Acute CNS lesions lead to neuronal injury and a parallel glial activation that is accompanied by the release of neurotoxic substances. The extent of the original neuronal damage can therefore be potentiated in a process called secondary damage. As astrocytes are known to secrete immunomodulatory and neuroprotective substances, we investigated whether(More)
In this study we investigated whether treatment with the immunosuppressant mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has beneficial effects on neuronal damage after excitotoxic injury. Organotypic hippocampal slice culture (OHSC), lesioned by the application of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) after 6 days in vitro, showed an improved preservation of the hippocampal(More)
Fusobacterium nucleatum is a strict anaerobic microorganism that causes disease entities such as periodontal and soft tissue abscesses, pulmonary and intraabdominal infections and very rarely intracerebral infections. Here, we report the rare case of a previously healthy 25-year-old German man with a cerebellar abscess caused by Fusobacterium nucleatum that(More)
BACKGROUND Periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) are often treated by two stage exchange with the use of an antibiotic impregnated spacer. Most of the two-stage exchange algorithms recommend the implantation of an antibiotic-impregnated spacer during the first stage for a period of 2-24 weeks before reimplantation of the new prosthesis. For the spacer to(More)
