Chronic graft-vs.-host disease occurs in 30%-50% of long-term survivors of allogeneic bone marrow grafts, and may eventuate in cirrhosis. In this study, a young woman, originally diagnosed as having acute myelogenous leukemia, underwent successful bone marrow transplantation but later developed graft-vs.-host disease-induced cirrhosis and recurrent variceal(More)
Using a high-sensitivity immunofluorescence procedure, a proportion of blood lymphocytes can be shown to express the p55 chain of the IL-2 receptor (CD25, TAC) without in vitro stimulation. In this study, we measured the proportion of peripheral blood lymphocytes expressing CD25 in patients with a diagnosis of HIV infection and compared the results with(More)
Belgrade rats inherit microcytic, hypochromic anemia as an autosomal recessive trait (gene symbol b). Erythrocytes and tissue are iron deficient in the face of elevated TIBC (total iron binding capacity) and percent iron saturation; iron injections increased the number of erythrocytes but their appearance remained abnormal. We have investigated iron(More)
Hepatocyte phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (4,5-P2), phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (4-P), and phosphatidylinositol were labeled with 3H when rats were injected intraperitoneally with 200 microCi of [2-3H] myo-inositol 18 h previously. Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-P2 and phosphatidylinositol 4-P accounted for 0.84 +/- 0.06 and 7.48 +/- 0.36%,(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies report the minimum inhibitory concentrations for antimicrobials against equine Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis isolates. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES To evaluate trends in the in vitro activities of 20 antimicrobials against equine Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis isolates from 1996 to 2012 and to determine if a relationship exists(More)
Occasional complications and even death in subjects with sickle cell trait have been attributed to severe physical exertion. However, the extent to which sickling actually occurs during exercise has not been reported. This study examined the red blood cell morphological features immediately following near maximal upright graded bicycle exercise in five(More)
A 400-kg 5-year-old Arabian gelding was presented for a 2-to 3-year history of progressive uncontrollable violent headshaking that precluded any type of physical activity and compromised quality of life. Although there were no triggering events for the observed behavior, headshaking was exacerbated when a bridle was placed on the horse's head. One year(More)
