[intratypical antigenic differentiation of poliovirus strains circulating in mali by means of cross-adsorbed sera].the intratypic antigenic differentiation of poliovirus strains isolated from sick or healthy children in mali in 1975-1976 was performed. the method is based on the use of cross-adsorbed sera in the neutralization tests in which the virus is titrated by the plaque procedure or by the cytopathic effect. all the examined strains of serologic types i, ii, and iii were distinguished by the antigenic structure from the vaccine strains and were classified as "wild". quantitative differences in the ant ...197886237
an investigation into the antigen-specificity of transfer factor in its stimulatory action on lymphocyte transformation.dialysable transfer factor (tf) was prepared from the buffy-coat cells of donors with known cell-mediated reactivity to tuberculin (ppd), streptococcal protein (sksd) and diphtheria toxoid (dt). the effect of such preparations on the transformation by these antigens of lymphocytes from tuberculin-negative donors was investigated. transformation was determined as incorporation of tritiated thymidine. the concentrations of sksd and dt were adjusted for different lymphocyte donors so as to give, in ...200086502
tissue cea in premalignant epithelial lesions and epidermoid carcinoma of the uterine cervix: prognostic significance.carcinoembryonic antigen (cea) was studied by the indirect triple-bridge immunoperoxidase method in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue specimens from 191 patients with premalignant epithelial lesions or epidermoid carcinoma of the uterine cervix treated 12 years ago. the frequency of tissue cea positivity was found to increase with advancing clinical disease in the following manner: mild dysplasia, 25%; severe dysplasia, 37%; carcinoma in situ, 60%; invasive carcinoma stage i, 60%; stage ii ...200086522
the results of prostatectomy: a symptomatic and urodynamic analysis of 152 patients.there were 152 patients with prostatism investigated by inflow cystometry and pressure flow analysis of micturition before and after elective prostatectomy. many symptoms attributed to obstruction were found to be owing to bladder instability, which was demonstrated in 60 per cent of the patients. the symptomatic improvement postoperatively was accompanied by a decrease in the incidence of instability to 25 per cent. the repeat urodynamic studies and symptom analysis demonstrated a surgical succ ...200086617
progression of diabetic nephropathy.although deterioration of renal function in diabetic nephropathy varies considerably from one diabetic to another, its rate is constant in individuals. for each patient there is a linear relation between period (months) which elapses from the time serum creatinine becomes greater than 200 mumol/l and the inverse the inverse of the serum-creatinine. the observation is of practical importance in predicting the time at which end-stage renal failure will develop, so that treatment can be planned in ...200086831

igd myeloma protein with "unreactive" light chain determinants.serum from a patient with multiple myeloma showed a monoclonal protein, classified by immunoelectrophoresis as igd. immunofixation electrophoresis and immunoelectrophoresis failed to demonstrate a precipitation reaction between the paraprotein and antisera to immunoglobulin light chains. the light chains of the monoclonal protein, immunologically inaccessible in the intact molecule, reacted with anti-lambda chain antisera only after reduction and alkylation of the paraprotein. moreover, interpre ...200188283
prostaglandin e1-induced latent epileptogenic foci.suprafusion of 125 microliter 6% kcl solution over the visual cortex of rabbits 2-24 h after they suffered a prostaglandin (pg) e1-induced epileptic seizure was found to cause a recurrence of seizure activity. the initial seizure was induced by the cortical suprafusion of pge1 over the left visual cortex of pg transport inhibitor-pretreated rabbits. control animals that were not pretreated with pg transport inhibitors (bromcresol green or probenecid), or received suprafusion of saline or pgf2 al ...197988324
effects of h-reflex conditioning upon the contralateral alpha motoneuron pool.h-reflex recovery curves have been elicited by subliminal conditioning stimuli applied to the ipsilateral and contralateral posterior tibial nerves in 10 healthy female subjects. in both types of recovery curve there was clear evidence of a period of facilitation in the ipsilateral soleus motoneuron pool 75-250 msec after the conditioning stimulus. these results indicate the bilateral nature of the facilitation and show it to be most probably produced by stimulus-evoked inputs as opposed to twit ...200188332
extramedullary haematopoiesis in thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.extramedullary hematopoiesis was detected in routine sections of spleen and liver from two patients with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (ttp). in patients with other types of hemolytic anemia and in normal persons, extramedullary hematopoiesis was not found in spleen or liver. the results of this study raise the possibility that ttp may fit within the myeloproliferative category, perhaps representing an acute variant of di-guglielmo syndrome.200188388
electroimmunoassay of factor ix in patients with liver damage and vitamin k unresponsive coagulation disorder.factor ix antigen and activity were assayed in a group of patients with liver disease and in a group of patients in coumarin therapy. in patients with liver disease there was a similar decrease in activity and antigen. on the other hand factor ix activity is decreased in coumarin treatment with factor ix antigen remaining normal. factor ix electrophoretic mobility in liver disease is normal.200188391

mechanism of binding of mouse interferon to controlled pore glass.many proteins bind to controlled pore glass; they are either acid elutable or alkali elutable. mouse interferon is an acid-elutable protein. since poly(l-lysine) and, to some extent, poly(l-arginine) are also eluted from controlled pore glass under acidic conditions, one may postulate that mouse interferon binds to controlled pore glass via some of the protein's epsilon-amino groups (of lysine) and/or guanidinium groups (of arginine) and the beads' silanol (hydroxyl groups). the necessity of lys ...197994835
analysis of anti-sperm sera for t/t locus-specific objective antiglobulin radioimmunoassay for the analysis of anti-spermatozoa antisera has been used to characterize more than 30 alloantisera. each of these antisera was raised against spermatozoa from mice carrying t/t regin mutations. whilst all of the antisera had considerable activity for mouse spermatozoa, none of them was found to contain antibodies specific for t/t region gene products. a detailed analysis of a single serum revealed that its activity is for antigens which are non-polym ...197995255

regulation of the rate of beta-galactosidase synthese by the bgs and bgt loci in the mouse.we have developed an assay for the in vivo rate of beta-galactosidase synthesis in mouse tissues to assess the mechanism by which the bgs and bgt loci regulate activity levels of this enzyme. genetically determined differences in liver and kidney beta-galactosidase content reflect equivalent differences in specific rates of enzyme synthesis. we conclude that bgs and bgt regulate beta-galactosidase activity by controlling the rate of synthesis of the beta-galactosidase molecule.197897289
