The venom apparatus of Ethmostigmus rubripes, a generalized predator, consists of the telopodites of the postcephalic segment, the basal article of w which contains the venom gland. Within the gland, venom granules are concentrated in intracellular secretory granules, from which they are discharged into vacuoles in the cytoplasm of the secretory cells and(More)
Notexin, a well known neurotoxin, derived from tiger snake venom, was shown to have direct nephrotoxic properties in experimental mice. A single subcutaneous dose of 1.38 micrograms/kg body weight of notexin produced renal tubular and glomerular damage within 24 hours. Renal damage increased in severity proportional to the dose of notexin injected. At a(More)
Using Immuno-Mycologics (IMMY; Norman, Okla.) histoplasmal yeast (HY) and mycelial (HM) antibody complement fixation test antigens, we retested 1,386 samples that were initially tested with Meridian Diagnostics, Inc. (Cincinnati, Ohio), antigens. Histoplasmal antibody was identified (.1:16) in 20% ofHY and 5% of HM samples reported to have titers of <1:8(More)
The preferential expression of anti-As antibodies in the allotype a1 of heterozygous a1a3 rabbits immunized with As-TMA-BSA has been investigated by means of quantitative methods. The average content of the anti-As antibodies in a1 and a3 allotypes was 84 and 11%, respectively; the analogous values for anti-TMA antibodies were 41 and 56%, and for anti-BSA(More)
A patient with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the stomach developed microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia, thrombocytopenia, renal insufficiency, and fluctuating neurological abnormalities in association with appreciably raised plasma concentrations of immune complexes. This syndrome, similar to thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, occurred while the tumour was(More)
Aipysurus laevis venom has been shown to have a direct nephrotoxic effect in mice. A single subcutaneous injection (0.075 mg/kg body wt.) of the whole venom caused acute renal tubular degeneration and proliferative glomerulonephritis. The tubular changes appeared within 1 hour and remained for at least 14 days. Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis(More)
