Results of the previous investigation in which it was found that DNA extracted from D29 mycobacteriophage was infectious for Mycobacterium smegmatis 607, have been extended. DNA extracted from mycobacteriophage D4 and D32 produced plaques when plated on their respective hosts; D28 DNA, extracted in the same manner and tested under similar conditions, failed(More)
To test hypotheses that women suffering from some form of eating disorder would experience lower self-esteem and higher depression and that women with lower self-esteem and greater depression would rate their attractiveness lower and see themselves as heavier than less depressed individuals, 42 college undergraduate women were individually administered the(More)
In 1885 Ehrlich (1) discovered that when coerulein-s, an acidic dye, was injected subcutaneously into experimental animals, various organs were stained but the brain was left entirely uncolored. In 1913 Goldman (2) performed a series of now classical experiments which established the concept of the blood-brain barrier. After injecting trypan blue(More)

The inhalation of CO(2) exerted a selective action on the entry of viruses into the CNS of mice via the circulation. In 6 wk old animals, the infectivity of poliovirus, vaccinia, and vesicular stomatitis viruses was enhanced, whereas the entry of herpesviruses and of a neurotropic influenza virus was not affected. However, in 3 to 4 wk old mice, inhalation(More)
Inhalation of elevated concentrations of CO(2) produces a significant increase in the susceptibility of mice to intravenously inoculated Type II poliovirus. The CO(2) effect is directly proportional to the concentration; 2.5 minutes inhalation of a mixture of 30 per cent CO(2)-70 per cent O(2) produces maximal effects, while lower concentrations of CO(2)(More)
