Hypoxia and hypovolemia result in similar ultrastructural changes. These changes are characterized by aggregation of platelets and leukocytes in the vascular space, focal endothelial cell disruption, and appearance of increased amounts of perivascular edema, and loss of ultrastructural organization of the mucosal cell. These changes appear to relate to(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was detected by assay of reverse transcriptase activity in a "virus pellet" obtained by differential sucrose density centrifugation of cell-free semen from three patients with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), one individual with AIDS-related complex (ARC), and in an asymptomatic homosexual male.

Sperm adsorbed with retrovirus particles were recovered from the epididymis of apparently normal male mice. Epididymal semen from all four mouse strains examined was positive for retrovirus (10(5) to 10(8) particles per microgram of protein) indicating that epididymal fluids and sperm may be important vehicles for murine retrovirus spread. Immunoblot(More)
The placenta of the Indian elephant is incompletely annular and zonary macroscopically and occupies the equator of an ovoid chorioallantoic sac. The amnion is fused with the chorion over the zone. Microscopically, the placenta is labyrinthine and endotheliochorial with a rudimentary marginal hematoma. Both macroscopically and microscopically it resembles(More)
The present study demonstrates that a 2 hr period of sustained hypoxia results in a focally destructive process, a process which resolves by 5 days. That the changes described in earlier work are not overwhelming to the animal suggest that an early, focal, and reversible stage of the development of acute enterocolitis in the puppy can be described with the(More)
