Australian Streptokinase trial in stroke. A trial that asked if streptokinase administered within four hours of acute ischaemic stroke alters subsequent morbidity and mortality (M&M).

Early results of the trial showed a trend towards increased M&M with streptokinase, especially if treated after three hours. The trial was halted by its sponsor.

An acronym for the most critical characteristics of medical competence: attitude, skills, knowledge.

Q. is the one first question i asked here a lame one? it's just that it's been 15 days. i think i put some real effort in confronting myself so as to benefit, not waste anyones or my time. i don't know i figured more feedback would be offered. hey if it's kind of a i don't know hopeless question maybe any answer, really any answer at all would be appreciated? thanks...

A. Thank you!

Q. I am wondering if any of you are ENTHUSED about the use of COCONUT OIL. I ask because it IS SATURATED FAT. I have trouble losing weight. That inculdes getting cold frequently, and was wondering if cocounut oil would help me maintain body temperture more easily. Also, I have notice that SOME claim that coconut oil has many health benefits not affiliated with polyunsaturates.

A. i know there was a Polynesian research about people that consume coconut oil on a daily basis in parallel to people who don't. they found out that there are high cholesterol levels among the people that consumed coconut oil but no significant difference in heart problems.

Q. Im 29 and i want to have a baby,but im scared to ask my doctor if i can because i dont want to know the answer

A. if u don't ask you will never know,have faith!

Under the search hypothesis, higher ask prices should deter offers, and this effect should be stronger in thinner markets.
To measure the effect of the ask price, we also include the log-difference between the ask price and the independent assessment of the computer's value as a right-hand-side variable: (28)
The coefficient on the ask price is close to zero and is not statistically significant for the high-strength subsample.
The most straightforward approach to estimating this relationship is to include the ask price in a standard hedonic regression.
In the base specification, we measure the independent effect of the ask price on offers by including the difference between the ask price and the computer's value (the "spread") as an explanatory variable.
The magnitude of the coefficient for the low-strength subsample suggests that for each dollar that the ask price exceeds the estimate of the computer's value, the highest offer for that computer is higher by 36 cents.
The coefficient on the interaction term also suggests that the impact of the ask price varies depending on market strength.
In this section we assess the effect of the ask price on time to sale.
The right-hand-side variable of interest is the log-difference between the ask price and the computer's value.
The coefficient on the log-difference between the ask price and the computer's value is significant in the specification without the interaction term.
