Children can be exposed to lead from a variety of environmental sources. It has been repeatedly reported that children of employees in a lead-related industry are at increased risk of lead absorption because of the high levels of lead found in the household dust of these workers. A case-control study was done in Oklahoma in 1978 to determine whether(More)
A study was conducted to determine the prevalence of Brucella canis antibodies in specified groups based on their exposure to dogs. The method used was a microtiter technique, and the presence of antibodies at a 1:12 or greater dilution of serum was considered a positive test. Eleven (5.7%) of the newborn infants had evidence of maternal antibodies, and(More)
The Tulsa Registry of Canine and Feline Neoplasms was the second animal tumor registry in the United States concerned with a defined population in a delimited geographic area. Only tumors histologically confirmed by registry pathologists were included in frequency statistics based on the annual dog and cat population presented to veterinarians. During the(More)
To allow shelf-life prediction of a range of products, the Seafood Spoilage Predictor (SSP) software has been developed to include both kinetic models for growth of specific spoilage microorganisms and empirical relative rates of spoilage models. SSP can read and evaluate temperature profile data of different formats and in this way the software is a(More)
Evidence from clinical impressions and laboratory slides that spray adhesive products could have a potentially dangerous mutagenic or teratogenic effect was first reported in 1973. However, similar laboratory slides observed by others revealed no significant difference between chromosomal slides of malformed infants and those of normal children in(More)
Direct immunofluorescent monoclonal antibody stain testing for Legionella pneumophila in Oklahoma lake water yielded an unknown bacillus with fluorescence intensity equal to that of L. pneumophila stock strains. The organism in question was identified as Bacillus cereus, a ubiquitous bacterium. When B. cereus cultures were studied, fluorescence was seen in(More)
In order to determine the extent to which Legionella pneumophila antibodies are passively transferred transplacentally into the fetal circulation, 199 matched serums of mothers and their newborn infants were tested using the indirect fluorescent polyclonal antibody technique. Considering L. pneumophila antibody titers of greater than or equal to 1:64 as(More)
