OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to determine if specific measures of heart rate variability (HRV) are associated with the total score on a new seven-item inventory for sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP). METHODS Nineteen subjects with intractable partial seizures, at least three per month, were enrolled in a randomized clinical trial of(More)
Cross-anastomoses and autogenous grafts of unmyelinated and myelinated nerves were examined by electron microscopy and radioautography to determine if Schwann cells are multipotential with regard to their capacity to produce myelin or to assume the configuration seen in unmyelinated fibres. Two groups of adult white mice were studied. (A) In one group, the(More)
From March 1976 until March 1979, 28 patients with disabling emotional symptoms were studied in the Psychiatry and Neurosurgery Departments at Tulane University, and pre-selected for cerebellar electrode implantation and subsequent cerebellar stimulation. This series include 12 patients with different types of schizophrenia; 7 epileptic patients with Grand(More)
Increasing concern about the safety of transfusions and a desire to balance blood supply and blood needs stimulated a regional blood center to study the utilization of blood, rather than simply looking at distribution. A comprehensive survey of transfusion use, including packed red cells (RBCs), fresh-frozen plasma (FFP), and platelets (PLTs), was conducted(More)
9009 Background: Dipeptidyl peptidases comprise a family of serine proteases that includes the genes dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) and fibroblast activation protein (FAP). FAP is expressed in stromal fibroblasts that surround sites of metastatic carcinomas, but not in the tumor cells themselves. Talabostat (valine-proline-boronic acid) is a potent and(More)
The clinical outcome of patients following subarachnoid hemorrhage is complicated by delayed cerebral ischemia and contributing factors such as hypertension. To observe the impact of hypertension and delayed cerebral ischemia on the outcome of a predominantly African-American cohort following subarachnoid hemorrhage, both retrospective (n = 42) and(More)
