GRASP (Gravitational Radiation Analysis & Simulation Package) is a public-domain software tool-kit designed for analysis and simulation of data from gravitational wave detectors. This users manual describes the use and features of this package. Note: an up-to-date version of this manual may be obtained at: http://www.ligo.caltech.edu/LIGO(More)
DURING the past decade, there has been a renewed wave of interest in tumour immunology and in particular in the search for components or functions of cancer cells not shared by their normal counterparts. One goal has been to elucidate if tumours do or do not contain "tumour-specific or associated antigens ". Most of the investigations have been effected(More)
Nineteen biochemical parameters, most of which have been individually advocated as tumour-index-substances for breast cancer, were measured in 51 patients with breast disease, 42 of whom had active breast cancer. Seven of these parameters were raised in more than half of the 17 patients of the series with overt metastases; these were serum ferritin (88%),(More)
Increased amounts of carcinoembryonic antigen (C.E.A.) or C.E.A.-like material are found in the urine of many patients with transitional cell carcinomas of the bladder, including those presumed to be at an early stage of development. It is suggested that measurement of urinary C.E.A. is of clinical diagnostic value in the detection and follow-up of(More)
A major periodate--Schiff-positive component from milk-fat-globule membrane of human breast milk has been purified by selectively extracting the membrane glycoproteins, followed by lectin affinity chromatography and gel filtration on Sephadex G-200 in the presence of protein-dissociating agents. The purified glycoprotein, termed epithelial membrane(More)
Our studies have confirmed that raised plasma levels of carcinoembryonic antigen (C.E.A.) occur with many but not all malignant tumours, particularly those of the gastrointestinal tract, breast, and bronchus. However, the incidence of raised values may reach 30% in diseases associated with inflammation or regeneration or both. Consequently, it cannot serve(More)
