OBJECTIVE Statistical health risk information has proved notoriously confusing and difficult to understand. While past research indicates that presenting risk information in a frequency format is superior to relative risk and probability formats, the optimal characteristics of frequency formats are still unclear. The aim of this study is to determine the(More)
BACKGROUND Most anxiety/depression is not effectively treated. Aims Open evaluation of a free clinic giving immediate computer-aided cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) self-help plus brief advice from a therapist. METHOD Test of outcome of self-referrals who used one of four computer-aided CBT systems for depression, phobia/panic, general anxiety or(More)
The Work and Social Adjustment Scale (WSAS) is a simple widely used 5-item measure of disability whose psychometric properties need more analysis in phobic disorders. The reliability, factor structure, validity, and sensitivity to change of the WSAS were studied in 205 phobic patients (73 agoraphobia, 62 social phobia, and 70 specific phobia) who(More)
Little is known about how psychiatric patients' source of referral relates to treatment outcome. This study examines the effect of referral source on clinical outcome with computer-aided cognitive-behavior therapy (CCBT) for anxiety and depressive disorders. Three hundred fifty-five referrals to a clinic that offered CCBT with brief backup from a clinician(More)
The major limiting factor in the successful application of adjuvant therapy for metastatic disease is the lack of adjuvant specificity that leads to severe side effects. Reasoning that T cells of the immune system are highly specific, we generated tumor-specific T cells by genetic modification of mouse primary T cells with a chimeric receptor reactive with(More)
In addition to the hallmark accumulation of amyloid and hyper-phosphorylation of tau, brain changes in Alzheimer's disease are multifactorial including inflammation, oxidative stress, and metal dysregulation. Metal chelators have been explored as a less well known approach to treatment. One chelator currently being developed is deferoxamine (DFO),(More)
Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) whiteßy populations produce economically important damage to crops by their direct feeding and also by transmitting plant viruses. Although there are several methods to reduce B. tabaci damage, most growers rely on the use of insecticides to decrease populations of this pest. Insecticides that reduce feeding of whiteßy adults may(More)
In order to test the effectiveness of adoptive immunotherapy against renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in a mouse model relevant to human disease, we first generated two murine renal cell carcinoma cell lines expressing the human tumor-associated antigen erbB2 by genetic modification of the Renca and SIRCC cell lines. When injected into the kidneys of mice, these(More)
