Cell replacement therapy has been widely suggested as a treatment for multiple diseases including motor neuron disease. A variety of donor cells have been tested for treatment including isolated preparations from bone marrow and embryonic spinal cord. Another cell source, Sertoli cells, have been successfully used in models of diabetes, Parkinson's disease(More)
In a previously published study, quantitative relationships were developed between landscape metrics and sediment contamination for 25 small estuarine systems within Chesapeake Bay. These analyses have been extended to include 75 small estuarine systems across the mid-Atlantic and southern New England regions of the USA. Because of the different(More)
A booklet entitled "Imprint of the Past: Ecological History of New Bedford Harbor" (U.S. EPA, Region 1; 2001; No. 901-R-01-003), was produced in partnership with the New Bedford Whaling Museum and EPA Region 1. This booklet includes many of the things found in this report, but it does not include the results of the sediment cores. The text in the booklet is(More)
Ecological risk assessments for mercury (Hg) require measured and modeled information on exposure and effects. While most of this special issue focuses on the former, i.e., distribution and fate of Hg within aquatic food webs, this paper describes an approach to predict the effects of dietary methylmercury (CH3Hg) on populations of piscivorous birds. To(More)
Three methods for assessing the relationships between estuarine sediment contaminant levels and watershed stressors for 25 Chesapeake Bay sub-estuaries were compared. A geographic information system (GIS) was used to delineate watersheds for each sub-estuary and analyze land use pattern (area and location of developed , herbaceous and forested land) and(More)
