The Ca1 antibody has been used in an immunohistochemical procedure to detect the Ca antigen in sections of tissues routinely embedded in paraffin wax. A representative sample of benign and malignant tumours from all the systems of the human body has been examined. The majority of malignant tumors express the Ca antigen. The exceptions are: prostatic(More)
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between psychopathy as measured by The Revised Psychopathy Checklist (PCL-R) and delinquent behaviors, conduct disorder, and personality disorders in psychiatrically hospitalized adolescents. Thirty adolescent inpatients were assessed for psychopathy, delinquent behaviors, DSM-III-R Axis I disorders,(More)
In a search for antibodies that might distinguish between malignant and non-malignant cells a panel of matched pairs of hybrid cells produced by fusion of diploid fibroblasts with malignant cells originating from a cervical carcinoma was used as a screen. Each pair consisted of a hybrid in which malignancy was suppressed and a malignant segregant derived(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess whether the psychosocial and behavioral changes that occur during and after pregnancy influence long-term weight gain. The study examined 74 mothers enrolled in the Antenatal Care (ANC) Project (a randomized controlled trial of antenatal care based in South London), all of whom had volunteered to take part in a(More)
The Ca1 antibody has been used in an immunocytochemical procedure on smears of cells recovered from 50 effusions from the pericardial, peritoneal, and pleural cavities. In 25 samples containing malignant cells, as assessed by conventional morphological criteria, this antibody distinguished malignant from non-malignant cells in 21 samples. The exceptions(More)
This study examined the reliability of hand written and computerised records of birth data collected during the Birth to Ten study at Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto. The reliability of record-keeping in hand-written obstetric and neonatal files was assessed by comparing duplicate records of six different variables abstracted from six different sections in(More)
The kinetic parameters of hexose uptake were measured in matched pairs of hybrids between malignant and normal cells. Each pair consisted of a hybrid in which malignancy was initially suppressed and a segregant tumour derived from it. Comparisons were also made between tumour cells and non-tumorigenic derivatives selected from the tumour cell populations in(More)
In a cohort of 272 treatment-naive individuals with chronic hepatitis C infection acquired on a known date who were enrolled in the UK HCV National Register, a progressive improvement in response to treatment was found with the evolution of antiviral therapies from 20% (25/122) for interferon monotherapy to 63% (55/88) for pegylated interferon+ribavirin(More)
added and incubated for 1 h at room temperature while shaken. Tetramethylbenzidine substrate (BioFX Laboratories, Owings Mills, MD) was added and the subsequent reaction was quantitated at 450 nm with a Victor 1420 reader (Perkin...
