This paper demonstrates that convergence and extension within the neural plate of Xenopus laevis are regulated by planar inductive interactions with the adjacent Spemann organizer. The companion article (Keller et al.: Developmental Dynamics 193:199-217, 1992) showed that the prospective hindbrain and spinal cord occupy a very short and very wide area just(More)
A case of successful pregnancy in an in-vitro fertilization cycle, in spite of an accidental exposure to daily long-acting gonadotrophin-releasing hormone analogue administration, is reported. The patient underwent two intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles with thawed epididymal spermatozoa, in which, due to a pharmacist's mistake, ovarian stimulation was(More)
We have developed a coculture system with autologous human endometrial epithelial cells (AEEC) that retained many features of human endometrial epithelium. Implantation failure (IF; >3 previous cycles failed with 3-4 good quality embryos transferred) is a distressing condition in which 2-day embryo transfer repetition is the routine option. The objective of(More)
OBJECTIVE Severe hepatotoxicity caused by paracetamol is rare in neonates. We report a case of paracetamol-induced acute liver failure in a term neonate. CASE DESCRIPTION A 26-day-old boy was admitted with intestinal bleeding, shock signs, slight liver enlargement, coagulopathy, metabolic acidosis (pH=7.21; bicarbonate: 7.1 mEq/L), hypoglycemia (18(More)
The anti-tumour activity induced by glucans (lentinan, yeast cell walls, pseudonigeran, dextran, DEAE-dextran and dextran sulphate) and fructosans (levan and carboxymethyl-levan) was compared with the activity of C. parvum. The following effects on tumour systems in CBA mice were assayed: (a) adjuvant activity on the immune response against tumour-specific(More)
