Objective. Popliteal muscle and tendon injuries are thought to be unusual. This report describes the magnetic resonance (MR) appearances of popliteus muscle and tendon injuries. Design and patients. The study included 24 patients where the diagnoses of popliteal injuries were prospectively made based on MR appearances. The study group was taken from 2412(More)
This report describes the neurological and electrophysiological examination of 35 subjects with leprosy (average duration of symptoms 3.4 years, average time since diagnosis 7.5 months). Clinical examination in the distribution of non-dominant median and ulnar nerves was performed with the following clinical methods: touch sensation with 0.05 gm.(More)
Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) is a ubiquitous redox-sensitive transcription factor involved in the pro-inflammatory response to several factors, including cytokines and oxidative stress. Upon activation, NF-kappaB translocates into the nucleus and binds to specific nucleotide sequences. The cellular responses to inflammatory and stress signals have been(More)
Analysis of 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE), a potent vasoconstrictor produced by the cytochrome P450 pathway, presently requires high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC/MS). To simplify 20-HETE analysis, competitive ELIS As were developed using polyclonal anti-20-HETE coated ELISA plates to(More)

Recent academic and policy studies focus on offshoring as a cost-of-labor driven activity that has a direct impact on employment opportunities in the countries involved. This paper broadens this perspective by examining the 24-hour knowledge factory as a model of information systems offshoring that leverages other strategic factors beyond cost savings. A(More)
TO SUMMARIZE, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE: (1) In a case of acute trichinosis an extensive leucocytosis, with great absolute and relative increase in the number of eosinophilic cells in the blood, associated with a coincident decrease in the quantity of neutrophilic elements. (2) From the examination of specimens of muscle removed during life, besides(More)
Axial magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the patellofemoral compartment was performed in 75 patients with arthroscopic correlation. Proton density and T2 (2500/20/80) weighted images were obtained in all patients. Chondromalacia in stages I and II could not be reliably identified with MR imaging. For the evaluation of stage III and IV chondromalacia, the(More)
