In this paper we examine the use of the key informant methodology by researchers investigating interorganizational relationships. To increase the reliability of informant reports, the use of multiple informants has often been advocated. However, interorganizational research still tends to rely on single informants. Here, we investigate issues having to do(More)
Constructing scientifically sound samples of hard-to-reach populations, also known as hidden populations, is a challenge for many research projects. Traditional sample survey methods, such as random sampling from telephone or mailing lists, can yield low numbers of eligible respondents while non-probability sampling introduces unknown biases.

Allogeneic lymphocyte cytotoxicity (ALC) refers to the destruction of lymphocyte beginning within a few hours of intravenous injection into non-sensitized, allogeneic recipients. Usually this has been detected in rats and mice by comparing the localization of 51Cr-labelled lymphocytes in the tissues of allogeneic and syngeneic recipients. In a particular(More)
The fate of allogeneic lymphocytes (AO or DA) transferred to non-immune PVG recipients was studied in the light of previous evidence (Heslop & McNeilage, 1983; Rolstad & Ford, 1983) that allogeneic lymphocytes can be rapidly destroyed in certain strain combinations of rats and mice by a mechanism that is distinct from either T-cell mediated immunity or an(More)
The suitability of two radionuclides (99mTc, 111In) for labelling lymphocytes have been evaluated in rats by comparison with a standard method using 51Cr. For the study of lymphocyte migration in patients labelling with 111In-labelled oxine is clearly the most promising because both in vivo and in vitro it remains associated with lymphocytes and the(More)
Clinical studies using indium-111 oxine labelling of human peripheral blood lymphocytes are presented. Data from animal models of lymphocyte migration are compared with results found in healthy subjects and patients with malignant neoplasms. The physiological significance of bone marrow and liver localization on gamma camera imaging is discussed and the(More)
