Pulmonary involvement in disseminated lymphosarcoma is comparatively common. Vieta and Craver (1941) found an incidence of nearly 25% by radiographic assessment in a series of 239 patients with lymphosarcoma* and a similar proportion of a smaller number coming to necropsy. This figure agrees closely with the post-mortem incidence reported by Robbins (1953)(More)
Ma-Xing-Gan-Shi-Tang (MXGST), a traditional Chinese medicine, has been used in treatment of the bronchial asthma for several centuries. However, the therapeutic mechanisms of this Chinese medicine are still far from clear. To understand the mechanism of anti-asthmatic property of MXGST, a guinea pig model of allergic asthma was used to investigate the(More)
San-Ao-Tang (SAT), a traditional Chinese medicines, has been used to treat patients with the bronchial asthma for several centuries. However, the therapeutic mechanisms of this Chinese medicine are still far from clear. To understand the mechanism of antiasthmatic property of SAT, a guinea pig model of allergic asthma was used to investigate the effects of(More)
In a series of 584 patients undergoing coronary bypass, 425 patients received Y-grafts, sequential grafts, or a combination of the two. The saphenous veins from the legs frequently had Y- or double Y-branches suitable for bypasses. As many as 5 grafts have been served satisfactorily by a single proximal anastomosis. Simultaneous procedures included 45 left(More)
By using a genomic probe, DNA hybridization for adenovirus type 41 (Ad41) showed equivalent sensitivity with a direct spot method from clinical specimens compared with a more laborious DNA phenol extraction procedure. By using this direct spot preparation method, fecal specimens of 67 patients were examined under code for blind testing for the presence of(More)
Ten isolates of herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and nine isolates of HSV type 2 were tested against virus-induced (alpha), fibroblast (beta), and mitogen-induced (gamma) preparations of human interferon (HuIFN). HSV type 2 was slightly more sensitive and HSV type 1 somewhat less sensitive to all three preparations of HuIFN than Sindbis and vesicular(More)
