identification of gallbladder typhoid carriers by a string device.the efficiency of a gelatin capsule containing a nylon string for collection of duodenal specimens was investigated in carriers of salmonella typhosa (typhi). cultures of duodenal specimens obtained by means of the string capsule were compared with cultures of duodenal specimens obtained by a conventional duodenal tube and with stool cultures duodenal contents obtained with either the string or tube were more often positive for s. typhosa than were stool cultures. the string, which is as efficie ...197986040
immunogenetics of the mcb1 macroglobulin allotype in cattle.the paper describes a cattle serum antigen (mcb1) which is controlled by a dominant gene (mcb1), independent from those controlling the two macroglobulin markers mca1 and mca2 as well as from that controlling the low-density lipoprotein marker ld1a1. mcb1 is located on a high-molecular-weight serum protein which, very likely, is an alpha2-macroglobulin.197986518
[phospholipids and blood coagulation].after a simplified survey of the chemistry of phospholipids (pl) their presence in the lipid part of thromboplastin is dealt with, the significance of this structure being stressed. in addition, the condition, mode of action and synthesis of pl in blood platelets are extensively discussed and the impact of the composition of thrombocytic pl in the membrane and granular fraction by plasma lipid substances is referred to. the relations between single forms of pl and those proteins activating coagu ...197989981
erythromycin and lymecycline treatment in chlamydia-positive and chlamydia-negative non-gonococcal urethritis--a partner-controlled study.a group of 213 men with non-gonococcal urethritis and their sexual partners were treated either with erythromycin stearate 500 mgx2 for 15 days or with lymecycline 300 mgx2 for 10 or 20 days. chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from 40% of the men, from 26% of their female partners and from 56% of the partners of men with chlamydia-positive urethritis. one hundred and eighty-one men were available for evaluation of therapy. there were no significant differences between the treatment schedules. th ...197987096
involvement of host fc receptors in antibody-mediated cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity reactions.cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity (cbh) reactions are heterogeneous delayed time course basophil-rich responses that can be mediated by either t cells, b cells, or serum antibodies. the current study examined the mechanism by which antibodies mediate cbh in guinea pigs. fc competition experiments were constructed by passively transferring mixtures of anti-klh serum and normal heterologous gamma-globulins. it was found that rabbit igg and its isolated and purified fc fragment [but not the (fab' ...197990094
histological and histochemical changes of the skeletal muscle in human chronic chagas' disease.gastrocnemius muscle biopsies were performed in 7 subjects with chronic chagas' disease. on clinical and laboratory grounds the selected patients were judged to be healthy, being the only abnormality found the presence of positive serum tests for chagas' disease. fibre type grouping of either type i or type ii was observed in 5 of the 7 patients. furthermore, in 2 of the 5 patients showing muscle fibre groupings, angular fibres reacting with nadh and non-specific sterase were also found. these o ...197887186

the intra-nucleolar localization of amplified rdna in xenopus laevis oocytes.a fluorescent feulgen-stain was adapted in order to demonstrate dna-containing structures inside the amplified nucleoli of xenopus laevis. at all stages of oogenesis this method reveals granules or complex structures of dna in each nucleolus. the micronucleoli which do not stain with this method and which do not reveal an internal structure in low molarity saline, unlike real nucleoli are considered as nucleolus-like bodies. the dna-containing structures in the nucleoli can be composed of one or ...197990588

mechanisms of mouse mast cell activation and inactivation for ige-mediated histamine release.the ige-mediated histamine release from mouse mast cells requires ca++, is optimal at 37 degrees c, and is enhanced by phosphatidylserine. the rate of release is relatively slow. the mast cells can be activated to release histamine by either anti-ige or anti-fab antibodies and, in the case of cells from sensitized mice, by the immunizing antigen. the incubation of mast cells with antigen in the absence of ca++ or phosphatidylserine fails to release histamine. such cells are desensitized to the f ...197987441

procaine-induced seizures in epileptic monkeys with bilateral hippocampal foci.intravenous procaine hcl given at low doses (0.5-2.5 mg/kg) to two monkeys with bilateral alumina hippocampal foci depressed interictal spiking or had little effect. at 5.0 mg/kg unilateral limbic activation occurred. at 10.0 mg/kg unilateral or bilateral limbic activation and generalized seizures could be evoked within 3-10 min. at higher doses (15 and 20 mg/kg) bilateral limbic activation or brief (one min) generalized seizures occurred. the unilateral-onset psychomotor seizures were not ident ...197991502
spontaneous histamine secretion from leukocytes in the presence of strontium.basophil leukocytes from human blood secrete histamine in the absence of a membrane stimulus when incubated in a medium containing sr++, 1 to 10 mm. spontaneous histamine secretion in the presence of sr++ is inhibited by la+++, 1 to 1000 nm and 2 deoxy-d-glucose, 30 to 300 microm. spontaneous secretion in the presence of sr++ increases with increasing ph in the range 6.5 to 8.5. agents which cause a rise of intracellular cyclic amp level increase the spontaneous secretion in 194th presence of sr ...197987513
