The survival and cell kinetics effect of 1,2:5,6-dianhydrogalactitol, NSC-132313 (galactitol), were studied on mammalian cells. Nondividing or plateau-phase cells were almost two times more sensitive to galactitol than were cells treated in the dividing state (dose required to reduce survival by 63% on the exponential part of the survival curve (DO)=4.2(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the growth of acid-fast bacilli on classically formulated Lowenstein-Jensen media and Middlebrook 7H11 agar to modified Middlebrook 7H9 broth. DESIGN Microbiology culture results were evaluated to determine the number of days required to detect growth of acid-fast bacilli from clinical specimens inoculated on different media. DATA(More)
Being able to connect high-speed computing and other information technologies into broadband communication networks presents local communities with some of their best chances for renewal. Such technologies are now widely perceived to be not just a nice amenity among corporations and such nonprofit organizations as universities but a social and economic(More)
We report on a series of experiments conducted jointly by Ohio University and The Huntington National Bank. Our aim was to determine if ACTS-based data communications services can serve as redundant facilities in an otherwise terrestrial network. We examined both technical compatibility and network management issues. In addition, Ohio University researchers(More)
The effects of the anticancer drug diglycolaldehyde (NSC-118994) were studied on Chinese hamster ovary cells growing in vitro. Dividing cells, specifically those in S-phase, were more sensitive to the drug than were nondividing cells, although a large fraction of nondividing cells was also killed by doses up to 800 microgram/ml. Dose-dependent effects on(More)
Exponentially growing cells and cells that were allowed to enter a plateau or nondividing state of growth by depleting the medium of growth-essential nutrients were used in these studies. Nondividing Chinese hamster ovary cells in vitro are less sensitive to actinomycin D (AMD) than are exponentially growing cells. The cells were tested for their ability to(More)
Efforts to keep the broadband Internet a free and open public utility are much in the news. In the context of the Network Society, the authors examine some of the publicly stated arguments and positions being taken in the articulation of “net neutrality” and “open source” practices and principles. The article explores the difficult technical challenges(More)
A multinational mission architecture is proposed as a way to start development of global space solar power (SSP) industry. Solar power generated on the International Space Station (whose orbit is roughly 400 km above the Earth) will be converted to millimeter waves and beamed to ground receivers located in five or more nations, providing measurements of(More)
