The bone marrow stromal cell population is comprised of fibroblasts, endothellal cells, fat cells and “reticular cells.” The characteristics and the regulatory role in hematopolesis of each of these cell types are unknown. A liquid culture system has been used to clone and to characterize human bone marrow fibroblast colony-forming cells (CFU-F). The linear(More)
Findings from a study of family functioning following divorce suggest ways in which the parents' ongoing relationship-both as former spouse and as coparent-may moderate the effects of divorce on their children. Level of conflict in the "spouse" role was found to be less predictive of children's adjustment than were degree of cooperation and style of(More)
BACKGROUND In 1984, the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group began a randomized controlled clinical trial of patients with advanced (stage III or IV) diffuse mixed or diffuse large-cell lymphoma to determine whether complete-remission rates, survival, and toxicity differed when patients were treated with a chemotherapeutic regimen containing cyclophosphamide,(More)
One hundred cases of gastric carcinoma at The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center included 7 cases of gastric remnant carcinomas, which were analyzed and compared with prior reports in the literature. Gastric remnant carcinoma is a distinct entity, noted in greatest incidence beginning approximately 15 years after surgery for benign gastric disease.(More)
BACKGROUND Recent data have suggested that there are no differences among various anthracycline-based chemotherapy regimens [including cyclophosphamide, vincristine, methotrexate, and prednisone (CHOP), methotrexate, calcium leucovorin, bleomycin, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone (m-BACOD), methotrexate, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide,(More)
A three-year study examined the effects of two prevention programs for sole-support mothers with preschool-aged children. A life-skills, esteem-building group program was compared with a group program teaching life skills combined with parent training. A non-randomized, repeated-measures design was employed with measures occurring before, after, and one(More)
Group A streptococci from parent cultures (PC) of six different serotypes were selected by rotation with human blood (RHB) or by serial passage via intraperitoneal inoculation in mice (MP). M-protein content of PC, RHB and MP streptococci of each serotype was determined in quintuplicate by radial immunodiffusion against type-specific antisera. Hyaluronic(More)
Past research on the relationship between family factors and military readiness in the Army has suggested that family issues affect retention far more than readiness. New data on individual soldier readiness were analyzed to assess the relative importance of family factors (internal and external family adaptation) compared to unit readiness, longevity,(More)
