The present work was undertaken to assess the fate of ganglion cell debris in the axotomized retina of adult rats and employed a new technique to label phagocytosing microglia via the internalized material. In the main experiment, transection axotomy was performed on the intraorbital segment of the optic nerve, and a fast-transported, vital fluorescent(More)
The investigation of interactions between growing neurites and target cells during the development of the sensible corneal innervation is of crucial importance for understanding certain corneal diseases which are related to abnormal patterns of innervation. The purpose of the present work was to establish a culture system of cornea and trigeminal neurons(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Despite the recent spread of hepatitis C virus genotype 4 (HCV-4) into European countries, very little is known about the influence of ethnicity on treatment outcomes in patients with HCV-4. The aim of this study was to compare the virologic response (VR) rates of: rapid virologic response (RVR), early virologic response (EVR), VR at 24(More)
AIM To evaluate the impact of hepatitis B core antibody (anti-HBc) seropositivity in sustained virological response (SVR) rates in treatment-naïve, chronic hepatitis C (CHC) patients with high pretreatment viral load (>800000 IU/mL). METHODS 185 consecutive CHC patients (14.4% cirrhotics, 70.2% prior intravenous drug users) treated with pegylated(More)
Sixty patients with borderline or frank insufficiency of their cerebrovascular reserve undergoing carotid endarterectomy were given enough short acting barbiturates, during cross clamping of the internal carotid artery, to cause EEG burst suppression. Arterial and venous concentrations of lactate were measured in blood samples taken before, 30 min after(More)
