To determine whether sleep problems commonly seen in pediatric practice, such as conflicts at bedtime and night waking, are associated with more pervasive disturbances in the child or family, two groups of healthy children were studied. Interview data from a pilot sample were examined to identify factors that might be important in sleep problems, and then… (More)
Calcitonin was extracted from surgically-derived prostate tissue, and quantified using radioimmunoassay. Normal prostatic specimens contained 15.18 +/- 10.03 ng./gm. wet weight (mean +/- S.D., n = 20), with a range of 1.50 to 39.62 ng./gm. The result for the hyperplastic tissue samples (n = 20) averaged 0.63 +/- 0.39 ng./gm. with a range of 0.22 to 1.49… (More)
The prevalence and correlates of sleeping in the parental bed among healthy children between 6 months and 4 years of age are described. One hundred fifty children were enrolled in an interview study on the basis of "well-child" care appointments in representative pediatric facilities. The sample created was similar in demographic characteristics to census… (More)
Malignant melanoma of the scrotum is the rarest of primary genitourinary melanomas, with only 3 cases reported previously. We present an additional case of this often aggressive malignancy. The pertinent literature is reviewed and the current management strategies are discussed.
Epidemiological evidence suggests positive correlations between pesticide usage and the incidence of Parkinson's disease (PD). To further explore this relationship, we used wild type (N2) Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) to test the following hypothesis: Exposure to a glyphosate-containing herbicide (TD) and/or a manganese/zinc… (More)
A case of primary seminal vesicle carcinoma is described and is discussed in the context of current knowledge regarding the clinicopathologic features of this rare neoplasm.
The finding of significant numbers of endocrine-paracrine (EP) cells in the prostate glands of guinea pigs and man suggests that these cells may be important in the regulation or modulation of prostatic function. Serotonin is a biogenic amine common to most prostatic EP cells. In order to extend current knowledge relating to these cells, an assay was… (More)
Several other newer therapeutic modalities are being investigated to determine their potential role in the treatment of prostate cancer. Cryotherapy, microwave hyperthermia, laser therapy, and high-intensity focused ultrasound have all been introduced in recent years. Each of these techniques is based on a different principle, yet they all attempt to kill… (More)
