The present empirical investigation had a 3-fold purpose: (a) to cross-validate L. R. Offermann, J. K. Kennedy, and P. W. Wirtz's (1994) scale of Implicit Leadership Theories (ILTs) in several organizational settings and to further provide a shorter scale of ILTs in organizations; (b) to assess the generalizability of ILTs across different employee groups,(More)
CD47, a "don't eat me" signal for phagocytic cells, is expressed on the surface of all human solid tumor cells. Analysis of patient tumor and matched adjacent normal (nontumor) tissue revealed that CD47 is overexpressed on cancer cells. CD47 mRNA expression levels correlated with a decreased probability of survival for multiple types of cancer. CD47 is a(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the outcome of a new technique of ex vivo expanded stem cell allograft for limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD), and to characterize the ocular surface genotype after surgery. DESIGN Retrospective noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Ten eyes of 10 patients with profound LSCD arising from ectodermal dysplasia (3 eyes),(More)
BACKGROUND Previously reported complications in medial opening wedge (MOW) high tibial osteotomy (HTO) vary considerably in both rate and severity. PURPOSE (1) To determine the rates of adverse events in MOW HTO classified into different grades of severity based on the treatments required and (2) to compare patient-reported outcomes between the different(More)
First described in 1983, Barth syndrome (BTHS) is widely regarded as a rare X-linked genetic disease characterised by cardiomyopathy (CM), skeletal myopathy, growth delay, neutropenia and increased urinary excretion of 3-methylglutaconic acid (3-MGCA). Fewer than 200 living males are known worldwide, but evidence is accumulating that the disorder is(More)
Pulmonary venous stenosis has been a challenge to paediatric cardiologists and surgeons. In spite of significant improvements in the management and outcome of various congenital cardiac problems, the prognosis of this condition continues to be dismal. Acquired stenosis of the pulmonary veins has been described in the adult population, especially after(More)
BACKGROUND Non-invasive measurement of left ventricular output has been shown to be a repeatable technique. Little is known about the repeatability using echocardiography in determining pulmonary arterial diameters or right ventricular output. AIMS To find the most repeatable point at which to measure pulmonary arterial diameter, and to compare the(More)
The tracheobronchial secretions from cystic fibrosis patients contained higher levels of protein, DNA and sialic acid than the tracheobronchial secretions from healthy donors. In contrast, the neutral hexose content in CF secretions was strikingly lower than in secretions from normal subjects. The levels of neutral hexose and sialic acid in the CF(More)
Fibrin glue is an excellent template for cellular migration and has been shown to be an effective delivery system for cultured autologous keratinocytes. We have investigated whether fibrin glue has any benefit on the percentage of epithelial cover when cultured autologous keratinocytes are sprayed onto a freshly debrided wound bed. Three pigs were used for(More)
Two studies were conducted to examine the impact of subjective uncertainty on conformity to group norms in the attitude-behaviour context. In both studies, subjective uncertainty was manipulated using a deliberative mindset manipulation (McGregor, Zanna, Holmes, & Spencer, 2001). In Study 1 (N=106), participants were exposed to either an attitude-congruent(More)
