A case of obsessive compulsive disorder relieved with cognitive behavioral therapy
In modern Japan, fluvoxamine is the only choice adopted for OCD, although Kamijima et al. in 2004 have provided
evidence for clinical application of paroxetine for the effective treatment of said disorder.
The major factors affecting water quality related to current fish culture industry include feces of cultured fish,
nitrogen/phosphorus dissolution from residual feeds deposited at the bottom of the fishing grounds, and dispersion of
In general, the shorter the gestation period of immature infants with low birth weights, the higher is the body fluid
ratio, a birth weight of 500 - 1000 g indicates 84% body fluid, where 52% of said body fluid content constitutes
As enzymatic inhibitions are subjected to the influence of 4 categories of N-removal-related enzymes (Ni-reducing,
nitrite-reducing, N monoxide-reducing, and N-suboxidizing enzymes), accommodating an anoxic condition has
hitherto been thought as a prerequisite in Ni removal by denitrification.
A cell grown in mouse ascitic fluid to a concentration of 1 106 cells were subcutaneously transplanted into one
thigh of each animal. About a week later, animals were included in the study if the tumor had not invaded the
muscle layer, as indicated by palpation. At the time the volume of tumors was about 100mm3.
At the time of registration, 2 groups of patients were randomized for SRC and PRX regimen respectively: the SRC
and PRX groups were regimened at 40 and 20 mg/day, respectively. In both groups, dosing was initiated within 6
At 6 months post-treatment, the mean serum lipid levels of both groups were evaluated with the two-sample t-test.
The T-CHO (p<0.0001), LDL (p=0.0101) levels of PRX group were significantly lower than those of SRC group, while
the TG levels were significantly (p=0.0354) attenuated in the PRX group compared with the SRC group.
The fracture-to-surgery periods for VBG and NVBG were 70.5 and 16.0 months respectively, indicating the former
were subjected to a longer nonunion period before surgery. The external immobilization periods for both VBG and
NVBG approximated to 6 weeks, yielding no significant differences. As for the size of the bone graft for the bone
defect, the maximum VBG registered 11 mm, demonstrating similar insignificant differences between the mean
values of 4.7 and 4.8 mm for VBG and NVBG, respectively.
Said patients eventually required endoscopic interventions or surgical treatments after the natural formation of
spontaneous shunts. The incidence of hemorrhages was markedly reduced after treatment, and improvements in
the venous aneurysm were observed as well. These results agree with previous findings [Alvarez, 1983; Lam, 1981]
that hemorrhages from venous aneurysms are not attenuated even when natural spontaneous shunts are formed.
Cu contributes to tensile intensity. However, when the treatment quantity is excessively added, the melting point
lowers, yielding the problem of poor corrosion resistance. As the merits can be established with additions of less
than 1%, Cu is often added in Al alloys for tensile strength enhancement in heat exchangers.
With respect to the perspectives of fluid balance and electrolyte/acid-base equilibria in EII<24-wk), isolated and
specific pathological states were induced by the immaturity compared with EII(>24-wk). In the postnatal period
especially within the early-stage of 1 wk, proper monitoring of said events would provide concrete clinical reference
for reliable prediction and useful management of various abnormalities in EII<24-wk) encountered in the present
Original article Improving the range of contraceptive choices in rural Ethiopia Mengistu Asnake1, Lakachew Walie2, Yilma Melkamu3 Abstract Background: Despite the reality of a high unmet need, the utilization of family planning services in Ethiopia could be described as very low. Besides this, the knowledge and practice of family planning is limited merely to the usage of shorter-
The Review of Diabetic Studies Cardiovascular Disease, Lipids, and Diabetes Herewith, I cordially invite you participating in the Special Issue Project for The Review of Diabetic Studies (http://www.the-rds.org) on Cardiovascular Disease, Lipids, and Diabetes . There are many controversies and unanswered questions relating to the care of diabetic patients with dyslipidemia.
