The use of interferon beta-1a to treat multiple sclerosis in a child of 7 years of age is discussed. To date, there is only one other published report of the use of interferon beta in a child as young as this. One year after commencing treatment she had shown significant clinical improvement, with a marked reduction in number of relapses. In her second year(More)
The multi-meric calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is the main CaMK in skeletal muscle and its expression increases with endurance training. CaMK family members are implicated in contraction-induced regulation of calcium handling, fast myosin type IIA expression and mitochondrial biogenesis. The objective of this study was to(More)
A rare case of obstructive hydrocephalus due to aqueductal obstruction following neonatal herpes simplex virus type 1 encephalitis is presented. The child was treated by third ventriculostomy and vesicles were seen on the floor of the third ventricle. The stoma closed on two occasions and required repeat third ventriculostomy, which was successful in(More)
BACKGROUND Gene therapy of the heart has been attempted in a number of clinical trials with the injection of naked DNA, although quantitative information on myocellular transfection rates is not available. The present study aimed to quantify the efficacy of electropulsing protocols that differ in pulse duration and number to stimulate transfection of(More)
BACKGROUND Mechanical unloading of failing hearts can trigger functional recovery but results in progressive atrophy and possibly detrimental adaptation. In an unbiased approach, we examined the dynamic effects of unloading duration on molecular markers indicative of myocardial damage, hypothesizing that potential recovery may be improved by optimized(More)
OBJECTIVES In cardiac muscle, ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury is attenuated by mitochondrial function, which may be upregulated by focal adhesion kinase (FAK). The aim of this study was to determine whether increased FAK levels reduced rhabdomyolysis in skeletal muscle too. MATERIAL AND METHODS In a translational in vivo experiment, rat lower limbs were(More)
