The risk of colorectal cancer is known to be increased in patients with long-standing schistosomal colitis. A retrospective review of clinical data and surgical specimens from 60 patients with schistosomal granulomatous disease of the large intestine but without carcinoma demonstrated that 36 of them had mild to severe grades of colonic epithelial(More)
Changes in the morphology of rat adrenal cortex with age include increased accumulations of lipid droplets and lipofuscin granules. Because glandular concentrations of cholesteryl esters (CE) and apolipoprotein (apo) E are also increased in parallel, the utilization or metabolism of lipid-droplet stored CE for steroidogenesis might be altered in aging(More)
Part of Special Issue " Quantifying predictability " Abstract. Seasonal forecasts run by the Eta Model over South America were evaluated with respect to precipitation predictability at different time scales, seasonal, monthly and weekly for one-year period runs. The model domain was configured over most of South America in 40 km horizontal resolution and 38(More)

The effectiveness of platinum ion implanting in mitigating hydrogen entry into 4340 steel is measured and quantified. Data are presented to compare the extent of hydrogen absorption by the substrate during electrolytic hydrogen charging of platinum ion-implanted and unimplanted 4340 steel substrates. Several implanting conditions were used in processing the(More)
The Object Management Architecture (OMA) has been recognized as a de facto standard in the development of object services in distributed computing environment. In a distributed system, the provision for failure-recovery is always a vital design issue. However, the fault-tolerant service has not been extensively considered in the current OMA framework,(More)

Extrahepatic tissues including the adrenal cortex are capable of synthesizing apolipoprotein E (apoE). Locally synthesized apoE is believed to affect cellular uptake, transport and redistribution of cholesterol within that organ. We and another laboratory have previously reported that the adrenal cortex of aged rats has an elevated cholesteryl ester(More)
