Although clearance of beta(2)-microglobulin is greater with hemodiafiltration than with high-flux hemodialysis, beta(2)-microglobulin concentrations after long-term hemodiafiltration are only slightly less than those obtained with high-flux hemodialysis. Resistance to beta(2)-microglobulin transfer between body compartments could explain this observation.(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the relative effectiveness of athletic taping and a semirigid orthosis in providing inversion-eversion range restriction before, during, and after a 3 hour volleyball practice. The effect of each support method on the subjects' vertical jumping ability was also assessed. Fourteen ankles were treated with both methods(More)
Fourteen patients with persistent epithelial ovarian cancer documented at second look laparotomy after combination chemotherapy were treated with 146 cycles of alpha-recombinant interferon (rIFN-alpha 2) administered i.p. The initial dose was 5 X 10(6) units which was escalated weekly to 50 X 10(6) units over 4 weeks and then continued weekly for a total of(More)
Nifedipine is a prototypical dihydropyridine calcium channel "blocker" that can cause hypotension and cardiac conduction abnormalities. When compared to other calcium channel antagonists, overdoses have been reported to be relatively benign with treatment consisting mainly of supportive care. We report two pediatric cases of death secondary to accidental(More)
A phase I trial of simultaneously administered recombinant interleukin-2 (rIL-2) and recombinant human IL-4 (rHuIL-4) was conducted to evaluate the toxicity and the clinical and immunologic effects of this cytokine combination. Thirty-nine eligible patients with refractory malignancy were treated at eight different dose levels (1A to 3B): 1-3 of rIL-2 [3.0,(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the support effectiveness of three ankle orthoses before, during, and after a 90 minute softball practice. The effect of each support method on the athletes' base running ability was also assessed. Twenty-four ankles with no history of ankle pathology were divided into three groups (n = 8), and randomly assigned to(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a semirigid orthosis in restricting ankle inversion-eversion range of motion (ROM), and evaluate its effect on subjects' ability to produce muscular torque, during pre- and post-exercise test conditions. Thirty healthy subjects, 15 males and 15 females, with no history of right ankle injury(More)
Prior animal studies have suggested that flumazenil may blunt GHB’s sedative-hypnotic affects. We hypothesized that flumazenil would decrease the affects of GHB in a murine model of intoxication. We performed a controlled, pilot experiment using 32 mice divided into 3 groups. All mice received intraperitoneal injections of GHB (1.5 g/kg). Group I received(More)
A syringe needle (SN) is commonly used to obtain blood specimens from the femoral vein. The vacuum tube (VT) method avoids the needle stick potential of the SN technique during transfer of blood from the syringe to the collection tubes. We compared the perceived safety, patient pain, and efficacy of SN and VT for femoral phlebotomy in a prospective trial.(More)
