Logistic regression analyses were used to test study hypotheses in a population-based sample of women (N = 3,936). As expected, child sexual, physical, and emotional abuse were independently associated with(More)

The Briggs-Nebes (1975) modified version of Annett's (1967) handedness inventory was administered to 59 female and 51 male undergraduates and 101 nursing students. J-shaped distributions of scores in the dextral direction and significant sex differences such that males were more sinistral than females were found. The inventory was found to be(More)
[reaction: see text] Synthesis of N(2) 2'-deoxyguanosine adducts formed by the ubiquitous carcinogen, 1-nitropyrene, is reported. Various conditions of Buchwald-Hartwig palladium-catalyzed amination are examined. The most convenient synthetic approach involved a straightforward coupling between protected 2'-deoxyguanosine and bromonitropyrenes, which, upon(More)
