We have known Dr. Mario Baras since 2001 and have collaborated with him
on several studies.
He has been a coauthor on two papers with us: (1) Nesher G, Berkun Y, Mates M, Baras M,
Rubinow A, Sonnenblick M: Low-dose aspirin and prevention of cranial ischemic
complications in giant cell arteritis. Arthritis Rheum, 2004, 50:1332-1337, and (2)
Nesher G, Berkun Y, Mates M, Baras M, Nesher R, Rubinow A, Sonnenblick M: Risk factors
for cranial ischemic complications in giant cell arteritis. Medicine, 2004, 83:114-122.
Dr Baras has also been responsible for the statistical analysis of two other papers,
both presented in international meetings and submitted for publication, and is currently
involved in another study.
Dr. Baras is efficient and punctuate. We benefited from his good advice upon planning a
study, and his professionalism and wisdom during analysis of the data. Aside from being
a professional he is a very nice person. He has always been there for us, to answer our
questions even in odd times of the day. It has always been a pleasure to collaborate
