Over 30 different mutations have now been identified in MAPt that cause frontotemporal dementia (FTD). However, there are several families with FTD that show definite linkage to the region on chromosome 17 that contains MAPt, in which no mutation(s) has been identified. Although these families could have a complex mutation of the MAPt locus that has evaded(More)
Accumulation of the microtubule-associated protein tau into neurofibrillary lesions is a pathological consequence of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. Hereditary mutations in the MAPT gene were shown to promote the formation of structurally distinct tau aggregates in patients that had a(More)
The production by stress of gastric lesions in rats was inhibited by metiamide and by mepyramine. Lesions induced by indomethacin treatment were inhibited by mepyramine but not by metiamide. Those induced by aspirin treatment in pylorus-ligated rats were not affected by either antihistamine drug. Oral glutamine inhibited lesion production in all three(More)
1. Rats genetically resistant to dextran and other agents producing the anaphylactoid reaction (NR rats), have a higher polymorph count than do rats which react to these agents (R rats).2. NR rats do not develop polyarthritis when a hind paw is injected intradermally with Freund's adjuvant.3. The polyarthritis produced by an intravenous injection of(More)

Intracutaneous injections of three glucan contaminants of invert sugar solutions and crude cane sugar into human skin produced localised wheals and erythema reactions. These glucans of molecular weight between 12,000 and 1,400,000 were also active on intradermal injection into both dextran-sensitive and dextran-resistant rats, and, like dextrans, were(More)
