Fate of Insulin-Like Growth Factors I and II Administered Orogastrically to Suckling Rats
TLDR
It is suggested that milk-borne IGFs are stable in the neonatal gastrointestinal tract and remain biologically active for as long as 30 min postingestion.
Human tumour-associated NK cells secrete increased amounts of interferon-gamma and interleukin-4.
TLDR
Comparing the secretion of two important immunomodulatory cytokines by individual, immunophenotyped NK cells freshly isolated from either malignant tumour biopsies, or peripheral blood samples from patients with ductal invasive breast cancer indicates that NK cells isolated directly from the tumour site secrete more IFN-gamma and IL-4 than NK cells from the blood of the same patients.
Adynamic ileus in the rat induced by chloral hydrate.
TLDR
It was concluded that the condition described was not an infectious disease but was an abnormal physiologic condition produced by the irritating or pharmacologic action of chloral hydrate given at high concentrations in the abdominal cavity.
Cytokine Release by Single, Immunophenotyped Human Cells: Use of the Reverse Hemolytic Plaque Assay
TLDR
Over the past few years, numerous studies have focused on the role of cytokines in physiological and pathological processes, and this has fuelled speculation concerning the interpretation of data obtained using conventional methods to analyze cytokine production.
Cluster of Cases of Mycobacterium chelonae Bacteraemia
TLDR
The isolation of Mycobacterium chelonae from the blood of four immunosuppressed patients over a period of 10 weeks was successful with no recurrence of symptoms after 12 months of follow-up.
Luminal stability of insulin-like growth factors I and II in developing rat gastrointestinal tract.
TLDR
Analysis of acid-precipitable, peak-A, and receptor-active radioactivities demonstrate that IGF-II is relatively more stable than IGF-I in luminal flushings of suckling rat duodenum, jejunum, and midjejunum.
Polymerase chain reaction aids in the diagnosis of an unusual case of Aspergillus niger endocarditis in a patient with acute myeloid leukaemia.
TLDR
A case of A. niger endocarditis in a patient with acute myeloid leukaemia and refractory fever is described and the patient was found to have a lung aspergilloma that was possibly occupationally acquired, and may have been long standing.
Paecilomycosis in a Nonhuman Primate (Macaca mulatta)
TLDR
Focal granulomas caused by fungi in the genus Paecilomyces occurred at subcutaneous and laryngeal sites in a Rhesus monkey and was caused by asphyxiation after occlusion of the larynx by a fungal granuloma.
Presence of insulin-like growth factors and their binding proteins in rat milk.
TLDR
The possibility exists that exogenously derived IGF’s might play a role in postnatal GI growth, and demonstration of active IGF synthesis using probes for IGF mRNA in fetal and neonatal tissues has led credence to this hypothesis.
FATE OF OROGASTRICALLY ADMINISTERED INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTORS I AND II (IGF-I AND -II) TO SUCKLING RATS
TLDR
These studies show that milk-borne IGF remains intact in the GI tract of suckling rats for at least 30 min post ingestion, and much of radioactivity present in GI tract homogenates eluted together with authentic IGF.
