PURPOSE To evaluate the regenerative capacity of the adult rabbit lens after removal of a Concanavalin A-induced posterior subcapsular cataract. METHODS Cataractogenesis was induced by intravitreal injection of Concanavalin A in adult New Zealand albino rabbits. At 7 mo postinjection, the cataracts were removed. Endocapsular lens extraction was performed… (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of Concanavalin A (Con A) on cataract formation in New Zealand Albino rabbits. Uveitis is a chronic inflammatory condition of the eye involving the anterior and/or posterior segments. It may be acute or chronic and is associated with the development of posterior subscapular cataract over time. Con A is a nonspecific… (More)
The effects of pentylenetetrazol and bicyclic gamma-butyrolactones of similar stereostructures were studied on the convulsant and benzodiazepine binding sites and chloride ionophore activity of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABAA) receptor-complex. Bicyclic gamma-butyrolactones displayed millimolar IC50 values and low stereoselectivities on… (More)
There is growing evidence that STW 5 (Iberogast), fixed combination of hydroethanolic herbal extracts), besides being effective in functional dyspepsia, also improves symptoms in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Clinical data indicate that modulation of mucosal secretion is a promising approach to treat intestinal disorders associated with IBS. We therefore… (More)
In this paper, we present a comprehensive TCAD methodology for analyzing the effects of process variation on circuit functionality. We will highlight two essential features of this methodology. First, we will describe the statistical approach we have adopted for worst case file (WCF) analysis in the presence of on-chip variation (OCV). Secondly, we will… (More)
We report the measurements of correlations between event-by-event fluctuations of amplitudes of anisotropic flow harmonics in nucleus-nucleus collisions, obtained for the first time using a new analysis method based on multiparticle cumulants in mixed harmonics. This novel method is robust against systematic biases originating from nonflow effects and by… (More)
High prevalence and high co-morbidity rates with frequently aggravating psychosocial problems make the attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) of children, adolescents and adults an important target for research and healthcare. Recent findings suggest a dopaminergic fronto-striatal information processing deficit in ADHD-patients (executive… (More)
Twenty-nine of 54 subjects with auditory hallucinations were able, when asked, to localize the voices to the left or right ear. Subjects who heard voices on the right were found to be significantly more depressed than the others.
