Of 131 women with hormonally related migraines unresponsive to standard medication, 67 (51.1%) noted profound relief after a 12-month, phased study using danazol for migraine prevention. The first three phases consisted of two-month cycles: dietary control and acetazolamide, the addition of danazol and danazol discontinuation. Eighty-three women (63.36%)(More)
We have experienced a 14% (38 of 264 patients) incidence of pouch outlet obstruction following vertical ring gastroplasty. Initial management consisted of dilatation in 34 of 38 patients (94%). Ten of 34 patients (29%) were spared reoperation by 1 to 3 dilatations. Non-passage of an endoscope through the stoma immediately following dilatation predicted the(More)
Methamphetamine use is increasing in the US. Although there are no Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications for methamphetamine dependence, preclinical and clinical studies suggest that methamphetamine users may benefit from treatments that enhance cholinergic neurotransmission. Consequently, we determined the safety and the efficacy of(More)
In view of reported delayed clearance of 51Cr labelled IgG sensitized autologous erythrocytes in systemic lupus erythematosus, we measured clearance half-time (t1/2) in 16 patients with the drug induced lupus erythematosus syndrome. The mean t1/2 for the patients with drug induced lupus was 52 min, and for 16 normals mean was 48 min, a difference without(More)
Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have abnormal reticuloendothelial system (RES) IgG Fc receptor function which is correlated with disease activity and levels of immune complexes (IC). We studied RES function, IC levels, clinical and laboratory manifestations in 43 patients with RA. The articular index was abnormal in 42 patients (range of 6(More)
Reticuloendothelial System (RES) Fc receptor-mediated immune clearance and levels of immune complexes were measured in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus undergoing plasmapheresis. RES clearance defects improved and disease manifestations and levels of circulating immune complexes decreased after plasmapheresis. Patients with initially abnormal(More)
