In 1.1 , the given real sequences {pn}, {qn} satisfy pn T pn > 0, qn T qn for any n ∈ Z, f : Z×R → R is continuous in the second variable, and f n T, z f n, z for a given positive integer T and for all n, z ∈ Z×R. −1 δ −1, δ > 0, and δ is the ratio of odd positive integers. By a solution of 1.1 , we mean a real sequence x {xn}, n ∈ Z, satisfying 1.1 . In 1,(More)
OBJECTIVE Children with severe hemophilia are at risk for reduced bone mineral density (BMD) because of reduced weight-bearing exercise and hepatitis C infection. Reduced bone density in childhood is a risk factor for osteoporosis in later life. STUDY DESIGN We performed a cross-sectional survey of bone density among 19 children with severe hemophilia, at(More)
OBJECTIVE Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) frequently manifest behavioral difficulties in the morning prior to school. Our aim was to examine the effects of the methylphenidate transdermal system (MTS) on before-school ADHD symptoms and functioning in children with ADHD. METHOD In this randomized crossover study, conducted(More)
OBJECTIVE Several studies have documented a profile of elevated scores on the Attention Problems, Aggressive Behavior and Anxious/Depressed scales of the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) in youth with bipolar disorder. The sum of these scales, referred to as the CBCL Juvenile Bipolar Disorder (JBD) phenotype, has modest diagnostic utility, and high scores(More)
Vitamin K is essential for development of normal bone density and achieving adequate peak bone mass in childhood and is thought to be important in preventing the development of osteoporosis in later life. Warfarin, a vitamin K antagonist, is being used with greater frequency in children. The long-term effect of warfarin on bone density of children is not(More)
BACKGROUND The utility of electronic medical record databases for clinical research relies on the validity and completeness of the recorded medical diagnoses. This study assessed whether the recorded incidence of cancer among patients in The Health Improvement Network (THIN) database is comparable to that expected in the UK based on national cancer registry(More)
In this paper we provide sufficient conditions for the existence as well as the uniqueness of solutions of two classes of partial hyperbolic differential equations of fractional order with infinite delay. Our results will be obtained using suitable fixed point theorems. AMS Subject Classifications: 26A33.
BACKGROUND To investigate whether ADHD is a risk factor for switches from unipolar to bipolar disorder over time. METHODS Data from two large controlled longitudinal family studies of boys and girls with and without ADHD and their siblings were used. Subjects (n=168) were followed prospectively and blindly over an average follow-up period of 7 years.(More)
BACKGROUND Wound healing following a partial biopsy of basal cell (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) may induce tumor regression. METHODS Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) biopsy and re-excision specimens from 1994 to 2001 were reviewed for histologic evidence of scar vs. presence of residual tumor in excision specimens. Regressed and non-regressed(More)
