A calculation program is described by means of which the frequency of any type of relationship in cases of disputable descent (questionable partenity, maternity, parenthood, brother- and sisterhood) using blood group results, can be calculated. Within the scope of forensical practice, the program is above all important in cases in which the alleged father(More)
Frequencies for the genetic polymorphisms of the serum proteins Hp, Tf, Gc, Gm, Inv and Pt are presented for 7 ethnically defined Negroid sub-samples (total n = 918--977, depending on genetic marker system) from South Africa. The results are discussed in terms of previous findings and of factors assumed to have an influence on the distribution of the(More)
G-CSF (filgrastim) can effectively mobilize peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPC) when administered during steady-state hematopoiesis. In this single center study, we compared the effectiveness of two different doses of G-CSF on the mobilization of peripheral blood stem cells in patients with Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and cancer of the(More)
In a recent publication, Li and Chakravarti claim to have shown that the paternity index is not a likelihood ratio. They present a method of estimating the prior probability of paternity from a sample of previous court cases on the basis of exclusions and nonexclusions. They propose calculating the posterior probability on the basis of this estimated prior(More)
We investigated the feasibility of mobilizing peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) with G-CSF alone in 24 patients with multiple myeloma. The median age was 53 years (range 33-62). All patients had stage II/III disease and responded to standard first-line (n = 6) or salvage chemotherapy (n = 18). The median number of previous chemotherapy cycles was 7 (4-18)(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify trends in the recent onset of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in Colorado youth seen at the Barbara Davis Center (BDC) and compare these changes over time. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective chart review was performed of patients ages 0-20 years at diagnosis of T1D and type 2 diabetes who were seen at the BDC, were living within Colorado at(More)

Blood group systems with a rare second allel are in praxis ineffective and therefore uneconomical because of their low exclusion potency as well as their low serostatistical value. The evidence of exclusion in particular blood group systems is fixed by the German "Richtlinien". With the new German law, however, one has to differentiate between the(More)
The antileukemic and anti-HTLV-III (anti-HIV) agent avarol, a sesquiterpenoid hydroquinone, was determined to be converted into its corresponding quinone derivative avarone via the semiquinone free radical. Its g-value was 2.0047; after hyperfine splitting the energy levels revealed 16 isotropic Hfs. The redox reaction products were identified at the pH(More)
We report a large family with an isolated case of Huntington's disease (HD), which is probably the result of a new mutation. The patient developed clinical signs typical of HD at the age of 36. The clinical course of the patient's disease is documented by several clinical admissions over a period of 14 years at present. The family history is strikingly(More)
