In the spring and summer of 1987, four persons acquired Rocky Mountain spotted fever within New York City, an area in which the disease had not previously been known to be endemic. Three of the four… Expand
The copper intrauterine device and its mode of action.
Copper bearing intrauterine devices have become the most reputable effective and safe IUDs available. The reaction between the copper and the body prevents fertilization. An infiltration of… Expand
Copper in mammalian reproduction.
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the copper in mammalian reproduction. Although copper has long been known to be involved in reproductive processes, interest has increased considerably… Expand
Sensitive and specific detection of toxoplasma DNA in an experimental murine model: use of Toxoplasma gondii-specific cDNA and the polymerase chain reaction.

Toxoplasma gondii, an apicomplexan parasite of mammals and birds, is well recognized as a cause of encephalitis in AIDS patients and as a cause of congenital infections. The polymerase chain reaction… Expand
Teratogenic action of bis(dichloroacetyl)diamine on rats: patterns of malformations produced in high incidence at time-limited periods of development.
Win 18,446, a bis(dichloroacetyl)diamine, is a drug that was previously shown to suppress spermatogenesis and to be an effective oral abortifacient in rats. The present study shows that the drug is… Expand
Copper stimulation and inhibition of the rat uterus.
To clarify the possible effects of the copper IUD on the human myometrium the in vitro effects of copper ions and copper metal were studied on the rat uterus. Copper sulfate induced uterine… Expand
Fetal resorption induced by disulfiram in rats.
When pregnant rats given disulfiram, a copper-chelating agent, orally at a dose of 100 mg per day from Day 3 of pregnancy were killed on Day 12 or 13, 83% of the conceptuses showed fetal resorption.… Expand
Embryocidal action of a bis(dichloroacetyl)-diamine: an oral abortifacient for rats.
It is demonstrated that for rats N,N'-bis(dischloroacetyl)-1,8-octamethylenediamine (Win 18,446) is a highly efficient embryocidal N,N'-bis(dichloroacetyl)-1,8-octamethylenediamine It was… Expand
In vitro assessment of antimicrobial agents against Toxoplasma gondii.
We have modified a method of quantitating growth of Toxoplasma organisms by measuring incorporation of [3H]uracil into Toxoplasma-infected, differentiated L6E9 rat myocytes and have found that… Expand
Normal levels of zinc and sulfhydryls in morphologically abnormal populations of spermatozoa from moderately zinc‐deficient rats
Zinc is required for spermatogenesis in mammals and is concentrated in the dense outer fibers of the sperm tail, where it is associated with cysteine-rich protein. To investigate the effects of… Expand
