OBJECTIVE To report on our 7-year experience with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) in native Indian children in Manitoba and to raise the awareness of physicians about the difficulties in the classification and management of hyperglycemia in Indian children. DESIGN Case series. PATIENTS All Indian children under 15 years of age referred(More)
Guanosine 5'-triphosphate (GTP) is a chemorepellent in Tetrahymena thermophila that has been shown to stimulate cell division as well as ciliary reversal. Previous studies have proposed that GTP avoidance is linked to a receptor-mediated, calcium-based depolarization. However, the intracellular mechanisms involved in GTP avoidance have not been previously(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the incidence and presentations of internal hernias (IH) after laparoscopic antecolic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) at our institution. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of 594 patients who underwent laparoscopic antecolic RYGB at our institution between December 2004 and December 2010. RESULTS Five hundred(More)
The effects on body temperature of intracerebroventricular and intraperitoneal sodium salicylate were evaluated in anesthetized and nonanesthetized, nonrestrained rats. Also, the effects of various neurotransmitter receptor blocking drugs were evaluated on salicylate-induced hypothermia of nonanesthetized animals. Sodium salicylate, 150-350 mg/kg induced a(More)
The lethality of seven 0,0-dimethyl 0-(p-nitrophenyl) phosphorothioates and their corresponding oxons has been determined in adult, male mice. The anticholinesterase potency of the oxons for bovine, erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase has also been determined. The LD50 values in mg/kg were: methylparathion, 33.1; fenitrothion, 988; chlorothion, 794; decapthon,(More)
As cells progress through the multistep process of neoplastic transformation, they eventually acquire the property of invasive behavior. Although both plasminogen activators (PA) and their inhibitors (PAI) contribute to this process, their regulation in normal and transformed cells remains poorly defined. Because somatic cell hybrids provide useful tools(More)
