The possibility of inducing resistance to bitter rot (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides), brown rot (Monilinia fructicola), and green mold (Penicillium digitatum) in apples, peaches, and tangerines, respectively, by treating them with ultraviolet light-C (UV-C light) at the stem end in a stationary position without rotation was investigated. This approach was(More)
We have studied the composition of the monoand sesquiterpenoids of the oleoresin of the Sakhalin spruce (Picea glehnii, Mast.) collected in 1974 in the Korsakov leskhoz [Forestry farm] (Sakhalin). After the working up of the oleoresin (1.75 kg), fractions of monoterpene hydrocarbons (137 g), monoterpene alcohols (8.4 g), sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (10.5 g),(More)
Forty-five patients with oral or pharyngeal swellings were subjected to fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the mucosal surface over eight years. The age of the patients ranged from 2 to 85 years. The male:female ratio was 25:20. The common sites of involvement were palate (16 cases), cheek (9), pharynx (7) and tonsillar/peritonsillar area (6).(More)
The long-term effectiveness of soil solarization integrated with (integration of pest management [IPM]) a biological control agent (Trichoderma virens), chemical fungicide (pentachloronitrobenzene [PCNB]), organic amendment (chicken litter) or physical method (black agriplastic mulch) to reduce southern blight (Sclerotium rolfsii) and southern root-knot(More)
A 45-yr-old female presented with a left upper cervical swelling of 4 yr duration. The clinical suspicion of carotid body tumor (CBT) was confirmed by imaging findings, fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology, and histology of the resected tumor. Review of our experience with four cases including the present one during 10 yr (1984-1994) showed that the age of(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnosis of two pathologies, including a neoplasm and infectious condition, by fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology in the same patient is rare. CASE A 2-year-old, male child presented with fever, abdominal pain and abdominal mass. Imaging findings were strongly in favor of a neuroblastoma. FNA smears from the mass revealed fecal material(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the utility of indigenously prepared cell blocks (CBs) as an adjunct to a conventional smear test in providing a reliable diagnosis of clinically suspicious cervical cancer in resource-limited settings. METHODS Eighty-six clinically suspicious cervical cancer cases underwent a conventional smear test, CB preparation from residual(More)
We have previously studied the monoand sesqulterpene hydrocarbons [i] and the diterpenoids and resin acids [2] of the oleoresin of Picea koraiensi8 Nakai (Korean spruce). Continuing our investigation of the oleoresin, we have determined the composition of the fraction of monoand sesquiterpenoids obtained by fractional distillation of the oxygen-contalning(More)
