BACKGROUND/AIMS The first main objective of the work presented in this paper was to investigate ways of optimizing the current arm patch test protocol by (1) increasing the sensitivity of the test in order to evaluate more effectively the products that are inherently non-irritating, and/or (2) reducing the costs of these types of studies by shortening the(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The studies presented here are intended to continue the validation of the behind-the-knee test system developed to evaluate the mechanical irritation potential of products such as catemenial pads, baby and adult diapers (which are inherently non-irritating products/chemicals). These products are intended to be worn for prolonged periods(More)
We compared the skin compatibility of two menstrual pad technologies in a single-center, parallel, randomized, examiner-blinded study involving adult women. This report presents the results of a subset of 10 participants who had a genital infection within 12 months prior to the start of the study. In a blinded fashion, participants were randomized to(More)
The shoulder is now accessible to MRI owing to recent technical advances. The major advantages of this modality include its noninvasive nature, lack of ionizing radiation, excellent contrast and anatomic resolution, multiplanar imaging capability, and ability as a single imaging modality to evaluate simultaneously for a wide variety of pathologic processes.(More)
BACKGROUND Menstrual tampons are available in a range of absorbencies to allow women to use the product most appropriate to their needs. This study assessed the safety of an ultra absorbency (15 g to 18 g) tampon compared with a currently marketed super-plus absorbency (12 g to 15 g) tampon as a control. METHODS Healthy women age 18-45 years (n = 95) were(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess differences in prevalence and cell densities of enterococci, Gram negative enterics (GNEs), yeast and Staphylococcus aureus among four genital sites and to examine whether the presence of organisms at one site affected the presence of organisms at other sites. METHODS Swab samples from the perineum, below and above the hymen, and the(More)
MR imaging has become the primary imaging modality of the knee. Its advantages include its noninvasive nature, multiplanar imaging capability, excellent soft-tissue contrast, and high resolution. The need for multiple imaging modalities is obviated, as the menisci, cruciate ligaments, synovium, articular cartilage, marrow, and periarticular soft tissues can(More)
