Among a sample of 43 women with epilepsy treated for at least 2 years with valproate (n=22) or other antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) (n=21), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) was diagnosed in three women, two of them were treated with valproate. Although the rate of PCOS and of menstrual disturbances, weight body mass index (BMI) and waist to hip ratio as well as(More)
The main challenge for light-emitting diodes is to increase the efficiency in the green part of the spectrum. Gallium phosphide (GaP) with the normal cubic crystal structure has an indirect band gap, which severely limits the green emission efficiency. Band structure calculations have predicted a direct band gap for wurtzite GaP. Here, we report the(More)
Mild overdosage of phenytoin produces reversible cerebellar symptoms (nystagmus, double vision, dysarthria and ataxia). Several case reports suggest that relatively mild and relatively short intoxication can lead to cerebellar degeneration. We observed 11 patients who had episodes of abnormally increased serum levels, most of which developed clinical signs(More)

Corticosteroids can induce the synthesis of EBV antigens in the Burkitt lymphoma line Daudi. As early as 12 h after application of the drug, an increase of EA-positive cells can be seen, the maximum induction being reached after 2 days. Nanogram amounts per ml of hormone are sufficient for measurable effects. Early antigen induction by corticosteroids does(More)
Mutations in the gene encoding the alpha1A-calcium channel subunit play a causative role in the epileptogenesis of absence seizures in tottering mutant mice. The present family-based association and non-parametric linkage study tested the hypothesis that allelic variants of the homologous human gene (CACN1A4) confer susceptibility to common subtypes of(More)
PURPOSE The present replication study was designed to test the validity of a previously mapped susceptibility locus (EGI) for common subtypes of idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) in chromosomal region 8q24. METHODS Thirty-eight multiplex families of probands with common IGE syndromes were included in the present study. Parametric and nonparametric(More)
We present a measurement of the W-boson mass using 200 pb{-1} of data collected in pp[over ] collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV by the CDF II detector at run II of the Fermilab Tevatron. With a sample of 63 964 W-->enu candidates and 51 128 W-->munu candidates, we measure M_{W}=80 413+/-34{stat}+/-34{syst}=80,413+/-48 MeV/c;{2}. This is the most precise single(More)
We compare the temperature dependence of resistivity rho(T) of Si-metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors with the recent theory by Zala et al. In this comparison, the effective mass m* and g* factor for mobile electrons have been determined from independent measurements. An anomalous increase of rho with temperature, which has been considered as(More)
