Adults are often better at recognising own-race than other-race faces. Unlike previous studies that reported an own-race advantage after administering a single test of either holistic processing or of featural and relational processing, we used a cross-over design and multiple tasks to assess differential processing of faces from a familiar race versus a(More)
Oxygen consumption and heart rate were measured during treadmill walking and during walking in deep water in a group of women and in a group of men. In both groups predicted maximum oxygen uptakes were similar on land as in the water. However, there were obvious individual differences in the responses to land versus water exercise. These differences suggest(More)
Bile and serum cholesterol concentrations were analyzed by the same saponification, extraction and gas chromatographic procedure, utilizing stigmasterol as an internal standard and trifluoroacetate derivatization. The method was rapid and highly sensitive, requiring only 20 to 50 mul of sample. Comparable levels of precision were achieved by parallel(More)
Allergy resulting from exposure to latex proteins has been reported with increasing frequency in certain patient and occupational groups. Patients with latex allergy demonstrate cross-reactivity with some food allergens. Although amino acid homology of a few polypeptides from food and latex have been reported, no information is available comparing food and(More)
A monoclonal antibody was produced against a Concanavalin A (Con A) binding major epitope of Aspergillus fumigatus using a novel method of immunization. The antigen was purified using monoclonal antibody affinity chromatography reacted with specific antibodies present in human sera. Both allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and aspergilloma showed high(More)
BACKGROUND There has been considerable variability reported in latex extracts used for skin testing and the results of those skin tests in the evaluation of latex allergy. Some test extracts have been associated with the induction of anaphylactic reactions in sensitive patients, while others have been reported as without adverse reactions. OBJECTIVE The(More)
Hypersensitivity pneumonitis resulting from environmental exposure to Saccharopolyspora rectivirgula (Micropolyspora faeni) among farmers has been well recognized. The diagnosis of the disease depends on demonstration of circulating antibodies against S. rectivirgula. However, dependable pure antigens are not available for serodiagnosis. In the present(More)
