UNLABELLED Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) exhibit a number of unique properties that make them attractive for various nanomedicine applications including their intravascular use. Therefore, the vascular toxicity of CNTs is a critical safety concern and methods of CNTs toxicity modulation are of great interest. Here, we report that carboxylated multiwalled carbon(More)
Polydendrocytes (also known as NG2 glial cells) constitute a fourth major glial cell type in the adult mammalian central nervous system (CNS) that is distinct from other cell types. Although much evidence suggests that these cells are multipotent in vitro, their differentiation potential in vivo under physiological or pathophysiological conditions is still(More)
Terguride is an ergoline derivative with mixed agonistic/antagonistic dopaminergic activity. This led to a paradoxical suggestion that it is effective in the treatment of both schizophrenia and parkinsonism. A total of 65 in- or outpatients with parkinsonism mostly of vascular or idiopathic etiology were included in a 4-week, open, multicenter trial.(More)
The relationship of L-DOPA plasma level, parameters of ERG and severity of extrapyramidal symptoms after a single dose of L-DOPA was investigated in 11 patients suffering from parkinsonism of idiopathic or arteriosclerotic origin. After a drug-free night, each patient received his/her usual morning dose of L-DOPA. In the subsequent 3 h, the ERG recordings,(More)
The genes coding for 4 aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes AAC(6')-APH(2"), APH(3'), ANT(4') and ANT(6) were determined in 44 Slovak clinical isolates of Enterococcus faecalis with high-level resistance to gentamicin (HLGR, collection 1) and 48 E. faecalis isolates with resistance to amikacin (AR, collection 2). The occurrence of spotted genes was (collection(More)
