Mental illness and substance abuse are common among HIV-infected individuals and are associated with negative outcomes, including poor medication adherence. Therefore, quick and effective methods for detecting these co-occurring disorders are necessary for health care practitioners. This article reports on the creation and preliminary testing of a brief(More)
The prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) among women visiting antenatal (ANC) and gynaecological clinics in Gondar, north-west Ethiopia, was investigated. Between April and August 1995, 728 women consented to enter the study. Prevalence rates were 5.9% (41/693) for chlamydial antigen in cervix, 18.8% (113/600) for syphilis (Treponema pallidum(More)
TLC ELL-12 is a liposomal formulation of the novel antineoplastic compound 1-O-octadecyl-2-O-methyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (L-ET-18-OCH(3)). The purpose of these studies was to evaluate the activity and tissue distribution of L-ET-18-OCH(3) when administered i.v. as TLC ELL-12 to rats bearing solid tumors. Growth-inhibitory activity of L-ET-18-OCH(3)(More)
The HER2 gene, amplified in 10 to 35% of invasive human breast carcinomas, has prognostic and therapeutic implications. Fluorescent in situ hybridization is one method currently used for assessing HER2 status, but fluorescent in situ hybridization involves the time-consuming step of manual signal enumeration. To address this issue, Vysis has developed an(More)
The purpose of this research was to compare the outcomes of hybrid courses, which require a certain degree of classroom participation, with distance only courses, which involve no classroom contact. Tinto's theory of retention indicates that academic integration is an important factor in student persistence. Hybrid courses have been touted as the best of(More)
TLC ELL-12 is a liposomal formulation of the antineoplastic L-O-octadecyl-2-O-methyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine [L-ET-18-OCH3 (EL)]. The purpose of these studies was to characterize the toxicity and disposition of [N-methyl-14C] L-ET-18-OCH3 administered as TLC ELL-12. Rats received TLC ELL-12 by i.v. infusion into a tail vein as a single 12.5 or 62.5(More)
Traditional cytogenetic studies of ovarian stromal tumors are few, although trisomy 12 has been frequently documented with fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). In the current study, karyotypic analysis of four ovarian stromal tumors and a review of the literature suggest that numerical abnormalities of chromosomes 4 and 9 might also be important,(More)
