A key methodological challenge involved in studying the latter group involves defining the population. Specifically, researchers must decide whether to include (1) concurrent heroin users(More)
Mice transgenic for gamma 2b Ig heavy chain were examined for alterations in B-cell differentiation and endogenous Ig gene rearrangement and expression. Fresh bone marrow from these mice was markedly reduced in BP-1+ cells and there were small reductions in B220+ and sIg+ cells. A-MuLV (Abelson murine leukemia virus) transformants from these bone marrow(More)
OBJECTIVE Benchmarks, representing the level of performance achieved by the best-performing providers, can be used to set achievable goals for improving care, but they have not heretofore been available for mental health care.
