There has been an increasing focus in recent years on theoretical frameworks to describe cognitive development of statistical concepts. There is now a need to encourage the use of these frameworks to inform practice in the teaching and learning of statistics. This paper focuses on frameworks that describe the levels of cognitive development of the concept(More)
A novel beta-lactamase inhibitor has been isolated from Streptomyces clavuligerus ATCC 27064 and given the name clavulanic acid. Conditions for the cultivation of the organism and detection and isolation of clavulanic acid are described. This compound resembles the nucleus of a penicillin but differs in having no acylamino side chain, having oxygen instead(More)
Variant sublines of the murine lymphosarcoma RAW117 have been derived by sequential cycles of intravenous inoculation of cells and harvesting of solid liver tumors in syngeneic BALB/c mice [Brunson K. W. & Nicolson, G. L. (1978) J. Natl. Cancer Inst. 61, 1499-1503] and also by sequential removal of lectin-reactive cells via repeated adsorption on(More)
Streptomyces clavuligerus produces penicillin N, several cephalosporins and the beta-lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid. The detection, isolation and properties of further metabolites of this culture, MM 21801 and MM 19290, are described. MM 21801 was identified as the antibiotic holomycin. MM 19290 was shown to be related to tunicamycin, an antibiotic(More)
Immunophenotypes for 272 patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) were analyzed using a panel of 22 antibodies. Numerical evidence for unusual coexpressions (present in normal marrow at < or = 0.1%) of surface markers on > or = 10% of the blast cells was found in 85% of all cases. Asynchronous expression of myeloid differentiation antigens occurred in(More)
Augmentin is a new antibacterial formulation comprised of amoxicillin and the beta-lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid. In the present paper, the use of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to provide a rapid assay of the components of Augmentin in body fluids is described. Clavulanic acid was assayed by reacting the sample with imidazole, which(More)
PURPOSE This study was undertaken to evaluate the feasibility and therapeutic effect of high-dose chemoradiotherapy with autologous or allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) in patients with advanced chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who relapse after fludarabine treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-two patients with advanced CLL received(More)
