Di-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) was administered to 3- to 5-day-old male Sprague-Dawley rats by daily intravenous injections of 60, 300, or 600 mg/kg/day or by daily oral gavage of 300 or 600 mg/kg/day for 21 days. Histopathological evaluation and organ weight measurements were performed on some animals after 21 days of dosing (primary group) and later on(More)
After staining with acridine orange (AO), the nuclei of unfixed cells from the human female genital tract exhibited the same fluorescence behavior previously observed for human and murine leukocytes and mouse ascites tumor cells. With staining conditions chosen to assure saturation of the green-fluorescing AO-nucleic acid complex in normal cells, corrected(More)
Fluorescence spectra were obtained from cells from sputum and pleural effusions stained with different fluorescent dyes and fixed by alternate methods. The spectra were referenced to a standard allowing for fluorescence comparisons of unstained and stained cells under various conditions. The metachromasia of acridine orange-stained cells offers(More)
A system for screening cervical cytological preparations is described which employs the Leitz Texture Analyzer System (E. Leitz, Rockleigh, N. J.) quantitative staining with acridine orange, and a fluorescence standard. The instrumentation scans cells on microscope slides and detects objects which it interprets to be nuclei with excess total nuclear green(More)
Results of intravesical CDDP or CDDP combined with external beam radiation are compared in a group of 13 patients with low-stage bladder cancer. Six patients with low-stage bladder cancer received 4 or 12 treatments of CDDP intravesically with an initial complete response in 3 patients. Within six months, recurrent disease developed in 2 of 3 patients.(More)
