Nutritive deprivation, suckling deprivation, gastronintestinal fill, and milk availability contribute to the control of sucking (as measured by jaw-muscle electromyograph) and ingestion of milk (provided via a tongue cannula) in 11-13-day-old rat pups. Depriving pups of the opportunity to suckle reliably increases subsequent sucking and milk intake.(More)
A 21-year-old man, with a past history of severe aphthosis and arthritis between age 5 and 15 years, presented at age 18 years with a large leg ulceration, which developed after minor trauma. At that time he was otherwise healthy and taking no medications. Between 1983 and 1986 the patient failed to respond to intensive topical care to the ulcer, two(More)
Varied milk delivery contingencies differentially affect sucking in rat pups as measured by jaw-muscle electromyographic activity. In Experiment I we found that 11-13-day-old pups sucked more frequently when receiving tiny intermittent pulses of milk than when receiving no milk, and continued to suck at a high rate for at least 30 min after cessation of(More)
We present four patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia treated with fludarabine, who developed aggressive skin cancer after years of quiescence, a short time after institution of treatment. Their leukemias responded well to therapy with fludarabine with initial treatment as well as relapse. Three patients had recurrence with basal cell carcinomas with(More)
An intracranial haemorrhage was diagnosed by computerised tomography in 35 term neonates. Subarachnoid haemorrhage was found in 23, intracerebral haemorrhage in 9 and subdural haematoma in 3 patients. Perinatal risk factors indicating trauma or hypoxic events were evaluated in more than 50%. Clinical symptoms were independent of the site of the bleeding. An(More)
Psychiatric and neurological symptoms as well as the clinical diagnosis of 22 patients on chronic hemodialysis were set in contrast with the findings of the cranial computerized tomography. The cranial computerized tomography turns out to be a valuable diagnostic aid to recognise or exclude morphologic lesions in the central nervous system, particularly(More)
