Electromyographic activity was evaluated in 20 patients (10 girls and 10 boys, mean age 10 years) with Class III malocclusion who were treated with a chin cup appliance. The posttreatment data were obtained at the end of phase 1 chin cup treatment when the anterior crossbite had been corrected. EMG activity of the masseter and temporal muscles for each(More)
Background: Creatine kinase isoenzyme MB (CK-MB) activity using the immunoinhibition method has been measured in clinical laboratories. However, the presence of mitochondrial CK (MtCK) abnormally increases CK-MB activity when measured using the conventional method, which can lead to misdiagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). A new CK-MB activity(More)

Low lactate dehydrogenase (LD; EC 1.1.1.27) activity and an abnormal LD pattern in electrophoretograms of LD isoenzymes in the sera of two patients were caused by inhibition of LD by immunoglobulin G. One of these showed inhibitor activity in the serum upon direct analysis, while the other showed activity only after the immunoglobulin was stripped from the(More)
To the Editor: Results of serum assays for free tri-iodothyronine (FT 3) can be falsely increased by cross-reacting drugs and by autoantibodies (e.g., antithy-roid hormone autoantibodies, het-erophilic antibodies). The FT 3 anti-body included in the Vitros FT3 assay (Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Inc.) cross-reacts with diclofenac (1), resulting in falsely(More)
Radioimmunoassay specific for GRP was developed using C-terminal specific anti-synthetic porcine GRP sera. Measurement of the porcine gastrointestine and brain tissue extracts with GRP and with bombesin radioimmunoassays indicates that the bombesin-like immunoreactivity found in the porcine tissues is attributable to GRP or GRP-like materials. GRP-like(More)
