1 The effectiveness of antibiotic treatment was examined in a mouse model of Lyme 2 borreliosis. Mice were treated with ceftriaxone or saline for one month, commencing 3 during the early (3 weeks) or chronic (4 months) stages of infection with Borrelia 4 burgdorferi. Tissues from mice were tested for infection by culture, polymerase chain 5 reaction (PCR),(More)
Antiepileptic medications were discontinued in 88 children with epilepsy of various causes who had been free of seizures for two to four years. The subjects were then followed for six months to five years (mean, 22 months). Sixty-six (75 per cent) remained free of seizures. Electroencephalographic characteristics, type of seizure, and age at onset were(More)
The Ahr locus encodes for the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR), which plays an important toxicological and developmental role. Sequence variation in this gene was studied in 13 different mouse lines that included eight laboratory strains, two Mus musculus subspecies and three additional Mus species. The data presented represent the largest study of sequence(More)
DNA-carcinogen adducts offer a potential dosimeter for environmental genotoxicants reaching the exposed individual. Because the target tissues for many chemical carcinogens are not readily accessible for monitoring adducts in humans, peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) have served as surrogate sources of exposed DNA. Both benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) and(More)
Lyme borreliosis, caused by tick-borne Borrelia burgdorferi, is a multi-phasic, multi-system disease in humans. Similar to humans, C3H mice develop arthritis and carditis, with resolution and periodic bouts of recurrence over the course of persistent infection. Borrelia burgdorferi arthritis-related protein (Arp/BBF01), a highly conserved protein among B.(More)
