We have shown that adenoid tissue contains large amounts of the inflammatory mediator histamine. Children with fluid present in both ears at operation were found to have increased amounts of histamine in their adenoid tissue compared to a group with no signs or symptoms of SOM. Also mouth breathing and nasal obstruction were associated with adenoid(More)
BACKGROUND Morphine-6-glucuronide (M6G) is an active metabolite of morphine with potent analgesic activity. Morphine-3-glucuronide (M3G), the most prevalent metabolite, has minimal affinity for opioid receptors. It has been suggested from animal model data and by examination of metabolite ratios in humans that M3G may functionally antagonize the respiratory(More)
Schizophrenia is a devastating mental illness. Although its etiology is still largely unknown, strides have been taken throughout the last several decades to elucidate the nature of the neuropathology behind this disorder. The advent of neuroimaging technologies such as computerized axial tomography and magnetic resonance imaging have progressed knowledge(More)
Histamine, both free and cell associated, has been demonstrated in middle ear fluid from patients with secretory otitis media (SOM). Histamine, mainly free in solution, has also been shown to be present in nasopharyngeal secretions taken from close to the Eustachian tube openings into the nasopharynx. The adenoids from patients with middle ear effusion(More)
Variety of mobile phone applications now seek access to the sensors in-built into the phone. Such applications require access to sensors for either data collection or for responding to events generated by sensors. Different mobile operating system provide different sets of APIs for accessing the sensors thus requiring rewriting of code to make it portable.(More)
