METHODS The cohort comprised civilians employed for at least one year between 1952 and 1956, of whom 5727 had died by 31 December 1990. Analyses compared the(More)
BACKGROUND Studies of survival following breast and ovarian cancers in BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutation carriers have yielded conflicting results. We undertook an analysis of a community-based study of Ashkenazi Jews to investigate the effect of three founder mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 on survival among patients with breast or ovarian cancer.

Serum acetylcholine receptor antibodies were measured serially in myasthenia gravis patients before and after early extended thymectomy; they received no medication postoperatively. Clinical improvement occurred with little or no change in antibody level. After plasmapheresis without immunosuppressive drug therapy, we also found clinical improvement without(More)
Antibody titers to the acetylcholine receptor (AChR) from patients with myasthenia gravis, in identical serum samples, were directly compared using denervated rat, human, and baboon muscle as the source of AChR antigen for radioimmunoassay (RIA). Calculations were standardized by using binding isotherms for each antigen source and calculating the percentage(More)
Candy bar-like protein supplements are sometimes consumed for their sugar alcohol content, which lowers the glycemic response. The purpose of this study was to determine the acute glycemic and blood lipid response to the ingestion of a candy bar-like protein supplement compared with its candy bar counterpart. In a crossover design, 5 males and 5 females (N(More)
