Trimethyltin-induced intoxication has a great impact on human health due to the widespread occurrence of methyltin compounds. Acute TMT intoxication in humans leads to a variety of neurological symptoms which involve primarily the limbic system. In the present review we summarized the neuromorphological correlates of this neurological syndrome extending the(More)
UNLABELLED Repeated injections of the antibiotic ceftriaxone cause analgesia in rodents by upregulating the glutamate transporter, GLT-1. No evidence is available in humans. We studied the effect of a single intravenous administration of ceftriaxone in patients undergoing decompressive surgery of the median or ulnar nerves. Forty-five patients were(More)
Dopamine (DA) axons in the developing striatum cluster in discrete areas called "DA islands". During the third postnatal week, most DA islands are no-longer detectable and the DA innervation becomes uniform. In this study we explored the relationship between the pattern of DA innervation and the number of striatal tyrosine hydroxylase positive (TH+) cells(More)
BACKGROUND Kisspeptin is a neuropeptide known for its role in the hypothalamic regulation of the reproductive axis. Following the recent description of kisspeptin and its 7-TM receptor, GPR54, in the dorsal root ganglia and dorsal horns of the spinal cord, we examined the role of kisspeptin in the regulation of pain sensitivity in mice.
