BACKGROUND Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) reflects the maturation of the brain microstructure. Although preterm infants are at significant risk for altered brain microstructure, it remains unclear whether this is affected by prematurity itself or other clinical factors. OBJECTIVES To investigate DTI parameters in preterm infants at a term-equivalent age(More)
This cross-sectional study tests a conceptual financial socialization process model, specifying four-levels that connect anticipatory socialization during adolescence to young adults' current financial learning, to their financial attitudes, and to their financial behavior. A total of 2,098 first-year college students (61.9% females) participated in the(More)
Preterm infants are vulnerable to the oxidative stress due to the production of large amounts of free radicals, antioxidant system insufficiency, and immature oligodendroglial cells. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a pivotal role in the development of periventricular leukomalacia. The three most common ROS are superoxide (O2(•-)), hydroxyl radical(More)
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate survival rate changes after the introduction of inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) therapy, and to identify the factors that influence these changes in neonates with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) at a single center. A total of 48 neonates were divided into two groups based on the time of admission, i.e., into(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Using a two-time longitudinal survey, we studied a cohort of college students (N = 1511) to develop a socialization model of the proposed pathways leading to healthy financial development. The participants ranged in age from 18 to 21 years at Wave 1 and 20 to 24 years at Wave 2. After controlling for gender, ethnicity, SES, and(More)
PURPOSE Eosinophilia is common in premature infants, and its incidence increases with a shorter gestation period. We investigated the clinical significance of eosinophilia in premature infants born at <34 weeks gestation. METHODS We analyzed the medical records of premature infants born at <34 weeks gestation who were admitted to the neonatal intensive(More)
Peroxiredoxins (Prdx), a family of antioxidant proteins, have important defensive roles in the degenerative brain diseases and neuronal cell death in adult subjects. However, little is known in the neonatal brain. Here, we studied the developmental expression of Prdxs and their response to dexamethasone in the perinatal rat brain. Prdx 1 expression(More)

In 2007 we launched APLUS, a longitudinal study following a freshmen cohort group through its college years to better understand the financial development processes of young adults. The only longitudinal study of its kind, APLUS is a crucial first step in learning how to better prepare our youth to be financially self-sufficient. From the inception of the(More)
The symptoms related to gastrointestinal (GI) tract are sometimes chief complaints in patients with endocrine disease. Thyrotoxicosis is a rare, but notable cause for unexplained and repeated vomiting. Here, we report an adolescent patient with thyrotoxicosis who was initially presented with repeated vomiting and epigastric pain. A 13-year-old female was(More)
