S100B is a protein biomarker that reflects CNS injury. It can be measured in the CSF or serum with readily available immunoassay kits. The excellent sensitivity of S100B has enabled it to confirm the existence of subtle brain injury in patients with mild head trauma, strokes, and after successful resuscitation from cardiopulmonary arrest. The extent of(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantify the prevalence of cerebral palsy (CP) in British Columbia within a four-year birth cohort. METHODS The study was a population-based record linkage study of a birth cohort of British Columbian children born between April 1, 1991 and March 31, 1995. Cases were identified by the presence of International Classification of Diseases,(More)
The current study was designed to determine whether exposure of mice to aerosolized jet fuel (JP8+100) resulted in changes in the cellular distribution or immunoreactivity of the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase (GST), a biomarker of toxicant exposure. Male mice were exposed to JP8+100 at 1000 mg/m3 or 2500 mg/m3 in aerosol for 1 h per day for 7 days and(More)
Aircraft engines emit an aerosol plume during startup in extremely cold weather that can drift into areas occupied by flightline ground crews. This study tested a personal sampler used to assess exposure to particles in the plume under challenging field conditions. Area and personal samples were taken at two U.S. Air Force (USAF) flightlines during the(More)
