We examined 200 cases of endometrial brush biopsy (EBB) using the Tao brush and correlated findings with histologic findings from subsequent dilatation and curettage (D&C) or hysterectomy specimens. Diagnosis by EBB relied mainly on histologic evaluation of H&E-stained tissue sections and was complemented by additional cytologic smear examination. EBB(More)
Adsorption of the mycotoxin ochratoxin A by activated charcoal, various bentonites (acid, alkaline, neutral), and hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate was tested in vitro as well as in feeding experiments with pigs. In vitro tests showed that the 1% addition of activated charcoal leads to complete adsorption of ochratoxin A from aqueous solutions. This(More)
Out of more than 5200 struma resections 2.2% were treated because of thyroid carcinoma. Over a 12 year' period records of 117 patients were analysed. Treatment consisted in radical thyroidectomy, radioactive iodine or radiation therapy and hormone-substitution. Differentiated carcinomas were observed more frequently, primarily extended disease decreased.(More)
Tryptamine derivatives (Ts) were found to inhibit the binding of [³H]MK-801, [³H]ketanserin and [³H]8-OH-DPAT to rat brain membranes. [³H]MK-801 labels the NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor, a ionotropic glutamate receptor which controls synaptic plasticity and memory function in the brain, whereas [³H]ketanserin and [³H]8-OH-DPAT label 5HT(2A) and(More)
Those who live in areas where Malaria is endemic, acquire immunity by continuous contact. This immunity cannot be acquired during a short holiday. Children in endemic areas acquire a more severe form of malaria during the period of developing immunity and more often suffer complications like acute hemolytic anemia and, in the case of plasmodium falciparum(More)
