OBJECTIVE The relative effectiveness of two types of group therapy-the disease-and-recovery model and the cognitive-behavioral model-was examined in a public inpatient and outpatient setting with consumers who had a dual diagnosis of a personality disorder and a substance use disorder. Outcomes in four areas of problem severity were measured: alcohol use,(More)
Exposure of mice to ultraviolet radiation results in the development of suppressor T lymphocytes in lymphoid organs, followed by the appearance of primary skin cancers. The presence or absence of these suppressor lymphocytes determines whether or not primary cancers will develop in the ultraviolet-irradiated skin. This demonstrates the importance of(More)
Infection with Bacillus anthracsis spores induces an acute anthrax disease that can cause casualties and death in untreated cases. Thus rapid diagnosis of anthrax at early stage of the disease is essential to allow an effective treatment. Here we present the development of rapid and sensitive homogenous time-resolved fluorescence (HTRF) immunoassays based(More)
Cells of the 10T 1/2 mouse fibroblast line transformed in vitro by ultraviolet radiation are antigenically similar to those from skin cancers produced in mice by repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Both types of tumor cells grew preferentially in ultraviolet-irradiated syngeneic mice relative to untreated animals, and both were recognized by(More)
In this series of 80 patients, five factors are found to contribute to a visible major fissure. Volume changes in either the lower or upper lobes may cause fissural rotation from a coronal to a sagittal plane (26 patients). An incomplete or variant fissure with fluid abutting it (20 patients), or combinations of these factors (16 patients) will make the(More)
