UNLABELLED Head movement during brain imaging is recognized as a source of image degradation in PET and most other forms of medical brain imaging. However, little quantitative information is available on the kind and amount of head movement that actually occurs during these studies. We sought to obtain this information by measuring head movement in normal(More)
In vivo imaging using positron emission tomography (PET) is important in the development of new radiopharmaceuticals in rodent animal models for use as biochemical probes, diagnostic agents, or in drug development. We have shown mathematically that, if small animal imaging studies in rodents are to have the same "quality" as human PET studies, the same(More)
The study aimed at immunocytochemical analysis of alimentary tract endocrine cells between 20th day of embryonal life and 105th day of fetal life of domestic pig. In the pancreas, presence of endocrine cells was detected already in 20th day and, at the time, the cells comprised around 3/4 all cells in primordia of the organ. Starting at that time, numerous(More)
AIMS AND METHODS The cellular localization of hepatitis C virus (HCV) proteins in chronic hepatitis C remains a debatable issue. Aim of the studies included cellular and subcellular localization of two HCV proteins, NS3 and C protein, in liver biopsies from 20 children with chronic hepatitis C employing commercially available monoclonal antibodies and a(More)
Monitoring gene therapy of glycogen storage disease type 1a in a mouse model was achieved using [(18)F]FDG and a dedicated animal scanner. The G6Pase knockout (KO) mice were compared to the same mice after infusion with a recombinant adenovirus containing the murine G6Pase gene (Ad-mG6Pase). Serial images of the same mouse before and after therapy were(More)
Positron emission tomography, single photon emission computed tomography and planar projection imaging of radioactive tracers have long been in use for detecting and diagnosing disease in human subjects. More recently, advanced versions of these same technologies have begun to be used across the breadth of modern biomedical research to study non-invasively(More)
The studies were performed on pig embryos between 23rd and 31st day of intrauterine life. Immunocytochemical markers of neuroendocrine cells, i.e. neuron-specific enolase, chromogranin and synaptophysin as well as basal hormones, i.e. insulin, glucagon, somatostatin, pancreatic polypeptide and, additionally, serotonin and gastrin were detected in serial(More)
The study was aimed at a morphological demonstration of calcitonin (CT) gene expression in cultured TT cells, or, more specifically, hybridocytochemical detection of CT mRNA and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) mRNA and ultrastructural localization of the two hormones. The TT cells originated from medullary carcinoma of human thyroid gland.(More)
The immunocytochemical characterization of cell lines originating from thyroid medullary carcinoma, i.e. human TT cells and rat rMTC 6-23 cells, was undertaken. The immunocytochemical studies were supplemented by ultrastructural studies, including ultrastructural immunocytochemistry, and by radioimmunological estimation of calcitonin secretion to the(More)
Progress in recognition of structure and function in a variety of cells has always been linked to development of new research techniques. Beyond doubt, immunocytochemical techniques belong to such new methods. However, the techniques had not been widely applied to electron microscopy until colloidal gold was introduced as a label. This paper presents the(More)
