(4) The present findings imply that patients in whom an apparent cure has been brought about by conservative treatment may harbor latent malignancy.
(5) The defective hybrid genome thus harbors two origins for SV40 DNA replication in addition to the leftward operator and the N gene of lambda.
(6) It is concluded that the precursor cells for various modes of nonspecific and antigen-specific cytotoxicity are related and appear to be harbored in the NK-9-positive pool in the bone marrow.
(7) One patient harbored a basilar trunk aneurysm, 1 an aneurysm of the proximal posterior cerebral artery, 3 an aneurysm of the superior cerebellar artery, and 10 an aneurysm at the basilar tip.
(8) The mutant larvae are apparently normal, but they harbor serious defects in the organs containing proliferating cells of both somatic and germ line origins.

(10) Iowa senator Chuck Grassley, the Republican who chairs the Senate judiciary committee, introduced legislation on Tuesday that would crack down on jurisdictions that provide safe harbor for undocumented migrants by withholding some federal funding for state and local entities if they decline to cooperate with the government on the holding or transferring of undocumented migrants with criminal records.
(11) In contrast, lymphomas harboring EBV in only proportions of the tumor cells (such as cases of peripheral T cell lymphoma and some B cell lymphoma types) argue against an etiologic role in the primary process of malignant transformation for the virus in these instances.
