PURPOSE To compare pharmacokinetics, tolerability, and efficacy of lamotrigine (LTG) in older versus younger adults. METHODS We studied 686 adult outpatients seen at our center over 5 years. We compared apparent clearance (CL) of LTG in the youngest (16-36 years; n = 247) and oldest (55-92 years; n = 155) tertiles. We analyzed one-year retention for(More)
Cells sort into regions and groups in part by their selective surface expression of particular classic cadherins during development. In the nervous system, cadherin-based sorting can define axon tracts, restrict axonal and dendritic arbors to particular regions or layers, and may encode certain aspects of synapse specificity. The underlying model has been(More)
