The presence of HHV-6 and -7 and their possible association with clinical problems among pediatric recipients of stem cell grafts was studied in a single institution setting between November(More)
Vinyltoluene is a less volatile homologue of styrene, a neurotoxic chemical. Sixty male Wistar rats were exposed to vinyltoluene vapor at 50, 100 or 300 ppm solvent concentrations 6 h daily, 5 days a week for up to 15 weeks. Twenty control rats were similarly sham exposed. Motor conduction velocity of the tail nerve decreased significantly after exposure(More)
Sixty male Wistar rats were exposed to vinyltoluene at 50, 100, or 300 ppm solvent concentrations 6 h daily, 5 days a week for up to 15 weeks. 20 control rats were similarly sham-exposed. Motor conduction velocity of the tail nerve decreased significantly after exposure for 12 weeks to 100 or 300 ppm and the amplitude of the evoked motor action potential(More)
