1. Two experiments were conducted to determine whether or not high dietary levels of vitamin E affect the development of atherosclerotic lesions in aortas of cholesterol-fed (5 g/kg diet) rabbits that were mechanically deendothelialized by balloon catheterization. 2. In the first experiment, the aortas of rabbits fed 2000 mg vitamin E/kg diet (i.e. 50-fold(More)
The hematologic and pathologic effects of single doses of dimethyl myleran (DMM) were evaluated in rhesus monkeys with and without the infusion of marrow. DMM 3 to 5 mg/kg produced severe but reversible myelotoxicity and no non-marrow toxicity. All animals given DMM 10 mg/kg died of marrow failure which was consistently reversed by the infusion of(More)
A female pet wooly monkey with metabolic bone disease initially presented with a proliferating bony mass in the left humerus which had many features of osteosarcoma. At necropsy, parathyroid hyperplasia, osteoclastic resorption, proliferative osteoid deposition in the calvarium and cortex of long bones, and fibrous proliferation of the marrow indicated the(More)
