    Notes: Abstract An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was evaluated for the detection of antibody in sera of equine naturally infected with Histoplasma farciminosum ‘epizootic lymphangitis’. Ten sera from naturally infected horses were tested. A hydrogen peroxide ABTS mixture constituted the substrate. The reactions were read as the absorbance values measured at 405 nm using a spectrophotometer. The standard deviation and the average percentage of the absorbance values of the different serum samples were considered in the interpretation of the results. All sera were proved positive with variations in the different samples. Ground preparation of four weeks old growth of the fungus in a phosphate buffer saline was used as antigen. A peroxidase labeled goat anti-equine IgG was used as a conjugate.

    Notes: Abstract In a prospective study of 560 children treated for burns as in-patients over a period of four-and-a-half years in specialized hospitals responsible for the majority of burn cases in Kuwait, 388 patients (69%) had sustained scalds. The mean age of these 388 children, between 0 to 12 years, was 3.02 ± 2.08, and male to female ratio 1.5 to 1. They were categorized into three age groups, first, up to 1 year comprised 17.5% cases, who were solely dependent on parents or childminder; second, 2 to 5 years of age, who were inquisitive, independent, pre-school children, and constituted the majority of cases (73%), and third 6 to 12 years who were 9.5% school children. The pre-school children (2--5 yrs) thus formed a highly vulnerable group in the country. Accidents (99.4%) occurred at home and the kitchen being the commonest place. The hot water from pan and pots in the kitchen was the most common etiologic factor in 229 cases (59%), followed by tea/coffee 20.7%, soup 9.0%, hot oil 6.7%, and milk 4.6% patients. The most common circumstance was the child upsetting the pan of hot fluid in the kitchen. The mean total body surface areas of second and third degree burns were 14.21 ± 9.66 (range 1 to 60%). The average length of stay in the hospital was 16.90 ± 15.74 days, varying from one to 109 days. Thirty-nine children were ill prior to burn, and the commonest disease was respiratory tract infection. Three patients (0.8%) with 3rd degree burns were treated with primary excision and grafting, and 137 (35.3%) needed secondary skin grafting for residual burn wounds. Four patients (1%) died, one due to burn shock, two due to septicemia and one due to multiorgan failure. There is need for general awareness through public education, which may lead to the prevention of significant number of such accidents.

    Notes: Abstract Purpose: Correlation between aging and doxorubicin-induced congestive heart failure in patients with metastatic breast cancer was studied to determine whether doxorubicin-induced congestive heart failure in elderly patients with metastatic breast cancer is a clinically significant issue. Methods: This was a retrospective study with a median follow-up of 16.8 years. The setting was a comprehensive cancer center in a large city. A group of 682 consecutive patients with metastatic breast cancer presented to The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center between 1973 and 1980. All patients received doxorubicin by bolus infusion. Patients in group 1 (n = 538) were aged 50 to 64 years; patients in group 2 (n = 144) were aged 65 years and older. Medical records of all patients were reviewed. Patients who had congestive heart failure were identified and analyzed. The diagnosis of doxorubicin-induced congestive heart failure was made and confirmed by a cardiologist at the time of its development. The main outcome measure was the cumulative probability of developing doxorubicin-induced congestive heart failure in elderly patients with metastatic breast cancer compared to a younger age group. Results: In group 1, 33 patients, and in group 2, 13 patients developed doxorubicin-related congestive heart failure. The cumulative doses of doxorubicin administered to patients with congestive heart failure were 410 mg/m2 (range 150–550 mg/m2) and 400 (range 100–570 mg/m2), respectively. The time interval from the last date of doxorubicin treatment to the development of congestive heart failure was, respectively, 5 months (range 〈1–65 months) and 9 months (range 〈1–28 months). There was no statistically significant difference between the two congestive heart failure subgroups, nor were we able to identify risk factors that could have increased the risk of congestive heart failure among these patients. Conclusion: Older patients with metastatic breast cancer and no significant comorbidity can be treated with doxorubicin-based chemotherapy with no added risk of developing congestive heart failure beyond that in the younger age group.

    Notes: The title compound, N,N′-difluoro-N,N′-ethylenedi-p-toluenesulfonamide, C16H18F2N2O4S2·CHCl3, is a novel stable compound of the N—F class of reagents containing two R2N—F functionalities. The compound, as the chloroform solvate, is the first such bis(N—F) compound to be structurally characterized. It adopts a solid-state structure in which the two aromatic rings are antiperiplanar and a combination of weak C—H...F and C—H...O hydrogen bonds [distances and angles range from 3.265 (4) to 3.439 (4) Å and 150 to 170°, respectively] and π-stacking between the rings of different molecules (separations of 3.717 and 3.926 Å) results in a solid-state structure containing well defined channels in which CHCl3 solvent molecules are located. The N—F distances are 1.428 (3) and 1.433 (3) Å.

    Notes: Zoites of Sarcocystis muris were recovered from the skeletal muscles of infected mice by trypsin digestion. Extracts of zoites prepared by freeze-thaw, Triton X-100 (0.1%), or a combination of the two treatments contained antigenic components. Testing of these antigens by agar gel diffusion and immunoelectrophoresis against sera from infected mice showed one major precipitin band.SDS-polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) of the extracts revealed at least eight detectable polypeptides ranging in molecular weight from 10,000 to 220,000. The antigenic components of the extract were identified by labeling the parasite surface with [125I] and precipitation of the [125I]-labeled antigens with immune sera. Analysis of the immunoprecipitates by SDS-PAGE and autoradiography revealed three antigens with molecular weights of 27,500, 43,000 and 90,000. The smallest of these was the predominant antigen as suggested by labeling intensity.

    Notes: — The activity of 2 radiation-surviving and strongly proteolytic strains of Pseudomonas and Achromobacter were compared to the activity of 2 lesser active strains of Neisseria and Bacillus in fresh oysters during iced (32°F) and refrigerated (40°F) storage for 15 days. Radiation doses used for the oysters were 100 and 800 krad. The activity of the former bacteria was higher than that of the latter 2 at both temperatures and radiation doses. Neither the nonirradiated nor the irradiated uninoculated oysters displayed significant increases in proteolytic activity when they were ice-stored for 15 days, but storage at 40°F for the same period resulted in significant activity increases in the nonirradiated. This emphasizes irradiation and storage temperature as related factors. A slight decrease in pH at 15 days in both nonirradiated and 100 krad-irradiated oysters corresponded to the increase in bacterial numbers.
