The dopaminergic system, and in particular the dopamine D2 receptor, has been implicated in reward mechanisms in the brain. Dysfunction of the D2 dopamine receptors leads to aberrant substance-seeking behaviors (ethanol, drugs, tobacco, and food) and other related behaviors (pathological gambling, Tourette's disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity(More)
Forty-two patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) were studied for immunoglobulin gene and T-cell receptor gene rearrangements. Immunoglobulin heavy chain gene rearrangements were demonstrable in 41 cases. One rearrangement of the T-cell receptor beta chain gene was detected. Quantification of the relative intensities of germline and rearranged DNA(More)
Between October 1982 and June 1983, 43 patients were identified with symptomatic lead poisoning in three Arab villages of the Nablus district. Because of the clustering of clinical poisoning by household units, investigation was focussed on potential sources common to all members of the households. After excluding water, olive oil and a variety of(More)
Multimarker studies were conducted on 195 lymph node, 59 bone marrow, 44 peripheral blood, eight body fluid, and eight internal organ specimens. The markers were identified by fluorochrome-labeled antibodies quantified with flow cytometry. T-cell receptor gene rearrangements were used for the determination of T-cell clonality. These studies confirmed that(More)

The analysis of restriction fragment length polymorphisms in forensic DNA samples can be used to determine whether any two or more samples have the same biological origin. However, sometimes DNA recovered from evidentiary material, such as blood or semen stains, migrates at a different rate than an exemplar sample. This difference in migration, while(More)
The GenPlex™ HID System (Applied Biosystems - AB) offers typing of 48 of the 52 SNPforID SNPs and amelogenin. Previous studies have shown a high reproducibility of the GenPlex™ HID System using 250-500pg DNA of good quality. An international exercise was performed by 14 laboratories (9 in Europe and 5 in the US) in order to test the robustness and(More)
Routine monitoring of Strontium-90 and Cesium-137 levels in the main classes of food consumed in Israel has been carried out for a number of years. Calculations have been made of the intake of these isotopes by various groups in the Israel population using Food Consumption Survey data made available by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics.
