Nondestructive techniques to obtain DNA from organisms can further genetic analyses such as estimating genetic diversity, dispersal and lifetime fitness, without permanently removing individuals from the population or removing body parts. Possible DNA sources for insects include frass, exuviae, and wing and leg clippings. However, these are not feasible(More)
A controlled randomised double-blind design was used to study the effect of lignocaine on the pain produced by intravenous injection of propofol. Patients received a 2-ml pretreatment solution with temporary venous occlusion, followed by an induction solution. One hundred and three patients were assigned to one of five groups: saline pretreatment, followed(More)
The MiniBooNE Collaboration reports a search for νμ and ν̄μ disappearance in the ∆m 2 region of a few eV . These measurements are important for constraining models with extra types of neutrinos, extra dimensions and CPT violation. Fits to the shape of the νμ and ν̄μ energy spectra reveal no evidence for disappearance at 90% confidence level (CL) in either(More)

Nephropathic cystinosis is associated with end-stage renal failure, retinal damage, and hypothyroidism. Patients may now survive past the first decade of life with the use of dialysis and renal transplantation. Examination of a 24-year-old woman with this disorder revealed ovarian failure, mildly abnormal results on a glucose tolerance test, intermittent(More)
We have studied the influence of a reduced dose of neostigmine on recovery from vecuronium-induced neuromuscular block in 26 adult patients, using electromyographic responses to train-of-four (TOF) stimulation. Neostigmine 10, 20 or 40 micrograms kg-1 was administered when the first response had recovered spontaneously to 5-10% or 40-50% of control.(More)
The Booster Neutrino Experiment (MiniBooNE) searches for νμ → νe oscillations using the O(1 GeV) neutrino beam produced by the Booster synchrotron at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL). The Booster delivers protons with 8 GeV kinetic energy (8.89 GeV/c momentum) to a beryllium target, producing neutrinos from the decay of secondary particles(More)
