With the progress of high-speed optical transmission and packet switching, a large capacity packet-based multi-media communication network is expected to spread rapidly. One of the key issues in these networks is the network routing that chooses the route to the destination for packet transmission in the network. In most previous work, the whole network is(More)
PURPOSE To correlate the signal intensity on magnetic resonance (MR) images in the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland with the vasopressin content. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen rabbits were studied: 12 water-deprived rabbits (two each at 48, 74, 96, 120, 144, or 168 hours of deprivation) and two control rabbits. Sagittal T1-weighted MR images were(More)
In Reye encephalopathy, diffuse brain swelling is a well known CT finding, but focal CT lesions have not been documented. We report 2 children with Reye encephalopathy and 2 children with non-Reye encephalopathy both associated with influenza A virus infection in whom symmetrical low density lesions of the thalamus and brainstem were detected on CT. These(More)
We measured iodine-125-labeled recombinant human interleukin-1 alpha (125I-IL-1 alpha) binding in the hippocampus, pituitary, liver, spleen and testis, and plasma adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and corticosterone levels after i.p. injection of various dose and treatment regimens of the bacterial endotoxin, lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Plasma ACTH and(More)
