BACKGROUND Decades of improper disposal of uranium-mining wastes on the Navajo Nation has resulted in adverse human and ecological health impacts as well as socio-cultural problems. As the Navajo people become increasingly aware of the contamination problems, there is a need to develop a risk-communication strategy to properly inform tribal members of the(More)
This study was undertaken to determine the contribution of various structures in the posterior cruciate ligament-deficient knee in resisting posterior tibial translation. With "isolated" injuries to the posterior cruciate ligament, the amount of posterior translation will decrease with the posterior drawer test as the knee is taken from neutral to internal(More)
BACKGROUND Commercial air travel either in the postoperative setting or after open skull fracture has the potential to place patients at unnecessary risk. Although the timing is not clearly known, it should be established that there is no persistent fistulous tract that could introduce additional intraparenchymal air. CASE DESCRIPTION We present a case of(More)
Laser light scattering and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) are used to study hemoglobin in the aqueous phase. The impact that salts [NaCl, Ca₃(PO₄)₂] and iron oxide nanoparticles have on the hemoglobin size are also studied. The first set of experiments examined hemoglobin aggregates in the aqueous phases in the presence of salts and nanoparticles.(More)
The natural products kahalalide F, halichondrin B, and discodermolide are relatively large structures that were originally harvested from marine organisms. They are oxygen rich structures that, to varying degrees, should have the ability to bind iron (II or III) by Fe-O and/or Fe-N bonds. In this semi empirical study, the binding of these natural products(More)
(Abstract) Recent studies have provided conflicting results in regards to equine intradermal skin testing and its use in defining causative antigens in IgE mediated diseases such as equine recurrent airway obstruction (RAO). This study was divided into two experiments. In the first experiment of this study, the hypothesis tested was normal horses would have(More)
An exercise that introduces undergraduate chemistry majors to concepts associated with intellectual property is outlined. The assignment includes an introduction to the terminology associated with starting a company based on intellectual property and to nondisclosure agreements. After this, the students write a draft patent application. With over 150,000(More)
