As a prelude to neurobehavioral toxicologic studies in neonatal minipigs, normal maturational changes in the visual evoked response (VER) were determined in 6 Hormel-bred minipigs. The VER were highly variable for the 1st several days of life, but were reasonably stable by the 2nd weeks. All adult waveform components were present at birth, and maturational(More)
PURPOSE With 54 degrees of freedom from the skull to mandible to C7, ensuring adequate immobilization for head-and-neck radiotherapy (RT) is complex. We quantify variations in skull, mandible, and cervical spine movement between RT sessions. METHODS AND MATERIALS Twenty-three sequential head-and-neck RT patients underwent serial computed tomography.(More)
Sinemet-controlled release (CR4) consisting of 50 mg carbidopa/200 mg levodopa was compared with Sinemet 25/100 in 24 Parkinson's disease (PD) patients during a 16-week double-blind cross-over study. The mean age of the patients was 66.2 years, their mean duration of PD was 9.3 years. All of the patients had response fluctuations consisting mainly of the(More)
A disturbing characteristic of methylmercury (MeHg) intoxication is the preclinical "silent" stage. This stage is followed by the sometimes rapid onset of clinical signs such as peripheral sensory loss, motor difficulties, and visual and auditory impairment. The objective of this study was to search for "preclinical" changes in the electrophysiological(More)
AIMS Cardiovascular (CV) disease is a major cause of reduced life expectancy in type 1 diabetes (T1D). Intensive insulin therapy prevents CV complications but is constrained by hypoglycaemia and weight gain. Adjunct metformin reduces insulin dose requirement and stabilizes weight but there are no data on its cardiovascular effects. We have therefore(More)
