Three types of presumed sensory endings were distinguished by scanning electron microscopy: a ciliated type, a domed type, and a pit. The ciliated and domed type were also serially sectioned for transmission electron microscopy. Six of the pit type were observed, a group of 3 on each side of the oral sucker. The ciliated type were found only among the(More)
Many hypotheses have been proposed to explain the alteration of maternal immune status that allows the fetus to escape rejection. Published data using monoclonal antibodies have stated that there are small variable reductions in circulating T-lymphocytes and little or no change in helper-to-suppressor ratios. Specific decreased levels of helper T-cells have(More)
Chronic alcoholics are more susceptible to infection and have increased incidences of certain types of carcinomas. One explanation for this may be suppressed immune responses secondary to ethyl alcohol consumption. This project was initiated to study the effect of ethyl alcohol on lymphocyte responses in vitro by monitoring tritiated thymidine uptake.(More)
An association has been observed in several independent data sets between late onset Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and the APOE locus on chromosome 19. We have examined the genotype in family history positive (FHP) and family history negative (FHN) cases and find a distortion of the APOE allele frequencies in accord with previous studies. However, when we(More)
Undialyzed conditioned medium from several cell culture sources did not stimulate thymidine incorporation or cell overgrowth in quiescent, density-inhibited mouse embryo fibroblast cells. However, dialyzed conditioned medium (DCM) from clonal mouse mammary cell lines MCG-V14, MCG-T14, MCG-T10; HeLa cells; primary mouse adenocarcinoma cells; and BALB/c(More)
he capability to develop prototype hardware systems is improving steadily as computer technology is dramatically enhancing design, fabrication processes, and tools. Designers now make extensive use of sophisticated 3D solid modeling programs to visualize design concepts, perform engineering analysis, and communicate detailed design data through networked(More)
The time interval between administering the serum and the virus was found to influence the results of the in vivo mouse protection test for foot-and-mouth disease antibodies. In particular, for both IgG and IgM antibodies to strain A12 virus, the mouse protection index increased from zero to a maximum at about 6 h and remained high for at least five days.(More)
