In medical practice, many clinical accidents due to blood transfusion reactions have been reported, among which, nonhemolytic transfusion reactions (NHTRs) have been mainly reported in recent years. NHTRs induce reactions such as anaphylactic shock and transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI); however, few forensic autopsy case reports with blood(More)
Chelerythrine, formerly identified as a protein kinase C inhibitor, has also been shown to inhibit the anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 family proteins. However, recent studies have now demonstrated that chelerythrine can induce the loss of mitochondrial membrane potential (ΔΨm), a membrane permeability transition (MPT), and the subsequent activation of the(More)
The present work evaluated the reproducibility and variance of the cerebral blood flow (CBF) response to natural whisker stimulation in the barrel cortex of awake behaving mice. The animal was placed on an air float ball that allowed the animal to walk, while the head of the animal was fixed in a custom-made stereotactic apparatus. Dynamic CBF changes in(More)
This paper describes the effect of drug viscosity on the performance of gas powered liquid jet injectors. The analysis is accomplished utilizing a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model that obtains the stagnation pressure at the nozzle outlet. The technique is based on previous work used to predict gas power driven injector piston velocity with time. The(More)
 Liver and hepatocyte hypertrophy can be induced by exposure to chemical compounds, but the mechanisms and toxicological characteristics of these phenomena have not yet been investigated extensively. In particular, it remains unclear whether the hepatocyte hypertrophy induced by chemical compounds should be judged as an adaptive response or an adverse(More)
