Non-BCG-vaccinated preschool children (4 or 5 years of age) were simultaneously tested on separate arms with a 2 IU PPD RT23 and 0.1 microgram Mycobacterium avium sensitin RS10 or 0.1 microgram Mycobacterium scrofulaceum sensitin RS95. None of the 762 children had any known exposure to tuberculosis. A total of 8.8% reacted with an induration (greater than(More)
SETTING Since 1986 we have tested approximately 7000 non-BCG-vaccinated Swedish children with tuberculin and with Mycobacterium avium or M. scrofulaceum sensitin. In Göteborg, an urban coastal area, 25% of 8-9-year-old school children reacted to M. avium sensitin and 32% of M. scrofulaceum sensitin using a 6 mm cut-off. OBJECTIVE To evaluate if(More)
We studied 3592 Swedish schoolchildren, 8 or 9 years old, examined for palpable submandibular, cervical and supraclavicular lymph nodes. All children were skin tested with 2 TU PPD RT23 and with 0.1 microgram of Mycobacterium avium sensitin or 0.1 microgram of M. scrofulaceum sensitin. A total of 991 children had palpable lymph nodes in any of the three(More)
The mycolic acids of 15 cultures of representative Mycobacterium bovis BCG substrains were examined by alkaline hydrolysis followed by esterification and thin-layer chromatography of the resulting methyl esters. Representatives of the Moreau and Swedish substrains had mycolic acid patterns similar to M. bovis, composed of alpha-mycolates, methoxymycolates(More)
Drug screening of breast milk in a clinical toxicology laboratory is reported. Findings from three cases include cocaine, ethylbenzoylecgonine (cocaethylene), ethanol, oxycodone, codeine, and nicotine. We believe this to be the first report of ethylbenzoylecgonine in human breast milk. One other specimen submitted for analysis was screened with negative(More)
BCG-vaccinated schoolchildren, 8-9 yrs of age, were simultaneously tested on separate arms with tuberculin and a sensitin. Using the 6 mm cut-off they reacted in 49% to two tuberculin units purified protein derivative (PPD RT23), in 67% to 0.1 micrograms Mycobacterium avium sensitin RS10, and in 58% to 0.1 micrograms M. scrofulaceum sensitin RS95. The(More)
Non-BCG-vaccinated schoolchildren (8 or 9 years of age) were simultaneously tested on separate arms with 2 IU PPD RT23 and 0.1 microgram Mycobacterium avium sensitin RS10 or 0.1 microgram Mycobacterium scrofulaceum sensitin RS95. None of the 2819 analysed children had any known exposure to tuberculosis. A total of 3.4% reacted with an induration greater(More)
