    Abstract: To date there are no validated methods available to test androgenicity or antiandrogenicity in vitro. A problem with testing androgenicity using reporter genes is the possibility by other steroid receptors than androgen receptors to activate the same reporter gene, thereby lowering selectivity. To avoid this we have established a robust and very selective method, the AR CALUX reporter gene assay, to test androgenic and antiandrogenic activity of compounds in vitro. This assay uses a human U2-OS cell line stably transfected with the human androgen receptor and an androgen receptor responsive reporter gene. We optimized protocols to be used in combination with AR CALUX cells and carried out an in house prevalidation. In addition we successfully transferred this assay to another laboratory, leading to comparable test results with a panel of androgen receptor agonists and antagonists. The assay was able to readily rank a range of chemicals on the basis of their EC50 values. The CALUX assay was found to be selective for androgens and seemed not influenced by signaling through other steroid receptors.

    Notes: Abstract Most cases of sacral dysgenesis are considered to be sporadic events. We present two families in whom the presence of associated clinical features prompted specific investigation of chromosome 7, leading to the identification of an underlying chromosome 7q deletion causing sacral dysgenesis. All affected individuals had microcephaly and developmental delay. Detailed cytogenetic studies confirmed that all three affected individuals had a deletion of chromosome 7q associated with their sacral dysgenesis, developmental delay and related problems. The three affected patients were studied clinically, radiologically and cytogenetically. Eleven unaffected individuals from the two families were also investigated by genetic studies, specifically evaluating chromosome 7. Conclusion It is important that detailed family history, evaluation of associated malformations and the overall clinical picture be considered in identifying the underlying diagnosis in cases of anal stenosis/sacral agenesis. The cases we present demonstrate the value of detailed chromosome studies in such situations.

    Notes: Abstract Objective The effect of selective decontamination of the digestive tract (SDD) on Intensive Therapy Unit (ITU)-acquired enterococcal infection and colonization was studied. Changes in the predominant species isolated and resistance patterns to antimicrobial agents were also studied. Design Three groups were investigated: historical control (HC), contemporaneous control (CC) and patients receiving SDD (topical polymyxin, amphoterecin B and tobramycin throughout ITU stay with intravenous ceftazidime for the first 3 days only). Setting Adult general ITU with 7 beds. Patients Patients with a nasogastric tube in situ and who were likely to remain in ITU for 48 h or longer were recruited. Results Enterococcal infections occured in 3 of 84 HC patients and 2 of 91 CC patients. There were no unit-acquired enterococcal infections in the SDD group. There were 140 episodes of enterococcal colonization occurring in 112 patients, with significantly more in the SDD and CC groups (p〈0.05. There were no significant differences in antibiotic sensitivities between the three groups.Enterococcus faecalis was the most frequently isolated species. Conclusion SDD does not predispose to enterococcal infection but does encourage colonization in patients receiving the regimen and other patients in ITU at the same. There is a complex interaction of factors which influence faecal flora and the likelihood of patients becoming colonized or infected with enterococci.

    Notes: The kinetics of polycondensation of hydroxyfunctional polydimethylsiloxane has been studied with a simple new inexpensive piece of equipment, i.e., the vibrating needle curemeter. The order of reaction with respect to crosslinker and catalyst concentration has been determined to be unity and 0.24, respectively. The activation energy of the reaction has been found to be zero. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

    Description / Table of Contents: Niobium and Tantalum Complexes with P2 and P4 LigandsThe photolysis of [Cp″Ta(CO)4] 1 (Cp″ = C5H3tBu2-1,3) and P4 affords Cp″(CO)2Ta(η4-P4) 2, [{Cp″(CO)Ta}2(m̈-η2:2-P2)2] 3 and [Cp3″(CO)3Ta3(P2)2] 4. In a photochemical reaction 2 and [Cp*Nb(CO)4] 5 form [{Cp*(CO)Nb}{Cp″(CO)Ta}(m̈-η2:2-P2)2] 6 and [{Cp*(CO)2Nb} {Cp*Nb}{Cp″(CO)Ta}(m̈3-η2:1:1-P2)2] 7, a compound with the novel m̈3-η2:2:1-P2-coordination mode. The reaction of 2 and [Cp*Co(C2H4)2] 8 leads to [{Cp*Co} {Cp″(CO)Ta}(m̈-η2:2-P2)2] 9, a heteronuclear complex with an „early“ and a „late“ transition metal. Complexes 2, 3, 7 and 9 have been further characterized by X-ray structure analyses.
