Mycobacterium avium was recovered from 21 birds and 10 pigs. Bird isolates carried IS901 and a few copies of IS1245 and appeared highly related by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Pig isolates showed features previously described in human isolates: a lack of IS901, a high copy number of IS1245, and marked polymorphism by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis.
In this study, a historical phenolic (Bakelite) molding material, BMMA-5353, was tested to determine the airborne concentrations of asbestos fibers released during four different activities (sawing, sanding, drilling, and cleanup of dust generated from these activities). Each activity was performed for 30 min, often in triplicate. The primary objective for(More)
Over the past few years, a question has arisen about the degree of exposure to airborne asbestos associated with the application, cleanup, and tear-out of glues and mastics used between 1940 and the present. These liquid products were used either to adhere insulation to pipes and boilers or to cover the insulation so as to protect it. In this study, four(More)
The goal of the present study was to examine parental characteristics associated with the emergence of infant colic using a prospective longitudinal study. When infants were 2 weeks of age, parent measures of personality, marital satisfaction, parenting stress, and social support were obtained. In addition, parents were asked about their definition of(More)
BACKGROUND Several mutations in CYP21 locus cause 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21-OHD). The most common mutations are widespread among different geographic areas and their frequencies have been also reported to differ among certain populations. AIM To obtain a large view on the frequencies of the most common mutations in the CYP21 locus, in Sicily, in the(More)
Objectives: Clear benefits of minimally invasive surgery to patients are shorter hospitalization, less preoperative evaluation and diagnostic studies, less intense postoperative care, earlier return to family, strenuous activities and work, and less interaction with the physician, surgeon, nurse, and other healthcare team personnel. These positive effects(More)
