PURPOSE A randomized controlled trial was conducted to compare the language and auditory processing outcomes of children assigned to receive the Fast ForWord Language intervention (FFW-L) with the outcomes of children assigned to nonspecific or specific language intervention comparison treatments that did not contain modified speech. METHOD Two hundred(More)
Chemotherapeutic agents which affect the integration, stability, or inducibility of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) provirus would have considerable value in treating acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Two nucleoside analogs of cytosine, 5-azacytidine and 5-azadeoxycytidine, which seem to have such value because of their capabilities to affect both(More)
A 2.1-year prospective study of 1373 patients given oral 8-methoxypsoralen photochemotherapy for psoriasis revealed 30 patients with a total of 48 basal-cell and squamous-cell carcinomas. The observed incidence of cutaneous carcinoma was 2.63 (95 per cent confidence limits = 1.91 to 3.90) times that expected for an age, sex and geographically matched(More)
Vaccination with either whole inactivated rabies virus or immunosome (rabies glycoprotein anchored on liposomes) induces a high level of interleukin 2 (IL 2) production after in vitro specific stimulation of splenocytes from primed mice (9). On the contrary, infection with a live rabies virus does not specifically induce the production of IL 2: splenocytes(More)
We studied two methods to reduce the ordering of laboratory and radiologic tests by medical residents in their first postgraduate year. Dividing the residents into three groups, we compared the effect of concurrent chart review and discussion in one group with the effect of a moderate financial incentive for limited ordering of tests in a second group. The(More)
In view of theoretical concern that psoralen ultraviolet A radiation (PUVA) therapy might induce a systemic lupus erythematosus-like syndrome, we studied serum antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) in patients with psoriasis who received PUVA and are participating in a five-year prospective study. At 14 centers, 1,023 patients had two or more ANA determinations.(More)
Rabies immunosomes (glycoprotein anchored on pre-formed liposomes) have been prepared in order to study their structural, biological and immunological properties. The glycoprotein molecules appear to have the same orientation on the immunosome as on the viral particle: (1) electron microscopy analysis shows particles of 40 to 70 nm with spikes protruding(More)
Antigen-specific IL-2 production was assessed, using splenocytes from rabies immune mice incubated for 24 h with rabies virus antigen. The antigenic material used for in vivo priming was either purified glycoprotein from rabies virus, or the inactivated virus. The time between priming, harvesting and restimulation of the splenocytes was 7 days. It was found(More)
BALB/c mice were primed by receiving a unique intraperitoneal injection of rabies virus antigens presented as complete inactivated virus (P.V. strain) or as purified glycoproteins either in the aggregated form or in physical combination with liposomes (i.e., in the form of "immunosomes"). The splenocytes of these mice were restimulated, 6-15 days after(More)
