    Title Current Trend in Ivermectin Usage for Scabies.
    Date August 2003
    Journal Journal of Drugs in Dermatology : Jdd
    Excerpt

    Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic agent widely used for onchocerciasis in humans, is emerging as an oral antiscabietic that is as safe and effective as the topical antiscabietics. In the recent reports, all groups of population responded to ivermectin in the treatment of scabies, including immunocompetent, immunocompromised, and other high-risk populations such as individuals with Down's syndrome. This report reviews the efficacy, the mechanism of action, and the safety profile of ivermectin in the treatment of scabies, particularly its utility in crusted scabies and outbreaks of scabies in institutional settings.

    Title Dalitz Plot Analysis of the Decay D(+)-->k(-)pi(+)pi(+) and Indication of a Low-mass Scalar Kpi Resonance.
    Date October 2002
    Journal Physical Review Letters
    Excerpt

    We study the Dalitz plot of the decay D(+)-->K(-)pi(+)pi(+) with a sample of 15090 events from Fermilab experiment E791. Modeling the decay amplitude as the coherent sum of known Kpi resonances and a uniform nonresonant term, we do not obtain an acceptable fit. If we allow the mass and width of the K(*)(0)(1430) to float, we obtain values consistent with those from PDG but the chi(2) per degree of freedom of the fit is still unsatisfactory. A good fit is found when we allow for the presence of an additional scalar resonance, with mass 797+/-19+/-43 MeV/c(2) and width 410+/-43+/-87 MeV/c(2). The mass and width of the K(*)(0)(1430) become 1459+/-7+/-5 MeV/c(2) and 175+/-12+/-12 MeV/c(2), respectively. Our results provide new information on the scalar sector in hadron spectroscopy.

    Title Symmetrically Distributed Orange Eruption on the Ears: a Case of Lupus Vulgaris.
    Date September 2001
    Journal Cutis; Cutaneous Medicine for the Practitioner
    Excerpt

    Although the incidence and morbidity of tuberculosis (TB) have declined in the latter half of the last decade in the United States, the number of cases of TB (especially cutaneous TB) among those born outside of the United States has increased. This discrepancy can be explained, in part, by the fact that cutaneous TB can have a long latency period in those individuals with a high degree of immunity against the organism. In this report, we describe an individual from a region where there is a relatively high prevalence of tuberculosis who developed lupus vulgaris of the ears many years after arrival to the United States.

    Title Search for Rare and Forbidden Charm Meson Decays D0 --> Vl+l- and Hhll.
    Date July 2001
    Journal Physical Review Letters
    Excerpt

    We report results of a search for flavor-changing neutral current (FCNC), lepton flavor, and lepton-number violating decays of the D0 (and its antiparticle) into three and four bodies. Using data from Fermilab charm hadroproduction experiment E791, we examine modes with two leptons (muons or electrons) and a rho(0), K( *0), or straight phi vector meson or a nonresonant pi(pi), Kpi, or KK pair of pseudoscalar mesons. No evidence for any of these decays is found. Therefore, we present branching-fraction upper limits at 90% confidence level for the 27 decay modes examined (18 new).

    Title Direct Measurement of the Pion Valence-quark Momentum Distribution, the Pion Light-cone Wave Function Squared.
    Date July 2001
    Journal Physical Review Letters
    Excerpt

    We present the first direct measurements of the pion valence-quark momentum distribution which is related to the square of the pion light-cone wave function. The measurements were carried out using data on diffractive dissociation of 500 GeV/c pi(-) into dijets from a platinum target at Fermilab experiment E791. The results show that the /q&q> light-cone asymptotic wave function describes the data well for Q2 approximately 10 (GeV/c)(2) or more. We also measured the transverse momentum distribution of the diffractive dijets.

    Title Observation of Color-transparency in Diffractive Dissociation of Pions.
    Date July 2001
    Journal Physical Review Letters
    Excerpt

    We have studied the diffractive dissociation into dijets of 500 GeV/c pions scattering coherently from carbon and platinum targets. Extrapolating to asymptotically high energies (where t(min)-->0), we find that when the per-nucleus cross section for this process is parametrized as sigma = sigma0Aalpha, alpha has values near 1.6, the exact result depending on jet transverse momentum. These values are in agreement with those predicted by theoretical calculations of color-transparency.

    Title Study of the D(+)(s)-->pi(-)pi(+)pi(+) Decay and Measurement of F(0) Masses and Widths.
    Date April 2001
    Journal Physical Review Letters
    Excerpt

    From a sample of 848+/-44 D(+)(s)-->pi(-)pi(+)pi(+) decays, we find gamma(D(+)(s)-->pi(-)pi(+)pi(+))/gamma(D(+)(s)-->straight phipi(+)) = 0.245+/-0.028(+0.019)(-0.012). Using a Dalitz plot analysis of this three body decay, we find significant contributions from the channels rho(0)(770)pi(+), rho(0)(1450)pi(+), f(0)(980)pi(+), f(2)(1270)pi(+), and f(0)(1370)pi(+). We also present the values obtained for masses and widths of the resonances f(0)(980) and f(0)(1370).

    Title Experimental Evidence for a Light and Broad Scalar Resonance in D(+) --> Pi(-)pi(+)pi(+) Decay.
    Date April 2001
    Journal Physical Review Letters
    Excerpt

    From a sample of 1172 +/- 61 D(+)-->pi(-)pi(+)pi(+) decays, we find gamma(D(+)-->pi(-)pi(+)pi(+))/gamma(D(+)-->K-pi(+)pi(+)) = 0.0311 +/- 0.0018(+0.0016)(-0.0026). Using a coherent amplitude analysis to fit the Dalitz plot of these decays, we find strong evidence that a scalar resonance of mass 478(+24)(-23) +/- 17 MeV/c(2) and width 324(+42)(-40) +/- 21 MeV/c(2) accounts for approximately half of all decays.
