Quantitative, single-voxel proton NMR spectroscopy of normal brain was performed in five adult beagle dogs using the cerebral water signal as an internal intensity reference. The same brain regions were then rapidly isolated and frozen using a pneumatic biopsy drill, perchloric acid extracted, and analyzed by biochemical assay and high-resolution NMR(More)
INTRODUCTION Paclitaxel, a microtubule binding agent with potent anti-glioma activity in vitro, exhibits poor penetrance to the CNS when delivered systemically. To minimize toxicity and reach therapeutic concentrations in the CNS, paclitaxel was previously incorporated into biodegradable microspheres (Paclimer), and the efficacy of Paclimer was determined(More)
Quantitative, single voxel proton nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and histological analysis was performed in eight dogs implanted with the transplantable canine glioma model of Wodinsky (Proc. Am. Assoc. Cancer Res. 10, 99 (1969)). Signals from choline, creatine, N-Acetyl Aspartate (NAA) and lactate were converted to molar concentration units(More)
Adult Corrigia vitta (Trematoda: Dicrocoelidea) inhabit the pancreatic duct of the fieldmouse, Apodemus sylvaticus, where, in numbers, they may occlude the duct lumen and prevent the flow of pancreatic secretions. Enzyme histochemical and immunocytochemical techniques, in conjunction with confocal scanning laser microscopy, have been used to examine the(More)
