Multiple visceral and cutaneous granular cell tumors. Ultrastructural and immunocytochemical evidence of Schwann cell origin
Granular cell tumor of the stomach is rare and may occur in association with similar tumors in the skin. Two such tumors were found in association with cutaneous granular cell tumors in two blackExpand

The leptomeningeal vein. A site of re‐entry of leukemic cells into the systemic circulation
The possible routes of transvascular migration of leukemic cells were studied in guinea pigs with an L2C lymphoblastic cell‐line inoculation leukemia. The leukemic infiltrates were found mostly inExpand

Semisynthetic echinocandins affect cell wall deposition of Pneumocystis carinii in vitro and in vivo.
Cyclic lipodepsipeptide compounds of the echinocandin class exhibit broad-spectrum antifungal activity and have been shown to be effective in the treatment of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia inExpand

Impact of selective antimicrobial agents on staphylococcal adherence to biomedical devices.
BACKGROUND Infection of intravascular or implanted biomedical devices often involves biofilm-forming staphylococci that are recalcitrant to antimicrobial therapy. The present study investigated theExpand

Terminal cytoplasmic maturation of human megakaryocytes in vitro.
Several studies suggest that serum factors (thrombopoietins) regulate thrombopoiesis by altering the number, size, ploidy, and maturation rate of megakaryocytes (MK). Various in vivo systems haveExpand

Establishment in long term culture of megakaryocytic leukemia cells (EST-IU) from the marrow of a patient with leukemia and a mediastinal germ cell neoplasm.
Megakaryocytes are the bone marrow cells that generate platelets. They are relatively rare cells, comprising between 0.03 and 0.06% of all nucleated marrow cells (R. L. Berkow et al., J. Lab. Clin.Expand

Characterization of a multicopy family of genes encoding a surface-expressed serine endoprotease in rat Pneumocystis carinii.
A unique family of genes encoding serine endoproteases related to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae serine endoprotease kexin was identified in Pneumocystis carinii. Unlike previously described serineExpand
