Postoperative retained surgical sponges or other foreign bodies are usually underreported. Radio-opaque materials are usually detected on follow-up radiological investigations, but radiolucent materials such as sponges create diagnostic problems and clinically mimic various abdominal pathologies. Introduction of spiral computed tomography, magnetic(More)
Thymocytes develop into mature functional T cells in the inductive environment of the thymus where thymocyte-stromal cell interactions and cytokines provide survival and differentiation signals as cues for thymocyte maturation. Disruption of the thymic microenvironment results in attenuation of T cell maturation, suggesting that intrathymic signals are(More)
The present studies have characterized the regulation of interleukin-6 (IL-6) gene expression during pokeweed mitogen (PWM)-driven human B-cell differentiation. PWM induced an early and transient increase in the expression of immediate-early response genes of the jun/fos leucine zipper family (c-jun, jun B, c-fos, and fos-B). The induction of c-jun mRNA by(More)
The present study was carried out in 100 children of acute pneumonia to establish the diagnosis of etiologic agents. Clinico-radiological assessment and routine investigations including sputum, throat swab and blood culture did not help in identifying the offending micro-organisms. The bacteriological examination of lung puncture aspirate was the most(More)
Glucocorticoid hormones modulate T cell maturation in vivo. While low levels of hormones are required for appropriate T cell development, high levels of glucocorticoid hormones target immature developing thymocytes for cell death during systemic stress. In this report, we propose a molecular mechanism for the induction of apoptosis in CD4+CD8+(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the clinical spectrum associated with gelatinous bone marrow transformation (GMT). METHODS All subjects whose bone marrow aspiration showed pink purple material on Leishman stain underwent a detail history, clinical examination and investigation (biochemical/microbiological/radiological). Additionally, in each subject the smear was(More)
AIMS Various features have been described in the literature to differentiate benign from malignant lesions. The aim of the present study was to study the accuracy of each of these features and that of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in diagnosing malignant lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-five consecutive patients presenting with neoplastic (both(More)
Expression of CD2 on developing and mature murine B cells was examined by using an antipeptide antiserum (L50). Most Ig-bearing splenic B cells were found to express CD2. Anti-CD5 and anti-B220 mAb divided the peritoneal B cells into two populations expressing high and low levels of these proteins; both populations were found to express uniform levels of(More)
