AIMS We aimed to quantify the relative contributions of the medial femoral circumflex artery (MFCA) and lateral femoral circumflex artery (LFCA) to the arterial supply of the head and neck of the femur. MATERIALS AND METHODS We acquired ten cadaveric pelvises. In each of these, one hip was randomly assigned as experimental and the other as a matched(More)
PURPOSE Carbamazepine (CBZ) is a first-line antiepileptic agent with mood-stabilizing effects in bipolar disorder. It has been reported to influence extracellular concentrations of serotonin and dopamine, suggesting an interaction with monoamine transporters. We have investigated this effect using in vivo single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)(More)
Background. Implantation of neural cells has been proposed as a therapeutic strategy for repairing the injured or diseased brain. In the present study we have examined the potential of olfactory ensheathing cells (OEC) to promote brain repair after surgical implantation in a rodent model of parkinsonism. Methods. Neonatal OECs were implanted in the striatum(More)
Unilateral kainic acid lesions of the globus pallidus in the rat caused weak spontaneous circling at 3 and 10 days after surgery. Unilateral kainic acid lesions of the entopeduncular nucleus caused no spontaneous circling at any time after surgery. Systemic administration of apomorphine to such lesioned animals caused ipsiversive circling in both groups.(More)
