Gastric inflammatory myofibroblastic proliferation (IMP) is an extremely rare entity in children, which to our knowledge has only been mentioned in case reports. We describe the ninth pediatric case and review the literature concerning the etiology, clinical and laboratory features, pathology, treatment, and outcome. There has been a predominance in(More)
The actions of the serotonin precursor 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), the agonist 5-methoxy-N,N-dimetyltryptamine (MeODMT) and quipazine (QPZ) and the antagonists cyproheptadine, methysergide and metergoline, were studied in the rat and in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus). The precursor and agonists elicited head shakes, forepaw padding, splayed(More)
 Retention of a proximal aganglionic segment or the unrecognized coexistence of other dysganglionoses may jeopardize the definitive surgical treatment of Hirschsprung's disease (HD). To assess the extent of the disease and/or the presence of other dysganglionoses without an additional laparotomy, we developed a laparoscopic-assisted technique to perform(More)
The effects of IVT serotonin [5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)] and dopamine (DA) administration have been studied in rats and marmosets (Callithrix jacchus). In rats, 5-HT (114 and 170 micrograms/10 microliters) produced the same behavioral effects observed after IP administration of its precursors and agonists. The same doses of 5-HT used for rats produced only(More)
This study found that military cadets who learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme showed increased capacity of attention, improved memory of details, increased effectiveness in executing orders, improved emotional functioning, increased physical strength, and reduced resting heart rate. In addition, military officers at the academy who learned the(More)
Defective innervation of the neuromuscular junctions (NMJ) was recently described in intestinal neuronal dysplasia type B (IND B). The aim of the present study was to correlate the alterations in NMJs to other classically described parameters in dysganglionoses and to determine the relationship between NMJ abnormalities in IND B and clinical symptoms. The(More)
Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD; McKusick 300100) is a severe X-linked neurodegenerative disorder affecting young males. It is characterized by progressive demyelination, adrenocortical insufficiency and accumulation in tissues and body fluids of saturated very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) (Moser et al 1991). Interestingly, ALD kindreds also include males with(More)
