Rats, subjected chronically (10-12 weeks) to a variety of mild, unpredictable stressors, showed a decrease in their consumption of weak sucrose solutions; normal behavior was restored by chronic (5-9 weeks) treatment with the tricyclic antidepressant imipramine. Acute administration of the dopamine receptor antagonist pimozide or the specific dopamine D2(More)
Plasma biochemical values were measured in 14 horses, before a 160 km endurance ride, immediately after 85 km, immediately after 160 km, after 30 min recovery period and the day after the ride. For statistical analysis, a group of 7 horses that completed the ride at a mean speed of 234 metres per min (m/min) (Fast Group) was compared with 7 horses that(More)
A 24-year-old Caucasian woman with Moyamoya disease was treated by a superficial temporal, middle cerebral artery anastomosis. Her pre and postoperative angiograms revealed that the telangiectatic network in the region of the basal ganglion served as a transcerebral collateral circulation from the internal carotid artery proximal to its occlusion to the(More)
Consumption of a palatable wet mash was examined in rats subjected chronically (4-10 weeks) to unpredictable mild stress. Intake of mash containing 0, 10%, or 20% additional sucrose was normal in stressed animals. In control animals, the addition of 30% or 40% sucrose caused a decrease in the quantity of mash consumed, but increased the rate of eating. Both(More)
Transplant renal artery stenosis occurred in 17 of 142 consecutive transplants (12 percent). All stenoses were in the renal artery distal to the anastomosis and two separate forms are recognized: angulation and segmental stenosis. Successful surgical correction in 12 of 17 patients relieved the hypertension and resulted in improved renal function. No(More)
Considerable interest has developed in the modulation of fluorouracil activity by nucleosides. The toxicity of fluorouracil in mice is known to be reduced by concurrent administration of allopurinol, presumably because biochemical pathways activating fluorouracil in normal tissues are blocked. We have given allopurinol (300 mg t.d.s. PO) concurrently with(More)
