Altered calcium homeostasis may play a central role in the liver injury produced by some toxicants. Therefore, the dose and time dependent effects of TCDD on calcium distribution in whole homogenate and subcellular fractions of liver were examined. Groups of female rats were treated with 40 micrograms TCDD/kg for 1, 2 or 3 days. Animals treated with TCDD(More)
Eight adenosine analogs, 3-deaza-adenosine (DZA), 3-deaza-(+/-)aristeromycin (DZAri), 2',3'-dideoxy-adenosine (ddAdo), 2',3'-dideoxy-3-deaza-adenosine (ddDZA), 2',3'-dideoxy-3-deaza-(+/-)aristeromycin (ddDZAri), 3-deaza-5'-(+/-)noraristeromycin (DZNAri), 3-deaza-neplanocin A (DZNep), and neplanocin A (NepA), were tested as inhibitors of human placenta(More)
We elicited from medical house staff their preferences for e-mail and alphanumeric pager as communication channels for the delivery of 18 different types of clinical information about their inpatients. For each type, we calculated the proportion of users who preferred delivery by e-mail, pager, both, or neither (usual delivery). For 14/18 (78%) types, more(More)
The ability to have access to information relevant to patient care is essential within the healthcare environment. To meet the information needs of its workers, healthcare information systems must fulfill a variety of functional requirements. One of these requirements is to define how workers will interact with the system to gain the information they need.(More)
The purpose of this stability study was to determine the beyond-use date of the active ingredient methimazole extemporaneously prepared for transdermal absorption to treat feline hyperthyroidism. The methimazole was prepared in poloxamer lecithin organogel and subjected to a three-month stability study. It was determined that under room temperature(More)
Although the literature on event monitoring is extensive, it does not cover all issues that we encountered while developing an event monitor at our institution. We had to resolve issues related to event detection, scalability, what topics were suitable for asynchronous decision support, and overlap of efforts of other groups at the institution attempting to(More)
Single oral doses of 300 mg of methyprylon were administered to 10 healthy volunteers. Plasma concentrations of methyprylon and its dehydro metabolite were measured using a recently developed HPLC assay. Plasma concentration-time data were fitted to a two-compartment model with either first-order absorption, zero-order absorption, or two consecutive,(More)
We developed a clinical event monitor that is currently deployed in an inpatient setting. We selected CLIPS as the basis for its KB and inference engine. This paper describes the considerations that went into that decision, how we represented drug and laboratory knowledge in CLIPSs, and how we extended CLIPS to deal with temporal inferences. We also review(More)
