A combination of mass spectrometric techniques has been used to investigate the amino acid sequence and post-translational modifications of alpha B-crystallin isolated from bovine lenses by gel filtration chromatography and reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography. Chromatographic fractions were analyzed by electrospray ionization mass(More)

Prevalence rates for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in police officers may be six or more times the prevalence rates for the community. Once established, is PTSD in police officers more severe than PTSD in civilians? This small study looks at the symptom frequencies in established cases of PTSD in 31 police officers and 72 civilians and compares the(More)

This paper is an overview of recently published research concerning the neuroleptic drug aripiprazole. Aripiprazole is an antipsychotic drug with high affinity for D(2)- and D(3)-receptors and the dopamine autoreceptor. It also has serotonin 5-HT(1A)-receptor partial agonist and 5-HT(2A)-receptor antagonist properties. It is prescribed in the treatment of(More)
The known distributions of two mutational variants of the albumin gene that are restricted to Mexico and/or North America, Albumin Mexico (AL*Mexico) and Albumin Naskapi (AL*Naskapi), were expanded by the electrophoretic analysis of sera collected from more than 3, 500 Native Americans representing several dozen tribal groups. With a few exceptions that(More)

BACKGROUND Agomelatine is a novel antidepressant with agonist activity at melatonin receptors (MT(1) and MT(2)), and antagonistic effects at the 5HT(2c) serotonin receptor. SCOPE This is a review of current evidence for clinical efficacy and safety, drawn from a literature review using Medline and PsycInfo in 2010 using search terms including agomelatine,(More)
Salivary gland cancers include a diverse group of tumours with many histological subtypes which occur in both major and minor salivary glands. As a result of this heterogeneity and different sites of presentation, there have been no randomised controlled trials to evaluate the indications and efficacy of neck treatments by either surgery or radiotherapy for(More)

Ziprasidone is a new antipsychotic with combined dopamine and serotonin receptor antagonist activity. The initial evidence suggests an effective dosage range of 80-160 mg/day. Clinical trials suggest that the drug is an effective antipsychotic in schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder with a beneficial effect on negative symptoms and symptoms of(More)
The integration and expression of the herpes simplex virus type 1 thymidine kinase (HSV1-TK) gene in localized tumors results in tumor regression after the administration of the specific nucleoside analogue ganciclovir (GCV). Although only 10% to 20% of the tumor cells take up the HSV1-TK gene, the neighboring cells also die, a phenomenon termed "bystander(More)
Optical biopsy systems are a potential adjunct to the histopathological assessment of tissue specimens; they are not invasive and can give an immediate result. We review the most common optical biopsy techniques used to detect lesions of the head and neck: elastic scattering spectroscopy, microendoscopy, narrow band imaging, fluorescence, and optical(More)
BACKGROUND There is an increased risk of invasive meningococcal disease during the teenage years. A cohort of children vaccinated with a single dose of meningococcal C protein-polysaccharide conjugate (MenC) vaccine in early childhood during the U.K. catch up campaign will enter this age group during the coming decade. The duration of protective immunity(More)
