For comparison of the impacts of infections due to antimicrobial-resistant bacteria with those of infections due to antimicrobial-susceptible strains of the same bacteria, data were evaluated from 175 published and unpublished reports of investigations of nosocomial and community-acquired infections with selected bacteria. The evaluation of outcomes of(More)
During the period September 1983 through May 1985, Candida parapsilosis was isolated from intravascular sites (blood or vascular catheter tips) in 12 patients at a pediatric hospital. Of 205 patients with cultures of any site positive for Candida species, 32 (16%) had cultures positive for C. parapsilosis. In contrast, of 23 patients with intravascular(More)
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are an essential tool for modeling how causal genetic variants impact cellular function in disease, as well as an emerging source of tissue for regenerative medicine. The preparation of somatic cells, their reprogramming and the subsequent verification of iPSC pluripotency are laborious, manual processes limiting the(More)
The transfer of somatic cell nuclei into oocytes can give rise to pluripotent stem cells that are consistently equivalent to embryonic stem cells, holding promise for autologous cell replacement therapy. Although methods to induce pluripotent stem cells from somatic cells by transcription factors are widely used in basic research, numerous differences(More)
The regenerative medicine field is large, diverse and active worldwide. A variety of different organizational and product models have been successful, and pioneering entrepreneurs have shown both what can work and, critically, what does not. Evolving regulations, novel funding mechanisms combined with new technological breakthroughs are keeping the field in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if an additive effect exists between antenatal corticosteroid administration and postnatal surfactant therapy in the prevention of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in preterm infants. METHODS A randomized, double-blind trial was conducted from April 1990 to June 1994, in which dexamethasone (5 mg every 12 hours for a total of(More)
The discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and concurrent development of protocols for their cell-type specific differentiation have revolutionized studies of diseases and raised the possibility that personalized medicine may be achievable. Realizing the full potential of iPSC will require addressing the challenges inherent in obtaining(More)
Sponsored by the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF), the "Fourth Annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference: Breaking Ground" convened October 13-14, 2009 at The Rockefeller University in New York City to discuss translational stem cell research. Attracting over 400 scientists, patient advocates, and stem cell research supporters from fifteen(More)
It is commonly accepted that general classes of problems are best solved using particular techniques. For example, critical path scheduling problems can often be formulated for solution by linear programming, but this approach would not recommend itself for cost reasons to the vast majority of those having access to a PERT or CPM heuristic package.(More)
