The larynx is an organ with a complex anatomic structure. MRI allows the performance of sections in the three planes of space, so that this study of the soft parts of the larynx yields results superior to those of other imaging techniques. Together with laryngoscopy, MRI is most often used in assessing the extension of malignant laryngeal tumors. This(More)
OBJECTIVE Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas involving the cranial base and intracranial compartment are challenging tumors. We reviewed our experience of these tumors and analyzed the efficacy of a multimodality management. METHODS Between 1981 and 2000, 15 extensive juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas (Fisch Grade III or IV) were treated at our(More)
BACKGROUND Gender-specific differences in cardiovascular risk are well known, and current evidence supports an existing role of endothelium in these differences. The purpose of this study was to assess non invasively coronary endothelial function in male and female young volunteers by myocardial blood flow (MBF) measurement using coronary sinus (CS) flow(More)
Clusterin or apolipoprotein J is a heterodimeric glycoprotein which is known to be increased during tissue involution in response to hormonal changes or injury and under circumstances leading to apoptosis. Previous studies in wild-type (WT) and clusterin-null (Clu-/-) mice indicated a protective role of clusterin over-expression in astrocytes lasting up to(More)
Using an in vitro autoradiography, beta-adrenergic receptors were localized in the rabbit eye. Autoradiograms were generated by apposition of isotope-sensitive film to slide-mounted eye sections, labelled with [125I](-)Iodocyanopindolol. A high density of silver grains was obtained in conjunctival, corneal and ciliary process epithelium. Binding sites were(More)
The radiation dose to the lens during CT of the paranasal sinuses was measured in 20 patients. In 10 patients, a "standard" technique with axial and coronal sections was used. In the remaining 10 patients, overlapping axial sections for bidimensional reconstruction were obtained. Radiation dose was measured using thermoluminescent dosimeters. The mean dose(More)
The epithelium of the eye originates from embryonic ectoderm, whereas the amnion is an extra-embryonic membrane that bears close relationship with many ectodermal tissues. Shared antigens have been identified between human amnion and cornea using rabbit antisera to human amnion. Three monoclonal antibodies to human amnion, GB4, GB9, and GB11 were studied by(More)
The anti-lipopolysaccharide factor ALF-Pm3 is a 98-residue protein identified in hemocytes from the black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon. It was expressed in Pichia pastoris from the constitutive glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase promoter as a folded and (15)N uniformly labeled rALF-Pm3 protein. Its 3D structure was established by NMR and consists of(More)
Using a tritium-sensitive film and [3H]-clonidine, alpha 2-adrenergic receptors were localized in entire eye sections of rabbits and rats. This radioactive agonist specifically labelled three structures in albino animals: ocular muscles, ciliary processes and retina. In pigmented animals, uvea with melanin was intensively but nonspecifically labelled.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and vascular toxicity of embolization with radical (NBCA+metacryloxysulpholane=CS) versus conventional anionic (NBCA alone=CA) polymerization of NBCA. MATERIALS AND METHODS Under continuous digital subtracted angiography (DSA) recordings, a 0.2 mL volume of identical glue mixtures were injected in a(More)
