Analysis of bronchoalveolar lavage cellular constituents has been recommended as a valuable method for the characterization of the inflammatory cellular population and for studying cellular interactions in the lower respiratory tract of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). However, the clinical relevance of the enumeration of cells in(More)
The propensity of systemic beta-adrenergic blockers to cause bronchoconstriction in patients with reactive airway disease is well recognized. A study was carried out to determine the prevalence of sensitivity to ophthalmic timolol in 24 asthmatic subjects at our institution and to determine the effect of ophthalmic betaxolol, a cardioselective beta-blocker(More)
PURPOSE It is likely that the relationship between lung volume changes and gas exchange in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and patients with sarcoidosis is different since the two conditions vary widely in histopathology and prognosis. Few studies, however, have examined this relationship. The goal of this investigation was to measure(More)
Septic arthritis is a serious and sometimes fatal complication of rheumatoid arthritis. We have examined the clinical characteristics of 16 patients with infectious arthritis seen during an eight-year period. This represented 0.5% of all admissions to our hospital for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Although rheumatoid arthritis is considered a(More)
A solid-phase radioimmunoassay for measuring neutrophil elastase in the range 0.08-4 ng/ml has been developed. A monospecific, precipitating antibody capable of inhibiting elastinolysis was produced by repeated immunizations of a goat. The IgG fraction and affinity-purified antibodies of this serum were then obtained and used to develop this(More)

Lymphomatoid granulomatosis is a lymphoproliferative process affecting multiple organ systems usually including the lungs. Significant gastrointestinal involvement, however, has rarely been reported. Pathologic examination reveals a vasocentric polymorphous lymphoid infiltrate. A case of lymphomatoid granulomatosis with gastrointestinal manifestations(More)
