A mammary tumor-associated antigen (MTAA) of the murine mammary tumor virus (MuMTV)-induced spontaneous mammary tumors of C3H/J mice was purified and partially characterized. The crude extract of the mammary tumor, when subjected to DEAE-cellulose chromatography and eluted with a discontinuous NaCl gradient, provided three major protein peaks, of which only(More)
Circulating immune complexes (IC) in the sera of patients with oral cancer have been measured by using polyethylene glycol (PEG) precipitation assay. At least 60% of patients with carcinomatous buccal mucosa were found to have markedly higher amounts of IC. Results have been discussed in view of other types of cancer and the various methods used for the(More)
BACKGROUND The management of complicated parapneumonic effusions (CPE) and empyema by chest tube drainage usually fails because of thick viscous fluid and multiple pleural space loculations. The use of intrapleural fibrinolytic agents facilitates pleural drainage and can obviate the need for more invasive surgical interventions in these types of effusions.(More)
A two-year-old girl presented with regression of developmental milestones for the last three and a half months. She was diagnosed as HIV-positive, but her CD4 count was found to be normal. Computed tomography (CT) scan of her brain showed bilateral basal ganglia calcification with cortical atrophy. A final diagnosis of HIV encephalopathy was made which had(More)
A series of twenty-four alkylphosphonium salts were prepared and evaluated as potential antitumor agents in vivo against Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC). Eleven compounds were screened in vivo against lymphoid leukemia L1210 and one against lymphocytic leukemia P388. Out of these, three compounds exhibited mild antitumor activity against EAC. Twenty(More)
The sensitivities of normal and preneoplastic rat hepatocytes have been tested against four organotin hydroxamates in vitro. These organotin hydroxamates are soluble in lipids but not in aqueous medium. The solubility in lipid had initially been utilized in the pilot experiments with Ehrlich ascites tumor cells containing lipids in the ascites fluid.(More)
Levels of follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone and prolactin were evaluated in 52 cases of postpill amenorrhea at the Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research, Calcutta, India. All 52 patients had experienced amenorrhea for one year since discontinuation of oral contraceptive therapy. The incidence of postpill amenorrhea was(More)
