Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is commonly encountered in clinical practice. In 1996 the American Society of Hematology published a landmark guidance paper designed to assist clinicians in the management of this disorder. Since 1996 there have been numerous advances in the management of both adult and pediatric ITP. These changes mandated an update in the(More)
This review assesses the current status of knowledge concerning the relationship of risk factors to atherosclerotic lesions. Risk factors for atherosclerotic lesions per se need not necessarily be identical to those related to clinically overt coronary heart disease (CHD). This review is based on 1) autopsy studies where information risk factors was(More)
Bone marrow from a normal male pig was transplanted into a related female pig with severe homozygous von Willebrand's disease (vWd). After engraftment the circulating leukocytes were of the male karyotype, and the platelets were strongly positive for von Willebrand factor (vWF) by indirect immunofluorescence. The average level of vWF was 1.96 U/dl and of(More)
We used the X-linked restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP)-methylation strategy to study the clonal basis of the myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) in seven patients. RFLP-methylation analysis was performed on cell populations from bone marrow (BM) aspirates and peripheral blood using probes specific for the hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase(More)
Histological examinations were made on nasal biopsy specimens from the middle turbinate in 318 active and 15 retired nickel workers and in 57 controls, to study the prevalence of nasal carcinoma or possible precancerous mucosal changes in nickel-exposed individuals. The histopathological changes were evaluated according to a point-score scale, and the(More)

Women with terminal breast cancer who were admitted to CHNE, a not-for-profit hospice serving(More)
The isolation and characterization of human megakaryocyte growth factors has been hampered because evaluation of megakaryocyte growth in semisolid medium requires both lengthy incubation and visual quantitation. In addition, colony formation requires cell division, while most regulation of platelet production may involve individual, nonproliferating(More)
