The widespread use of computerized tomography in evaluating patients with various abdominal complaints gave rise to reports of incidental gastrointestinal luminal wall thickening (GILWT), the clinical significance of which remains uncertain. In order to determine the endoscopic significance of GILWT we reviewed 1609 abdominal and/or pelvic CT scans.(More)
Previous in vitro work demonstrated the incorporation of the major inducible 70k heat shock protein (i.e., 72k HSP) into the biologically active light nucleocapsid (L-NC) variant of canine distemper virus (CDV). Here, in vitro induction of the cellular stress response, characterized by elevated cytoplasmic and intranuclear 72k HSP, enhanced L-NC expression(More)
The effect of cholestyramine administration on the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids was studied in eight normal volunteers. In six subjects the metabolism of sodium taurocholate-(14)C was determined after its intravenous injection before and during the 6th wk of cholestyramine administration, 16 g/day. In two subjects, the metabolism of cholic(More)
The VA's hospital information system, the Decentralized Hospital Computer Program (DHCP), is an integrated system based on a powerful set of software tools with shared data accessible from any of its application modules. It includes many functionally specific application subsystems such as laboratory, pharmacy, radiology, and dietetics. Physicians need(More)
Next-generation wireless networks target dense deployment scenarios where many heterogeneous devices, from high-end laptops to low-power Internet of Things (IoT) devices and wearables, must coexist and operate reliably. With increased deployment of IoT devices and wearables, increasing the energy efficiency without increasing complexity#x002F;cost is highly(More)
an overnight fast was unaltered by cholestyramine. These findings suggest that in normal man bile acid sequestered from the enterohepatic circulation by cholestyramine is replaced by an increase in hepatic synthesis primarily via the pathway leading to production of glycocholic acid. Preliminary reports of this work were presented at the Annual Meeting of(More)
Adult stem cells commonly give rise to transit-amplifying progenitors, whose progeny differentiate into distinct cell types. It is unclear if stem cell niche signals coordinate fate decisions within the progenitor pool. Here we use quantitative analysis of Wnt, Hh, and Notch signalling reporters and the cell fate markers Eyes Absent (Eya) and Castor (Cas)(More)
