The inhibitory role of the medial amygdala (MA) in maternal behavior control was explored. Injections of N-methyl-D,L-aspartic acid (NMA), an excitotoxic amino acid, into the MA resulted in a dramatic facilitation of maternal behavior in virgin female rats when pups were presented to them 12 days following the injections. This effect was specific to MA in(More)
Preclinical studies have shown that the vitamin D analogue EB 1089 has significantly less calcaemic activity than its parent compound 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D3) and significant anti-tumour activity. This phase I trial was designed to evaluate the calcaemic effect of the drug in patients with advanced cancer. EB 1089 was given to 36 patients with(More)
The factors that determine development of single and multiple primary cutaneous basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) are unclear. We describe a case-control study firstly, to examine the influence of allelism at the glutathione S-transferase GSTM1 and GSTT1 and cytochrome P450 CYP2D6 loci on susceptibility to these tumours and, secondly, to identify interactions(More)

Daytime drowsiness impairs participation in rehabilitation, whereas nighttime wakefulness leads to falls and behavioral disturbances. Sleep disturbances in TBI reported in(More)
One hundred and sixteen patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer were randomized to receive CMF (cyclophosphamide 600 mg m(-2) day 1 and 8 i.v., 5-fluorouracil 600 mg m(-2) day 1 and 8 i.v., methotrexate 40 mg m(-2) day 1 and 8 i.v., monthly for 6 cycles) or MM (methotrexate 30 mg m(-2), mitoxantrone 6.5 mg m(-2), both i.v. day 1 3-weekly(More)
Background: Delayed-release dimethyl fumarate (DMF), indicated for the treatment of patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), is a disease-modifying therapy with potential immunomodulatory and neuropro-tective effects. In clinical trials, DMF was associated with reduced white blood cell and absolute lymphocyte counts. Current US prescribing(More)
