BACKGROUND Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) is the most common procedure for weight loss surgery but has multiple complications. This study evaluates the use of reinforced circular staplers (RCS) and their effects on reducing gastrojejunal anastomotic complications. METHODS We conducted a retrospective chart review from January 2007 to November 2008.(More)
Recombinant DNA techniques were used to isolate the Rickettsia prowazekii citrate synthase gene on the plasmid vector pBR322 by functional complementation of a gltA mutation of Escherichia coli K-12. Analysis of citrate synthase activity in crude extracts revealed that the enzyme expressed in E. coli retains the regulatory control mechanisms characteristic(More)
Tetracycline was compared to clindamycin as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of moderate to moderately severe acne under double-blind controlled conditions. Both antibiotics were efficacious and differences were not appreciable. Lesion counts of both comedones and pustules were reduced and clinical improvement was noted in the majority of subjects.

Rickettsia prowazekii accumulated radioactivity from [adenine-2,8-3H]NAD but not from [nicotinamide-4-3H]NAD, which demonstrated that NAD was not taken up intact. Extracellular NAD was hydrolyzed by rickettsiae with the products of hydrolysis, nicotinamide mononucleotide and AMP, appearing in the incubation medium in a time- and temperature-dependent(More)
