In the rat Heymann nephritis model, simultaneous blockade of complement regulatory proteins by neutralizing antibodies was required to develop proteinuria following injection of anti-megalin antibody (Schiller et al. 1998).

  • To my knowledge, this paper is the first to find evidence that news media content can predict movements in broad indicators of stock market activity. Using principal components analysis, I construct a simple measure of media pessimismfromthe content of theWSJ column. I then estimate the intertempo- ral links between this measure of media pessimism and the stock market using basic vector autoregressions (VARs).
