Cutaneous flexor reflex thresholds have been used as a measure of somatosensory function: the authors measured threshold in preterm infants and newborn rat pups. Preterm infants of less than 30 weeks postconceptional age (PCA) had very low thresholds of less than 1.0 g, but by 37.5+ weeks PCA thresholds were equivalent to those in normal term babies,(More)
Two newborns of mothers carrying hepatitis B and at high risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection developed HIV-positive test results by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and Western blot tests after birth. Both had been administered hepatitis B immune globulin within 48 hours of birth. Serological tests detected HIV antibody as long as 17 days(More)
[structure: see text]. A general approach to functionalized hexahydroanthracene dione skeletons is described. The planar dicarbonyl triene 15 cyclized spontaneously upon oxidation of the precursor diol 14 to the tricyclicdiketone 16. The adducts 16 and 2 were further transformed to the corresponding epoxides and oxetanes as a model for the D ring of taxoids.
