Human lymphocytes derived from a lymph node draining a primary breast adenocarcinoma were fused with the mouse myeloma P3X63Ag8.653 to generate human-mouse hybridomas secreting human monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to tumor associated antigens (TAAs). One of the resulting human MAbs, YBB 190 (IgM) is described. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA)(More)
INTRODUCTION Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) is a systemic vasculitis that can affect a variety of organs including ear, nose and throat, lungs and kidneys. However WG is unusual in the pituitary and rare in the central nervous system. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 56-year-old male with likely WG presented with polyuria and polydipsia despite six months of(More)
Microscopically Oriented Histologic Surgery (MOHS) has been applied to primary epidermoid cancers of the mucosal tissues of the head and neck since 1979. In that time we have treated 170 patients and maintained excellent records, losing no patients to follow-up. One hundred three patients have been followed for 2 years. Of this group, only nine patients(More)
Frozen section directed surgery, called MOHS, has been successfully utilized in the resection of primary epidermoid tumors of the head and neck. For the 93 cases reviewed in this study, 70% had microscopically identified tumor 1 cm away from clinically evident disease. Tumor spread was along planes of least resistance, most commonly in the submucosa.(More)
One possible mechanism for neurohumoral activation after myocardial infarction may be the generation of an immune response against cardiac self-antigens. We hypothesize that if there is a T cell-mediated reaction to self-antigens, the transfer of splenic lymphocytes from postinfarct rats into syngeneic rats with normal hearts should result in a T(More)
Bone wax is an effective hemostatic agent that generally is considered safe. However, because it is nonabsorbable, significant complications can occur. We present the first two reported cases of delayed migration and extrusion of bone wax through postauricular wounds due to foreign body reaction and granuloma formation following mastoid surgery. We also(More)
