Blastokinin or uteroglobin (UG) is a steroid-inducible, evolutionarily conserved, multifunctional protein secreted by the mucosal epithelia of virtually all mammals. It is present in the blood and in other body fluids including urine. An antigen immunoreactive to UG antibody is also detectable in the mucosal epithelia of all vertebrates. UG-binding proteins(More)
The sex chromosomal constitution has been determined in various types of human leukocytes at interphase by use of fluorescence in situ hybridization with X- and/or Y-specific DNA probes. It is found that during aging and differentiation of myelocytes into polymorphs there is no significant change in the relative frequency of various types of male and female(More)
OBJECTIVE Earlier diagnosis and treatment of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in preterm infants, before clinical deterioration, might improve outcomes. A monitor that measures abnormal heart rate characteristics (HRC) of decreased variability and transient decelerations was developed as an early warning system for sepsis.

A unique cas of dermal calcification occurred in a 14-month-old femal infant. Results of all pertinent laboratory data obtained on this patient were within normal limits except for an elevation of the heat labile fraction of alkaline phosphatase. A skin biopsy specimen showed irregularly shaped deposits of calcified osteoid with osteoblasts. As yet, neither(More)
