In order to obtain an experimental model we induced mammary tumors in female Sprague-Dawley rats. The carcinogen N-nitroso-N-methylurea (NMU) was injected intraperitoneally (i.p.) at doses of 50 mg/kg body weight when animals were 50, 80 and 110 days old. Tumor sizes were measured with a caliper and their growth parameters and histopathological properties(More)
Abstract We present an integral equation method for conformal mapping of doubly connected regions onto a unit disc with a circular slit of radius μ < 1. Our theoretical development is based on the boundary integral equation for conformal mapping of doubly connected region derived by Murid and Razali [15]. In this paper, using the boundary relationship(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 3 to 5 have an increased risk of cardiac and other vascular disease. Here we examined the association of CKD 3 to 5 with small vessel caliber. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS This was a cross-sectional observational study of 126 patients with CKD stages 3 to 5(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Retinal abnormalities are common in inherited and acquired renal disease. This study determined the prevalence of retinal abnormalities in chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 3 to 5. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS One hundred fifty patients with CKD stages 3 to 5 and 150 age- and gender-matched hospital patients(More)
13158 Background: We have previously reported that O-LM inhibited malignant cell proliferation in vitro and in vivo, increasing survival in rodent tumor models. We also demonstrated a protective action of O-LM against undesirable effects of chemotherapy and ionizing radiation, enhancing their therapeutic action. Furthermore, O-LM applied to patients with(More)
Subcutaneous body fat and Quetelet's Indices (QI) of 52, 18-29 year old normal female volunteers were determined. These body mass indices were then grouped according to the phase of each subject's menstrual cycle, early or late follicular and early or late luteal phase. The subcutaneous body fat is 27.07 +or- 1.0% in the early follicular but drops to(More)
A mechanomyography muscle contraction (MC) sensor, affixed to the skin surface, was used to quantify muscle tension during repetitive functional electrical stimulation (FES)-evoked isometric rectus femoris contractions to fatigue in individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Nine persons with motor complete SCI were seated on a commercial muscle dynamometer(More)
