INTRODUCTION 5α-reductase inhibitors (5α-RIs), finasteride and dutasteride, have been approved for treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms, due to benign prostatic hyperplasia, with marked clinical efficacy. Finasteride is also approved for treatment of hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). Although the adverse side effects of these agents are thought to be(More)
Fifteen patients aged between 26 and 55 years with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and various cerebral manifestations of the disease underwent an all-night sleep electroencephalogram (EEG) registration. The recordings of 15 age-matched volunteers were examined as controls. Sleep stages were determined visually and the following spectral(More)
We report on a 67-year-old male patient with progressive right-sided hemiparesis predominating in the arm and right-sided myoclonias. The EEG showed periodic delta activity in the left hemisphere. The patient died of pulmonary embolism 10 weeks after the onset of the symptoms. The neuropathological examination was indicative of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease:(More)
In June 1990, Santa Rosa Children's Hospital instituted a multitrack career ladder program for registered nurses, in response to the issues of retention of expert nursing staff and development of professional nursing practice. The program incorporates clinical, education, and management tracks, providing vertical and lateral mobility to the registered(More)
Imaging findings of morphology and regional cerebral blood flow in two patients suffering from epileptic seizures are presented. CT and MRI revealed heterotopic gray matter as a probable structural correlate, causing the seizure disorder. 99mTc hexamethyl-propylenamine oxime (HM-PAO) SPECT demonstrated focally increased regional cerebral blood flow in both(More)
The Army has contributed the bulk of deployed U.S. troops since 9/11 and has accrued substantial deployment experience. However, as combat operations conclude, soldiers separate from service, and Regular Army endstrength is reduced, this experience may be lost. This report analyzes recent data on soldiers and deployments and the retention of Regular Army(More)
Public reporting burden for the collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information.

15 male AIDS-patients from 26 to 55 years (mean 41.8 +/- 8.5) with various cerebral manifestations had a whole-night-sleep-EEG registration. As control the recordings of 15 age-matched volunteers (26-55 years, mean 41.8 +/- 9.8) were examined. Spectral characteristics of elementary EEG-epochs of 40 s length were computed, and sleep staging was performed(More)
