Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a sensitive diagnostic tool for the in vivo detection of morphological abnormalities in herpes simplex virus encephalitis (HSVE). We performed a long-term MRI study in a mouse model of HSVE. Cranial MRI findings were compared with the viral load within brain tissue, the presence of HSV DNA in the cerebrospinal(More)
Despite early antiviral treatment, herpes simples virus encephalitis (HSVE) still remains a life-threatening sporadic disease with high mortality and morbidity. In patients and in experimental disease, chronic progressive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) abnormalities have been found even after antiviral therapy. Secondary autoimmune-mediated and not(More)
Sleep debt--together with circadian misalignment--is considered a central factor for adverse health outcomes associated with shift work. Here, we describe in detail sleep-wake behavior in a fast-forward rotating 12-h shift schedule, which involves at least 24 hours off after each shift and thus allows examining the role of immediate recovery after(More)
Chromosomal instability in exfoliated urothelial cells has been associated with the development of bladder cancer. Here, we analyzed the accumulation of copy number variations (CNVs) using fluorescence in situ hybridization in cancer cases and explored factors associated with the detection of CNVs in tumor-free men. The prospective UroScreen study was(More)
The present study investigates the impact of chronotype, social jetlag and sleep duration on self-perceived health, measured by Work Ability Index (WAI), within an industrial setting. Between 2011 and 2013, 2474 day and shift workers participated in a health check offered by an occupational health promotion program and filled out the Munich ChronoType(More)
