We examined the effects of two doses of alcohol (EtOH) on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) activation during a visual perception task. The Motor-Free Visual Perception Test-Revised (MVPT-R) provides measures of overall visual perceptual processing ability. It incorporates different cognitive elements including visual discrimination, spatial(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE A prostamide analogue, bimatoprost, has been shown to be effective in reducing intraocular pressure, but its precise mechanism of action remains unclear. Hence, to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of this effect of bimatoprost, we focused on pharmacologically characterizing prostaglandin FP receptor (FP) and FP receptor variant(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) gastropathy is sufficiently important as to warrant co-administration of misoprostol or proton pump inhibitors or a switch to selective cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 inhibitors. However, the serious ulcer outcome studies suggested that 40% of the clinically significant gastrointestinal bleeding(More)
The EEGs are reported on a group of 95 patients with Huntington's chorea. Thirty one showed little activity of any kind, and in particular no alpha rhythm above 10 μV in amplitude was seen. Only those records which still met these criteria when re-examined were included in the `low voltage' category. EEGs in this category occurred significantly more(More)
Clinical and electroencephalographic features and the response to treatment of 30 patients with episodic dizziness due to epilepsy were noted. The symptom consisted of a brief episode of disequilibrium, often with a sensation of rotation, without evident precipitating factors or sequelae. A history of "absences" or other features suggestive of temporal lobe(More)
A device, the cerebral function monitor, provides a continuous record of the electrical activity of the brain occurring at frequencies from 2 to 15 Hz. It is relatively cheap, portable, and easy to use and interpret. The apparatus has proved of value in three circumstances: firstly, when the cerebral circulation is likely to be vulnerable during open heart(More)
This randomized trial evaluated the effect of zoledronic acid on femoral bone mineral density (BMD) following primary total hip arthroplasty. Bone mineral density was compared for up to 2years in 27 patients receiving 5mg zoledronic acid intravenous infusion and in 24 patients receiving placebo at 2weeks and 1year after surgery. Zoledronic acid prevented(More)
Electroencephalograms of 95 patients with an acute confusional state, referred over three years, were studied to determine their usefulness. The majority were abnormal, and those from patients with intracranial pathology often showed asymmetry of delta activity and paroxysmal discharges. These, and other features, suggested that the EEG was a helpful(More)
