Elevated levels of glutamate, an endogenous excitatory amino acid, contribute to the development of neuronal injury in various cerebral diseases. Using a microdialysis approach, the response of extracellular levels of amino acids and metabolic parameters to glutamine synthetase inhibition by l-methionine sulfoximine was monitored simultaneously in the(More)
Neuronal damage in the hippocampal formation is a common feature in animal models of bacterial meningitis and human disease. In mouse and rabbit models of Streptococcus pneumoniae meningitis, proliferation of neural progenitor cells quantified by bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporation was enhanced in the subgranular layer of the dentate gyrus. In mice, the(More)
Between January 1991 and June 1993, a total of 128 patients underwent coronary artery bypass grafting employing multiple autologous arterial conduits, including 157 internal mammary arteries, 69 inferior epigastric arteries, 44 gastroepiploic arteries, and 72 radial artery grafts. Their mean age was 61.4 years (range 29 to 82 years). The patients were(More)
Modifications in the standard technique for coronary artery bypass grafting are recommended in presence of a calcified ascending aorta, to avoid clamp injury or atheroembolism. Between January 1991 and August 1994, we used a "no-touch" technique in 18 patients undergoing myocardial revascularization, who had a heavily calcified and atherosclerotic ascending(More)
Marine debris is a management issue with ecological and recreational impacts for agencies, especially on remote beaches not accessible by road. This project was implemented to remove and document marine debris from five coastal National Park Service units in Alaska. Approximately 80km of coastline were cleaned with over 10,000kg of debris collected. Marine(More)
