Depression or apathy and functional recovery after stroke
While depression and apathy are common after stroke, past studies have done little to examine the influence of these two symptoms on functional outcome respectively. This study was designed toExpand

Relationship between cytokeratin staining patterns and clinico-pathological features in somatotropinomae.
OBJECTIVE Somatotropinomae are classified as densely and sparsely granulated adenomae, which typically exhibit a perinuclear pattern (PP) and a dot pattern (DP) in cytokeratin (CK) immunostainingExpand
