Amitai Regev and Integrals and Sums Superficially, this article, dedicated with friendship and admiration to Amitai Regev, has nothing to do with either Polynomial Identity Rings, Representation Theory, or Young tableaux, to all of which he made so many outstanding contributions. But anyone who knows even a little about Ami-tai Regev's remarkable and(More)
OBJECTIVE To carry out a systematic review of the literature examining the efficacy of psychological interventions (e.g., relaxation, biofeedback, cognitive-behavioral therapy) in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS Studies that met the following criteria were included: random assignment, wait-list or usual care control condition;(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the quality of reports of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in the pediatric population. We also examined whether there was a change in the quality of reporting over time. METHODS We used a systematic sample of 251 reports of RCTs that used a CAM intervention. The quality of each report(More)
Thirteen patients with Wilson's disease were compared with seven cirrhotic and 13 normal controls to define better the haematological abnormalities in this condition. Hypersplenism (anaemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, and reduced red cell survival) commonly occurred in patients with both Wilson's disease and cirrhosis. These abnormalities correlated with(More)
Clinical, biochemical, haematological and erythrokinetic studies were performed on 63 adult males with prolonged lead exposure. Their most common symptoms and findings were abdominal pain (62%), gingival lead lines (48%), headache and/or dizziness (33%), muscle cramps (32%), anaemia (19%), and fatigue (18%). Colicky abdominal pain (27%) and gingival lead(More)
For more than 200 years, biomedicine has approached the treatment of disease by studying disease processes (patho-genesis), inferring causal connections and developing specific approaches for therapeutically interfering with those processes. This pathogenic approach has been highly successful in acute and traumatic disease but less successful in chronic(More)
Sharp L p extensions of Pitt's inequality expressed as a weighted Sobolev inequality are obtained using convolution estimates and Stein-Weiss potentials. Optimal constants are obtained for the full Stein-Weiss potential as a map from L p to itself which in turn yield semi-classical Rellich inequalities on R n. Additional results are obtained for Stein-Weiss(More)
