Sacral insufficiency fractures (SIF) that usually present as nonspecific pelvic or low back pain are often overlooked in the elderly. In a retrospective study conducted in a department of internal medicine, 16 patients with SIF were identified during a 6-year period. All patients were elderly women (mean age of 81 years) who presented with low back or(More)
Epidural lipomatosis (EL) is characterized by abnormal accumulation of unencapsulated fat in the epidural space, and usually occurs as a complication of longterm steroid therapy. This condition, which may result in devastating neurologic complications, has also been reported without exogenous steroid intake. We describe a case of nonsteroid induced(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and validate a modified index for assessing the radiologic axial involvement in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in a group of patients with established disease. METHODS Patients were included on clinical and/or radiologic criteria. The modified index combined features of existing radiologic indices for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) with the(More)
The effects of a repeated treatment with nicotine on the expression of mRNAs encoding preproenkephalin (PPE), preprotachykinin-A (PPT-A), and preprodynorphin (PPDYN) were examined by in situ hybridization histochemistry in various subregions of the nucleus accumbens (Acb). In saline-treated rats, optical density measurements on autoradiographic films showed(More)
1. MFO enzyme activities were measured in microsomes from whole mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) comber livers (Serranus cabrilla), or Posidonia oceanica etiolated tissues, and PAH contents were determined in sediments collected in coastal locations of the French Riviera and Corsica during 3 oceanographic cruises in 1987-1988. 2. BaP activities in mussel(More)
We have developed antibodies against the NK1 receptor and have investigated its cellular distribution. Rabbit polyclonal antibodies were generated against peptide (19-32) of the rat brain NK1 receptor. They were very specific to the NK1 site as shown by ELISA against various epitopes of NK1, NK2 and NK3 receptors and by immunoblotting of proteins from(More)
Microsomal cytochrome P450 content, NADPH-cytochrome c reductase, and phase I (ethoxycoumarin and ethoxyresorufin O-dealkylases) and phase II (glutathione S-transferase and UDP-glucuronyltransferase) activities were studied in the liver and intestine of the striped mullet (Mullus barbatus) for 8 months (before and during sexual maturation).(More)
Isotonic saline loading and intrarenal distribution of glomerular filtration in dogs. Na-14C-ferrocyanide has been used to measure the ratio of the glomerular filtration rate (SNGFR) of the superficial (SUP) and juxtamedullary (JM) glomeruli of dogs. Using Hanssen's technique, a 0.25 to 1.0 ml single pulse injection of a 15% Na ferrocyanide solution(More)
