Carcinoma of the cervix or endometrium was evaluated in 1,021 patients at the Joint Center for Radiation Therapy, Boston, between July 1968 and December 1977. The patients were retrospectively evaluated for the presence of lung metastases, appearing initially or during their disease course. On chest radiography, 42 patients were found to have metastases.(More)
In a double-blind, parallel-group, multicenter trial in 134 patients with severe, localized, plaque psoriasis, the success rate (described as "healed" or "marked improvement") at the end of the study was 96% in the halobetasol propionate group and 91% in the clobetasol propionate group. A significantly larger proportion of patients treated with halobetasol(More)

Review of the literature and the results of the hospital survey substantiate the widely held belief that fine-needle aspiration biopsy is a very safe procedure. However, serious and even fatal complications, although rare, can and do occur and it is important to be aware of the possibility and to take all the appropriate precautions in order to reduce their(More)
The homeostatic response of complex eukaryotes to the challenge of environmental stress includes the induction of several programs of gene expression; among them are those for the acute phase genes and those for the heat shock genes. In some systems, the heat shock response, which is often elicited by more severe stimuli, preempts the acute phase response,(More)
Over the past several decades screening for disease in large asymptomatic populations has increased, culminating most recently with a federal mandate for early, periodic screening, diagnosis and treatment of all children from low-income families. The present study of five consecutive examinations in over 12,000 schoolchildren shows the cumulative occurrence(More)
A mechanical infusion pump was used to introduce 99mTc-sulfur colloid at a rate of 1 ml/minute into the hepatic arteries of six patients. The radiotracer distribution patterns were compared to those obtained with "bolus" radionuclide angiography and those seen with standard contrast angiography. In all cases, the slow flow rate radionuclide studies(More)
Radioligand labeling of [3H]ketanserin was examined in suspensions of dispersed guinea pig small intestinal mucosal cells prepared by modification of the EDTA-chelation method described by M. M. Weiser (J. Biol. Chem. 248: 2536-2541, 1973). Preferential incorporation of [3H]thymidine was used to confirm that suspensions were enriched in crypt cells. At 25(More)
