OBJECTIVE To investigate immunohistochemical staining of hepatocyte paraffin-1 (HepPar1), alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), polyclonal carcinoembryonic antigen (pCEA), monoclonal CEA (mCEA), MOC-31 and CD10 for differential diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from metastatic adenocarcinoma (MA) on fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB).

The activities of catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT), monoamine oxidase (MAO), and a methanol forming enzyme were studied in whole brain homogenates and in livers obtained from DBA/2J, C57B1/6J, and F1 hybrid mice. DBA/2J mice are extremely susceptible to audiogenic seizures, whereas C57B1/6J mice are resistant to sound-induced convulsions. C57B1/6J mice(More)
Acute nicotine administration has been shown to influence the acquisition and retention of learning tasks. In order to investigate the many possible behavioral and pharmacological effects of nicotine, a modified 2 X 2 state-dependent learning design was used to assess nicotine's effects on active avoidance learning. Male and female mice of the C57BL/6J(More)
Food deprived, heterogeneous strain (HS/IBG) mice were trained on two different discrimination tasks for food reinforcement. In one experiment animals were trained to make spatial discriminations in a T maze. Immediately after training they were given subcutaneous injections of either substance P (1 ng/g) or vehicle. Twenty-four hours later the animals were(More)
Samples of mice from each of 6 inbred strains were tested for audiogenic and electroconvulsive seizures at 5 ages (14, 21, 28, 35, and 42 days). A moderately large within-strain correlation (.67) was found, indicating that developmental patterns of susceptibility to audiogenic and electroconvulsive seizures are similar within each strain. The finding of an(More)
