The ACTH influence upon the thymus may be a reliable model for stress involution. In this case, the cortical lymphocytic depletion is accompanied by mast cell accumulation and increased caliber of the blood vessels. The blood-thymus barrier which has an active role in involution shows an enriched transport activity of the endothelial cells, great(More)
Although there have been many studies reporting the attitudes of medical students to the clinical importance of gross anatomy, little is known about their opinions concerning the clinical importance of embryology. Using Thurstone and Chave methods to assess attitudes, nearly 1,600 medical students across Europe in the early stages of their training provided(More)
Gerota's name is associated with two eponyms and two histochemical methods, but he was also Brâncuşi's teacher and supervisor. When Brâncuşi was a student in Bucharest, he produced an 'écorché' (flayed man), of which six plaster replicas still exist, two in apparently the original shape and four which have been modified/'cosmetized'. The two are in the(More)
Succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) and cytochrome-oxidase (CO) activities were determined biochemically in the white rat kidneys after 24, 48, 72 hours preservation by cold storage. The investigations also included the study of infrastructural alterations in mitochondrial suspensions, separately for the medulla and the cortex. The comparison of the enzymatic(More)
Many studies have been undertaken to assess the attitudes of medical students to the clinical importance of gross anatomy. However, much less is known about their attitudes toward the clinical importance of histology. Using Thurstone and Chave methods to assess attitudes, over 2,000 early stage medical students across Europe provided responses to a survey(More)
The ultrastructural changes of the white Wistar rat kidney, preserved by cold storage into two preservation media (Sacks and Plasmagel) are reported. For each medium two groups of kidney were used; for one of them the medium was used without additives and for the other stabilizing additives were added. The results showed the favourable effects of additives(More)
Rat kidneys were preserved by initial washing and cooling perfusion, followed by cold storage at 6 degrees C for 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours, in two different media: Sacks (hyperosmolar electrolytic solution of intracellular type) and Plasmagel (gelation solution 4%). Evidence was found of DPNH-diaphorase, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), leucylaminopeptidase (LAP)(More)
A case of gastric haemangiopericytoma with glomus-like pattern is reported. The patient, a 42-year-old man was admitted in surgery for acute circulatory failure after a penetrating bleeding cut wound of the abdomen. In the peritoneal cavity a small tumor was discovered on the lesser curvature of the stomach and was removed. This revealed a proliferation of(More)
