UNLABELLED The dose-dependent effect of ibandronate treatment on bone mass and architecture was assessed in a large animal study of OVX monkeys using microCT for quantitative bone morphometry and biomechanical testing for measures of bone strength. The study showed that intermittent ibandronate preserved lumbar spine bone quality and strength in these(More)
Nonprescription medications are relatively safe, but not risk-free and can lead to serious adverse events, particularly if used contrary to directions or without attention to depicted warnings. The question arises whether the information presented on the product label is readable and comprehensible to the average lay person. We examined the product labels(More)

Outcome of acute renal failure (ARF) and use of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) have shown a consistently high mortality. (1) Evaluate the short-term patient survival. (2) Evaluate dialysis-free survival. (3) Evaluate risk factors associated with overall survival and the continued need for intermittent dialysis. We identified adults (>/=18(More)
PURPOSE Patients with claudication have altered gait, characterized by slower pace and shorter stride length, compared with matched controls. Rhythmic auditory music stimulation has been used successfully to reduce symptoms of pain and improve walking ability in patients with neurological gait alterations. The purpose of this study was to test the(More)
