We synthesized data from 66 published laboratory studies, representing 597 experimental comparisons, examining the effects of cyanobacterial toxicity and morphology on the population growth rate and survivorship of 17 genera (34 species) of freshwater, herbivorous zooplankton. Two meta-analyses were conducted with these data. The primary analysis compared(More)
We conducted spatial regression analysis to account for spatial clustering of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and to examine the state-level association between social capital (using Putnam's public use data set) and rates of gonorrhea and syphilis. We conducted the analysis for the 48 contiguous states of the United States for 1990, 1995, and 2000 and(More)
RATIONALE Chronic cocaine use results in long-lasting neurochemical changes that persist beyond the acute withdrawal period. Previous work from our group reported a profound reduction in the acoustic startle response (ASR) in chronic cocaine-dependent subjects in early abstinence compared to healthy controls that may be related to long-lasting(More)
Concern about the potentially diabetogenic effect of antipsychotics has existed since the introduction of chlorpromazine in the 1950s.

We undertook a retrospective cohort analysis of 484 patients receiving outpatient(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the test-retest reliability and the repeatability over multiple days of a robotic testing device when used to measure laxity of the lower leg during a simulated dial test. METHODS Ten healthy subjects were evaluated using an instrumented robotic lower leg testing system over 4 days. Three testing cycles(More)
