Patients requiring chronic red blood cell (RBC) transfusions for inherited or acquired anemias are at risk of developing transfusional iron overload, which may impact negatively on organ function and survival. Current iron chelators are suboptimal due to the inconvenient mode of administration and/or side effects. Herein, we report a strategy to engineer(More)
A quantitative on-line analysis of electrical activity in the pallidum of Parkinsonian patients has been developed to determine the focal point of lesioning. A 3D volume image system has been developed to display basal ganglia anatomy and coregister the electrophysiological data within the globus pallidus. Thirty patients undergoing 41 pallidotomies are(More)
OBJECTIVES A quantitative on-line analysis of electrical activity in the pallidum of Parkinsonian patients has been developed to determine the focal point of lesioning. Additional recordings are made after the lesioning, to assess residual neural activity. A 3-D volume stereoscopic image system is proposed to display the complex anatomy and to superimpose(More)
A computerized method of determining the focal point of electrical activity in the pallidum of parkinsonian patients was developed using on-line quantitative physiological data analysis. Thirty patients in a series of 70 were studied in depth. Neuronal activity was recorded from the pallidum using a semi-microelectrode. The signal is inspected visually(More)
Arteriovenous malformations of the gastrointestinal tract are uncommon and treatment is problematic because routine barium contrast studies and endoscopy fail to demonstrate the lesion. Diagnosis is by selective mesenteric arteriography, demonstrating a characteristic vascular tuft and very early venous phase. Two cases of arteriovenous malformation are(More)
Desferrioxamine (DFO) is currently in clinical use to remove iron from transfusion-dependent patients with β-thalassemia major, sickle-cell anemia and the myelodysplastic syndromes. However, its short half-life, burdensome, subcutaneous mode of administration and propensity to cause neurotoxicity at high doses greatly hinder its use. Thus, developing an(More)
