A single identified neuron, the medial type B photoreceptor, was isolated by axotomy from the nervous systems of nudibranch molluscs (Hermissenda) which had been exposed to three different training experiences. Paired animals had been trained with repeated paired presentations of light and rotation and random animals with randomized light and rotation;(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate follicular phase parameters during ovarian stimulation with FSH alone or with the aromatase inhibitor letrozole. METHODS Two groups of women undergoing intrauterine insemination (IUI): group I (389 patients; mean age 35 +/- 4.3 yr) underwent 630 IUI cycles stimulated with letrozole and FSH; and group(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the incidence of congenital malformations among offspring of mothers who conceived with clomiphene citrate (CC) or with letrozole treatment for infertility. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING 5 fertility centers in Canada. PATIENTS 911 newborns from women who conceived following CC or letrozole treatment. INTERVENTIONS(More)
OBJECTIVE To review 10 years' experience in a tertiary care paediatric hospital of erythema multiforme (EM), Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). In addition, to apply a recently described classification system for EM, SJS and TEN in children. DESIGN Retrospective study of all children with a discharge diagnosis of EM, SJS(More)
There has been an increasing use of cocaine in North America among women of reproductive age. The potential effects of cocaine on the fetus have raised serious concerns about the health of large numbers of children exposed in utero to the drug. Using neonatal hair and urine tests for benzoylegconine (BE), we quantified the incidence of fetal exposure to(More)
We describe hair tests for assessment of fetal exposure to cocaine and cigarette smoking. Cocaine and its major metabolites are incorporated into hair during the growth of the shaft and stay there for the whole life of the hair. Cocaine crosses the placenta and its metabolite benzoylecgonine, has been found in neonatal urine, meconium and hair. In order to(More)
Cocaine has been shown to accumulate in hair of admitted users. Before using this test to verify cocaine use, however, it is crucial to differentiate between systemic exposure and external contamination from being in contact with crack smoke. In the present studies, the authors document that pyrolysis of crack results in hair accumulation of cocaine, but(More)
Cocaine and its major metabolites are incorporated into hair during the growth of the shaft and stay there for the whole life of the hair. Cocaine crosses the placenta and its metabolites for example Benzoylecgonine (BZ), have been found in neonatal urine, meconium and hair. In order to utilize hair measurements of cocaine as a biological marker of systemic(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the clinical results and the cost-effectiveness of using the aromatase inhibitor, letrozole, in conjunction with FSH and FSH alone for controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) in patients undergoing intrauterine insemination (IUI) for a variety of indications. METHODS Four hundred and thirty-two consecutive patients who underwent 872 IUI(More)
