Effects of temperature on morphologic variation of Schizotrypanum cruzi in tissue culture.
Abstract A strain of Schizotrypanum cruzi , isolated from an acute case of Chagas' disease, was inoculated into cultures of “L” cells. Some infected tissue cultures were kept at 26 ± 2 ° C and someExpand

The role of prostaglandin F2α in byssinosis
Female guinea pigs were perfused via the pulmonary artery with Tyrode's solution containing 0, 10−6, 10−5, or 10−4 g/mL of lyophilized aqueous extracts of cotton dust. The perfusate was collected viaExpand
