Using transmission and scanning electron microscopy, the mature spermatozoa of four bivalves of the family Veneridae--Gafrarium tumidum and Circe scripta (Circinae), Pitar sulfureum (Pitarinae) and Gomphina aequilatera (Tapetinae)--are described for the first time and compared with those of other bivalves, particularly other heterodonts. As our observations(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess bone-muscle (B-M) indices as risk factors for incident fractures in men. METHODS Participants of the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS) Study completed a peripheral quantitative computed tomography scan at 66% of their tibial length. Bone macrostructure, estimates of bone strength, and muscle area were computed. Areal bone mineral(More)
Arsenic Trioxide (As2O3) is an effective agent for treating acute promyelocytic leukemia achieving a complete remission rate of about 60% to 90%. It is similar to all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) when treating acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), because both agents have limited side effects compared to conventional chemotherapy, although the treatment period(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The objective of this study was to document the clinical experience of cefpirome use in the treatment of febrile neutropenia in everyday medical practice. METHODS This was an open, non-controlled multicenter study. Patients with fever and neutropenia were started on cefpirome empirically. Response to therapy was evaluated 72 to 96 h(More)
A long-lasting emulsified colloidal substrate (LECS) was developed for continuous carbon and nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI) release to remediate trichloroethylene (TCE)-contaminated groundwater under reductive dechlorinating conditions. The developed LECS contained nZVI, vegetable oil, surfactants (Simple Green™ and lecithin), molasses, lactate, and(More)
Osteoporosis is the most prevalent metabolic bone disease and a major clinical and public health problem. Heredity plays an important and well-established role in determining the lifetime risk of this disease. Major efforts are currently underway to identify the specific genes and their allelic variations that contribute to the heritable component to(More)
