Simple energy-balance climate models of the Budyko/Sellers type predict that a small (2-5%) decrease in solar output could result in runaway glaciation on the Earth. But solar fluxes 25-30% lower early in the Earth's history apparently did not lead to this result. One currently favoured explanation is that high partial ...

This study compared two techniques of amalgam condensation for effect on early microleakage. Class V preparations were restored with a high-copper amalgam using pneumatic condensation or conventional hand condensation. Significantly less microleakage was observed when pneumatic condensation was used. Further, pneumatic condensation proved equally effective in reducing early microleakage whether ...

Alloreactive T levels of para-aortic lymph nodes (PALN) and spleen were determined on different days of pregnancy in BALB/c females by local and systemic graft-versus-host (GvH) assays. A significant increase in GvH reactivity was registered early in both allogeneic and syngeneic matings, operating not only towards paternal but also towards ...
Natelson E A - - 1985
A 29-year-old woman developed thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura on two occasions, each with onset at about the 13th week of gestation. Despite therapy during each episode with corticosteroids, platelet aggregation-modifying agents and repeated plasmapheresis, she experienced only transient improvement. In both instances, however, prompt hematologic recovery followed evacuation of the uterus. ...

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura during pregnancy in which both mother and fetus have survived has been an exceedingly rare occurrence, due at least in part to the difficulty in distinguishing this uncommon disease from hematologic complications of preeclampsia. In the nonpregnant patient, the use of plasma infusion or exchange plasmapheresis as ...
Upshaw J D JD - - 1985
We present three cases of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and one case of the hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) occurring during pregnancy. All patients and their offspring survived, and none of the infants had TTP or HUS. Plasma manipulations (exchange and infusions) were the effective therapeutic measures in all patients. The most ...

Several basic empirical facts are emphasized about human developmental oncology. The first is that teratogenesis and oncogenesis are intimately related and that indeed teratogenesis may be the more primitive reaction to the types of mutagenic injury giving rise to neoplasm. The second is that neoplasms of early life, particularly those ...

Eight pregnancies complicated by immunologic thrombocytopenic purpura are described and the literature is reviewed. We conclude that, while steroid treatment favorably influenced fetal platelet counts in our cases, overall experience with this disease indicates that such protection is incomplete in some cases and unnecessary in others. Antiplatelet antibody levels show ...
Atlas M - - 1982
A 20 week primigravida with intrauterine fetal death and the rare occurrence of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) in pregnancy is presented. Aprotinin has been used to overcome uterine inertia non-responsive to oxytocin stimulation. TTP was successfully treated with repeated plasmaphereses. The literature is briefly reviewed and the complexity and importance ...

The clinical teratogenicity of the new antileukemic chemotherapeutic agents administered to mothers early in the first trimester of pregnancy is not well defined. Cytarabine and thioguanine were given in identical doses to the same mother during the first trimester of two separate pregnancies. Both pregnancies resulted in viable babies, one ...
Whitfield M F - - 1980
A third case of chondrodysplasia punctata after exposure to warfarin alone in early pregnancy is described. The clinical course of the child during the first 18 months is outlined. The use of warfarin in early pregnancy must be avoided because of its established teratogenic effects in causing this syndrome, in ...
Yang C - - 1979
A 24-year-old Chinese female developed fever, fluctuating neurological and renal manifestations, microangopathic hemolytic anemia, and thrombocytopenia during the 11th week of her first pregnancy. Therapy for thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), initiated during the 15th week of her pregnancy, including corticosteroids, platelet aggregation inhibitors, hysterotomy, and splenectomy was ineffective. However, dramatic ...

The contributions made by metatarsus primus varus, medial subluxation of the navicular, and angulation of the neck of the talus to the residual deformity in treated club feet were assessed from radiographs. Their relation to the appearance of the feet, to the age of the patient, to the results of ...
Rutkow I M - - 1978
Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is a disease process characterized by microangiopathic anemia, fever, neurologic manifestations, renal abnormalities, and thrombocytopenia. These clinical findings are caused by vascular occlusions of the microcirculation. At present the utilization of splenectomy, in the treatment of this illness, remains a highly controversial subject. However, review of ...

Finger and palm print patterns (dermatoglyphs) are formed in very early pregnancy, at about the same time the limbs are developing, and their formation probably depends upon the surface contours of the palms and soles during morphogenesis. Dermatoglyphs are useful in skeletal dysplasias for the detection and study of syndactyly ...
Fitzgibbons J F - - 1977
When thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) occurs in pregnancy, survival of either the mother or fetus is exceedingly rare. A patient is reported who developed this disease in the 17th week of pregnancy and recovered after treatment with antiplatelet drugs (aspirin, dipyridamole) and corticosteroids. The rationale and potential hazards of antiplatelet ...
Robinson E T - - 1977
The value of the signs and symptoms of pregnancy and of the pregnancy diagnostic test as predictors of pregnancy was estimated for 1,592 women seen in general practice. The presence of a sign or symptom alone is a poor pointer to a diagnosis of pregnancy. The combination of pairs of ...
