Using transgenic mice that express enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) under the control of the tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) promoter, we have previously shown that there are approximately 3,000 striatal EGFP-TH interneurons per hemisphere in mice. Here, we report that striatal TH-EGFP interneurons exhibit a small, transient but significant increase in(More)
In a prospective study of 120 patients, the cystoscopic views provided by carbon dioxide (CO2) insufflation of the bladder were compared with the views obtained during standard water cystoscopy. The clarity of vision was uniformly good during CO2 cystoscopy and in 21 patients with haematuria the views were significantly better than those obtained by(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). This retrospective study investigated the long-term patient and technique survival and sought to identify the predictors of mortality in diabetic patients receiving PD. METHODS Patients, aged 17 years or more who commenced home PD between January 31, 1994, and December 31, 2001(More)
Primary antiphospholipid antibody (APA) syndrome, a common prothrombotic disorder, has been known in dialysis patients and renal transplant recipients. We report a case of primary APA syndrome presenting as a posttransplant complication in a renal transplant donor. A renal donor presented with acute, painless anuria due to renal artery thrombosis 6 years(More)
Introduction Central-line associated blood stream infection (CLABSIs) is associated with increase hospital costs and length of stay. Antibiotic lock therapy (ALT) along with systemic antibiotics appears to be an option for catheter salvage. Most studies on ALT have focused on Coagulase-negative staphylococcal (CoNS) infections. However, CLABSIs due to(More)
