280 Capecchi, Mario R.Developmental defects of the ear, cranial nerves and hindbrain resulting from targeted disruption of the mouse homeobox gene Hox-1.6.Gene targeting in mouse embryo-derived stem cells has been used to generate mice with a disruption in the homeobox gene Hox-1.6. Mice heterozygous at the Hox-1.6 locus appear normal, whereas Hox-1.6-/Hox-1.6- mice die at or shortly after birth. These homozygotes exhibit profound defects in the forma...Chromosome Mapping; Genetic Vectors; Mice, Inbred C57BL2002-06-27
281 Couldwell, William T.Diagnosis and management of Cushing diseaseThe management of a case involving Cushing disease, defined as excess secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) from a pituitary adenoma, remains one of the most vexing problems facing the pituitary surgeon.

285 Dailey, Andrew T.; Brodke, Darrel S.Differences between neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons in classifying cervical dislocation injuries and making assessment and treatment decisions: a multicenter reliability studyVariability exists in the management of cervical spinal injuries. The goal of this study was to assess the effect of training specialty (orthopedic surgery vs neurosurgery) on management of cervical dislocations.Cervical dislocation injuries; Classification; Orthopedic surgeons; Orthopaedic surgeons; Assessment decisions; Treatment decisions2008
286 Florsheim, Paul W.; Ngu, LeDifferential outcomes among adolescent fathers: understanding fatherhood as a transformative processIn response to the rising numbers of mother headed households, there is a great debate about whether to encourage young unwed parents to marry. Policies designed to pursue and/or punish fathers who do not meet their legal and financial responsibilities and to promote marriage, carte blanche, are ref...Parenting; Gender; Matrimony2003-10-18
287 Cloud, Joann L.; Hoggan, Karen; Cohen, Samuel; Brown-Elliott, Barbara A.; Mann, Linda; Wilson, Rebecca; Aldous, Wade K.; Wallace, Jr, Richard J.; Woods, Gail L.Differentiation of mycobacterium chelonae and M. abscessus using SmartCycler PCR and MGB eclipse probesThis poster discusses how the use of partial 16S rDNA sequencing (first one-third of the gene) for the identification of Mycobacterium species from cultured isolates has become recognized as a very accurate method for identification. The distinction between M. chelonae and M. abscessus, however, is ...MGB Eclipse System; SmartCycler PCR; Mycobacterium abscessus2005-09-05
288 Pounder, June I.; Voelkerding, Karl V.; Storts, D.; Anderson, Clint M.Differentiation of species within mycobacterium tuberculosis complex by real-time PCR-based genomic deletion analysisDifferentiation of members within Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) is essential for patient management and infection control. MTC is comprised of M. tuberculosis (Mtb), M. bovis (Mb), M. bovis BCG (vaccine strain; Mbcg), M. africanum (Ma), and M. microti (Mm). Because MTC have highly similar...MTC; species differentiation; Mycobacterium bovis BCG; Mycobacterium africanum; Mycobacterium microtic; PCR2006-01-09
289 Schmidt, Meic H.Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma presenting as a sacral tumorPrimary lymphomas of the sacrum are rare tumors, reported only in a few cases in the literature. The authors describe two patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphomas presenting as a sacral tumor. In the first case a 52-year-old man presented with progressive back pain, bilateral radicular pain, an...B-cell lymphoma; Sacral tumor2003
