To study the hypothesis that neural transplantations can alter seizure susceptibility in a chronic animal model of epilepsy 260 immature rats (30- to 32-days-old) were administered a convulsant dosage of kainic acid (KA). Ten days later rats that had severe seizures following KA received either bilateral intracerebroventricular transplants of hippocampal (n(More)
Lung growth was accompanied by alveolar multiplication in rats from 4 to 10 wk of age; the multiplication then ceased until 14 wk of age, and in this latter interval the alveolar walls appeared to lengthen. The relationship between size of surface alveoli and size of internal alveoli of the lower lobe changed with age, and the relationship was not altered(More)
The volatile anaesthetic agents are known to influence uterine muscle tone. All of the agents studied to date have been found to produce uterine relaxation. This property has been used to produce therapeutic uterine relaxation for difficult obstetric deliveries and the Ex Utero Intrapartum Treatment (EXIT) procedure. This study describes the effects of(More)
Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) show depressed natural killer (NK) activity compared with peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs). To determine if TIL NK function can be reactivated in vivo, 11 patients with tumors metastatic to the lung were treated with systemic recombinant interleukin 2 (rIL-2). Spontaneous TIL NK activity and NK activity after three(More)
BACKGROUND Machine perfusion is a promising strategy for donor heart preservation, but delivery of perfusate through the aorta may be limited by aortic valve incompetence. We hypothesized that retrograde machine perfusion preservation through the coronary sinus avoided this issue and allowed for recovery of donor hearts after long-term storage. METHODS(More)
