A spontaneous complete remission of 34 months' duration was observed in an adult patient with acute myeloblastic leukemia. The remission occurred after a severe febrile pneumonia, which was treated with leukocyte transfusions. At relapse, chromosomal abnormalities reappeared slowly. Such spontaneous complete remissions, almost always associated with(More)
Crossbred steers fed with varying levels of wet distillers grains to test the incidence of liver-like off-flavors. USDA Choice steaks, when compared to USDA Select, had significantly higher trained sensory muscle fiber tenderness scores, less detectable connective tissue, higher juiciness scores, and more intense off-flavor ratings. USDA Choice steaks had a(More)
We investigated the clonal relationship of malignant cells in a patient affected with both chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and multiple myeloma (MM). CLL cells and malignant plasma cells synthesized IgG1 kappa and IgA kappa molecules, respectively; these monoclonal Ig shared idiotypic determinants, providing evidence that a single clonal disease occurred(More)
42 bone marrow biopsies (BMB) were done in 34 patients with angio-immunoblastic lymphadenopathy (AIL), 3 of them associated with Gougerot-Sjögren syndrome. Involvement of bone marrow was discovered in 36 BMB (85%) and in 27 patients (79%). The lesions appeared as nodules destroying the hematopoietic tissue. Each nodule was constituted by a variable amount(More)
Four men and four women, aged 16 to 43, developed dural sinus thrombosis, five patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (L.A.L.) and three with non Hodgkin malignant lymphoma (N.H.M.L.). All the cases of L.A.L. were F.A.B.-2 subtype without any unusual hematological features. In 6 cases, the disorders occurred during the phase of therapeutical induction(More)
A 2-year study of four groups of women (N = 268)--addicts, prostitute-addicts, prostitutes, and female offenders--reveals that the link between female criminal activity and female drug involvement is significant. All four groups report "drug costs" as a major percentage of their monthly expenses. Prostitutes and female offenders report purchasing drugs(More)
The main hematological manifestations and complications seen in 18 cases of Sjögren's syndrome are described: a slight anemia of the inflammatory type, a leucopenia, and/or an eosinophilia occur in about half of the patients. One case of auto-immune hemolytic anemia, one of pernicious anemia, 3 of hypoplastic anemia--one of them drug-induced--, and one of(More)
Peritoneal adhesions were created in rats by brisk scrubbing of the terminal part of the ileum. Adhesions were graded by total number and the presence of small bowel obstruction. Adhesion prophylaxis was evaluated using dexamethasone, methylprednisolone sodium succinate, promethazine hydrochloride, and human fibrinolysin (Thrombolysin) in various(More)
A canary breeder with Waldenström's macroglobulinemia developed a pulmonary disease related to an interstitial infiltration by malignant B cells secreting a monoclonal IgM K. The serum monoclonal IgM was shown to possess an antibody activity to some canary's droppings antigen. This finding may help elucidate the natural course of lymphoid malignancies and(More)
