Smell and taste disorders are common in the general population, yet little is known about their nature or cause. This article describes a study of 750 patients with complaints of abnormal smell or taste perception from the University of Pennsylvania Smell and Taste Center, Philadelphia. Major findings suggest that: chemosensory dysfunction influences(More)
Human olfactory neuroepithelium and respiratory mucous membrane in fetal and adult whole-mount sections were studied. In the fetus, the olfactory neuroepithelium extends from the roof of the nasal cavity to the midportion of the nasal septum and onto the superior turbinate in a continuous fashion. In the adult, the zonal distribution of supporting, sensory(More)
Between March 1973 and June 1979, patients with advanced operable squamous cell carcinoma of the supraglottic larynx or hypopharynx were randomly allocated to receive either preoperative radiation therapy (5,000 rad) or postoperative radiation therapy (6,000 rad). Patients with oral cavity or oropharynx lesions were randomly assigned either preoperative(More)
The immunohistochemical characteristics of the human olfactory system were (OMP). OMP was detected in the olfactory receptor neurons and processes extending from the olfactory neuroepithelium to the olfactory bulb. The olfactory receptor cells located close to the epithelial surface also contained OMP. In severely degenerate regions, only a few(More)
The presence of olfactory marker protein (OMP) in the olfactory tissue of rats, gerbils, and humans was demonstrated with goat antiserum to rat OMP. In control studies on rat neural tissue, OMP was found to be located in the olfactory receptor cells, nerves, and bulbs. Likewise, staining of OMP was found in the olfactory tissues of gerbils. Olfactory marker(More)
The photochemical effect of low-intensity laser irradiation (LILI) on the maturation and regeneration of olfactory-immature estrus day 15 (E15) and olfactory-mature estrus day 22 (E22) rat fetuses was studied. Neuritic outgrowths of olfactory bipolar receptor cells were quantified in olfactory neuroepithelial explants. Explants in the experimental groups(More)
The electrophysiologic and histopathologic changes in the inner ear caused by the administration of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (CP) were studied in guinea pigs. The endocochlear dc potential (EP) gradually decreased after the intravenous injection of CP and reached approximately 0 mV on the fourth day, but the EP did not become negative. The cochlear(More)
