To elucidate the biological significance of dysplastic cells in malformations of cortical development, an immunohistochemical study was performed to investigate fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) expression in corticectomy specimens from epilepsy patients, including focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) with balloon cells (BCs) (n=4; age/sex=2M, 14F, 24M, 45M),(More)
Reactive oxygen species have been shown to play a role in ultraviolet light (UV)-induced skin carcinogenesis. Vitamin E and green tea polyphenols reduce experimental skin cancers in mice mainly because of their antioxidant properties. Since olive oil has also been reported to be a potent antioxidant, we examined its effect on UVB-induced skin carcinogenesis(More)
To elucidate the biological significance of fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) expression in epilepsy-associated malformations of cortical development, immunohistochemical expression of FGF-2 was investigated in the developing human cerebral mantles obtained from 30 autopsy cases of fetuses, stillborn infants and children ranging from 12 weeks gestation to(More)
BACKGROUND Although potassium channels are thought to be responsible for the initiation of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV), their role in the HPV-inhibitory effect of volatile anesthetics is unclear. The current study tested if the HPV-inhibitory effect of isoflurane and sevoflurane can be affected by changing the potassium-channel opening status(More)
We have tested if inhaled nitric oxide (NO) is beneficial in ischaemia-reperfusion (IR) lung injury using an isolated perfused rabbit lung model. Ischaemia for 60 min was followed by reperfusion and ventilation with nitric oxide 40 ppm (n = 6) or without nitric oxide ventilation (n = 6) for 60 min. In the control group (n = 6), the lungs were perfused(More)
