Economic evaluation of access to musculoskeletal care: the case of waiting for total knee arthroplasty.
(BMC Musculoskelet Disord, 2014-01-18)
BACKGROUND: The projected demand for total knee arthroplasty is staggering. At its root, the solution involves increasing supply or decreasing demand. Other developed nations have used rationing and wait times to distribute ...
Cross-platform analysis of HIV-1 RNA data generated by a multicenter assay validation study with wide geographic representation.
(J Clin Microbiol, 2012-08)
HIV-1 RNA quantitation continues to be extremely important for monitoring patients infected with HIV-1, and a number of assays have been utilized for this purpose. Differences in assay performance with respect to log(10) ...
Total body skeletal muscle mass: estimation by creatine (methyl-d3) dilution in humans.
(J Appl Physiol (1985), 2014-06-15)
Current methods for clinical estimation of total body skeletal muscle mass have significant limitations. We tested the hypothesis that creatine (methyl-d3) dilution (D3-creatine) measured by enrichment of urine D3-creatinine ...
