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)

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.
