BACKGROUND Little is known about the role of workplace exposures on the risk of renal cell cancer. METHODS A population-based case-control study was undertaken in Montreal to assess the association between hundreds of occupational circumstances and several cancer sites, including the kidney. A total of 142 male patients with pathologically confirmed renal(More)
Trait dissociation might influence the response to panicogens in normal controls. The behavioral effects of 25 microg of cholecystokinin tetrapeptide (CCK-4) were studied in 18 healthy men, nine each with high or low trait dissociation. Subjects with high trait dissociation showed a significantly lower increase of acute dissociative, anxiety and panic(More)
Serial EBV load monitoring of clinically asymptomatic pediatric thoracic organ transplant patients has identified three groups of children who exhibit undetectable (<100 copies/ml), chronic low (100-16,000 copies/ml), or chronic high (>16,000 copies/ml) EBV loads in peripheral blood. Chronic high EBV load patients have a 45% rate of progression to(More)
Weak interactions between bromine, sulphur, and hydrogen are shown to stabilize 2D supramolecular monolayers at the liquid-solid interface. Three different thiophene-based semiconducting organic molecules assemble into close-packed ultrathin ordered layers. A combination of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and density functional theory (DFT) elucidates(More)
Aim To determine the effect of a diet and exercise intervention in pregnant women on total gestational weight gain, weekly weight gain, 42-days postpartum weight retention, mode of delivery, and infant birth weight. METHODS One hundred and one eligible Chinese pregnant women whose pre-pregnancy body mass index ranged from 18.5 to 24.9 were recruited(More)
We use text semantic mining algorithms based on intelligent search engine framework to obtain media information data of stocks. Since media is significantly related to firm size, industry affiliation and whether belongs to important index, we adopt event study and use the residual attention model to examine the relationship between abnormal media(More)
It has been demonstrated that patients with chronic wounds experience the most pain during dressing changes. Currently, researchers focus mostly on analgesics and appropriate dressing materials to relieve pain during dressing changes of chronic wounds. However, the effect of nonpharmacologic interventions, such as virtual reality distraction, on pain(More)
