One hundred thirty-six patients underwent radionuclide ventriculography as part of an evaluation prior to bone marrow transplantation. One hundred twenty-six who were considered suitable transplant candidates began conditioning chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy and were retrospectively evaluated for development of cardiac toxicity. The cumulative(More)
The radionuclide investigation of skeletal trauma in the past was confined generally to scintimetry and an occasional bone scan. The development of improved radiopharmaceuticals, including 99mTc-labeled compounds with their enhanced sensitivity, and the refinement of imaging devices offering superior resolution and speed have allowed a more detailed(More)
The incidence of myocardial hypertrophy was determined in a comparative study of tacrolimus-based immunosuppression with cyclosporine-based immunosuppression for prevention of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after unrelated donor bone marrow transplantation. Patients were evaluated for clinical and echocardiographic abnormalities at baseline (prior(More)
Because of the onset of symptoms in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease is generally delayed until adulthood, genetic counseling is imprecise. In an attempt to identify patients early, 261 offspring of subjects with the gene for polycystic disease were tested. Agreement between the results of excretory urography with nephrotomography(More)
To assess the efficacy of methandrostenolone in the treatment of osteoporosis a 26-mo double-blind study was performed with 13 treated and 13 control (placebo) postmenopausal osteoporotic females. Drug effect was assessed primarily by determinations of total body calcium (TBC) by neutron activation analysis, essentially a measurement of total bone mineral(More)
Stress can enhance or suppress immune functions depending on a variety of factors. Our previous studies observed that Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) participates in chronic restraint stress-induced immune dysfunction. However, the mechanism by which TLR2 prevents immune suppression remains elusive. Our investigation found that stimulation of TLR2 by(More)
Stress, either physical or psychological, can have a dramatic impact on our immune system. There has been little progress, however, in understanding chronic stress-induced immunosuppression. Naive CD4+ T cells could modulate immune responses via differentiation to T helper (Th) cells. In this study, we showed that stress promotes the release of the Th1(More)
