BACKGROUND There are few therapeutic treatments established for cellulite. OBJECTIVE We studied the response of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment with or without a compounded prescription retinyl-based cream on a small group of patients who had visible cellulite present on the buttocks and thigh regions. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty patients were(More)
Noninvasive techniques employing external counting of radiolabeled protein have the potential for measuring pulmonary vascular protein permeability, but their specificity and sensitivity remain unclear. We tested the specificity and sensitivity of a double-radioisotope method by injecting radiolabeled albumin (131I) and erythrocytes (99mTc) into(More)
In vivo and in vitro studies were carried out to characterize the exchangeable bone magnesium pool and determine what effect age and magnesium depletion has on bone magnesium. A highly significant correlation was found between the size of the in vitro elutable and in vivo exchangeable bone magnesium (r=0.97). To show that the exchangeable bone magnesium was(More)
Gram-negative rods are unusual pharyngeal isolates in normal man, which suggests the presence of effective oral defense mechanisms against these organisms. To understand this protection better, we studied the elimination of gram-negative rods from the mouth after gargle challenge. Suspensions of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Proteus mirabilis(More)
We have investigated the uptake of Tc-99m methylene diphosphonate (Tc-MDP) in the metaphysis and shaft of the rat femur as affected by hypophysectomy and hormonal replacement with growth hormone and thyroxine. Two hours following injection of Tc-MDP, the metaphysis and a specimen of shaft were obtained and the metaphysis-to-shaft radioactivity ratio was(More)
Hemodynamic, respiratory, and regional blood flow measurements were carried out in two groups of monkeys at three roughly equivalent stages of endotoxin and hemorrhagic shock. Comparisons revealed characteristic differences at the two early stages, particularly in systemic vascular resistance and the pattern of distribution of cardiac output. However, at(More)
