Studies were undertaken to examine the effects recurrent early-life seizures have on the ability of rats to acquire spatial memories in adulthood. A minute quantity of tetanus toxin was injected unilaterally into the hippocampus on postnatal day 10. Within 48 h, rats developed recurrent seizures that persisted for 1 week. Between postnatal days 57 and 61,(More)
PURPOSE AND EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Telomeres of tumor cells may be maintained by telomerase or by alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT). The standard ALT assay requires Southern analysis of high molecular weight genomic DNA. We aimed to establish and validate an ALT assay suitable for archived paraffin-embedded tumors and to use it to examine the(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and VEGF receptor 2 [fetal liver kinase 1 (Flk-1)/kinase insert domain-containing receptor] have been shown to play a major role in tumor angiogenesis. In this study, we investigated whether anti-Flk-1 monoclonal antibody DC101 could therapeutically inhibit growth and angiogenesis of human soft tissue sarcoma, and(More)
To better elucidate the role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)(165) in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) growth, metastasis, and chemoresistance, we generated stably transfected human STS cell lines with VEGF(165) to study the effect of VEGF(165) on STS cells in vitro and the effect of culture medium from these cells on human umbilical vascular(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are independently associated with increased vascular stiffness. We examined whether renal function contributes to vascular stiffness independently of CAD status. METHODS We studied 160 patients with CAD and 169 subjects without CAD. The 4-variable MDRD formula was used to estimate(More)
Enterobius vermicularis infection is uncommon in adults, compared to children, and rarely causes significant illness. Adult infection is usually colonic in nature and found incidentally at colonoscopy. Worm migration to other tissues is rare. We here-in describe the case of a 73-year-old woman found to have biliary tree E. vermicularis-an as yet undescribed(More)
