To assess the role of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nACh-R) in the transmission of afferent constricting inputs from bronchopulmonary receptors to the nucleus tractus solitarius (nTS) and in the mediation of reflex airway constriction, we performed a combined immunohistological and functional study. In ferrets, the expression of nAch-R on the nTS(More)
Results from studies designed to create a model of focal encephalitis caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV) are reported. Anesthetized rabbits underwent exposure and inoculation of the olfactory bulb with three different doses of a wild-type HSV. Lethal infection resulted in 69% of the animals, without evidence for a dose-response relationship. Necropsy(More)
Until recently, infection of the uterine cervix by human papillomavirus (HPV) was thought to be rare. Marsh could find only 10 reported cases of condyloma acuminatum of the cervix in the world literature (Marsh, 1952). Raftery and Payne (1954) found histological evidence of condyloma acuminatum in 3% of 587 biopsies from the uterine cervix seen in their(More)
BACKGROUND Candida albicans infections of the cervix are not adequately diagnosed in Papanicolaou smears when compared with culture in Sabouraud dextrose agar. METHODS Cervical smears were collected from 1000, non-pregnant, asymptomatic women. The specimens were prepared using the Papanicolaou (Pap) smear method examined by microscopy and subsequently(More)
