—Early experiences with books predict later reading success, and an interactive shared reading style called ''dialogic reading'' is especially beneficial to emergent literacy. Electronic console (EC) books, CD-rom books, and e-book apps are designed to teach preschoolers preliteracy skills, but research has yet to systematically explore the impact of these(More)
Valproic acid (VPA) may cause impaired platelet function, thrombocytopenia and, occasionally, severe bleeding. Controversy exists both as to the mechanism of this alteration in hemostasis and as to whether these adverse effects are either dose-related or idiosyncratic. Previous investigations have focused primarily on pediatric patients who commonly were(More)
Recent case reports describing prolonged neurologic deficit after accidental spinal anesthesia with large volumes of 2-chloroprocaine have led to the suggestion that chloroprocaine may be more likely to cause such complications than other local anesthetics. We evaluated the neurologic effects of lumbar puncture alone and of large-volume subarachnoid(More)
The blinking patterns of 15 soft contact lens wearers were recorded with a concealed video camera. Each of 20 consecutive blinks were graded, during slow motion replay of the video, as either complete, incomplete, forced, or twitch. Ten of these subjects were instructed to perform blinking exercises for a period of 2 weeks and the remaining 5 subjects acted(More)
In previous studies, female monkeys self-administered more oral phencyclidine (PCP) than males, and PCP intake differed by phase of menstrual cycle. The purpose of this study was to examine sex and hormonal influences on oral cocaine self-administration in male and female rhesus monkeys in the follicular vs. luteal phases of the menstrual cycle, with(More)

PURPOSE To review the response and outcomes of (177)Lu-DOTA-octreotate chemoradionuclide therapy (LuTate PRCRT) in patients with neuroendocrine tumour (NET) expressing high levels of somatostatin receptors with uncontrolled symptoms or disease progression. METHODS A total of 68 patients (39 men; 17 - 76 years of age) who had completed an induction course(More)
A teacher once told me, " Don't use a 50-cent word when a 5-cent word will do. " While current expression of such sentiments might differ, we commonly follow this practice in many early childhood classrooms. Adults often use simple words instead of complex words when talking to young children. Reasons vary from teach-ers' beliefs that young children cannot(More)
Total protein, alphafetoprotein, albumin, prealbumin, alpha-1-antitrypsin, transferrin and ceruloplasmin levels were measured in samples of human fetal and neonatal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) (97 cases), obtained between 12 and 41 weeks of gestation. In 39 of these cases (13 to 40 weeks gestation) plasma was also available for comparative analysis. CSF was(More)
