Private-practice racetrack veterinarians in southern California recorded non-fatal injuries meeting defined criteria in Thoroughbreds for 1 year. Injury incidence was 2.29 injury events per 100 horse-months, which was lower than other studies where trainer reported injury data were collected. Of 477 injuries recorded, 344 (72.1%) were acute and 133 (27.9%) were chronic. Fractures were common (47.6% of injuries), with stress fractures accounting for 14% of injuries. Superficial digital flexor tendonitis and suspensory ligament desmitis accounted for 15...

BACKGROUND: Handwashing in the school setting is important for infectious disease control, yet maintaining adequate handwashing supplies is often made difficult by lack of funds, limited staff time, and student vandalism. This study measured the availability of handwashing supplies for students in New Mexico public schools and determined the impact of scheduled school nurse inspections on the availability of handwashing supplies. METHODS: Participating school districts in New Mexico were matched by size and randomized into intervention and control groups...

REASON FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Biomarkers have shown some in vivo promise for the detection of musculoskeletal injuries, but further study to assess biomarker levels in clinical orthopaedic disease is required. OBJECTIVE: To assess 7 serum biomarkers for the detection of musculoskeletal injuries. METHODS: Two- and 3-year-old racehorses were entered into the study (n = 238). Exit criteria were lack of training for >30 days, or completion of 10 study months...

Hand washing and hand antisepsis are proven infection control measures in the school setting, yet barriers such as lack of soap, paper towels, and hand sanitizer can hinder compliance. This pilot study measured the prevalence of hand cleaning supplies in public schools. Ten school districts (93 schools) participated in school nurse inspections. In November 2008, 90 schools (97%) reported their inspection results. Among 697 total bathrooms, 88.8% had soap and 91.7% had paper towels or hand dryers. Hand sanitizer was reported in 1...

The theory of multielement grid filters is derived and compared with experiment. The properties of the filters can be predicted from a knowledge of the characteristics of the individual grids. The filters are treated as asymmetric Fabry-Perot interferometers coupled and in series. Room temperature and low temperature data for combination filters are presented. The fabrication techniques and materials are described for filters in a dielectric.

CCN5 is a secreted heparin- and estrogen-regulated matricellular protein that inhibits vertebrate smooth muscle cell proliferation and motility. CCN5 is expressed throughout murine embryonic development in most organs and tissues. However, after embryonic development is complete, we hypothesized that CCN5 distribution would be largely restricted to small set of tissues, including smooth muscle cells of the arteries, uterus, airway, and digestive tract. Because CCN5 inhibits proliferation of smooth muscle cells in vitro, it might function to prevent excessive growth in vivo...

Gay bathhouses have long been subject to community and public health pressures owing to the perceived link between the behaviors associated with these settings and various sexually transmitted infections. The straightforward solution of closing gay bathhouses has not worked for long when it has been tried. The more complex approach of working with management to develop holistic prevention programs can be problematic also, because developing successful HIV/STD prevention programs requires the collaboration of multiple stake-holders...

OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to determine whether the fetal acidosis and hypoxia previously demonstrated in animal models with maternal nifedipine infusion is the result of a decrease in uteroplacental or fetoplacental blood flow and whether this effect is exacerbated by a higher drug concentration and duration of infusion. STUDY DESIGN: Ten chronically instrumented pregnant ewes (gestational age 0.9 term, term = 145 days) received nifedipine infusions (n = 7) or vehicle (95% ethanol/water, 3:7) (n = 3)...

We have tested all 98 workshop antibodies for blood group antigen reactivity. In initial experiments we used a routine agglutination technique with A1LEb and BLea erythrocytes to screen for reactivity with most of the possible antigens. Except for WS78 which reacted with both types of erythrocyte and WS92 which reacted with A1Leb, there was only very weak or no reactivity. We therefore used indirect immunofluorescence and a cell analyser to increase sensitivity and tested a variety of erythrocytes expressing different blood group antigens...

In the rat lung, we found that the Lycopersicon esculentum (LEA) lectin specifically binds to the epithelium of bronchioles and alveoli whereas Griffonia simplicifolia I (GS-I) binds to the endothelium of alveolar capillaries. The differential binding affinity of these lectins was examined on semithin (approximately 0.5 microns) and thin (less than 0.1 (microns) frozen sections of rat lung lavaged to remove alveolar macrophages. On semithin frozen sections, LEA bound to epithelial cells lining bronchioles and the alveoli (type I, but not type II epithelial cells)...
