Articulatory and language impairment heralded rapidly progressive motor neuron disease in 7 patients aged 54 to 77 years. One patient had a family history of a similar disorder. Severe nonfluent aphasia developed in all 7 patients and 4 were anarthric within a year. Other cognitive domains were impaired, yet 2 patients lived alone until 1 month before their(More)
[1] Results of a single-blind round-robin comparison of satellite primary productivity algorithms are presented. The goal of the round-robin exercise was to determine the accuracy of the algorithms in predicting depth-integrated primary production from information amenable to remote sensing. Twelve algorithms, developed by 10 teams, were evaluated by(More)
The metabolism of dehydroepiandrosterone and testosterone by human mammary tumor was investigated. Estrogen synthesis from dehydroepiandrosterone was observed in 9 of 10 estrogen-receptor-negative tumors and only in 2 of 8 receptor-positive tumors (p less than 0.025). Conversion of testosterone to estrogens was observed in 7 of 8 receptor-negative and 2 of(More)
We identified a cohort of 300 individuals who had paralytic polio between 1935 and 1955. All lived in Olmsted County, Minnesota. From the 247 survivors, we selected 50 subjects for detailed historical, functional, psychological, clinical, and electrophysiologic evaluation. Sixty-four percent of these 50 survivors complained of new symptoms of muscle pain,(More)
We completed a prospective, population-based cohort study of polio survivors in Olmsted County, Minnesota, between 1986 and 1993. We identified 50 individuals who had had paralytic polio between 1935 and 1960, as representative of all 300 cases of paralytic polio in the county. We completed detailed quantitative clinical and electrophysiologic studies at(More)
The metabolism of 7-(3)H-pregnenolone was studied in vitro using 16 human breast carcinomas. All mammary tumors transformed pregnenolone to progesterone. All estrogen receptor poor tumors and 4 out of 8 estrogen receptor rich tumors converted pregnenolone to 17-hydroxypregnenolone. Five estrogen receptor poor tumors showed the presence of 17,20-lyase as(More)
The metabolism of estradiol was studied in 31 human breast carcinoma in vitro. All 16 estrogen-receptor-poor tumors transformed estradiol to estrone with percent conversions ranging from 11.4 to 95 except for one poorly differentiated tumor where 0.5% conversion to estrone was observed. On the contrary, only 3 out of 15 estrogen-receptor-rich tumors showed(More)
