Depression and immunity: The biochemical interrelationship between the central nervous system and the immune system
Numerous publications suggest a correlation between impaired affective states and immune function (Maes et al 1991 ; McDaniel 1992). Nevertheless, the biochemical mechanisms that link mental states… Expand

A rabbit model for evaluation of spinal anesthesia is presented. Chronic cannulation of the subarachnoid space was performed in 44 rabbits using the translumbar approach. An autopsy was performed 24… Expand
Enhancement of DNA synthesis and cAMP content of mouse thymocytes by mediator(s) derived from adherent cells.
Supernatants of adherent mouse peritoneal exudate cells or human mononuclear cells were used as the source of lymphocyte activation factor (LAF). LAF was found to potentiate the effect of mitogens… Expand
An approach for high sensitivity detection of prostate cancer by analysis of changes in structuredness of the cytoplasmic matrix of lymphocytes specifically induced by PSA-ACT.
PURPOSE An alternative procedure for detection of prostate cancer was examined based on the observation that cells reexposed in vitro to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation will change their… Expand
Abraham Isaac Kook : The lights of penitence, The moral principles, Lights of holiness, essays, letters, and poems
The chief Rabbi of Palestine prior to the establishment of the state of Israel, Kook (1865-1935) represents the renewal of the Jewish mystical tradition in modern times.
HORMONE-LIKE ACTIVITY OF A THYMUS HUMORAL FACTOR ON THE INDUCTION OF IMMUNE COMPETENCE IN LYMPHOID CELLS
Experiments reported here were performed to understand the mechanism by which THF increases the immunocompetence of spleen cells from NTx mice. Dibutyryl cAMP or substances which increase… Expand

Abstract A procedure for isolation and characterization of the active principle of calf thymus is described. It consists of homogenization, ultracentrifugation and dialysis of the material. The… Expand

A humoral factor isolated from the thymus of mice or calves (THF) has been shown to restore the ability of mouse spleen cells from neonatally thymectomized (NTx) mice to react in an in vitro… Expand
The control exerted by thymic hormone (THF) on cellular cAMP levels and immune reactivity of spleen cells in the MLC assay.
We have shown previously that THF induces immunocompetence in lymphoid cells through the control of cellular cAMP levels and DNA synthesis. By the use of a one-way MLC assay it was now shown that the… Expand
The dissociation in vitro of the α- and β-lipoprotein components of human and rat very low density lipoproteins
Heparin precipitates of human and rat serum lipoproteins, dissolved, dialyzed, and analyzed by paper electrophoresis, were found to migrate as β-lipoproteins. The pre-β-lipoproteins disappeared.… Expand
