The author performed a pilot study of nicardipine (NC), a Ca(+)+ channel blocker, to study its dosing, toxicity, and possible efficacy for hemispheric cerebral infarction within 12 hours (mean 6.9 hr) of onset to determine the advisability of proceeding with a multi-centered controlled trial. NC was administered IV (3 to 7 mg/hr) X 72 hours by titrating(More)
Fifteen patients harbouring intracranial aneurysms were monitored postoperatively. A thermal diffusion flow probe was placed on the cortex, in an area of interest, and continuous recording of cerebral blood flow (CBF) was carried out for 1-4 days. Vasospasm can also be detected by clinical deterioration, increased velocity by transcranial Doppler, and by(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the effect of the initiation time of posaconazole treatment from 1 to 3 days after systemic infection by Trichosporon asahii in mice. METHODS BALB/c mice, 4-5 weeks old, were intravenously infected with 1 × 10(7) cfu/mouse of T. asahii. The onset of treatment varied from 1 to 3 days after infection.
