Surveillance and control of staphylococcic infections in a maternity unit.
An 84-bed community general hospital with approximately 4,000 admissions and 750 live births per year became aware of a problem of staphylococcic infections when a 2-day-old baby developed a paronychial abscess in 1957, and extraordinary efforts were made to eradicate all sources of infection and to eliminate errors of technique.

Subacute bacterial endocarditis due to Flavobacterium meningosepticum.
The first case of subacute bacterial endocarditis due to Flavobacterium meningosepticum, type F, is reported from a 30-year-old Mexican man with a history of rheumatic heart disease. Expand
Identification and partial purification of "transcortin"-like protein within human lymphocytes.
Results show for the first time the existence of cortisol-binding proteins within the human lymphocyte antigenically identical with transcortin. Expand
Pulmonary lesions induced by long-term exposure to ozone. II. Ultrastructure observations of proliferative and regressive lesions.
A tumor-resistant strain of 10-week-old Swiss-Webster mice exposed to an ozone concentration of 2.5 ppm for two hours daily for 120 days showed progressive metaplasia toward a squamoid epithelium containing many cytoplasmic secretory vesicles, with accompanying decrease in number of ciliated cells.

Protein synthesis in human leukocytes and lymphocytes: 1. Effect of steroids and sterols.
The results presented support the hypothesis that the inhibition of lymphocyte protein synthesis by steroid hormones occurs only when the steroid is bound to a plasma protein. Expand
Placenta, transcortin, and localized immune response.
This purified protein is able to block the phytohemagglutinin response of maternal lymphocytes even more than serum transcortin, and it is postulated that the biological role may be that of inhibiting the maternal cell-mediated immune response to the presence of the antigenic conceptus. Expand
Use of streptomycin and cyclic adenosine 5'-monophosphate in the isolation of mutants deficient in CAP protein.
A method is described for selective isolation of mutants deficient in CAP protein necessary for the expression of catabolite-sensitive operons in Escherichia coli.
The response of leukemic lymphocytes to cortisol: a suggested role of transcortin.
The results obtained from these experiments indicated that the magnitude of the effect of cortisol on the synthesis of lymphocyte protein was directly related to the transcortin level of the plasma employed. Expand
Streptomycin lethality and cyclic AMP.
At higher concentrations of streptomycin, glucose and ATP prolonged and glycerol and cyclic AMP shortened the lag before the cells began to lose their viability, and ATP protected the cells against the bactericidal effect of the drug allowing them to grow normally. Expand
