The clinical efficacy of using specially trained nurses to treat hypertension at the patient's place of work was compared in a controlled trial with management by the patient's family doctor. The 457 study participants were selected from 21 906 volunteers in industry and government whose blood-pressure was screened. The nurses were allowed to prescribe and(More)
The middle-size (M) genomic RNA of a New York State, U.S.A. isolate of La Crosse (LAC) virus has been cloned by a random priming procedure and its nucleotide sequence determined by the dideoxy method. The RNA was found to be 4526 nucleotides in length and to have a base composition of 34.2% U, 27.8% A, 20.6% C and 17.4% G. There is a single, long open(More)
The complete nucleotide sequences of the small (S) genomic RNA segments of five California (CAL) serogroup bunyaviruses (two Inkoo virus strains, San Angelo virus, Serra do Navio virus, South River virus and Tahyna virus) were determined. In agreement with previously published data concerning CAL serogroup viruses, the nucleocapsid (N) and non-structural(More)
RNA excess hybridization experiments were used to measure the complexity of nuclear RNA, poly(A+) mRNA, poly(A-) mRNA, and EDTA-released polysomal RNA sedimenting at less than 80 S in mouse liver and in cultured mouse cells. With both cell types, poly(A-) RNA was found to contain 30-40% of the sequence diversity of total mRNA. In the case of liver this(More)
Initial RNA excess hybridization experiments employing total cell RNA and the complete complement of nonrepetitive DNA sequences showed no differences between normal and regenerating rat liver. However, when the DNA from the RNA-DNA hybrids was isolated and then reacted with homologous and heterologous RNAs the sensitivity of the assay was sufficiently(More)
A highly sensitive nucleic acid hybridization assay was used to compare the extent of nonrepetitive DNA transcription in rat liver between the ages of two and ten months. The basic approach consisted on initially purifying the DNA expressed in liver at these ages and then using it in reactions with homologous and heterologous RNAs. Such experiments failed(More)
