Relationships Between Current and Past Binge Drinking and Systolic Blood Pressure in Young Adults.
(J Adolesc Health, 2016-03)
PURPOSE: Heavy episodic (i.e., "binge") drinking (i.e., ≥five drinks/occasion) is highly prevalent among young adults; those who binge do so four times per month on average, consuming nine drinks on average on each occasion. ...
Refusal in testicular cancer patients: implications for surveillance.
(Br J Cancer, 1992-05)
Age mediation of frontoparietal activation during visual feature search.
Activation of frontal and parietal brain regions is associated with attentional control during visual search. We used fMRI to characterize age-related differences in frontoparietal activation in a highly efficient feature ...
Study in vitro and in vivo of nociceptin/orphanin FQ(1-13)NH2 analogues substituting N-Me-Gly for Gly2 or Gly3.
In the present study, two analogues containing N-Me-Gly (Sarcosine, Sar) were synthesized to further investigate the structural-activity relationships of orphanin FQ/nociceptin (OFQ/NC, NC). The replacement of Gly(2) or ...
Effects of nociceptin (13-17) in pain modulation at supraspinal level in mice.
(Neurosci Lett, 2002-10-11)
This work was designed to observe the effects of nociceptin(13-17), one of the main metabolites of nociceptin (also termed orphanin FQ), in pain modulation at supraspinal level in mice. Intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) ...
Changing epidemiology of serious bacterial infections in febrile infants without localizing signs.
(PLoS One, 2010-08-27)
OBJECTIVE: Historically, management of infants with fever without localizing signs (FWLS) has generated much controversy, with attempts to risk stratify based on several criteria. Advances in medical practice may have altered ...
Utility of telomerase-pot1 fusion protein in vascular tissue engineering.
(Cell Transplant, 2010)
While advances in regenerative medicine and vascular tissue engineering have been substantial in recent years, important stumbling blocks remain. In particular, the limited life span of differentiated cells that are harvested ...
Associations between BMI and home, school and route environmental exposures estimated using GPS and GIS: do we see evidence of selective daily mobility bias in children?
(Int J Health Geogr, 2015-02-06)
BACKGROUND: This study examined whether objective measures of food, physical activity and built environment exposures, in home and non-home settings, contribute to children's body weight. Further, comparing GPS and GIS measures ...
Management of prostate cancer in older men: recommendations of a working group of the International Society of Geriatric Oncology.
(BJU Int, 2010-08)
Prostate cancer is the most prevalent cancer in men and predominantly affects older men (aged >or=70 years). The median age at diagnosis is 68 years; overall, two-thirds of prostate cancer-related deaths occur in men aged ...
Watch me grow: a garden-based pilot intervention to increase vegetable and fruit intake in preschoolers.
(BMC Public Health, 2013-04-18)
BACKGROUND: Americans, including children, consume fewer fruit and vegetable servings than is recommended. Given that young children spend large amounts of time in child care centers, this may be an ideal venue for increasing ...
