Contact between the sexes in many species is known to produce hormonal changes in the male [increases in serum luteinizing hormone (LH) and/or testosterone] that can be interpreted as due to an intracerebral release of LH-releasing hormone (LHRH). In some circumstances, these hormonal changes appear to depend on an intact vomeronasal sensory system.(More)
Cell-based therapies for global cerebral ischemia represent promising approaches for neuronal damage prevention and tissue repair promotion. We examined the potential of marrow-isolated adult multilineage-inducible (MIAMI) cells, a homogeneous subpopulation of immature human mesenchymal stromal cell, injected into the hippocampus to prevent neuronal damage(More)
The provision of alternative water sources is the principal arsenic mitigation strategy in Bangladesh, but can lead to risk substitution. A study of arsenic mitigation options was undertaken to assess water quality and sanitary condition and to estimate the burden of disease associated with each technology in disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). Dugwells(More)

The clinical hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is impairment of cognition associated with loss of synapses, accumulation of amyloid-beta (Abeta) both within neurons and as extracellular deposits, and neurofibrillary degeneration composed of phospho-tau. Neurons in the hippocampus are among those that are most vulnerable. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Estrogen dramatically increases galanin mRNA and peptide levels in the rat anterior pituitary gland. We recently reported that galanin secretion in vitro from estrogen-exposed anterior pituitary cells is regulated by hypothalamic factors; dopamine and somatostatin inhibit galanin secretion, and thyrotrophin-releasing hormone stimulates galanin release. To(More)
Vascular disease is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Vascular repair, essential for tissue maintenance, is critically reduced during vascular disease and aging. Efficient vascular repair requires functional adult stem cells unimpaired by aging or mutation. One protein candidate for reducing stem cell?mediated vascular repair is progerin, an(More)
The main response to arsenic contamination of shallow tubewells in Bangladesh is the provision of alternative water supplies. To support decision-making in relation to alternative water supply selection, the Arsenic Policy Support Unit commissioned the development of a tool for estimating disease burdens for specific options using disability-adjusted life(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess, within communities experiencing Ebola virus outbreaks, the risks associated with the disposal of human waste and to generate recommendations for mitigating such risks. METHODS A team with expertise in the Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points framework identified waste products from the care of individuals with Ebola virus(More)
