Miniature pigs (Sus scrofa) were used as a model to investigate whether the time of weaning (a nongenetic factor) affects skeletal growth rates for both pre- and postweaning time periods. Control litters were weaned at the normal time of 32 days. Two litters were weaned early (at 20 days) and two late (at 46 days). We digitized cranial landmarks from(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the effects of tubular resorbable polymer membranes on the healing of a segmental diaphyseal bone defect. DESIGN A randomized prospective study using the minipig model. Animals were evaluated with in vivo roentgenograms on a biweekly basis until explanted at twelve weeks. SETTING After surgery, animals were allowed unrestricted(More)
Previous reports have shown that breast cancer patients have exhibited leukocyte migration inhibition test (LMIT) responses to antigenic preparations of the MCF-7 breast cancer cell line, murine mammary tumor virus (MTV), and the T-antigen (Thom sen-Friedenreich antigen), a precursor of the M and N blood group system. We have previously demonstrated(More)

An unresectable, intraabdominal recurrence of a nonfunctioning islet cell carcinoma of the pancreas developed in a 56-year-old man 9 years after he achieved complete remission from extensive radiotherapy. Chronic renal failure secondary to radiation nephritis precluded the use of streptozotocin. 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) (300 mg/m2 per day) was given as a(More)
