On 24 February 1995, six U.S. soldiers serving with the Multinational Force in Haiti became ill after eating a locally caught fish identified as the greater amberjack Seriola dumerili. The victims presented with nausea, vomiting, watery diarrhea and abdominal cramps 5-8 hr after consumption. Also present in some victims were numbness in the extremities or(More)
Photon emissions were measured at ambient temperature (21°C) in complete darkness once per min from cultures of 10(6) cells during the 12 h following removal from 37°C. The energy of emission was about 10(-20) J/s/cell. Of 8 different cell lines, B16-BL6 (mouse melanoma cells) demonstrated the most conspicuous emission profile. Acridine orange and ethidium(More)
Light flashes delivered to one aggregate of cells evoked increased photon emission in another aggregate of cells maintained in the dark in another room if both aggregates shared the same temporospatial configuration of changing rate, circular magnetic fields. During the presentation of the same shared circumcerebral magnetic fields increases in photon(More)
We have tested 74 teratogenic and 28 nonteratogenic agents in a recently developed in vitro teratogen assay system. The assay identifies teratogens by their ability to inhibit attachment of ascites tumor cells to plastic surfaces coated with concanavalin A. There is a qualitative agreement between in vivo animal data and in vitro activity for 81 of the 102(More)
Carcinogenesis involves a disruption in adhesion molecule expression and tissue architecture, and tumour invasion requires adhesion-dependent migration into surrounding tissues. Therefore, a variety of peptide and antibody-based reagents that block integrins, cadherins, immunoglobulin superfamily and selectin adhesion molecules have been developed to treat(More)
Irradiation of plasma membrane preparations with 254 nm light increases its apparent microviscosity with fluorescent polarimetry. Doses of 3 . 10(4) J/m2 increase the fluorescent polarization of a diphenylhexatriene probe by 10%. A similar increase is seen when whole cells are irradiated. The fate of membrane protein following irradiation was examined using(More)
PURPOSE To measure the effect of exposure to a specific spatial-temporal, hysiologically-patterned electromagnetic field presented using different geometric configurations on the growth of experimental tumours in mice. METHODS C57b male mice were inoculated subcutaneously with B16-BL6 melanoma cells in two blocks of experiments separated by six months (to(More)
Weak (1 μT) physiologically patterned magnetic fields produce changes in behavioral, physiological, and cellular activity. In the present experiments 12 temporal samples of the electroencephalographic anomaly and normal activity of a person (SLH) whose proximity reliably affected the brain activity of others were extracted from QEEG data, digitized, and(More)
Electromagnetic field (EMF) exposures affect many biological systems. The reproducibility of these effects is related to the intensity, duration, frequency, and pattern of the EMF. We have shown that exposure to a specific time-varying EMF can inhibit the growth of malignant cells. Thomas-EMF is a low-intensity, frequency-modulated (25-6 Hz) EMF pattern.(More)
Exposure to low intensity, low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) has effects on several biological systems. Spatiotemporal characteristics of these EMFs are critical. The effect of several complex EMF patterns on the proliferation of B16-BL6 mouse melanoma cells was tested. Exposure to one of these patterns, the Thomas-EMF, inhibited cell proliferation(More)
