This is one of a series of statements discussing training issues for gastrointestinal endoscopy. The Training Committee of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy prepared this text. A previous guideline related to this topic (Gastrointest Endosc 1998:47;669-71) was published in 1998. Since that time, new information has become available which(More)
Medical imaging involving the use of ionizing radiation has brought enormous benefits to society and patients. In the past several decades, exposure to medical radiation has increased markedly, driven primarily by the use of computed tomography. Ionizing radiation has been linked to carcinogenesis. Whether low-dose medical radiation exposure will result in(More)
Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the United States. The prognosis for heart disease is worse for women than for men. Also, although women are less likely than men to initially present with a myocardial infarction (MI), they are more likely to die following an MI. A number of factors have been identified that partially account for(More)
Previous research showed an effect of words' rated body-object interaction (BOI) in children's visual word naming performance, but only in children 8 years of age or older (Wellsby and Pexman, 2014a). In that study, however, BOI was established using adult ratings. Here we collected ratings from a group of parents for children's BOI experience (child-BOI).(More)
Incubating 32P-labeled fat cells with insulin increased by as much as 80-fold the amount of 32Pi in a soluble species of apparent Mr 62,000. This species, designated isp62, was specifically immunoprecipitated from cellular extracts with a monoclonal antibody against the type II regulatory subunit (RII) of cAMP-dependent protein kinase. Fat-cell RII,(More)
Mitogens generally stimulate human IgG subclass production in amounts proportional to their abundance in serum (IgG1 greater than IgG2 greater than IgG3 greater than IgG4). We report here that a combination of Staphylococcus aureus Cowan strain I and pokeweed mitogen consistently stimulates human peripheral blood lymphocytes in vitro to preferentially(More)
