The molecular basis of complex neuropsychiatric disorders most likely involves many genes. In recent years, specific genetic variations influencing risk for schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric disorders have been reported. We have used custom DNA microarrays and qPCR to investigate the expression of putative schizophrenia susceptibility genes and(More)
Facial paralysis can result in serious ocular consequences. All patients with orbicularis oculi weakness in the setting of facial nerve injury should undergo a thorough ophthalmologic evaluation. The main goal of management in these patients is to protect the ocular surface and preserve visual function. Patients with expected recovery of facial nerve(More)
Here we describe the development of a novel specific, rapid ELISA system, which is performed on modified microplates where polyvinylidine fluoride (PVDF) forms the base of each well. The use of microplates with PVDF membranes as the solid phase allows for a greater binding capacity of protein in comparison to the solid phases of traditional ELISAs. The(More)
