starch as a functional component of food systems.starch and other carbohydrates of d-glucose series bind sodium ions but don't bind calcium ones. the affinity of beta-glucosides to sodium ions is much stronger than the affinity of d-glucose and of alpha-glucosides. some other interrelations between the components of starch-containing food systems are briefly discussed.20144079973

[radiosensitivity of clonogenic granulocytic macrophage cell precursors in the bone marrow and spleen of tumor-bearing mice].clonogenic granulocytic macrophagal cells-precursors (cfu-dc) of bone marrow and spleen of intact c57bl/6 mice and those inoculated subcutaneously with llc tumor cells do not substantially differ in their radiosensitivity; the concentration of cfu-dc in the spleen markedly varies as tumor grows. the values of do and extrapolation number n for cfu-dc of the bone marrow are 0.9-1.4 and 1.5-3.0 gy, and of the spleen, 0.8-1.6 and 1.0-2.6 gy, respectively.20144080992
abnormal architecture of the ventricles in hearts with an overriding aortic valve and a perimembranous ventricular septal defect ("eisenmenger vsd").among 111 hearts with so-called "isolated" ventricular septal defect, 18 specimens were found to have a subaortic perimembranous defect with an overriding aortic valve but without pulmonary stenosis. the ventricular architecture was characterized by several abnormalities. a constant finding was the wide right ventricular outflow tract. the outlet septum had its normal continuity with the septomarginal trabecula, but its parietal extension was located relatively far anteriorly. part of the aortic ...20144055151

survival guilt and the afro-american of achievement.success is not without psychological pain for many individuals, and is known to be particularly burdensome for many afro-americans. untoward responses get in the way of ongoing success and dilute their wishes/efforts to make meaningful contributions to others who are struggling to climb another rung in the "achievement ladder." health professionals must remain alert to these problems, and work toward developing and providing effective intervention services-both for guilty achievers and for those ...20133968712

[optico-structural machine analysis of the nuclear chromatin and cytoplasmic sh-groups of epitheliocytes of the oral mucosa of healthy subjects and in peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum].by means of optico-structural machine analysis, epitheliocytes of mucous membrane of the oral walls have been studied in 21 healthy persons and in 30 persons suffering from ulcerous disease of the stomach and duodenum. changes in densitometric parameters of epitheliocytic nuclei at the ulcerous disease demonstrate increasing amount of heterochromatin and, hence, increasing degree of cell differentiation. changes in contents and distribution of sh-groups in cell cytoplasm indicate that keratin is ...20133800670
primitive neuroectodermal tumors including the medulloblastoma: glial differentiation signaled by immunoreactivity for gfap is restricted to the pure desmoplastic medulloblastoma ("arachnoidal sarcoma of the cerebellum").immunoreactivity of tumor cells for glial fibrillary acidic protein (gfap) is usually regarded as sign of astrocytic histogenesis and/or differentiation. the present study aimed at a systematic evaluation of the significance of gfap-containing cells in primitive neuroectodermal tumors (pnets) with special reference to the controversial entity of desmoplastic medulloblastoma (so-called "circumscribed arachnoidal sarcoma of the cerebellum"). fifty-three pnets, including 17 pure desmoplastic medull ...20133978900

movement deficits caused by hyperexcitable stretch reflexes in spastic humans.spastic patients were instructed to make accurate, rapid ankle dorsiflexion and plantarflexion movements over different distances to a target. ankle position and surface electromyograms (emgs) from tibialis anterior (ta) and soleus (sol) muscles were recorded. in 3 of 8 spastic patients tested, dorsiflexion evoked velocity-dependent activation of the antagonist (sol) muscle which impeded the movement to the extent that the limb unintentionally reversed movement direction. we propose that this ac ...20133779370

amino acid patterns in the plasma and ascitic fluid of cirrhotic patients.amino acid levels were measured in the plasma and ascitic fluid of 13 alcoholic patients with liver cirrhosis and of 14 normal controls. the plasma aromatic amino acids of the alcoholic patients were not statistically different from those of the control subjects, whereas the levels of branched-chain amino acids were reduced (p less than 0.05). the values for the ratio of the muscle/liver metabolized amino acids (valine + isoleucine + leucine)/(phenylalanine + tyrosine + methionine) were statisti ...20133836704
radiographic findings in pulmonary hypertension from unresolved embolism.pulmonary artery hypertension with chronic pulmonary embolism is an uncommon entity that is potentially treatable with pulmonary embolectomy. although the classic radiographic features have been described, several recent investigators report a significant percentage of these patients with normal chest radiographs. in a series of 22 patients, no normal radiographs were seen. findings included cardiomegaly (86.4%) with right-sided enlargement (68.4%), right descending pulmonary artery enlargement ...20133872021

a departmental policy addressing chemical substance abuse.substance abuse is a major socioeconomic problem. however, the ready availability of potent narcotic and sedative drugs probably constitutes a unique risk for anesthesiologists. until recently, few anesthesia departments were prepared to recognize or safely manage afflicted colleagues. because we felt it important to educate our staff and residents and to have a response mechanism established prior to the advent of a substance abuse problem, a departmental committee was formed to develop a subst ...20133767040
peak oxygen uptake in arm ergometry: effects of testing protocol.the purpose of this investigation was to determine if a new proposed arm ergometer protocol was advantageous in eliciting higher peak oxygen uptake (peak vo2) when compared with two protocols currently referred to in the literature. ten male subjects were tested on three different exercise protocols; a discontinuous test (dt), a continuous test (ct) and a new proposed jump-max test (jmt). the ct began at a work rate of 33 watts (w) (40 rpm) with the power output (po) being increased 16 w every 3 ...20133697598
