The variability in time on onset and progression of puberty warrants the use of stage of sexual maturation rather than chronologic age in assessing biological and behavioral measures during adolescence.

This paper describes an in-vitro-method for the autoradiographical determination of the cell cycle of erythroblasts (rat, mouse, and man). The bone marrow cells were incubated (37° C) for two hours in autologous or homologous plasma containing H3- and C14-thymidine respectively. For determination of DNA synthesis time the double labeling technique, for(More)
The Infant Health and Development Program is a national collaborative study to test the efficacy of combining early child development and family support services with pediatric follow-up to reduce the incidence of health and developmental problems among low birth weight, preterm infants in eight medical school sites. Its efficacy in enhancing intellectual(More)
