Observations of neutral-current nu interactions on deuterium in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory are reported. Using the neutral current (NC), elastic scattering, and charged current reactions and assuming the standard 8B shape, the nu(e) component of the 8B solar flux is phis(e) = 1.76(+0.05)(-0.05)(stat)(+0.09)(-0.09)(syst) x 10(6) cm(-2) s(-1) for a(More)

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) has measured day and night solar neutrino energy spectra and rates. For charged current events, assuming an undistorted 8B spectrum, the night minus day rate is 14.0%+/-6.3%(+1.5%)(-1.4%) of the average rate. If the total flux of active neutrinos is additionally constrained to have no asymmetry, the nu(e) asymmetry is(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to examine the relationship between proximal aortic dilation and systemic vascular function in men with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). BACKGROUND Proximal aortic dilation in subjects with BAV is associated with structural and functional abnormalities in the ascending aorta. METHODS We studied 32 men (median age 31 years [range(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine, in sedentary normotensive postmenopausal women, the after-effects of exercise on systemic and regional hemodynamics, and whether changes in total peripheral conductance after exercise relate to changes in brachial artery flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD). METHODS In 13 sedentary postmenopausal women, the blood pressure (BP),(More)
Long-term nocturnal hemodialysis, which uses longer and more frequent sessions than conventional hemodialysis, lowers clinic blood pressure and left ventricular mass. We tested the hypotheses that short-term nocturnal hemodialysis would (1) reduce ambulatory blood pressure; (2) cause peripheral vasodilation; (3) lower plasma norepinephrine concentration;(More)
INTRODUCTION Previous studies have shown that traditional risk factors such as hypercholesterolemia and hypertension account for only a small proportion of the dramatically increased risk of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease (CAD) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). However, in these studies, exposure to risk factors was measured only at baseline.(More)
Data from the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory have been used to constrain the lifetime for nucleon decay to "invisible" modes, such as n-->3nu. The analysis was based on a search for gamma rays from the deexcitation of the residual nucleus that would result from the disappearance of either a proton or neutron from 16O. A limit of tau(inv)>2 x 10(29) yr is(More)
We report on an infant with an as yet undescribed partial duplication 5q(q22----5q33). He had a number of the already recorded manifestations of partial trisomy 5q, namely microcephaly, growth retardation, brachydactyly, long flat philtrum, thin upper lip vermilion and downturned angles of mouth and apparently low set ears. He survived only 6 months. He(More)
von Willebrand Factor (VWF) is a large multimeric glycoprotein involved in the transport and protection of factor VIII and in mediating platelet-subendothelium and platelet-platelet interactions. We have documented the presence of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) at nucleotide (nt) -1793 (G 0.36 or C 0.64) in the VWF 5'-flanking sequence. This(More)
