Abstract : Clinical observations in three patients treated with 100-200 rad partial body radiation to the lower body and one patient treated with 150 rad total body radiation have paralled observations previously reported. A simple infusion filtration system for reinfusion of human bone marrow has been made. A rapid and sensitive assay method for urinary deoxycytidine which allows the detection of as little as microgram of CdR in 1 ml of urine has been developed. Two separate strains of phage to be used for antibody titration are being grown on synthetic culture media. (Author)
