A randomised controlled trial was carried out to study the effect of 10 g of ascorbic acid taken during the first 2 1/2 days on the symptoms of the common cold. Altogether 1524 volunteers were recruited from a number of working groups in different parts of the country; 482 developed colds. There was no evidence that upper respiratory or general(More)

The newly isolated human influenza-A strain containing swine antigens isolated in New Jersey, U.S.A., was inoculated into six volunteers. Clinical reactions were mild although all volunteers were infected. The longest period for which the virus was excreted was 8 days and the shortest 3 days. In its virulence for man the New Jersey strain was intermediate(More)
A long-term study is described of recombinant influenza viruses produced from the avirulent laboratory strain, A/PR/8/34 (H0 N1), and newly isolated H3 N2 influenza virus variants. A number of H3 H2 recombinants were found to be attenuated for man and capable of inducing antibody formation, and were therefore potentially usable as live vaccines. However,(More)
Myeloid sarcomas are rare extramedullary solid tumors composed of immature myeloid cells. The clinical presentations of these malignant neoplasms are highly variable, ranging from asymptomatic to localized mass effect. Here, we report an unusual case of myeloid sarcoma of the testis found in association with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia where the(More)
