The chloro-S-triazine herbicides (i.e., atrazine, simazine, cyanazine) constitute the largest group of herbicides sold in the United States. Despite their extensive usage, relatively little is known about the possible human-health effects and mechanism(s) of action of these compounds. Previous studies in our laboratory have shown that the chlorotriazines(More)
In 1996, the US Environmental Protection Agency was given a mandate by Congress to develop a screening program that would evaluate whether variously identified compounds could affect human health by mimicking or interfering with normal endocrine regulatory functions. Toward this end, the Agency chartered the Endocrine Disruptor Screening and Testing(More)
Multiple exposures to the herbicide atrazine (ATRZ) were shown to suppress the LH surge in both cycling female rats and those ovariectomized (OVX) and primed with estradiol (E2). A single ATRZ administration was found to induce a prompt and marked increase in progesterone (P4). As exogenous P4 is known to have a differential effect on the LH surge depending(More)
PURPOSE To determine the frequency and nature of changes to the brain resulting from chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and bone marrow transplantation for chronic myeloid leukemia and to compare the sensitivity of conventional and registered MR scans for detecting these changes. METHODS In 15 patients, conventional T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and(More)
A method was developed for making EMG recordings from the four individual muscles of the anterior abdominal wall. It was then demonstrated that these muscles have different and distinguishable actions on trunk movement, but act together in breathing. The level of ventilation at which the abdominal muscles become active in expiration was shown to be posture(More)
Sodium N-methyldithiocarbamate (SMD), also known as metam sodium, is a commonly employed soil fungicide and nematocide. Structurally related dithiocarbamates have been found to decrease norepinephrine (NE) synthesis by suppressing the activity of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase. Because brain hypothalamic catecholamine (CA) activity is involved in generating the(More)
Psychological assessments made at the time of bone marrow transplantation (BMT) were examined in 31 patients at 1-2 years posttransplantation and factors associated with survival were explored. Psychological assessments were carried out soon after admission to hospital for the BMT and about 3-4 weeks later. Cox regression survival analysis revealed that an(More)
A single injection of the dithiocarbamate fungicide, thiram, suppresses the proestrous surge of LH and delays ovulation for 24 h. In this study, we examined fertility after a thiram-induced delayed ovulation. Females were injected with thiram (50 mg/kg, IP) on proestrus (1300 h) and mated on the following evening. Control and thiram-treated, but nondelayed,(More)
A 43-year-old woman is reported who developed acute and later chronic graft-versus-host disease following an unrelated donor bone marrow transplantation for chronic myeloid leukaemia. Four years later, she developed a sensory multiple mononeuropathy with biopsy features of chronic vasculitis. This is the first report of vasculitic neuropathy in association(More)
Chlordimeform [N'-(4-chloro-o-tolyl)-N,N-dimethylformamidine] has been shown to cause a 1-day delay in the surge of luteinizing hormone (LH) in ovariectomized, steroid-primed female rats, presumably through its ability to block CNS alpha-noradrenergic receptors and consequently CNS regulation of anterior pituitary function. In the present study, we(More)
