In 0.9 fb(-1) of pp[over] collisions, the D0 Collaboration presented evidence for single top quark production in events with an isolated lepton, missing transverse momentum, and two to four jets. We examine these data to study the Lorentz structure of the Wtb coupling. The standard model predicts a left-handed vector ...

Biochemistry and molecular biology occupy a unique place in the medical school curriculum. They are frequently studied prior to medical school and are fundamental to the teaching of biomedical sciences in undergraduate medical education. These two circumstances, and the trend toward increased integration among the disciplines, have led to reconsideration ...

Any assistance an author receives with writing a scientific article that is not acknowledged in the article is described as ghost-writing. Articles ghost-written by medical writers engaged by pharmaceutical companies who have a vested interest in the content have caused concern after scandals revealed misleading content in some articles. A ...

Electrophilic iodocyclization of unsaturated amides with an internal vinylic halogen (Cl, Br, or I) substitution afforded exclusively the corresponding cyclic iminoketones via iodolactamization. On the other hand, amides having a terminal vinylic halogen substituent underwent iodolactonization only. Theoretical calculations revealed that the iodocyclization proceeds via the intramolecular iodonium ion transfer ...

It is a daily occurrence for Grandpa's Compounding Pharmacy in Placerville, California, to compound preparations to meet the unique needs of individual human and animal patients. However, until May 2007, there had never been a request for compounded medications for patients weighing 12,500 pounds or 55,000 pounds! When two Eastern ...

Gels were produced using kappa-, iota-, or hybrid-carrageenan at a low (0.2-0.25%) and a high (0.7-1.0%) dosage in skim milk. The microstructure of carrageenan and protein was observed by confocal laser scanning microscopy using direct immunostaining. Additionally, rheology was used to characterize the gels. The low kappa- and iota-carrageenan dosages ...

This is a personal account based on many years experience as a medical writer. It considers aspects of medical writing with particular focus on the intellectual and ethical dilemmas it can raise. What makes medical writing both so interesting and so challenging is the fact that it often takes place ...

A triphenyltin (TPT)-decomposing strain, Pseudomonas aeruginosa CGMCC 1.860, was screened out. It secreted an unknown TPT-decomposing factor into the medium, later shown to be pyochelin, even in the presence of 100 muM iron. To our knowledge, this is the first report of organotin decomposition by pyochelin.

In recent years, intra-hospital computerisation including picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and electronic medical chart system (EMCS) has been rapidly introduced in Japan. The current system has, however, encountered many problems, such as, storage format of images, quality of diagnostic monitors, and compatibility of PACS and EMCS introduced by ...

Calculations of the work required to transform between bcc and fcc phases yield a high-precision bcc-fcc transition line for monodisperse point Yukawa (screened-Coulomb) systems. Our results agree qualitatively but not quantitatively with recently published simulations and phenomenological criteria for the bcc-fcc transition. In particular, the bcc-fcc-fluid triple point lies at ...

The response to a psychotropic medication reflects characteristics of both the medication and the substrate, ie, the individual receiving the medication. Sex is an individual characteristic that influences all elements of the pharmacokinetic process - absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination. The effects of sex on these components of the pharmacokinetic ...

The purpose of this pharmaceutical-care project was to demonstrate that educating a patient's caregiver about extemporaneously compounded medications prior to the patient's discharge and verbally assisting the community pharmacist in the preparation of the compounds can reduce delays and avoid problems in filling these compounds. Two sets of patients and ...

Nucleotide sequences of the mating-type loci MAT1-1 and MAT1-2 of Cordyceps takaomontana were determined, which is the first such report for the clavicipitaceous fungi. MAT1-1 contains two mating-type genes, MAT1-1-1 and MAT1-1-2, but MAT1-1-3 could not be found. On the other hand, MAT1-2 has MAT1-2-1. A pseudogene of MAT1-1-1 is ...

The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether there is a relationship between stuttering on stressed syllables and the duration of these syllables. Sixteen adults who stutter read a text consisting of 226 syllables. The relative stress of each syllable was rated, and syllables were categorized into long- ...

Computer controlled mathematical models of medical outcomes are commonly found in the current medical literature. What is less common is an understanding of the methods used to construct such models, leaving the consumers of medical research to accept the interpretations as presented. A basic knowledge of the concepts used to ...

The medical curriculum in Germany is based on the licensing regulations 'Approbationsordung fur Arzte' (Approbationsordnung, 1970) resulting in a uniform curriculum in all of the country's 36 medical schools. However, the Medizinische Fakultat of the Westfalische Wilhelms-Universitat, Munster, Germany has implemented a modified medical curriculum. It aims to increase practical ...

We propose the adaptation of classical monitoring boundaries for use in cumulative meta-analysis as guidelines for deciding when accumulating evidence is statistically significant and medically convincing. The interpretation of information from a randomized controlled trial is compared with that from a meta-analysis. The concept of optimal information size for a ...

Results of hearing screenings for 226 incarcerated adolescents are presented. Screenings consisted of visual otoscopy check, pure-tone screening, and tympanometry. Failures were defined as excessive cerumen impeding a clear view of the tympanum, failure to respond at 25 dB HL for 1000 through 6000 Hz, or a Jerger Type B ...

Recent reports indicate that violence toward others is a major public health problem in the black community; however, there are few empirical studies that delineate the severity of the problem. The authors have compiled the results of a victimization screening form obtained from a poor outpatient medical population. These results ...

A classification scheme and nomenclature for inhomogeneous refractive-index distributions is proposed which is consistent, unambiguous, and appeals to intuition. The classification is based on (1) the generic shape of the isoindicial surfaces, (2) the detailed dependence of the index on some position coordinate characterizing the isoindicial surfaces, and (3) whether ...

Fingerprint lifting tape has been applied to the lifting of firearms discharge residue from various surfaces. Lifting efficiencies from coarse fabric ranged from 30 to 70%. Use of the technique has been demonstrated in identifying a bullet hole and in measuring residue patterns on floor and firing hand surfaces. In ...

In two subjects with paramyotonia congenita myotonic delay in muscle relaxation, recorded electromyographically and with a displacement transducer, was found to increase with repeated forceful contractions. Myotonia was elicited readily in warm temperatures, was initially aggravated by cooling, but was invariably lost as muscle fatigue developed. The EMG evidence of ...

Polyelectrolytes are water-soluble electrically charged polymers. Their properties are determined by the interplay of the electrical forces, the Brownian motion of the macromolecular chain, and intermolecular Van der Waals forces. Charged polyacids or polybases are stretched by the electrostatic forces, as evidenced by increase in solution viscosity, or by the ...

Recently the lateral width of the cellulose microfibril has been estimated as 30 A rather than about 150 to 200 A, by extrapolation of data from model shadowing experiments. The difference was attributed to a layer of metal deposited during shadowing. However, direct photographs of the same microfibrils parallel and ...
