We have suggested that altered maternal metabolism may affect the subsequent anthropometric and neuropsychological development of children who were in utero during disturbances in maternal fuel economy. This study reports the physical growth through 8 yr of age and the neuropsychological development through 4 yr of age in offspring of diabetic mothers(More)
We have examined the effects of exposing rats to hypoxia (10% fractional inspired O2 concentration) for 2 and 7 days on endothelium-dependent and -independent vasodilation and also on the ability of guanosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) to activate cGMP-dependent protein kinase (G-kinase) in rat conduit pulmonary arteries (PA). The ability of(More)
Using an indirect immunofluorescence test on suspensions of viable, insulin-producing islet cells from rats, we found that 32 per cent (28/88) of insulin-treated patients with juvenile diabetes have islet-cell-surface antibodies in their circulation. These antibodies also occurred in four of nine children with glucose intolerance, in one of 24 healthy(More)
We have studied the acute effect of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) on pulmonary vascular tone in normoxia and acute hypoxia in the absence and presence of a specific inhibitor of neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEI, UK 73, 967, candoxatrilat; Pfizer) in the isolated and blood-perfused rat lung preparation. Baseline(More)
We investigated whether hospital-based specialist asthma nurses improved recognition and self-treatment of asthma episodes by patients followed up after attending accident and emergency departments (A&E) for asthma exacerbations. We carried out a randomized prospective controlled trial of adult asthma self-management, following a hospital outpatient nurse(More)
10 patients (mean age 23.1, range 17.1-40.5 years), 8 with cystic fibrosis (CF), and 2 with advanced bronchiectasis without CF, were taught, while being treated in hospital for exacerbations of pseudomonas infection, how to continue to give themselves intravenous antibiotics at home. They were discharged after satisfactory antibiotic levels had been(More)
A dual processing model of sexual harassment judgments predicted that the behavior of a complainant in a prior case would influence evaluations in an unrelated subsequent case. In the first of two experimental scenarios depicting social-sexual conduct at work, the female complainant's conduct was manipulated to be aggressive, submissive, ambiguous, or(More)
