        In the article “Usefulness of metyrapone treatment to suppress cancer metastasis facilitated by surgical stress” (Deguchi M, Isobe Y, Matsukawa S, Yamaguchi A, Nakagawara G. Surgery 1998;123:440-9) the illustration for Fig 2 on page 442 has poor resolution. The figure is reprinted below.

        Fig. 2A, The relationship between changes in number of PBLs and metastasized nodules of MRMT-1 cells on lung as a function of time after inoculation of the parent cells after intraperitoneal administration of dexamethasone. C is the result of metastasized nodules of control rats. Results are expressed as the means ± SD (n = 4). B, DNA fragmentation of rat thymocytes induced by dexamethasone treatment and surgical operation. Lanes D and O indicate the DNA fragment patterns on a 1.2% agarose gel of thymocytes from dexamethasone-treated rats and rats surgically operated on, respectively. As a DNA size marker, Hinf I digested pUC19 DNA was used.
