The hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian hormone secretion patterns were evaluated in two women with 45,X Turner syndrome, spontaneous sexual development, and monthly menstrual periods. Each women had serum gonadotropin and sex steroid determinations during two or more menstrual cycles. During the follicular phase of a menstrual cycle, both women received 100(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of inactivity on lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) enzyme activity (expressed in nmol/g dry weight x hour) in single skeletal musclefibers from the soleus muscle in adult and aged rats. Fourteen 12-month-old andfifteen 30-month-old Fisher 344 Brown Norway F1 Hybrid rats were randomly assigned to control, 1(More)
CD8(+) cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLs) have been proven, in multiple animal models, to be the most powerful antiviral and antitumor components of the immune system. We have developed a protocol to activate and expand tumor and virus peptide-specific CD8(+) T-lymphocytes from the peripheral blood of healthy, human trophic leukemia virus-1 (HTLV-1)(More)
Because the sera of almost half of the Legionnaires' disease (LD) survivors we tested had antibodies toChlamydia psittaci as well as to the LD bacterium, we evaluated the possibility of LD/Chlamydia serological cross-reactivity by testing sera from Philadelphia LD survivors, other persons and animals exposed to or infected withC. psittaci, and unexposed(More)
The original electron microscopic identification by other investigators in 1977 of chlamydiae in the gut tissues of the Chesapeake Bay hard clam (Mercenaria mercenaria) is corroborated and further supported by evidence ofChlamydia-specific immunofluorescence (IF). Our electron microscopy demonstrated that gut tissue cells were heavily infected with(More)
