In rats loss of body weight and lethality were measured after bilateral electrolytic lesions of the lateral hypothalamus. The rats with incomplete lesions initially lost body weight but recovered spontaneously. Treatment with haloperidourgery facilitated the recovery in those rats. The rats with more complete lesions lost body weight which resulted in(More)
BACKGROUND The heterodimeric, oxygen-sensitive transcription factor Hypoxia Inducible Factor-1 (HIF-1) orchestrates angiogenesis and plays a key role in the response to ischemia and the growth of cancers. METHODS We developed a transgenic mouse line in which expression of an oxygen-stable HIF-1α construct was controlled by a tetracycline-responsive(More)
Ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction (UTMD) was used to direct the delivery of plasmid and transposase-based vectors encoding human factor IX (hFIX) to the livers of hemophilia B (FIX-/-) mice. The DNA vectors were incorporated into cationic lipid microbubbles, injected intravenously, and transfected into hepatocytes by acoustic cavitation of the(More)
Sternbach proposed a three component model to account for the emergence of psychosomatic symptoms. He hypothesized that if an individual exhibited (1) marked response stereotypy, and (2) inadequate homeostatic restraints, then (3) exposure to activating situations would result in psychosomatic episodes. The main purpose of the present study was to examine(More)
