Nucleolin is a multifunctional protein whose expression often correlates with increased cellular proliferation. While the expression of nucleolin is often elevated in numerous cancers, its expression in normal human brain and in astrocytomas has not been previously reported. Using paraffin-embedded sections from normal adult autopsy specimens and glioma(More)
We report a case of a four-year-old male who presented with symptoms of brainstem compression and lower cranial nerve neuropathies. MRI revealed a large, pre-pontine mass causing brainstem compression with an uncertain intra-axial component. Using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) tractography and other imaging modalities, we were able to confirm that the(More)
The effects of alpha-chlorohydrin administration on the epididymis of the Indian palm squirrel were investigated. The drug induced dose-and duration related regressive histological changes in the three epididymal segments. In spite of the regressive changes in the epididymis, spermatogenesis continued uninterruptedly in alpha-chlorohydrin-treated animals.(More)
Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and pulmonary tumor thrombotic microangiopathy (PTTM) are independently rare in the pediatric population. This report describes an 11-year-old male patient who initially presented with respiratory distress and cardiovascular collapse. A large left main pulmonary artery embolus and multiple, smaller pulmonary thromboemboli were(More)
This study reports on the effects of optical isomers of gossypol administered intratesticularly on testicular ultrastructure and fertility in rats. Gossypool isomers were administered to adult male rats by daily intratesticular injections for up to two days at a dose of 1200 ugm/testis. The results of this study have demonstrated that the intratesticular(More)
BACKGROUND Myxopapillary ependymomas (MEPN) are uncommon tumors of the central nervous system, mainly occurring within the conus medullaris-filum terminale. MEPNs can also present in the skin and underlying soft tissues of the sacrococcygeal region. The incidence of extramedullary MEPNs in children is unclear. PROCEDURE We retrospectively reviewed our(More)
