We have selected for a variant line of MCF-7 which may help to understand this process. The variant was selected by exposing MCF-7 cells to high-specific-activity 16 alpha-[125I]iodoestradiol. These cells were viably(More)

Three blood pressure measurements per patient, one per device, were taken over 25 minutes. Of 99 patients, 95 had complete blood pressure data. Systolic blood pressures measured(More)
Cryoglobulinemia and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma are diseases characterized by B-cell dysregulation and overproduction of antibodies. Vasculitis and cutaneous manifestations are common, but renal involvement is rare. A 65-year-old woman with type 1 cryoglobulinemia and MALT lymphomas of the right lacrimal and parotid glands(More)
