Expression of CCR7 in multiple sclerosis: Implications for CNS immunity
It is unclear how immune cells traffic between the lymphoid compartment and the central nervous system (CNS), which lacks lymphatic vessels and is shielded by the blood–brain barrier. We studied theExpand

Evidence for glial-mediated inflammation in aged APPSW transgenic mice
Chronic expression of inflammatory cytokines, including interleukin-1beta, tumor necrosis factor alpha, and interleukin-6, by glia may underlie the neurodegenerative events that occur within theExpand

We investigated the relationship between slow axonal transport and axonal regeneration in the rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cell. The DRG cell sends out a single axon which bifurcates within theExpand

Treatment of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis with the chemokine receptor antagonist Met-RANTES
Specific chemokines and chemokine receptors have been implicated in inflammatory demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system (CNS), including multiple sclerosis (MS) and experimentalExpand

Chronic expression of monocyte chemoattractant protein‐1 in the central nervous system causes delayed encephalopathy and impaired microglial function in mice
Increased central nervous system (CNS) levels of monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 [CC chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2) in the systematic nomenclature] have been reported in chronic neurological diseasesExpand

The reduction of postlaminectomy peridural fibrosis in rabbits by a carbohydrate polymer.
Spinal peridural fibrosis following total laminectomy in New Zealand White rabbits was significantly decreased by the intraoperative application of GT1587, a semi-synthetic carbohydrate polymer. TheExpand

Intraspinal transplantation of embyronic spinal cord tissue in neonatal and adult rats
Fetal rat spinal cord tissue was obtained on gestational day 14 (E14) and transplanted into 2–4‐mm‐long intraspinal cavities produced by partial spinal cord lesions in adult and neonatal rats. AtExpand

Oligohydramnios sequence and renal tubular malformation associated with maternal enalapril use.
We present the case of a child who died of pulmonary hypoplasia as a result of the oligohydramnios sequence. The mother was taking enalapril, as well as propranolol and hydrochlorothiazide, forExpand

  • 1 February 1984
Previous studies have shown that astrocytes in some nonmammalian species provide a favorable environment for axonal elongation, whereas mammalian astrocytes are thought to inhibit fiber outgrowth.Expand

The amount of slow axonal transport is proportional to the radial dimensions of the axon
SummaryAxons are fundamentally cylindrical and their geometry is defined by two basic parameters, i.e. diameter and length. The average cross-sectional diameter of an axon is determined primarily byExpand
