The aim of this study was to examine the effects of increased carbon monoxide concentrations in the air of car cabin on the health status of exposed drivers and the occurrence of traffic accidents. Exposed group was comprised of 250 drivers professionally exposed to increased carbon monoxide concentrations in the car cabins. Control group was comprised of(More)
We describe two patients (a Filipino boy aged 2.7 years and a Kuwaiti girl aged 4.8 Years) with clinical and MRI findings consistent with the diagnosis of pontine tegmental cap dysplasia (PTCD) and compare them with 23 other cases reported in the literature. Both presented with feeding problems (VII nerve), sensori-neural deafness (VIII nerve) and hypotonia(More)
Data about the role of nitric oxide (NO) in epileptogenesis are contradictory. It is found to exert both proconvulsant and anticonvulsant effects. In an attempt to elucidate the role of NO in seizures, male Wistar rats were treated intraperitoneally by pentylenetetrazol (PTZ) (60, 80, and 100 mg/kg) and by a nitric oxide synthase antagonist,(More)
The present experiment was carried out to determine the effectiveness of nitric oxide synthase inhibitors: 7-nitroindazole and aminoguanidine in modulating the toxicity of aluminium chloride on acetylcholine esterase activity, as well as behavioural and morphological changes of Wistar rats. For biochemical analysis the animals were killed 10 min, 3 h, 3(More)
We studied the clinical and electroencephalographic features in 30 children who were diagnosed with childhood absence epilepsy. According to their EEG pattern we divided the 30 children into two groups: group A: 11 children with classical absences whose ictal EEG showed primary generalized spikes and waves and group B: 19 children with frontal onset of the(More)
The objectives of this study were to translate into Serbian the Health-Related Quality of Life Measure for Children with Epilepsy (CHEQOL-25) and to provide preliminary data on its measurement properties. Translation, cultural adaptation, and pretesting were performed first, followed by evaluation of several reliability aspects of this version administered(More)
The goal of the present study was to examine the effectiveness of a non-specific nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor N-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) to modulate the toxicity of aluminium chloride (AlCl3). Rats were killed at 3 h and at 30 days after treatments and the striatum was removed. Nitrite, superoxide, superoxide dismutase activity,(More)
The etiology of neuronal death in neurodegenerative diseases, including Huntington's disease (HD), is still unknown. There could be a complex interplay between altered energy metabolism, excitotoxicity and oxidative stress. Unilateral administration of quinilonic acid (QA), NMDA agonist, in rat striatum in a single dose of 150 nM was used as a model of HD.(More)
IOxidative stress development in different brain structures and the influence of nitric oxide (NO) overproduction during sepsis was investigated using male Wistar rats. Rats were subjected to cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) or were sham-operated. To evaluate the source of NO production, 30 min before the operation septic and control animals were treated(More)
Continuous exposure to extremely low-frequency magnetic field (ELF-MF, 50 Hz, 0.5 mT) alone and combined with D-amphetamine (1.5 mg/kg) affected the reduced glutathione content in brain regions of rats. Compared to sham-exposed rats, the glutathione content in the forebrain cortex of the ELF-MF-exposed rats decreased (P < 0.001), but this reverted after(More)
