the end-stage renal disease networks: an attempt through federal regulation to regionalize health care delivery.recognizing the needs of patients with end-stage renal disease (esrd), the federal government passed legislation in 1972, establishing medicare coverage for 92 per cent of the diseased victims regardless of age. however, federal health planners did not in many areas, take into account what was already being accomplished on the state and local level. as a result, the implementation of the provision has created complications of its own. this case study of new jersey illustrates that until existent ...2004327167
treatment of hypertension: the place of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors in the nineties.the past decade has seen a shift in the strategy for hypertension treatment from stepped therapy--a highly structured monolithic series of steps--to recommendations for a more individualized selection of treatment. severe hypertension is a clear indicator to bypass traditional steps. demographic factors, such as age, gender, and race, are often cited, but have proved to be less helpful. concomitant medical conditions and problems are very common and are more often the crucial determinants in the ...20051283428

different activation domains stimulate transcription from remote ('enhancer') and proximal ('promoter') positions.we reported previously that the lymphocyte-derived octamer transcription factor 2a (oct-2a or otf-2a) activated both natural immunoglobulin promoters and synthetic promoters which contain the 'octamer' site, but was unable by itself to stimulate transcription from a remote enhancer position. here we examine a larger set of transcription factors with respect to their proximal versus remote activation. since a transcription factor may contain more than one activation domain, we have chosen to stud ...20061464321
chromosomal illegitimate recombination in mammalian cells is associated with intrinsically bent dna elements.illegitimate recombination is the most frequent mechanism for chromosomal rearrangements in mammalian cells, yet little is known about this process. most of the studies to date have looked at the sequences present at illegitimate junctions. these revealed the presence of recurrent dna motifs, none of which was consistently found. we have undertaken to determine if intrinsic dna structures such as bent dna elements could be a major determinant in chromosomal illegitimate recombination. using a tw ...20061464328

lymphatic distribution of an anti-tumor agent in postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy in gastric cancer: fat-emulsified preparation of 1-(2-tetrahydrofuryl)-5-fluorouracil in 8 postoperative patients with gastric cancer the effectiveness of fat emulsification of tegafur as a means of improving the drug distribution in the lymphatic tissue was studied. a water-in-oil type of emulsion of tegafur (ft-w/o) and an oil-in-water type of emulsion of tegafur (ft-o/w) were orally administered. a fistula in the thoracic duct, prepared in advance, was used to collect lymph. the concentrations of tegafur and 5-fu were compared in simultaneously obtained specimens of lymph and ...20133937835
[hormonal activity of the hypophysis-gonadal system in male hamadryas baboons in relationship to their hierarchical position].hierarchic status-dependent hormonal activity of pituitary-gonadal system was studied in an isolated group of hamadryas baboons. testosterone level was higher in dominating males. the level of sex hormone was higher in aged animals with great muscle mass. no correlation was observed between hierarchic status of hamadryas baboon males and the blood level of luteinizing hormone.20133955222
pseudofractures of the cervical vertebral body.a lucency traversing obliquely across the inferior-posterior aspect of cervical vertebral bodies may be a normal variant due to osteophytes of the uncinate processes or transverse processes with a resultant mach band phenomenon. this could be misinterpreted as a fracture of the vertebral body in a patient with a history of cervical injury. a review of normal lateral cervical vertebral films obtained on patients with no traumatic history showed this phenomenon to occur in 27% of adults. it was no ...20133726567
autoradiography of alpha- and beta-emitters using a charged-particle imaging system.a newly developed charged-particle imaging system was applied to rapid measurements of the distribution of alpha- and beta-emitters. the imaging system consists of a zns(ag) screen, two tapered fibers, an image intensifier, and a polaroid film. the image obtained with the system shows very good quality, namely, a spatial resolution of more than 6 line pairs (lp)/mm and a distortion of less than 2.5%. as the system is capable of detecting each alpha-particle separately, the distribution of alpha- ...20133685457
