Quantum Dot Superlattice Thermoelectric Materials and Devices
PbSeTe-based quantum dot superlattice structures grown by molecular beam epitaxy have been investigated for applications in thermoelectrics. We demonstrate improved cooling values relative to theExpand
Characterization of subendometrial myometrial contractions throughout the menstrual cycle in normal fertile women.
The objective was to study the characteristics of ultrasonographically detected subendometrial myometrial contractions. The contractions were evaluated by 328 ultrasound scans throughout theExpand

The effect of cigarette smoking on ovarian function and early pregnancy outcome of in vitro fertilization treatment.
A retrospective analysis of the results of the first attempt at in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment in 447 couples was performed by chart review. In 124 couples the female partners smokedExpand
The prediction of ovulation: a comparison of the basal body temperature graph, cervical mucus score, and real-time pelvic ultrasonography.
Ninety-five menstrual cycles were studied in 20 women undergoing donor artificial insemination (AID). In 49 cycles basal body temperature (BBT) changes were charted daily and both daily cervicalExpand
Mechanisms of control of prolactin release in response to apprehension stress and anesthesia-surgery stress.
The response of prolactin to stress may not be controlled by a single mechanism. This study was designed to measure the prolactin response in the human female to two reproducible stresses: theExpand
Short-term luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonist treatment: prospective trial of a novel ovarian stimulation regimen for in vitro fertilization.
Over a period of 4 months, 262 infertile couples participated in a prospective pseudorandom trial of a novel short-term luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone/human menopausal gonadotropin (LH-RH/hMG)Expand
High-dose, short-term glucocorticoids for the treatment of infertility resulting from premature ovarian failure.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate prospectively the effects of high-dose, short-term treatment with a glucocorticoid in an attempt to normalize ovarian failure and induce pregnancy in women presenting withExpand
Some observations on the possible nutritional significance of vitamin B12-and folate-binding proteins in milk. Absorption of [58Co]cyanocobalamin by suckling piglets.
1. A study was made of absorption of [58Co]cyanocobalamin in suckling piglets. Cyanocobalamin given at birth and at 7 d of age was efficiently absorbed from the intestine and retained within theExpand
Isolation of Mycobacterium avium subsp paratuberculosis from environmental samples collected from farms before and after destocking sheep with paratuberculosis.
OBJECTIVE To determine whether Mycobacterium avium subsp paratuberculosis could be isolated from soil-pasture, faecal, water and sediment samples on farms before and after removal of sheep withExpand
