Protein S deficiency

Help! Our best friend was diagnosed to have Protein S deficiency. Does
anybody know more about this? Our friend is a male, mid-50′s, 3 wks.
post-CABG, was on Fen-phen for a year. Now, he has clotting problems
(bilateral DVT in LL) and the hematologist suspects he has heparin
allergy, a pre-leukemic syndrome (seen on a bm tap) with peripheral
WBC=30k, and Protein S deficiency. He also has anasarca and is going
downhill. Kidneys normal. He is currently on steroids and coumadin. Does
anybody have any suggestions as to diagnosis and management? Please
e-mail me or post a thread. Thank you.

EPA RESPONDS TO MTBE THREAT!

[ Article reposted from ba.broadcast ]
[ Author was WestRadio <westra...@aol.com> ]
[ Posted on 28 Nov 1997 03:42:05 GMT ]

As many of you in this newsgroup know …I have worked my fingers to a nubbin
to expose the fakes, frauds and liars within state and federal bureaucracies.
My main target has been the EPA –those folks, under the leadership of the
most dangerous woman in America–who politicize vitally critical health issues
that affect each and every one of us thru the air we breathe, the water we
drink,
and the policies set forth under the Clinton-Gore dis-administration.

Today is a day of Thanks. My Thanksgiving was made complete by the
EPA’s announcement (on the second slowest news-day of the day) that it is
issuing a " New Consumer Warning on MTBE: Cancer Data on Gasoline Additive
is expected: Agency is Concerned about Water Contamination."

ABOUT DAMN TIME!

Quoting from the PR Newswire: " The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
is prepared to issue a new health advisory citing cancer data and drinking
water contamination relating to MTBE, the increasingly controversial gasoline
additive that has been widely accused of causing health problems.
  Informed sources in Washington say that EPA’s new consumer advisory on MTBE
will be issued in early December.
  The EPA is expected to cite rodent tests in which cancer effects were found
when high levels of EPA were used. (Here’s the important part) The agency will
make consumer recommendations on how to minimize contamination of water by
MTBE, focusing on advice to help remove taste and odor problems ( Editorial
opinion: how about getting rid of this poison instead of trying to eliminate
early warning signs it is there?)
  If the EPA issues the expected advisory –which is described as
 unenforceable–it will mark the strongest action the government agency has yet
taken in regard to MTBE, although EPA recieved complaints for the past several
years."

I would just like to remind folks in radio and television that the so-called
"right-wing Hate-Talkers of KSFO" are engaged in direct, meaningful and
desparately needed discussion of the liberal agenda under Al Gore and his
side-kick Carol Browner on REAL environmental issues.

And let us not forget that the same EPA in California destroyed all scientific
documents relating to dissension among it’s own scientists on the issues
of MTBE and Smog.

We are making a difference. We will continue to make a difference.
I personally have spent hundreds of hours in research, preparation, and
political action to make sure that our government can "hear us now".

Talk radio provides an important counter-point to government propaganda.

..And yes, sometimes even mainstream media pays attention. But usually
after trying to destroy the credibility of the messenger –instead of
investigating the message.

Thanks for your time in reading this post …

mycoplasma and ESR

I have had a raised ESR (sedimentation rate) for the last six years
but so far tests have not revealed the source of infection.  Someone
suggested testing for mycoplasma but I have read that ESR should be
normal with mycoplasma infection.  Can anyone please tell me if that
is always correct.

HIV and macrophages

HIV can enter T lymphocytes and macrophages.  Does that mean that
macrophages express CD40 MHC proteins?  If so, why do they need them??

WWW: Hardin Meta Directory update – Hematology

This is to announce an updated version of the Hardin Meta Directory web
page for Hematology. All links have been checked to confirm connection and
new links have been added, including the following:

-The Hematology Site, Roberto Stasi, Albano Laziale, Italy

An *important feature* for Hardin MD is that we are now using a link
checker to check the connection rate for the lists that are included.
Generally the lists with better connection rates are toward the top of
their size category (although size of the list is also a consideration in
placement). Lists on the updated Hardin MD Hematology page with especially
good connection rates include:

-Karolinska Institute MIC-KIBIC MeSH Index – Hemic and Lymphatic Diseases
-MedMark – Hematology, I Shin, MedMark Team, Korea
-MedWeb: Hematology
-The Hematology Site, Roberto Stasi, Albano Laziale, Italy
-GrannyBarb and Art’s Leukemia Links, Barbara B. Lackritz, Arthur Flatau
-Bone Marrow Transplant Resource Netmarks, Univ Oklahoma
-MedFiles – Hematology Links , PG Atkinson

Of course, using our link checker, the links on our own pages have
superlative connection rates, generally above 98%.

The URL for the Hardin Meta Directory Hematology page is –
