We measured concentrations and ratios of mutagenic (8-OH) lesions to putatively nonmutagenic formamidopyrimidine (Fapy) lesions of adenine (Ade) and guanine (Gua) to elucidate radical (.OH)-induced changes in DNA of normal, normal from cancer, and cancer tissues of the prostate. The relationship between the lesions was expressed using the mathematical model(More)
As part of an ongoing longitudinal cohort study of children with mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury and their matched controls, the neurobehavioral status of 94 case-control pairs was assessed one year after initial postinjury testing. There was a statistically significant dose-response association of severity with performance in all six(More)
The outcome following mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) is controversial. We addressed this topic in a study of neurobehavioural and 'real-world' functioning among 53 children with mild TBI and their matched controls, using statistical methods recently developed for multiple comparisons. Because the study involved calculation of 414 p-values, four methods(More)
This cohort study investigated the magnitude of neurobehavioral, academic, and "real world" deficits over the course of 3 years in children with mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), and their individually matched controls. This series of analyses addresses the history of recovery, tracing changes in performance over time. Data on 72(More)
Although early antidepressant clinical trials simply relied on a clinician's judgment as to whether a depressed patient clinically improved or not, the Hamilton Depression (HAM-D) rating scale has become the 'gold standard' to assess the efficacy of new antidepressants. The alternative Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) has not achieved(More)
This study examined the ability of early measures of traumatic brain injury (TBI) severity to predict neurobehavioral and functional skill outcomes shortly after injury and at 1 year postinjury. Ninety-eight children aged 6 to 15 years with TBI were consecutively identified on presentation to two regional medical centers. Ten measures of TBI severity were(More)
UNLABELLED The etiology of transient neurologic symptoms (TNS) after 5% lidocaine spinal anesthesia remains undetermined. Previous case reports have shown that patients acutely experiencing TNS have no abnormalities on neurologic examination or magnetic resonance imaging. The aim of our study was to determine whether volunteers with TNS would exhibit(More)
Several factors contribute to the variability observed among repeated measurements of breath alcohol concentration. Identifying these factors and the magnitude of their contribution is the focus of this study. Large breath alcohol data sets consisting of duplicate test results from drivers arrested for driving while intoxicated were obtained from four(More)
