OBJECTIVE To determine whether the Barrow Neurological Institute Screen for Higher Cerebral Functions (BNIS) can differentiate brain-dysfunctional patients from controls. DESIGN A case-control study. SUBJECTS A total of 92 controls and 120 patients from a neuro-rehabilitation clinic with a diagnosis of: right and left hemisphere stroke, traumatic brain(More)
Phorbolmyristate acetate (PMA) induced both a luminol- and a lucigenindependent chemiluminescence response in normal polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNL). PMNL isolated from a patient with a myeloperoxidase (MPO)-deficiency were found to produce almost no luminol-dependent chemiluminescence. The lucigenin-dependent chemiluminescence response was, however,(More)
The stimulation of neutrophils by formylmethionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine results in a bimodal luminol-dependent chemiluminescence pattern. We observed, however, only a single peak chemiluminescence pattern in the response to the peptide when we used lucigenin as an amplifying substance. We suggest that lucigenin, the larger molecule, (510 daltons; luminol is(More)
