What has never been examined is whether under these conditions this many days are necessary for the content of muscle glycogen to attain these high levels. To(More)
A new radiotracer, 99mTc-imidodiphosphate, has been investigated in a series of 101 consecutive admissions to a Coronary Care Unit in a large teaching hospital to assess its potential as an acute myocardial infarct imaging agent. This agent shows high sensitivity for transmural infarction (0.96), subendocardial infarction (0.88) and high overall specificity(More)

BACKGROUND Epidemiology and treatment strategies continue to evolve in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). We sought to define the characteristics and survival of patients with idiopathic, heritable and drug-induced PAH in the current management era. METHODS Consecutive cases of idiopathic, heritable and drug-induced PAH were prospectively enrolled(More)

Of30 men with hyperbetalipoproteinemia, SURV was shortened (2.5 ± 0.10 days) in 26 (87%). Of 51 men without hyperlipoproteinemia, SURV was normal (3.3 ± 0.10(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) has witnessed dramatic treatment advances over the past decade. However, with the exception of epoprostenol, data from short-term randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have not shown a benefit of these drugs on survival. There remains a need to differentiate between available therapies and current endpoint(More)
