Oral iodized oil is the major alternative to iodized salt for correcting endemic iodine deficiency. This study responds to a need for better guidelines in its use. Schoolchildren, aged 6-11 yr, from a severely iodine-deficient area of Algeria received iodized poppy seed oil (Lipiodol) in a single oral dose containing 120, 240, 480, or 960 mg iodine (groups(More)
BACKGROUND There is debate on the neurological impact of chronic exposure to Manganese (MN). METHODS MN burden from rural well water was studied cross-sectionally in two proband cohorts from rural dwellings located in northern Germany. Both cohorts had exposure times for up to 40 years and were separated on the basis of well water MN content. Group A (41(More)
The sensitivities of six silver-staining methods and immunohistology for beta and tau protein were compared for their ability to demonstrate neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) and senile plaques (SP) in paraffin sections. Serial sections of the hippocampal area of 35 brains showing these neuropathological findings were cut and stained by the methods of Cross,(More)

BACKGROUND Several lines of evidence suggest that the proliferation of ovarian carcinoma might be stimulated by gonadotrophins. A number of Phase I/Phase II clinical trials have reported that the suppression of endogenous luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone secretion by luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogs induced objective(More)
Marek's disease virus (MDV) causes a common lymphomatous and neuropathic disease in domestic chickens and, less commonly, turkeys and quail. It is a member of the alpha-herpesviruses and until now was considered to be strongly cell associated. In 1991, MDV was suggested to be the causative infectious agent of multiple sclerosis (MS) in humans. In a previous(More)
