Previous studies have identified an overabundance of quiescent-phenotype (CD45RA(+)) CD4(+) T cells throughout the lymphoid system of weanling mice at an advanced stage of food intake restriction mimicking marasmus. The objective of this investigation was to determine the timing of this phenomenon relative to the development of depression in cell-mediated(More)
The Mta antigen is a low-frequency red blood cell (RBC) surface antigen and is an established antigen of the MNSs blood group system. There has been one report of anti-Mta-induced hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) in the literature to date. We describe a family in which three children were affected by neonatal anemia. The clinical and hematologic(More)
Anti-LU8, an antibody defining a high-frequency antigen in the Lutheran system, was identified in the serum of a gravida 4 para 0 pregnant women who had never been transfused. The antibody consisted of both an IgM and an IgG1 component and was nonreactive in the antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) assay. The red cells of the mother and 3(More)
Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a chronic cholestatic disorder of unknown etiology characterized by progressive fibrosis and stricturing of the biliary tract. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is a family of cytokines produced by biliary tract epithelial cells that promote fibrinogenesis. Our objective was to determine whether TGF-β levels are(More)
Two ataxia telangiectasia patients with unusual clinical and cellular features are described. Cultured fibroblasts and PHA stimulated lymphocytes from these two patients showed a smaller increase of radiosensitivity than cells from other A-T patients, as measured by colony forming ability or induced chromosome damage respectively, after exposure to ionising(More)
