BACKGROUND Despite concerns about its prevalence and ramifications, harassment has not been well quantified among physicians. Previous published studies have been small, have surveyed only 1 site or a convenience sample, and have suffered from selection bias. METHODS Our database is the Women Physicians' Health Study, a large (4501 respondents; response(More)
A deletion of the albino (c) locus on mouse chromosome 7 has been demonstrated using Q- and G-banding methods in a mouse heterozygous for the radiation-induced lethal albino allele, c(25H). The deletion, which is thought to be 1-6 cM long, represents about 7.6% of the length of the metaphase chromosome.
The pleiotropic effects of six radiation-induced lethal alleles at the albino locus in the mouse include deficiencies of various enzymes and of serum proteins. Closely correlated with the biochemical deficiencies are severe ultrastructural abnormalities of endoplasmic reticulum membranes and the Golgi apparatus in liver and kidney cells. Complementation(More)
A graphical procedure for determining the specific activity of radiolabeled ligands has been developed for use with radioimmunoassays. Although with this procedure we utilize the same experimental information required for displacement analysis, we are also able to determine both the specific activity and the binding constants of the labeled and unlabeled(More)
This paper reviews current knowledge about the prevalence, characteristics, and costs of sexual harassment of women medical students and physicians. It also addresses the limited research on other forms of physician and student harassment, and notes the kinds of information that are still needed.
A new neonatal lethal mutation in the mouse with pleiotropic effects, edematous (oed), arose spontaneoutosomal recessive mode of inheritance. The external phenotypic characteristics include a generally bloated appearance, shiny celophane-like skin, and distal hematomata of the extremities. Internally, no gross or histological abnormalities could be(More)
A deletion of the albsino ( c ) locus on mouse chromosome 7 has been demonstrated using Qand G-banding methods in a mouse heterozygous for the radiation-induced lethal albino allele, c Z ~ H . The deletion, which is thought to be 1-6 cM long, represents about 7.6% of the length of the metaphase chromosome. OMPLEMENTATION studies of a series of(More)
