Isolating individual populations of cells from post-mortem (PM) central nervous system (CNS) tissue for transcriptomic analysis will provide important insights into the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. To date, research on individual CNS cell populations has been hindered by the availability of suitable PM material, unreliable sample preparation(More)
Resistance to the facultative intracellular bacteria, Brucella abortus and Listeria monocytogenes, is principally the result of acquisition of enhanced antibacterial activity by host macrophages, probably in response to lymphokines released by T lymphocytes. However, the present paper describes a surprisingly high resistance on the part of both congenitally(More)
The effect of fluoride ingestion on plasma and urinary cyclic AMP levels was studied in healthy volunteers, children undergoing prophylactic fluoride treatment and in rats. In the first series of experiments fluoride ingestion led to a 20-fold increase in plasma fluoride concentration, which was unrelated to changes in plasma cyclic AMP. The only(More)
By PHILIP LEVINE, M.D., AND R. K. WALLER, M.D. A a result of our knowledge of the pathogenesis of erythroblastosis fetalis, a new diagnostic procedure, testing for the Rh factor, has been made available.” 2 Another outcome of the early work was the recommendation3 that human anti-Rh agglutinins derived from mothers of erythroblastotic infants are far(More)
