BACKGROUND Previous studies have reported conflicting results on whether different foot placements in standing can affect static measurements of foot posture. We sought to determine whether three measurements of static foot posture could be consistently measured in three different foot placements while standing. METHODS Twenty individuals, 12 women and(More)
The high affinity of granulocytes of guinea pig and man to glass surfaces is modified by serum. Native serum contains both an adherence-promoting activity, which is related to complement, and components which reduce the adhesiveness of granulocytes. These components are stable at 56 degrees C for 30 min and are tightly bound to the glass surface.(More)
Both the uptake of C3-opsonized and of nonopsonized bakers' yeast is inhibited by 1 mM trypan blue. This effect may be explained by inactivation of the C3bi-receptor. But trypan blue also inhibited the uptake of other non-opsonized particles lacking specially binding domains for this receptor. - Suramin has antiphagocytic properties at 1 mM concentration(More)
Forty-one children ages 6-14 years consecutively referred for recurrent urinary tract infections (RUTI) and/or enuresis constituted the study group. Cystourethroscopy (CUS) was carried out in 40 children and pathologic findings were revealed in 70% of children with RUTI in the absence of vesico-ureteral reflux (VUR). However, only in 4 patients did CUS(More)
The study included 88 patients with sterile urine prior to transurethral prostatectomy. Forty-five received a preoperative dose of 2 g of cefotaxime (Claforan) and the remaining 43 were given 10 ml of 0.9% NaCl. The two groups did not differ in frequency of postoperative urinary infection (greater than 10(5) colonies per ml urine); 6 patients (13.3%) in the(More)

The superprecipitation of actomyosin from the A. carotis of cattle is suppressed by a phosphatase containing protein fraction. This inhibition is compensated by ammonium molybdate, an inhibitor of phosphatase activity. The results are related to a phosphorylation-dephosphorylation cycle to realize the Ca-sensitivity of superprecipitation of the actomyosin.
