In two conditioning experiments, identical procedures (previously shown to produce place preferences for a cocaine-paired environment) were used to assess dopaminergic and behavioral activity correlates of cocaine reward conditioning and sensitization. In these experiments, animals received repeated injections of intravenous cocaine (4.2 mg/kgx6) or saline(More)
Early full-term pregnancy is one of the most effective natural protections against breast cancer. To investigate this effect, we have characterized the global gene expression and epigenetic profiles of multiple cell types from normal breast tissue of nulliparous and parous women and carriers of BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations. We found significant differences in(More)
Immunostaining for thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) is frequently used to help assess the site of origin of metastatic carcinomas. TTF-1 expression is most frequently seen in carcinomas of thyroid and lung origin. Furthermore, it has been assumed that the expression of TTF-1 in a carcinoma excludes the possibility of a breast origin. We have recently(More)
