We have surveyed the proteins expressed at the surface of different primary neurons as a first step in elucidating how axons regulate their ensheathment by glial cells. We characterized the surface proteins of dorsal root ganglion neurons, superior cervical ganglion neurons, and cerebellar granule cells which are myelinated, ensheathed but unmyelinated, and(More)
Neuroinflammation is associated with glial activation following a variety of brain injuries, including stroke. While activation of perilesional astrocytes and microglia following ischemic brain injury is well documented, the influence of age on these cellular responses after stroke is unclear. This study investigated the influence of advanced age on(More)
We examined the effects of age on stroke progression and outcome in order to explore the association between blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption, neuronal damage, and functional recovery. Using middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO), young (3 months) and aged (18 months) rats were assessed for BBB disruption at 20min post-MCAO, and 24h post-MCAO with(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Distinguishing an alcohol basis from a nonalcoholic basis for the clinical and histologic spectrum of steatohepatitic liver disease is difficult because of unreliability of alcohol consumption history. Unfortunately, various biomarkers have had limited utility in distinguishing alcoholic liver disease (ALD) from nonalcoholic fatty liver(More)
OBJECTIVE This investigation was performed to construct a grading system for cranial base meningiomas that augments the current system of topographic labeling. This new system classifies cranial base meningiomas based on predicted surgical resection and patient outcomes. METHODS Two hundred thirty-two consecutive patients with cranial base meningiomas(More)
Previous studies in the laboratory indicated that glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored proteins may generate diversity of the cell surface of different neuronal populations (Rosen et al., 1992). In this study, we have extended these findings and surveyed the expression of GPI-anchored proteins in the developing rat CNS. In addition to several well(More)
OBJECT More than 100 clinical trials based on animal models have failed to identify a clinically effective neuroprotectant for stroke. Current models of stroke do not account adequately for aging nor do they incorporate the use of female animals. The authors evaluated the pathological and physiological differences in stroke in young, adult, and elderly(More)
STUDY DESIGN A rare case of subaxial vertebral artery (VA) positional occlusion is reviewed and treatment methods discussed. OBJECTIVE The decision process involved in treating subaxial VA positional occlusion is reviewed. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Bow Hunter stroke is a symptomatic vertebrobasilar insufficiency caused by stenosis or occlusion of the(More)
A total of 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) occur each year in the United States, but available pharmacologic options for the treatment of acute neurotrauma are limited. Oxidative stress is an important secondary mechanism of injury that can lead to neuronal apoptosis and subsequent behavioral changes. Using a clinically relevant and validated(More)
