One month following this lesion of the nigrostriatal pathway, there was an increase (70%) in the mean percentage of asymmetrical synapses(More)
Accumulation and degradation of scar tissue in fibrotic liver disease occur slowly, typically over many years. Direct measurement of fibrogenesis, the rate of scar tissue deposition, may provide valuable therapeutic and prognostic information. We describe here results from a pilot study utilizing in vivo metabolic labeling to measure the turnover rate of(More)
