Forty-two hematological and biochemical variables routinely measured in dogs as part of a preoperative protocol have been analyzed for circannual changes by analysis of variance (ANOVA) and single cosinor procedures. Data were available from up to 489 adult mongrel dogs of both sexes studied on weekdays over a 5-year span (January 5, 1987 to December 18,(More)
Systolic and mean pressure gradients across internal carotid stenoses were measured at the time of carotid endarterectomy in the arteries of 90 patients, all of whom underwent angiography. Eighty-two of these patients also had pulsed Doppler ultrasonic arteriography with real-time spectrum analysis. There were 71 (79%) high grade stenoses of greater than(More)
Discovering unknown adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in postmarketing surveillance as early as possible is of great importance. The current approach to postmarketing surveillance primarily relies on spontaneous reporting. It is a passive surveillance system and limited by gross underreporting (<10% reporting rate), latency, and inconsistent reporting. We(More)
Acute renal failure can be produced by interruption of the arterial blood supply. We describe a case of acute renal failure that developed owing to thrombosis of the renal artery of the only functioning kidney. This thrombosis occurred in an artery that was stenosed probably by an arteriosclerotic plaque. The blood flow was re-established successfully by(More)
PURPOSE Educational interventions to reduce the use of abbreviations and dosage designations that were deemed unsafe at a level 1 trauma center are described. SUMMARY Strategies to reduce the use of unsafe abbreviations at Detroit Receiving Hospital were studied. Six abbreviations and dosage designations were deemed as unsafe by the site's medication-use(More)
The mechanism of blocked replication of human adenoviruses in monkey cells was examined. Previous experiments have placed the replicative block at the level of transcription of translation of adenovirus mRNA. Coinfection of the monkey cells with simian virus 40 enhances adenovirus replication in these cells. We compared the adenovirus mRNA transcribed(More)
