We show that when gene-activated matrices (GAM) are placed between the proximal and distal stumps of severed rat optic nerves, DNA is retained within the GAM, promoting sustained transgene expression in the optic nerve, in the GAM itself, and, more importantly, in axotomized retinal ganglion cells (RGC). Plasmids that encode basic fibroblast growth factor(More)

CONTEXT The mechanisms of septic shock-associated adrenal insufficiency remain unclear. This study aimed at investigating the synthesis of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and vasopressin (AVP) by parvocellular neurons and the antehypophyseal expression of ACTH in human septic shock and in an experimental model of sepsis. OBJECTIVE To test the(More)
Impaired arginine vasopressin (AVP) synthesis and release by the neurohypophyseal system, which includes the neurohypophysis and magnocellular neurons of the paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei, have been postulated in septic shock, but changes in this system have never been assessed in human septic shock, and only partially experimentally.

Since the time of the Ancients, people have believed that the human mind is structured as a set of mental abilities, each producing its own unique state. These faculties were thought to be innate and caused by an all-powerful force (first by(More)
