Article
Thirty patients were skin tested by Multi-Test and Morrow Brown needle using antigens, histamine, glycerosaline, and blank controls to examine reproducibility and influence of positive reactions on adjacent negative controls. There was no evidence that histamine or strongly positive antigen reactions affected adjacent negative controls. Multi-Test...

Article
There is evidence that theophylline therapy inhibits lower esophageal sphincter pressure and enhances gastroesophageal reflux in normal adults and adult asthmatics. No studies have used intraesophageal pH monitoring to assess the effect of bronchodilators over prolonged periods. With the use of the latter procedure, we studied 10 randomly selected...
Article
X-ray powder diffraction analysis was used to characterize submicrometer aerosol samples collected using a modified Lundgren cascade impactor. The Debye-Scherrer method was found to be particularly convenient, for the particles could be easily transferred to an X-ray capillary which could then be sealed to limit chemical changes. Several sets of ae...
