The pain has been present for 1 day and is steadily increasing in severity. Acetaminophen and ibuprofen have not relieved her symptoms.
William Castle preferred to start with a cup of coffee while he caught up on his correspondence, which often appeared to be an endless task.
As a faculty member of Harvard Medical School, he had always received a fair amount of inquiries, but after he had published his data indicating that pernicious anemia was due to a vitamin B12 deficiency, the amount of mail he received was sometimes overwhelming.
Sitting in his reclining chair he sorted through the large pile that had accumulated. He began to meticulously segregate it into smaller piles he would open in a prescribed order.
Usually the delegation of a particular envelope was a relatively easy choice. There were a few that caused him to pause for a moment, such as the one he was currently holding.
Since it was from someone he had never heard of, he was inclined to place it in the pile to be opened later. But on this day he decided to take another sip of coffee and see what Mr.
Sherman had to say see next page. This case is a work of fiction that refers to real events and people. All of the discoveries mentioned in Section 1 were made by the individuals they are attributed to, as were the observations made by Dr.
Vernon Hahn described in Section 2. The time between discoveries has been dramatically condensed, however. Every effort has been made to present the scientific considerations concisely and accurately. Any errors should be attributed to the author and not the original investigators.
Baltimore, MD Dr. Boston, MA Dear Dr. Castle, I am writing to you in hopes of securing a research position in your lab. I am completing my last year of medical school at Johns Hopkins and would be available to move in August.
Two years ago I saw my first case of sickle cell anemia. I was so intrigued by the case that I decided to see if I could investigate more of the physiological mechanisms that lead to the symptoms these individuals display.
Recently I compared the transmission spectrum of blood obtained from a normal patient with that of a patient with sickle cell anemia.
I read your journal article in which you reported that sickled cells flow through the cardiovascular system at a slower velocity than normal shaped red blood cells. I do hope that you still have an interest in sickle cell I feel that I would make a positive addition to your lab.
I am most My data indicate that there is a difference in what wavelengths of light are optimally transmitted interested in being able to investigate whether this difference in light transmission could account for the physiological complications seen with this disease.
Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. Castle mused to himself. He recognized that these results indicated it was likely that there was a difference in one or more molecules found either in the blood or within the red blood cells.
Since sickle cell anemia was named due to the change in the shape of the red blood cells, the molecule involved was most likely within the red blood cells.Since sickle cell anemia was named due to the change in the shape of the red blood cells, the molecule involved was most likely within the red blood cells.
Castle placed the letter in a conspicuous place on his desk so that he would remember to send a reply to the ambitious student.
