Immigrants from the former Soviet Union have a higher prevalence of cardiac risk factors and more problems obtaining health care in the United States than American-born Caucasians. This study compared differences between patients of these two populations admitted for diagnosis of chest pain or shortness of breath. Immigrants from the former Soviet Union(More)
Randomized trials have demonstrated the superiority of primary angioplasty with stent implantation over balloon angioplasty alone in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, it remains unknown whether the beneficial outcomes that are attained in clinical trials can be generalized to community-based practice. We conducted a retrospective(More)
To establish correlations between parameters of otoacoustic emission and audiometric thresholds, we have examined 30 ears (28 patients) with high-frequency neurosensory hypoacusis. The analysis of the findings was made in microstructural frequency resolution. It was discovered that peaks of spontaneous otoacoustic emission correspond by frequency range to(More)
BACKGROUND Targeting of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) pathway is a promising treatment strategy for aggressive androgen-refractory prostate cancer (PCa). The effect of treating the androgen-resistant PCa cell line DU145 with a combination of the anti-EGFR drug cetuximab and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) was evaluated. MATERIALS AND(More)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a chronic illness of the cardiovascular system that progressively diminishes the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. The acoustic method of CAD diagnosis is safe, inexpensive and easy to administer and could be suitable as an early screening tool. However, few studies have shown clinically significant accuracy using this(More)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in the United States. Although progression of CAD can be controlled using drugs and diet, it is usually detected in advanced stages when invasive treatment is required. Current methods to detect CAD are invasive and/or costly, hence not suitable as a regular screening tool to detect CAD in early(More)
Threshold testing of cardiac rhythm devices is essential to monitoring the proper functioning of such devices (1). However, the currently method of applying multiple ECG leads to the patient is burdensome and time consuming (2). We are presenting a completely new way to perform cardiac rhythm device threshold testing using pulse oximetry. Twenty patients,(More)
