The conventional estimation of motor, sensory, and mixed nerve conduction velocities reflects activity in the fastest conducting, heavily myelinated nerve fibers that are only a small proportion of the total. Unmyelinated and thinly myelinated fibers are not evaluated by this technique and numerically represent the largest group of fibers in human cutaneous… (More)
OBJECTIVES (S)-Leucoxine, isolated from the Colombian Lauraceae tree Rhodostemonodaphne crenaticupula Madriñan, was found to inhibit the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv. A biomimetic approach for the chemical synthesis of a wide array of 1-substituted tetrahydroisoquinolines was undertaken with the aim of elucidating a common pharmacophore for… (More)
Enantiopure bromonium ions may be generated from enantiopure bromohydrins and derivatives, they can be trapped with an in situ nucleophile to give enantiomerically pure products.
We describe a case of relapsing bilateral brachial plexopathy occurring during pregnancy and the postpartum period. This condition is known to occur with a familial predilection, but it has not been previously reported on a sporadic basis. The outcome was poor and associated with several psychosocial consequences.
