Fourteen chemicals of varied uses were tested for carcinogenicity by oral administration in male and female Charles River CD rats. Under the conditions of the tests, propane sultone, propylene imine, and ethylenethiourea, in addition to the positive control N-2-fluorenylacetamide, were carcinogenic. Avadex, bis(2-chloroethyl) ether, the potassium salt of(More)
A previously reported negative association between a high index of dietary vitamin A and lung cancer incidence was confirmed in an extended follow-up, covering 11 1/2 years, of 13,785 men and 2,928 women, Responses to a postal questionnaire provided the dietary information. Relationships between the major dietary items and lung cancer were explored for(More)
Recently, Beal (1987, Biometrics 43, 941-950) found Mee's modification of Anbar's approximate interval estimation for the difference in binomial parameters to be a good choice in small sample sizes. As this method can be derived from the score theory of Bartlett, it is easily corrected for skewness. Exact numerical evaluation shows that this correction is(More)
To evaluate the possibility that genetic factors contribute to the excess rates of multiple myeloma among blacks, serological typing of human leukocyte antigens (HLA) was conducted for black and white male patients and controls who participated in a large population-based case-control interview study. Forty-six black cases, 88 black controls, 85 white(More)
The cell cycle of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in populations growing at different rates was analyzed by flow microflourometry. The results demonstrate that (i) variation in growth rate of the population depends mainly on variation in the G1 phase of the cell cycle, and (ii) atall growth rates initiation of DNA synthesis occurs concomitantly with initiation of(More)
