The aim of this study was to determine the associations between the presence and extent of calcified atherosclerosis in multiple vascular beds and systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, pulse pressure, mean arterial pressure, isolated systolic hypertension, and hypertension. A total of 9510 patients (42.5% women) underwent electron beam computed(More)

There is no consensus on the optimum method to identify gonadotropin pulses in serum. We compared two approaches for detecting gonadotropin peaks. The first employed the conventional criterion of an increment from nadir to peak of 3 times the intraassay coefficient of variation (3 CV). The second identified peaks by Student's t test to quadruplicate(More)
Objectives: 1) HIV prevention, using a mechanical cervical barrier in combination with microbicide. 2) Prevention of pregnancy. 3) Shield the cervix to prevent sperm penetration and Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and HIV virus invasion. Methods: We investigated a new FDA approved cervical barrier FemCap (Figure 1). The FemCap is a contraceptive device that is(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate an observed epidemic of gynecomastia among Haitian refugees in US detention centers in 1981 and 1982. METHODS All identifiable environmental exposures were investigated for estrogenic and antiandrogenic activity. RESULTS A high incidence of gynecomastia was observed among Haitian refugees in five detention centers in the United(More)
