BACKGROUND Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is increased in heart failure; however, the relative contribution of the right and left ventricles is largely unknown. AIM To investigate if right ventricular function has an independent influence on plasma BNP concentration. METHODS Right (RVEF), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and left ventricular(More)
Human retinal pigment epithelial (hRPE) cell implants into the striatum have been investigated as a potential cell-based treatment for Parkinson’s disease in a Phase II clinical trial that recently failed. We hypothesize that the trophic factor potential of the hRPE cells could potentially influence the function and/or survival of the implants and may be(More)
Following the failure of a Phase II clinical study evaluating human retinal pigment epithelial (hRPE) cell implants as a potential treatment option for Parkinson’s disease, speculation has centered on implant function and survival as possible contributors to the therapeutic outcomes. We recently reported that neonatal hRPE cells, similar to hRPE cells used(More)
Sixteen diagnosed functional headache patients treated with biofeedback techniques of frontalis EMG feedback and/or peripheral temperature feedback, with an average headache history of 18.2 years, were evaluated at an average interval of 37 weeks posttreatment. On the average, patients showed further improvement in their headache status as measured by(More)
