Bone marrow contains many cellular elements that may contribute to fracture repair. We used a pluripotential stromal cell in a mouse model to demonstrate the presence of transplanted cells in fracture hematoma and subsequently in maturing fracture callus. Cells were transduced with traceable genes (lac Z and neomycin resistance) and traced in vivo after(More)
Precursor cells, isolated from bone marrow, can develop into various cell types and may contribute to skeletal growth, remodeling, and repair. The D1 cell line was cloned from a multipotent mouse bone marrow stromal precursor and has osteogenic, chondrogenic, and adipogenic properties. The osteogenic phenotype of these precursor cells is relevant to the(More)
The Brown recluse spider has emerged into a potent venomous creature. Loxoscelism and necrotic arachnidism is not an infrequent medical problem. Spiders other than L. reclusa are capable of inflicting painful and persisting necrotic wounds, however, management of the local cutaneous lesions are similar. Systemic complications of loxoscelism appear to be(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW The authors discuss the role of moisturizers in the daily skin care regimen of healthy skin and in atopic dermatitis, as well as the efficacy of newer products. RECENT FINDINGS Recent findings have shown that the affected skin of atopic individuals is deficient in ceramides, an integral lipid component of the stratum corneum. Several(More)
The traditional functions of management--planning, organizing, leading, and controlling--continue to be the key activities used to enable the organization to accomplish its goals and objectives. Though significant changes have occurred in all organizational structures, processes, and managerial styles, these traditional functions remain a constant. What has(More)
New principles are discussed for the classification of the diffuse collagen diseases, particularly the mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD), with clinical and historical explanation. Emphasis in classification has shifted from a concern with tissue pathology to serologic anomalies, which may involve eleven different antigens, many from human cell nuclei.(More)
There is scanty knowledge of the morphology of peritoneal dialysis catheter tunnels in humans, even though such knowledge may impact on peritoneal catheter design, implantation and postimplantation care. Past descriptions of catheter tunnels are based mainly on data from animal experiments. Based on these data, it has been assumed that epidermal spreading(More)
Sham and real trials of peritoneal dialysis were carried out in a double-blind crossover study design to test the efficacy of peritoneal dialysis as a treatment for psoriasis. The criteria for patients included having severe plaque-type psoriasis unresponsive to all conventional therapy including methotrexate. Patients were randomly assigned to 4 weeks of(More)
