In this paper, we focus on the problem of recovering processor failures in shared memory multiprocessors. We propose an architecture designed for transparently tolerating processor failures. The Recoverable Shared Memory (RSM) is the main component of this architecture which provides a hardware supported backward error recovery mechanism. This technique(More)
Methods. This prospective US multicenter trial of leuprolide acetate 1-month depot (7.5-15 mg) for central precocious puberty utilized an open-label treatment period, long-term follow-up, and adult callback. Forty-nine females <9 years old with Tanner breast stage ≥2 before 8 years and 6 males <10 years old with Tanner genital stage ≥2 before 9 years with(More)
INTRODUCTION Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogs (GnRHa) are the treatment of choice for CPP. We investigated growth in GnRHa-naïve subjects, treated with leuprolide acetate 1-month depot for CPP. METHODS This prospective, open-label study had a long-term, observational, follow-up period. Forty-nine females and 6 males were enrolled. Leuprolide acetate(More)
The Ross Sea is home to some of the largest phytoplankton blooms in the Southern Ocean. Primary production in this system has previously been shown to be iron limited in the summer and periodically iron and vitamin B(12) colimited. In this study, we examined trace metal limitation of biological activity in the Ross Sea in the austral spring and considered(More)
BACKGROUND Lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) are known reproductive toxicants thought to disrupt hormone production throughout sensitive developmental windows, although this has not been previously examined in nationally representative peripubertal children. OBJECTIVES We examined the association between blood Pb and urinary Cd concentrations and the(More)
