Ring chromosome 15 in a patient with features of Fryns' syndrome
A stillborn male infant with a ring chromosome 15 and some features compatible with Fryns' syndrome is presented. Neither diagnosis is common and the overlap may be of significance.
Regional distribution of dopamine D1 and D2 receptors in the nucleus accumbens of the rat
Dopamine (DA) D1 receptor density was found to be significantly lower in the rostral than in the medial and caudal areas of the nucleus accumbens. This roughly followed the distribution of DA terminals. The distribution ...
Tuberculosis presenting in the neonatal periodd
Tuberculosis presenting during the neonatal period is uncommon, but does occur and may prove fatal if not diagnosed in a timely manner. We describe four such cases and draw attention to urogenital tuberculosis in the mother ...
Effect of rapid dilution of semen on sperm-bound autoantibodies
The effect of rapid dilution of autoantibody-positive semen on sperm-bound antibodies was studied in 12 male patients (0-100% IgA and 10-100% IgG). The direct immunobead test (IBT) and the sperm cervical mucus contact ...
Usefulness of sperm penetration assay in fertility predictions
The competence of the sperm penetration assay (SPA) to predict male fertility, as determined by normal sperm morphology and the fertilizing potential, as shown by human in vitro fertilization (IVF), was investigated. A ...
Use of specific monoclonal antibodies to secretory IgA for the detection of spermatozoal antibodies in serum and seminal plasma by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
The role of anti-sperm secretory IgA has recently received attention since some workers feel it plays an important role in the prognosis of the immunologically infertile couple. Current methods used in our laboratory cannot ...
Effect of sperm washing and swim-up on antibodies bound to sperm membrane: Use of immunobead/sperm cervical mucus contact tests
The direct immunobead test (IBT) and the sperm cervical mucus contact (SCMC) test were used to evaluate the effect of sperm washes and swim-up on antibodies bound to the sperm membrane in 11 patients with autosperm antibodies ...
Antisperm antibody tests: traditional methods compared to ELISA
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) to detect sperm antibodies can be a useful addition to other tests. ELISAs allow more quantitative and detailed information than some other tests, but results should be compared ...
The relationship of anticardiolipin antibodies to disease activity in systemic lupus erythematosus
Sera from 124 blood donors, 60 rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 57 SLE patients were measured for anticardiolipin antibodies by ELISA. Significantly raised IgG (aCLG) and IgM (aCLM) anticardiolipin antibody levels were found ...
Analysis of vitamin B6 vitamers in human tissue by cation-exchange high-performance liquid chromatography
This publication reports the modification of existing methodology to analyse vitamin B6 vitamers in human erythrocytes, mononuclear cells (MNCs) and human liver biopsy tissue. It further reports for the first time a complete ...
