The present study investigates whether there is a link(More)
AIM Combination of laparoscopic ileal interposition (II) with sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is an upcoming procedure, which offers good metabolic improvement and weight reduction without causing significant malabsorption. The objective of this study was to evaluate the results of this novel procedure for control of type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and(More)
Proteasome inhibition is an effective treatment strategy for multiple myeloma. With improving survival, attention is increasingly focusing on ease of administration and toxicity profile. Ixazomib is an investigational, orally bioavailable 20S proteasome inhibitor. Sixty patients with relapsed and/or refractory multiple myeloma were enrolled on this phase 1(More)
BACKGROUND Bariatric surgery offers the best solution in management of obesity and related metabolic ailments, paving the way for a concept termed metabolic surgery. We report the results of a novel surgical procedure on glycemic control and metabolic syndrome in poorly controlled type 2 diabetes. METHODS Ten patients (four men, six women) underwent(More)
Through a research/development collaboration, we have applied the FAST domain engineering process to the audits software in Lucent Technologies' 5ESS telephone switching system. Our collaboration has developed an application-oriented language, toolset, and accompanying process for specifying the requirements and generating the code for the 5ESS audits(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE We compare the pain of intravenous (IV) cannulation in pediatric emergency department (ED) patients after applying a topical lidocaine/tetracaine patch versus placebo. We hypothesized that application of the active patch would reduce the pain of IV cannulation by at least 15 mm. METHODS We conducted a randomized, double-blind,(More)
BACKGROUND Olanzapine associated weight gain (WG) is a major concern in patients with schizophrenia. The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of topiramate to prevent olanzapine induced WG in these cases. We also studied various metabolic parameters. METHODS In this 12-week, double-blind, parallel group study, seventy-two drug-naïve,(More)
PURPOSE To determine the safety and tolerability of ABT-869 at escalating doses and its effects on biomarkers relevant for antiangiogenic activity in patients with solid malignancies. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with solid malignancies refractory to or for which no standard effective therapy exists were enrolled onto escalating-dose cohorts and treated(More)
BACKGROUND The combination of bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone is a highly effective therapy for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Ixazomib is an investigational, oral, proteasome inhibitor with promising anti-myeloma effects and low rates of peripheral neuropathy. In a phase 1/2 trial we aimed to assess the safety, tolerability, and activity of(More)
This retrospective study examined whether a delay of greater than 12 hours is associated with an increased risk of perioperative complications in the operative treatment of supracondylar humerus fractures in children. Of 150 consecutive children with supracondylar fractures, 50 underwent surgery in less than 12 hours and 100 underwent surgery greater than(More)
