Dengue virus (DENV) is considered to be the most important arthropod-borne viral disease and causes more than 100 million human infections annually. To further characterize primary DENV infection in vivo, rhesus macaques were infected with DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3, or DENV-4 and clinical parameters, as well as specificity and longevity of serologic responses, were assessed. Overt clinical symptoms were not present after infection.

In this prospective study, 20 patients undergoing mean duration (2-3 h) neurosurgical operations on fossa cranii posterior, and cervical and dorsolumbar rachis, were induced with 0.3 mg/kg etomidate bolus dose. To maintain anesthesia, etomidate perfusions at 10 micrograms/kg/min (group I) and 20 microg/kg/min (group II) were administered. Fentanyl at fractionated doses was used as analgesic without association to nitrous oxide and relaxation was achieved with pancuronium bromide.

OBJECTIVES: We previously reported pain intensity as the primary outcome of Four-Agents-Decoction (Si Wu Tang) for treating primary dysmenorrhea. We further explored other effects of this formula in accordance with the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine on anemia-related hemogram parameters for "nourishing blood" and uterine artery pulsatility index (PI) for "blood stagnation." DESIGN: Data were assessed for post-hoc analysis from 76 young women from the Taipei metropolitan area of Taiwan who participated in the randomized double-blind clinical trial.
