This Letter reports results from the MINOS experiment based on its initial exposure to neutrinos from the Fermilab NuMI beam. The rates and energy spectra of charged current nu(mu) interactions are compared in two detectors located along the beam axis at distances of 1 and 735 km. With 1.27 x 10(20) 120 GeV protons incident on the NuMI target, 215 events(More)
A large previously reported family with hyperparathyroidism has been reinvestigated recently because of the occurrence of multiple ossifying jaw fibromas in two affected members of the third generation similar to the jaw tumors of four of five affected members of the first generation. These maxillary and mandibular tumors can be differentiated from the(More)
The purpose of this study was to prospectively define the recovery of touch discrimination following four commonly performed surgical procedures in 22 consecutive patients with no previous maxillofacial surgery. The surgical groups studied were Le Fort I osteotomy (LEFORT; n = 13), sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO; n = 6), intraoral vertical ramus(More)
The K2K experiment observes indications of neutrino oscillation: a reduction of nu(mu) flux together with a distortion of the energy spectrum. Fifty-six beam neutrino events are observed in Super-Kamiokande (SK), 250 km from the neutrino production point, with an expectation of 80.1(+6.2)(-5.4). Twenty-nine one ring mu-like events are used to reconstruct(More)
The T2K experiment has observed electron neutrino appearance in a muon neutrino beam produced 295 km from the Super-Kamiokande detector with a peak energy of 0.6 GeV. A total of 28 electron neutrino events were detected with an energy distribution consistent with an appearance signal, corresponding to a significance of 7.3σ when compared to 4.92±0.55(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this retrospective study was to evaluate the horizontal and vertical facial soft tissue changes occurring after maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) surgery to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). PATIENTS AND METHODS The study group comprised 31 consecutive adult patients with OSA who underwent MMA through Le Fort I osteotomy and(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to define the patterns of recovery of mandibular mobility following three commonly performed orthognathic surgical procedures. Twenty-two consecutive patients undergoing either isolated Le Fort I osteotomy (LE FORT; n = 7), sagittal split ramus osteotomies (SSRO; n = 7), or intraoral vertical ramus osteotomies (IVRO; n(More)
BACKGROUND Stage IV inoperable head and neck cancer has a 2-year mortality rate of greater than 70% when treated with conventional radiotherapy. A Phase II study was undertaken to evaluate the effects of concomitant chemotherapy and accelerated, interrupted, twice-a-day radiotherapy on tumor response, locoregional control, survival, and morbidity. METHODS(More)
The T2K experiment observes indications of ν(μ) → ν(e) appearance in data accumulated with 1.43×10(20) protons on target. Six events pass all selection criteria at the far detector. In a three-flavor neutrino oscillation scenario with |Δm(23)(2)| = 2.4×10(-3)  eV(2), sin(2)2θ(23) = 1 and sin(2)2θ(13) = 0, the expected number of such events is 1.5±0.3(syst).(More)
The identification, synthesis and SAR of a novel series of glucokinase activators is described. The interplay between lipophilicity, potency and physical properties is discussed, and compound 22 highlighted as having a suitable balance. In vivo pharmacokinetic and acute efficacy studies on this compound are also presented.
