The contribution of cell-mediated cytotoxicity to the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is controversial, and results of in vitro assays vary according to experimental procedures. Therefore, we compared the frequency of cytotoxic effector cells in situ. On tissue sections of controls (n = 11), low frequencies of granzyme A and perforin(More)
The effect of the anxiogenic beta-carboline methyl-beta-carboline-3-carboxyamide (FG 7142) on dopamine release in prefrontal cortex and striatum in the awake freely moving rat was determined using the technique of microdialysis. FG 7142 (25 mg/kg, i.p.) caused a time-dependent increase in dopamine release in prefrontal cortex which was statistically(More)
We present an updated measurement of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. This result uses an additional sample of Upsilon(4S) decays collected in 2001, bringing the data available to 32 x 10(6) BB macro pairs. We select events in which one neutral B meson is fully(More)
We present measurements of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays to several CP eigenstates. The measurement uses a data sample of 23x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BbarB decays collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. In this sample, we find events in which one neutral B meson is fully reconstructed in a CP(More)
The DIRC is a new type of Cherenkov imaging device that will be used for the first time in the BABAR detector at the asymmetric B-factory, PEP-II. It is based on total internal reflection and uses long, rectangular bars made from synthetic fused silica as Cherenkov radiator and light guide. The principles of the DIRC ring imaging Cherenkov technique are(More)
The branching fractions of the exclusive decays B0-->K(*0)gamma and B+-->K(*+)gamma are measured from a sample of (22.74+/-0.36)x10(6) BB decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric e(+)e(-) collider. We find B (B0-->K(*0)gamma) = [4.23+/-0.40(stat)+/-0.22(syst)]x10(-5), B(B+-->K(*+)gamma) = [3.83+/-0.62(stat)+/-0.22(syst)]x10(-5) and(More)
Liver biopsies in hepatitis C frequently show bile duct damage, lymphoid follicles, large and small droplet fat, hepatocyte multinucleation. Mallory body-like material, and activation of sinusoidal inflammatory cells. Even though these lesions are useful parameters in the diagnosis of hepatitis C, their specificity remains uncertain. Endotheliitis-like(More)
The term, atrophy/hypertrophy complex (AHC) of the liver, denotes a distinct combination of hepatic atrophy and hypertrophy occurring in situations of significant impairment of bile flow and/or portal or hepatic venous blood flow. In the lobes or segments concerned atrophy ensues, whereas areas not or less involved develop compensatory hypertrophy,(More)
The production of J/psi mesons in continuum e(+)e(-) annihilations has been studied with the BABAR detector at energies near the Upsilon(4S) resonance. The mesons are distinguished from J/psi production in B decays through their center-of-mass momentum and energy. We measure the cross section e(+)e(-)-->J/psi X to be 2.52+/-0.21+/-0.21 pb. We set a 90% C.L.(More)
