CRF stimulates the synthesis and secretion of proopiomelanocortin-derived peptides from AtT-20 mouse pituitary tumor cells. This study has shown that there is a specific binding site for CRF located on the plasma membrane of these cells. Both [125I]iodo-Tyr0CRF and noniodinated CRF (10(-11)-10(-7) M) stimulated, in a dose-dependent manner, the secretion of(More)
BACKGROUND Tumors arising in the upper aerodigestive tract (UAT) are often associated with predisposing factors that place the patient at risk for development of multiple synchronous or metachronous tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate p53 as a susceptibility gene in UAT malignancy. METHODS Seventeen patients with 41 separate primary tumors(More)
Organ allograft recipients have a propensity to develop Epstein-Barr virus-associated posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLDs). This is especially true of lung allograft recipients, who have an unusually high incidence of 8% and a predilection for developing PTLD in the allograft. Distinction of PTLD from acute cellular rejection by(More)
Early graft dysfunction in lung transplantation has many causes, most commonly preservation injury. This report details a more unusual cause of graft failure and respiratory decompensation in the early postoperative period donor cerebral emboli occluding segments of the pulmonary arterial tree in the implanted lung allografts of two patients who had(More)
Hormones are extracted from plasma with varying efficiency. Thus, markers or internal standards are often needed, to monitor and correct for extraction losses. To do so is difficult in the case of peptide hormones because radioactive recovery markers either have a low specific activity or, if labeled with iodine, may not be fully representative because of(More)
Three cases of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) detected in serous fluids are reported. Two cases were detected in ascitic fluid and one case was identified in pleural fluid of a patient with widespread disease. The cytopathologic findings correlated well with the histologic type in each case. One case each of moderately differentiated, poorly differentiated,(More)
