Brain-stem auditory evoked potentials were recorded in 35 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-seropositive subjects from the Centers for Disease Control groups III and IV, 24 HIV-negative drug abusers, and 62 normal healthy controls. None of the patients had evidence of neurological complications. History of alcohol consumption was an exclusion criterion.(More)
Lithium-stuffed garnets attract huge attention due to their outstanding potential as solid-state electrolytes for lithium batteries. However, there exists a persistent challenge in the reliable synthesis of these complex functional oxides together with a lack of complete understanding of the lithium-ion diffusion mechanisms in these important materials.(More)
INTRODUCTION Interleukin-6 (IL-6) has been identified as a predictor of death, new heart failure (HF) episodes and need for heart transplantation in patients with advanced HF. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between plasma IL-6 levels in patients with decompensated HF and either survival or new admissions due to HF. METHODS We(More)
By exploring co-complexation reactions between the manganese alkyl Mn(CH2SiMe3)2 and the heavier alkali-metal alkyls M(CH2SiMe3) (M=Na, K) in a benzene/hexane solvent mixture and in some cases adding Lewis donors (bidentate TMEDA, 1,4-dioxane, and 1,4-diazabicyclo[2,2,2] octane (DABCO)) has produced a new family of alkali-metal tris(alkyl) manganates. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Sensory motor multifocal acquired demyelinating neuropathy (SMMADN) is a variant of the chronic multifocal neuropathies. Several reports have been published about the clinical and electrophysiological progression in motor multifocal neuropathy (MMN) prior to and following immunoglobulin (Ig) therapy, but we have found no reports that deal with(More)
The development of all solid-state lithium batteries is reliant on suitable high performance solid state electrolytes. Here, we present the synthesis and ionic conductivity of the Inand Y-doped Li6Hf2O7 materials; Li6+xHf2-xMxO7 (M = In3+, Y3+). Microwaveassisted synthesis was used to give phase pure material after heating for 4 hours at 850◦C. The ionic(More)
