Career counselors use occupational information to help clients make informed vocational decisions. They would therefore be likely to benefit from understanding how visual images contained in such materials depict the world of work. A review of the…

The controversy over the reliability of ectocranial suture status (open vs. closed) as an age estimation stimulated the pursuit of Meindl and Lovejoy's suggestion (Meindl and Lovejoy [1985]Am. J. Phys. Anthropol. 68:57-66) for large scale analysis.…

A 52-year-old man was referred for evaluation of three mildly pruritic patches on his right lateral upper arm, left shoulder, and right posterior thigh. The lesions had been present for 4 years, and although itching had decreased, they had failed to…

The authors prospectively investigated stress in 71, mostly European American pregnant women. Conservation of Resources (COR) theory was applied to assess the impact of resource losses and gains that occur in women's lives. Resources were defined as…

Numerous physiologic derangements can result when body-builders attempt to augment their muscle definition by using diuretics, potassium supplements, and dietary restrictions., A case report describes a 27-year-old male professional bodybuilder who…

The relationship of weight and self-esteem to depressive symptomatology was examined among 36 African American and 96 European American pregnant inner-city women. Lower self-esteem and higher deviations from medically ideal weight predicted increased…

N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor/channel (NMDAR) and voltage-dependent calcium channel (VDCC) antagonists applied independently reduce the magnitude of long-term potentiation (LTP) in area CA1 of the hippocampal slice preparation. When used in…

The purpose of this paper is to discuss how failure rates are influenced by I) normversus criterion-referenced scoring, 2) case specificity and case weights, and 3) compensatory and conjunctive standards. This paper will highlight comparisons of…

This study presents a statistical analysis of variability in six measures of enamel prism and ameloblast size and spacing gathered using confocal microscopy, and applies the results to a consideration of appropriate sampling strategies for taxonomic…

Noninvasive diagnostic studies, i.e., sputum gram stain, sputum culture, blood culture and antigen detection assays will assist the clinician in the selection of initial antimicrobial therapy in some patients. These tests may be even more valuable in…

The present study examined the construct and concurrent validity of the Career Factors Inventory (CFI; Chartrand, Robbins, and Morrill, 1989). The CFI, along with the Career Choice Status Inventory (Savickas, 1993), the Vocational Identity Scale…

Previous anatomical studies demonstrated vagal innervation to the ovary and distal colon and suggested the vagus nerve has uterine inputs. Recent behavioral and physiological evidence indicated that the vagus nerves conduct sensory information from…

BACKGROUND: The Manchester operation consists of amputation of the cervix, leading some patients to believe that they have undergone a hysterectomy. CASES: A 69-year-old woman with vaginal discharge proved to have a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma…

Human papillomavirus (HPV) type 18 DNA was found in an aggressively invasive adenocarcinoma tumor from a woman who had an intact hymen and denied any prior sexual intercourse. The viral DNA was detected within the tumor tissue by polymerase chain…

The Adult Career Concerns Inventory (ACCI) uses an attitudinal item-response scale to measure the planning attitudes dimension of career adaptability. This study examined the psychometric properties of the ACCI when used with a behavioral…

Objective: To assess the accuracy of a questionnaire developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), given to pregnant women for identification of children at risk for lead poisoning. Methods: The study population consisted of all…

To determine the feasibility of assessing dopamine uptake using in vitro superfusion, striatal tissue from ovariectomized female rats was infused with dopamine (1 microM), nomifensine (1 mM), or a combination of dopamine and nomifensine. Treatment…

Brain slices have been responsible for the majority of advances in our understanding of the cellular aspects of altered synaptic strength underlying memory, long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD), and increases and decreases,…

We report a unique case of Wilms tumor presenting as a urethral mass in a patient with bilateral ureteral duplication. The prolapsing urothelial component was contiguous with the intrarenal Wilms tumor and consisted of fetal skeletal muscle free of…

Based mainly on the simplicity of its calculation, the urea reduction ratio (URR) has been suggested as an alternative to urea kinetic modeling (Kt/V) as a measure of hemodialysis adequacy. However, recent studies have raised questions concerning the…

Esophageal stenosis caused by an intrinsic congenital deformity is uncommon in infants and children. The main forms of stenosis are congenital esophageal web, congenital stricture caused by tracheobronchial remnants, and congenital idiopathic…

The authors identified the origin of a high-density artifact with mammography film. An acrylic ramp phantom (thickness, 0-7 cm) was used to create a continuously variable radiation exposure. A perturbation in the curve of optical density versus…

The limited soft-tissue envelope technique for an uninstrumented single-level posterolateral lumbar fusion has been studied in a group of 23 patients. It resulted in a solid fusion in 21 of 23 (91%) patients. Overall, 18 of 23 (78%) patients had a…

In an era of competition in health care delivery, those who pay for care are interested in supporting primarily those activities that add value to the clinical enterprise. The authors report on their 1998 project to develop a conceptual model for…

While patient care has been shifting to the ambulatory setting, the education of health care professionals has remained essentially hospital-based. One factor discouraging the movement of training into community-based ambulatory settings is the lack…

In the present study we examined the ultrastructural modifications as well as the precise distribution of DNA and RNA in RT4 cell nucleoli following a 3-h exposure to nontoxic or toxic doses of ametantrone (AMT), poly(adenylate-uridylate)…

In view of the lack of sufficient data regarding the morphology of the cystic duct and the extensive focus on the gallbladder, a preliminary examination of the cystic duct response to female sex steroid treatment was conducted to follow up a detailed…
