Rabies has been an enigmatic disease of the nervous system because microscopic findings in the brain tissue are not paralleled by the severity of the clinical illness. The calcium binding protein calbindin (CB) is a neuronal marker of great interest in neuroanatomy and neuropathology. CB-ir neurons in the striatum and cerebral cortex are gabaergic cells. In(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the proportion of US high schools using sports preparticipation evaluation (PPE) forms containing the 3 elements of the medical history currently recommended for screening young athletes for heart disease, including questions about exercise-related symptoms, previous diagnosis of heart murmur or high blood pressure, and family history(More)
Efecto de la infección por el virus de la rabia sobre la expresión de parvoalbúmina, calbindina y calretinina en la corteza cerebral de ratones son afectadas por el virus de la rabia. Effect of rabies virus infection on the expression of parvalbumin, calbindin and calretinin in mouse cerebral cortex Some clinical features of rabies and experimental evidence(More)
INTRODUCTION The neurological signs of rabies are very dramatic. Nevertheless, the infected brain manifests only very subtle histological changes. OBJECTIVE The neuronal morphology in the cerebral cortex of rabies-infected mice was examined by means the Golgi technique for detection of neuropathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two groups of mice were inoculated(More)
This study was conducted to assess the probability of success with which middle-school-age soccer players could correctly localize lower leg pain to sites of common overuse injuries, using a graphic self-report instrument. Subjects included 98 middle-school soccer players, ages 12 to 15 years. Players' self-reports of leg pain were compared with the results(More)
Alteraciones de la morfología dendrítica neuronal en la corteza cerebral de ratones infectados con rabia: un estudio con la técnica de Golgi Neuronal dentritic morphology alterations in the cerebral cortex of rabies-infected mice: a Golgi study Introduction. The neurological signs of rabies are very dramatic. Nevertheless, the infected brain manifests only(More)
Some clinical features of rabies and experimental evidence from cell culture and laboratory animals suggest impairment of gabaergic neurotransmission. Several types of gabaergic neurons occur in the cerebral cortex. They can be identified by three neuronal markers: the calcium binding proteins (CaBPs) parvalbumin (PV), calbindin (CB) and calretinin (CR).(More)
