A study of long-term outcome of 78 subjects who had had Henoch-Schönlein nephritis during childhood (at a mean of 23.4 years after onset) shows that severity of clinical presentation and initial findings on renal biopsy correlate well with outcome but have poor predictive value in individuals. 44% of patients who had nephritic, nephrotic, or(More)
All the survivors of a series of 88 patients with Henoch-Schönlein nephritis were examined after a follow-up of six and a half to 21 years (mean 9-9). Sixty-one patients had no demonstrable abnormality; six had minor urinary abnormalities; five had hypertension without urinary abnormally or renal dysfunction; four had heavy proteinuria; eight were in(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of venous thromboembolism after diagnosis of specific cancers and the effect of thromboembolism on survival are not well defined. METHODS The California Cancer Registry was linked to the California Patient Discharge Data Set to determine the incidence of venous thromboembolism among cancer cases diagnosed between 1993 and 1995.(More)
OBJECT The authors sought to define the incidence of symptomatic venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients harboring malignant gliomas. METHODS The authors conducted a retrospective analysis of data obtained in all cases of malignant glioma diagnosed in California during a 6-year period; the occurrence of a VTE was identified using linked hospital(More)
Surveys of spectral sensitivities, visual pigment spectra, and opsin gene sequences have indicated that all butterfly eyes contain ultraviolet-, blue-, and green-sensitive rhodopsins. Some species also contain a fourth or fifth type, related in amino acid sequence to green-sensitive insect rhodopsins, but red shifted in absorbance. By combining electron(More)
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is categorized by the U.S. Surgeon General as a major public health problem. VTE is relatively common and associated with reduced survival and substantial health-care costs, and recurs frequently. VTE is a complex (multifactorial) disease, involving interactions between acquired or inherited predispositions to thrombosis and VTE(More)
OBJECTIVE To define risk factors for complications that occur during warfarin therapy. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING Five anticoagulation clinics. PATIENTS Nine hundred twenty-eight consecutive patients receiving 1103 courses of warfarin. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Hemorrhagic and thromboembolic complications. RESULTS In 1950 patient-years(More)
There have been very few studies that have describe the epidemiology of first-time venous thromboembolism (VTE) in a large, ethnically diverse population. The California Discharge Data Set was used to identify a cohort of cases with incidentVTE in 1996. Cases associated with traditional provoking risk factors were identified and the remaining cases were(More)
