends on the soil's generosity. Soil degradation, therefore, poses a threat to food security, as it reduces yield, forces farmers to use more inputs, and may eventually lead to soil abandonment. Unfortunately, the importance of preserving soil health appears to(More)
China's cement production has been the highest worldwide for decades and contributes significant environmental pollution. Using a non-radical DEA model with slacks-based measure (SBM), this paper analyzes the environmental efficiency of China's listed cement companies. The results suggest that the average mean of the environmental efficiency for the listed(More)
1 2 Blending H 2 with natural gas in spark ignition engines can increase for electric efficiency. In-situ H 2 3 production for spark ignition engines fuelled by natural gas has therefore been investigated recently, and 4 reformed exhaust gas recirculation (RGR) has been identified a potentially advantageous approach: RGR 5 uses the steam and O 2 contained(More)
