Having previously established the specificity of a newly developed radiolabeled polyclonal anti fibrin antibody (AFA) for tagging fibrin depositions, clinical experiments for validation of this agent for imaging deep vein thromboses (DVT) were carried out in comparison with labeled human serum albumin (HSA) and labeled platelets. Patients with DVT were(More)
The uptake of tritiated thymidine by isolated peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from male guinea pigs immunized with bovine serum albumin was studied in animals maintained on various amounts of Vitamin C for 28 days. Animals were pair-fed on ascorbate-free diet and were supplemented intraperitoneally with 0, 25, or 250 mg Na-ascorbate per day. Scorbutic(More)
Male and female guinea pigs receiving, respectively, 100 and 280 mg/day Vitamin C throughout the duration of immunization showed enhanced humoral antibody production to bovine serum albumin (BSA) and, in castrated females, to penicilloyl-coupled guinea pig gamma-globulin. A significant degree of protection was afforded against fatal anaphylactic shock in(More)
The plasma ascorbate level after a single intraperitoneal dose of 25, 100 or 250 mg Na-ascorbate was followed up in vivo over a period of 24 hours. Intraperitoneal administration of Na-ascorbate caused a rapid increase of ascorbic acid plasma concentration. Maximum ascorbic acid plasma level was obtained 30 minutes after parenteral administration of the(More)
