The attenuation coefficient in two groups (n1 = 70; n2 = 59) of pathologically graded in vitro human liver specimens was measured over a frequency range from 1.25-8.0 MHz and fitted to a power law model. The slopes of the power law curves at 5 MHz were correlated with pathological scores for fat in Group I, which consisted of normal and fatty livers (no(More)
The speed of sound in normal and diffusely-diseased liver specimens was measured. There were four experimental groups, consisting of normal (n = 21), fatty (n = 7), fibrotic (n = 7) and mixed fatty and fibrotic (n = 9). These classifications were based on histological grading. We found that the results corroborate and extend most of the results of Bamber(More)
The attenuation coefficient in 38 pathologically graded in vitro liver specimens was measured over a frequency range from 1.25-8 MHz and fitted to the power law model. The attenuation in the normal group (n = 17) exhibited a frequency dependence of the form 0.399f1.139; in the mild disease group (n = 13), it exhibited a dependence of the form 0.395f1.212;(More)
We examined the in vivo effects of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) in primates (cynomolgus monkeys) treated with subcutaneous doses of rhG-CSF for 14-28 d. A dose-dependent increase in the peripheral white blood cells (WBC) was seen, reaching a plateau after 1 wk of rhG-CSF treatment. The elevation of WBC was due to an(More)
Macrodactyly can affect the fingers and/or toes1. Histopathologic examination will distinguish macrodactylia fibrolipomatosis or neural fibrolipoma with macrodactyly, from macrodactylia as a part of neurofibromatosis. Surgical repair is aimed at decreasing the size of the affected foot so it is as near in size and shape to the normal foot as possible.(More)
The observation that mast cell products and cachectin/tumour necrosis factor (TNF) mediate similar responses suggested an investigation of cultured human basophil/mast cells for production of TNF. Using in situ hybridization and the avidin biotin-complex (ABC) immunoperoxidase method, we have demonstrated the presence of TNF mRNA in the cytoplasm and TNF(More)
Human leukemic promyelocytes of the HL-60 line were grown as tumors in nude mice and studied. A single nonmetastatic granulocytic sarcoma developed after subcutaneous inoculation with HL-60 cells. Some exceeded 5 cm in size. Almost all mice developed tumors after initial priming with cyclophosphamide. Older sarcomas showed viable tumor islands in necrotic(More)
Neoplasms of the peripheral nervous system arise from the cellular sheath surrounding the nerve trunks, that is, the pluripotential Schwann cells and related cells, and rarely affect the feet. When present, they are most frequently associated with the autosomal dominantly inherited neurofibromatosis 1. This condition has been related to chromosome 17, and(More)
