The presence of cell surface receptor glycolipid, globotriaosylceramide (Gb3), is essential to confer susceptibility to the E. coli-derived verotoxin (VT). Our earlier studies showed that Gb3 is expressed in ovarian carcinoma cell lines. The Gb3 content of normal ovary, benign and malignant primary ovarian tumors, and their metastases have now been compared(More)
This paper presents the development of a system that will allow a visually-impaired person to safely operate a motor vehicle. Named the blind driver challenge, the purpose of the project is to improve the independence of the visually-impaired by allowing them to travel at their convenience. The system development is targeted to be deployed on Team Victor(More)
The computed tomography appearance of contrast material extravasated in the right perirenal space is presented. The complication occurred during test injection prior to translumbar aortography. The computed tomography findings were those of a right prerenal collection with high attenuation numbers representing contrast extravasation. Concurrent displacement(More)
Immunohistochemical and ultrastructural evidence support the concept that histiocytosis X is the result of proliferation of pathological Langerhans' cells. Central nervous system involvement by histiocytosis X has been commonly described in multisystem disease and in association with lytic skull lesions. Unifocal brain involvement by histiocytosis X without(More)
