Survival is linked to the histopathologic distinction between usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) and nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), the most commonly encountered fibrotic idiopathic interstitial pneumonia. We retrospectively compared the prognostic significance of histopathologic diagnoses, baseline pulmonary function indices, and serial trends… (More)
The bird hippocampus (Hp), although lacking the cellular lamination of the mammalian Hp, possesses comparable roles in spatial orientation and is implicated in passive avoidance learning. As in rodents it can be divided into dorsal and ventral regions based on immunocytochemical, tracing and electrophysiological studies. To study the effects of passive… (More)
One-trial passive avoidance learning (PAL), where the aversive stimulus is the bitter-tasting substance methylanthranilate (MeA), affects neuronal and synaptic plasticity in learning-related areas of day-old domestic chicks (Gallus domesticus). Here, cell proliferation was examined in the chick forebrain by using 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) at 24 h and 9… (More)
A 43-year-old female developed diplopia and drop of her eyelids in November 2003. Myasthenia was diagnosed and the investigation revealed a large mass of 5.5 cm in the upper anterior mediastinum and deposits in lungs and pleura.
