The purpose of the study was to compare the efficacy of 10% povidone-iodine with that of 0.5% chlorhexidine gluconate in 70% isopropyl alcohol for the prevention of peripheral intravenous catheter colonization in neonates. This was a multicenter, nonrandomized prospective study in a tertiary neonatal intensive care setting in which povidone-iodine and(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate pain scores and plasma beta-endorphin levels following a single spinal adjustive manipulation in subjects with acute low back pain. Eighteen subjects were randomly assigned to either a control group, which received no treatment; a sham group, which received only light physical contact (touch); or an experimental(More)
PURPOSE To identify tumor-suppressor loci that may contribute to the pathogenesis of uveal melanoma. METHODS Multiplex fluorescence microsatellite assays were performed on 27 uveal melanomas using markers at 3p25-p26, 3p14.2, 9p21-p23, 13q14, 13q12.3-q13, and 17p13, close to or within the von Hippel Lindau (VHL), fragile histidine triad (FHIT),(More)
DNA mismatch repair genes have been implicated in the pathogenesis and predisposition of certain malignancies through a mutator phenotype. In this study, we investigated, in 150 non-small cell lung carcinomas, the expression levels of hMLH1 and hMSH2 proteins in relation to loss of heterozygosity on chromosomes 3p and 2p, the mutational status of these(More)
We have used two hexaplex fluorescent microsatellite assays and analysis on an automatic sequencer to determine allelic imbalance in lung tumors. The markers used are located close to tumor-suppressor genes, DNA repair genes and regions frequently lost in lung cancer. We present a reference interval and quantify the reproducibility of the assays as assessed(More)
OBJECTIVE The potential effects of ethnicity, gender, and adiposity on the serum lipid profile in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) were determined. SUBJECTS Subjects with SCI were recruited during their annual physical examination from Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center, Downey, California. Sedentary able-bodied controls were Bridge and Tunnel Officers(More)
A series of 510 patients with proven aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) is reported. The incidence of recurrent haemorrhage during the period awaiting surgery was 13.7%. There was no significant difference in incidence between good and poor grade patients. Following rebleeding there was an immediate mortality of 34% in good grade patients and 52% in(More)
Local anesthetics are the most commonly used drugs in dentistry. The number of adverse reactions reported, particularly toxic reactions, are extraordinarily negligible. This article reports a case of lidocaine toxicity with its typical manifestation in a 37-yr-old healthy male. The toxic reaction followed transoral/transpharyngeal topical spraying of(More)
OBJECTIVE The potential effect of ethnicity on the serum lipid profile and lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] was studied in a population with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI). STUDY DESIGN The distribution and correlates of high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and Lp(a) were studied in a population of 600 subjects with chronic SCI. RESULTS Mean +/- SEM serum(More)
