The in vitro cloning of haematopoietic progenitor cells derived from blood or bone marrow is now an established technique for the study of normal and abnormal blood formation. In semi-solid agar the results are conventionally recorded as the number of clusters or colonies that grow on the plate under controlled culture conditions. However, the demonstration(More)
Cyclosporin-A levels were determined by radioimmunoassay in plasma or whole blood, using split samples collected from patients receiving this agent as the only form of immunosuppression following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. In the plasma assay the temperature at which centrifugation took place was critical since the mean levels were(More)
Anemia in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) is multifactorial, and while the majority will respond to the paternal administration of recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEPO), a role for coexistent plasma inhibitors and stimulators, such as burst-promoting activity (BPA), remains controversial. To evaluate the latter possibility, eight individuals(More)
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the most common autoimmune blistering disease characterized by pathogenic autoantibodies targeting collagen XVII (col XVII), a hemidesmosomal adhesion molecule. Early studies utilizing IgG were critical for establishing col XVII-specific antibodies as primary mediators of blister formation; however, these studies lacked key(More)
Phototherapy has been widely used in the treatment of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Recent reports, however, have indicated that fluorescent light may be toxic and mutagenic to mammalian cells. these findings suggest possible long-term side effects with the use of phototherapy. This study was undertaken to determine the effects of phototherapy on hepatic(More)
Infusion of functional allogeneic granulocytes is rational therapy in pyrexial patients with severe neutropenia when combined with appropriate antibiotic administration. On the basis of our first year's experience we endorse this approach, but emphasise the need for further critical evaluation of these cells, and present an approach to placing this(More)
