An avian influenza (AI) outbreak occurred in meat-type chickens in central Pennsylvania from December 2001 to January 2002. Two broiler breeder flocks were initially infected almost simultaneously in early December. Avian influenza virus (AIV), H7N2 subtype, was isolated from the two premises in our laboratory. The H7N2 isolates were characterized as a low(More)
We previously described a modern, three-dimensional counting method for determining primordial follicle (PF) numbers in primate ovaries using a combination of fractionator and physical dissector techniques. The purposes of our current study were 1) to apply our method to describe intraindividual differences in PF numbers between ovaries and 2) perform a(More)
Previous investigations of primordial follicle (PF) number in primate ovaries have used biased, model-based techniques that require correction factors based on assumptions regarding cell size, orientation, and shape. We sought to apply several techniques from the "new stereology" to obtain unbiased number estimates. This method involves a hierarchy of(More)

Introduction Bioethics is currently witnessing unprecedented debate over the moral and legal norms governing the conduct of clinical research. At the center of this debate is the duty of care in clinical research, and(More)

I n the past couple of years, several investigations by the Offi ce of the Inspector General (OIG) of the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have drawn attention to the use of recruitment incentives in research. In 2003, Toronto's Globe and Mail reported that the pharmaceutical company Biovail became the subject of an investigation because it(More)
BACKGROUND Vaginal atresia is often associated with high imperforate anus. Because the commonly used methods of surgical vaginal creation (eg, McIndoe, intestinal segment interposition) may adversely affect urinary and fecal continence, the less-invasive Vecchietti procedure was selected for a young adult with a successfully corrected high imperforate anus.(More)
Minnehy Mukoma should have been included in the Acknowledgments for research design and implementation. Under the section heading " Expected Death Toll during a Present-Day Mass Vaccination Campaign, " the numbers of expected deaths that were computed for a mass vaccination campaign were displayed as per million; they should be absolute numbers.
