[A clinical study on cases with pulmonary M. avium complex (MAC) disease followed up for more than 10 years].
We performed a clinical study on 22 cases with pulmonary M. avium complex disease followed up for more than 10 years. The mean age of these patients at the first visit was 60.1 years old and theExpand

Immunologic Features of Mice with Streptozotocin-induced Diabetes: Depression of Their Immune Responses to Sheep Red Blood Cells
The immune responsiveness in streptozotocin (SZ)-induced diabetic mice was studied using the immune responses to sheep red blood cells (SRBC) as an indicator system. In SZ-diabetic mice, the weightsExpand

Immunopotentiation with forphenicinol: increased resistance to Pseudomonas septicaemia in mice.
UMEZAWA et al. found that forphenicine, isolated from culture filtrates of Actinomycetes fulvoviridis var. acarbodicus is a specific inhibitor against chicken intestine alkaline phosphatase and itExpand

Inhibition and promotion of tumor growth by BCG: Evidence for stimulation of humoral enhancing factors by BCG
Effects of pretreatment with BCG, strain Japan, on tumor growth were studied using a transplantable methylcholanthrene (MCA)‐induced fibro‐sarcoma in C3H/He mice. Injection of BCG 7 weeks beforeExpand

Experimental Pseudomonas infection in mice: effect of single cyclophosphamide administration on Pseudomonas infection.
The kinetic effect of cyclophosphamide (CY) was investigated using the immune response to sheep red blood cells (SRBC), activation of the mononuclear macrophage system and altered susceptibity toExpand

Reduced resistance to Pseudomonas septicaemia in diabetic mice.
Antibacterial resistance in a diabetic state was studied using experimental Pseudomonas infection in streptozotocin (SZ) induced diabetic mice. The results obtained were as follows: (1) there was noExpand

Mode of immunopotentiating action of BCG: macrophage activation produced by BCG-infection.
Macrophage activation as measured by increased rate of carbon clearance and spreading of peritoneal macrophage was studied in mice infected with BCG, strain Japan. BCG caused marked increase of theExpand

Distant metastasis facilitated by BCG: spread of tumour cells injected in the BCG-primed site.
Tumour metastasis in BCG-pretreated mice was studied using a methylcholanthrene-induced fibrosarcoma in C3H/He mice. When tumour cells were injected into the BCG-primed site, distant metastasisExpand
