Four-hundred seventy-five permanent residents of Wisconsin were tested for antibodies to the agent of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE) by indirect immunofluorescent antibody (IFA) testing with Ehrlichia equi as antigen marker. Each resident completed a standard survey questionnaire about outdoor activities, animal and tick exposure, and any febrile(More)
OBJECTIVE To report tissue gentamicin concentrations after intraosseous (IO) perfusion in standing horses. STUDY DESIGN In vivo study. ANIMALS OR SAMPLE POPULATION Twelve horses. METHODS Sedated horses had a cannulated cortical bone screw inserted into the dorsolateral aspect of the treated metacarpus and a tourniquet applied proximally. Gentamicin(More)
Phage T4, the archetype of lytic bacterial viruses, needs only 62 genes to propagate under standard laboratory conditions. Interestingly, the T4 genome contains more than 100 putative genes of unknown function, with few detectable homologues in cellular genomes. To characterize this uncharted territory of genetic information, we have identified several T4(More)
As part of a prospective, randomized study, the psychological effects of two different treatment regimens on the diagnosis of children and adolescents aged 3-15 years with insulin-dependent diabetes insipidus were evaluated. Conventional treatment was compared to a new regimen with a crisis programme which included a milieu therapeutic setting. A total of(More)

OBJECTIVE To assess the antimicrobial elution characteristics, toxicity, and antimicrobial activity of amikacin-impregnated ferric-hyaluronate implants (AI-FeHAI) for amikacin delivery to the tarsocrural joint of horses. STUDY DESIGN Experimental study. SAMPLE POPULATION AI-FeHAI implants, equine cartilage, and synovium, and horses (n=6). METHODS In(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe and compare the distribution of technetium Tc 99m (99mTc) pertechnate following intraosseous or i.v. injection (with or without use of a tourniquet) in the distal portion of the forelimb in standing horses. ANIMALS 4 horses. PROCEDURE Each horse received 4 forelimb treatments in random sequence: intraosseous infusion with(More)
The long term effects of multiphasic health screening (MHS) are rarely studied. In 1964 a random sample of 546 women and 544 men born 1899, 1904, 1909, 1914 or 1919 equally distributed on cohorts from the Swedish town Eskilstuna were invited to examination. For several reasons 167 persons (15%) did not participate in the study. In 1969 the whole sample was(More)
