720 Letters disconnection of intracranial pial single-channel arteriovenous fistulae. Cavernous hemangioma of the central nervous system is a vascular malformation which is a developmental hamartoma, also known as cavernoma or cav-ernous malformation or venous angioma 1. Cavernomas may affect any segment of the neuraxis. Most of these malformations are… (More)
This article briefly discusses the role of the expert physician witness at trial and describes what is emerging as the physician professional witness (AKA hired gun). The trial court's powers to evaluate the professionalism and objectivity of an expert witness are examined in light of a recent Western District Missouri Court of Appeals case. This case,… (More)
A third example of a thimerosal-dependent hemagglutinin is reported. The IgG antibody reacted by antiglobulin or ficin techniques with all cells incubated in the presence of thimerosal, including iadult cells and two examples of the Rhnull phenotype. Agglutination was inhibited by excess thimerosal (5 g/dl).
An IgG autoantibody, named anti-Wj, reacts with all random and most selected red cell samples. It does not agglutinate cells of Lu(a-b-) type caused by the In(Lu) dominant inhibitor gene, but cells of recessive Lu(a-b-) type are reactive. These data establish that synthesis of the Wj antigen is suppressed by the In(Lu) gene, but it is not a part of the… (More)
Chromosomal polymorphism was assessed in the southern short-tailed shrew (Blarina carolinensis) using standard metaphase chromosome and G-banding techniques. Twenty-one animals (11 males, 10 females) from the Meeman Biological Station in Shelby Co., Tennessee, were examined for diploid number. Results showed diploid numbers of 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40 and 41… (More)
Polyagglutination is the term applied to red blood cells (RBCs) that are agglutinated by almost all samples of human sera from adults but not by autologous serum or sera of newborns. The polyagglutinable state may be transient or persistent. Transient polyagglutinability results from the exposure of normally cryptic antigens by bacterial enzymatic activity… (More)
