TMS studies on the CNS effects of benzodiazepines have provided contradictory results. The objective of this study is to describe the effects of lorazepam on silent period (SP) and corticomotor excitability. Twelve healthy male subjects (median age 35 years) were studied at baseline, following i.v. lorazepam administration and after reversal of the(More)
Advances in imaging have improved early detection of primary and metastatic adrenal tumors. The laparoscopic approach, the gold standard for benign adrenal diseases, is controversial for malignant adrenal tumors. A prospective randomized study of the role of laparoscopic surgery in adrenal cancer is not feasible because of the rarity of the disease. A(More)
We present herein the case of a patient with solitary metachronous contralateral adrenal metastasis from renal cell cancer. The patient had undergone left radical nephrectomy and adrenalectomy for localized renal cancer 7 years previously. Laparoscopic transperitoneal right adrenalectomy was performed. The postoperative period was uneventful. Histology(More)
AIM The role of angiogenesis in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) remains controversial. We investigated the role of serum concentration levels of VEGF and bFGF in IBD patients and assessed their potential association to disease activity. PATIENTS AND METHODS Blood samples were obtained from 40 IBD patients with moderate to severe attack of the disease(More)
Cells containing polyphosphate 71 micrograms P (mg protein)-1 and no poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate showed metachromatic granules but no lipid granules; cells containing poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate (15% of dry weight) showed fluorescence lipid granules but no metachromatic granules; whereas cells containing both polyphosphate and poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate showed(More)
Bacteria were isolated from activated sludge showing enhanced removal of phosphate after several months operation of a pilot-scale sewage-treatment plant. Isolates were obtained by colony picking or micro-manipulation of clusters of cells and those identified genetically (i.e. by transformation) asAcinetobacter belonged mostly (78%) to a single genospecies.
The only species of fission yeasts capable of growing on glycerol or dihydroxyacetone were Schizosaccharomyces pombe and S. malidevorans. When growing on glycerol or grown on glucose until it was exhausted, these species contained glycerol:NAD+ 2-oxidoreductase and dihydroxyacetone kinase but no glycerol kinase, consistent with utilization of glycerol via(More)
Of four strains of Acinetobacter isolated from a pilot plant exhibiting enhanced biological phosphate removal from sewage, two strains (RA3116 and RA3117) accumulated more than 10 times the amount of polyphosphate accumulated by the other two strains (RA3114 and RA3123). Variants isolated from RA3116 and RA3117 showed polyphosphate levels similar to RA3114(More)
