Cytomegalovirus (CMV) has long been associated with myelosuppression. Evidence for this association has been provided from in vitro studies, statistical analysis of clinical studies, informative case reports, and murine models. Reports differ as to how CMV mediates myelosuppression. Some data indicate direct infection of hematopoietic progenitors and their progeny, others ...

In contrast to the estimated low incidence of crossed aphasia in dextral adults (among 1%), crossed aphasia in children has been considered a common finding for almost a century. However, reviewing the literature on crossed aphasia in dextrals (CAD) and its related topics from 1975 onward, we encountered only 5 ...

We report on the possibility of identification by EPR spectroscopy of some irradiated cellulose-containing foodstuffs, at a relatively long time after the irradiation, when the characteristic EPR spectral lines of the cellulose free radical have essentially disappeared. In such cases rather expensive and time-consuming methods (e.g. thermoluminescence analysis) have to ...

This article examines the case history writings of Milton Erickson as literary texts. A deconstructive analysis reveals that the modernist assumption of therapist as magical healer disguises the role clients play in their own change. Hypothetically constructed case transcripts contrasted with excerpts from Erickson (see Rossi, 1980) illustrate how the ...

We present our theory of trichotillomania (hair pulling) as a manic phenomenon, complementary to its classic comprehension as a mourning response. Under certain conditions, separation or threat of separation can generate sadness or grief, while in pathological cases, when the loss is experienced as unbearable, the response might be depressive ...

The detection, storage, and analysis of gas taken from the heart ventricle is necessary to diagnose a fatal air embolism and this requires special precautions during autopsy. When the results of gas analysis correspond to the criteria defined by Pierucci and Gherson the diagnosis "air embolism" is justified. In cases ...
