    Title Diagnostic Pathways and Delays on Route to Operative Intervention in Acute Appendicitis.
    Date December 2004
    Journal The American Surgeon

    The purpose of this study was to determine the elements associated with delay in the evaluation of acute appendicitis at a community teaching hospital. We performed a retrospective chart review of patients undergoing operative exploration for presumed appendicitis in a 12-month period. Cases were categorized by the presence or absence of advanced radiographic imaging. Demographic information and time intervals from triage to operative incision were compared. One hundred twenty-four patients underwent operative exploration for presumed appendicitis. Forty-one patients had no advanced imaging, 67 had a CT scan, 8 had a sonogram, and 8 had both CT/sonogram. Patients using advanced radiographic imaging prior to operative exploration were no less likely to have a normal appendix at surgery. Diagnostic imaging significantly increased the preoperative emergency department length of stay. Two-thirds of patients with presumed acute appendicitis were imaged before operative exploration. The use of abdominal CT and sonogram resulted in significantly increased preoperative emergency department length of stay with no apparent improvement in diagnostic accuracy.

    Title Crystallization and Preliminary X-ray Diffraction Studies of a Toxic Crystal Protein from a Subspecies of Bacillus Thuringiensis.
    Date September 1988
    Journal The Journal of Biological Chemistry

    The toxic crystal protein (Mr 64,000) from a subspecies of the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis has been solubilized and recrystallized yielding diffraction quality crystals. Crystals are obtained by a change in pH and ionic strength using Na2CO3. They can also be obtained by a change in ionic strength only using NaBr as the precipitant. The space group of both forms is C222(1) with a = 133, b = 116, c = 104 A and one molecule/asymmetric unit. Still photographs show reflections to 3.0-A resolution.
