1. Propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) is widely used as a general anesthetic and for the maintenance of long-term sedation. We have tested the hypothesis that propofol alters endocannabinoid brain content and that this effect contributes to its sedative properties. 2. A sedating dose of propofol in mice produced a significant increase in the whole-brain(More)

Paraffin sections from 29 lung carcinomas (28 primary and 1 metastatic) and 9 pleural malignant mesotheliomas were immunostained with antisera to human hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF) and its receptor, met. For HGF/SF, immunoreactivity was demonstrated in all 9 mesotheliomas, 9 of 12 adenocarcinomas, and 7 of 10 squamous cell carcinomas.(More)

Because the value of any such system is dependent on its reproducibility, we have circulated a series of such(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of venous thromboembolism (VTE) chronology with respect to surgery on survival with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). METHODS An IRB approved, retrospective review was performed of patients treated for Stage I-IV EOC from 1996 to 2011. Cox proportional hazards model was used to assess associations(More)
AIMS Giant lamellar bodies (GLBs) are rare pulmonary inclusions, most frequently described in sclerosing haemangiomas. Following a recent report of their presence in a case of pulmonary lymphoma of MALT origin, our aims were to determine their frequency in pulmonary lymphoproliferative disorders, examine their structure and investigate their aetiology(More)
Clostridium perfringens is a fulminant infection that affects patients with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. Fortunately, C. perfringens-associated sepsis and death in the gynecologic patient is rarely encountered. We report a case of intrauterine C. perfringens presenting as life-threatening sepsis in a postmenopausal patient.
