The Biochemical Society exists to advance the science of biochemistry through meetings and publications. Eleven meetings a year are held, each at a different place; original papers are presented and special topics are discussed at symposia and colloquia. Persons interested in biochemistry are eligible for election as Members. Details of further facilities(More)
Serum levels of immunoglobulins (Ig) G, M, and A were determined in 28 women with an additional X-chromosome (XXX), and in equal numbers of age-matched normal women and men. Mean IgM levels were found to be highest in the XXX group, intermediate in normal women, and lowest in men; these differences were statistically significant. Mean IgM values obtained(More)
Serum antibodies to double-stranded 'native' DNA have been measured in acute and chronic liver diseases using the Farr technique. Elevated levels of DNA binding were found in all groups of patients, with the highest levels in acute viral hepatitis and lowest in primary biliary cirrhosis. All patients with hepatitis B surface antigen-positive chronic active(More)
Abnormalities of cell-mediated immunity-anergy to delayed hypersensitivity skin testing, diminished T-lymphocyte concentrations and mitogen responsiveness, and the presence of serum inhibitors--have been shown to be present in patients with portal venous obstruction and normal hepatic function. In contrast, tests of humoral immunity--antibody titiers to(More)
The Health Physics Measurements Group at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has initiated a study of neutron reference fields at selected US Department of Energy (DOE) calibration facilities. To date, field characterisation has been completed at five facilities. These fields are traceable to the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST)(More)
A case history is presented of the occurrence of a high binding capacity for native DNA in the serum of a patient on phenylbutazone. This reverted to normal on stopping the drug. The patient also had a reversible neutropenia and leucopenia, and it is suggested that the high anti-DNA binding capacity was a feature of a drug-induced lupus-like phenomenon.
