1 The platelet aggregation response to arachidonic acid ex vivo was measured in six volunteers daily before and for 10 days after a single oral dose of 600 mg aspirin. 2 Arachidonic acid induced aggregation of platelets from all subjects before aspirin and aggregation occurred after an interval which varied inversely with the concentration of arachidonic(More)
Clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) in public health and human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome are needed to eliminate healthcare disparities, especially with African American women, ages 25-44. This population of women accounts for 64% of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome cases reported among women, and most of these women need(More)
Many patients receiving bisoprolol treatment might also require warfarin or theophylline therapy. Two studies were carried out in healthy volunteers to investigate the possibility that bisoprolol might interact with warfarin or theophylline, both of which have low therapeutic ratios. In a balanced, two-way, crossover study, eight men and four women took(More)
Frequent replacement soft contact lenses must have good reproducibility in order to avoid clinical problems arising from manufacturing variations in lens parameters. This study assessed the actual and potential process capability of eight frequent replacement lenses (monthly or 2-weekly replacement) in relation to back vertex power, back optic zone radius,(More)
Three separate studies were carried out to assess the renal and gastrointestinal tolerability of lornoxicam, and its effects on haemostasis and hepatic microsomal oxidation. Haemostasis and hepatic microsomal oxidation. Six men and 6 women had salivary antipyrine half-life determined before and on the last day of 14 days' treatment with lornoxicam 4 mg(More)
The classical tricyclic antidepressant drugs effectively relieve the symptoms of depression, but they have the potential to be severely toxic to the cardiovascular system--including postural hypotension after therapeutic doses and lethal arrhythmias after overdosage. Paroxetine has been shown to be of similar efficacy to the tricyclic antidepressants but(More)
Wave-cut pluvial shoreline scarps are ideal natural experiments in hillslope evolution because the ages of these scarps are often precisely known and because they form with a range of heights, alluvial textures, and microclimates (i.e., orientation). Previous work using midpoint-slope methods on pluvial scarps in the Basin and Range concluded that scarp(More)
PURPOSE Frequent replacement soft contact lenses, and particularly toric soft lenses, require good reproducibility in order to avoid clinical problems arising from manufacturing variations in their parameters. This study assessed the actual and potential process capability of six frequent replacement toric soft lenses in relation to sphere power, cylinder(More)
