Brain areas damaged by stroke and seizures express high levels of the 72-kd heat shock protein (HSP72). Whether HSP72 represents merely a marker of stress or plays a role in improving neuron survival in these cases has been debated. Some induced tolerance experiments have provided correlative evidence for a neuroprotective effect, and others have documented(More)
The effects of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (d9THC), delta 6-tetrahydrocannabinol (d6THC), and cocaine on the mitogen-induced transformations of lymphocytes of human and mouse origins were examined in an in vitro system. None of the three compounds is mitogenic in nature. The effects of the two components of marijuana on the mitogen-induced transformation(More)
There is an increasing recognition of the damaging role played by oxygen radicals in mediating necrotic neuronal injury. As such, it becomes important to understand the transport mechanisms that help maintain appropriate levels of small molecule antioxidants such as ascorbate in the brain. It has long been known that the transport of dehydroascorbate (DHA)(More)
The goals of this education outreach demonstration study were to prepare a cadre of registered nurses (RN) as Church Health Educators (CHE), and to test the efficacy of a hypertension (HBP) education and support program in African American (AA) churches for persons with HBP in managing blood pressure (BP). In this two-phase study, RNs were prepared as CHEs(More)

Potential of best practice technology and other measures for improving energy efficiency The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an autonomous body which was established in November 1974 within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to implement an international energy programme. It carries out a comprehensive(More)
Monoclonal antibodies were generated against transferrin purified from chick embryo extract by fusing spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized against embryonic transferrin, with myeloma cells. Antibodies produced by the selected hybridoma clones were all type IgG. Twelve clones were selected for secretion of antibodies to the embryo extract-derived(More)
