The dura mater has attracted considerable attention as an exquisitely sensitive tissue implicated as playing a role in various cephalalgias including vascular headache. Because of the potential clinical impact of the relationship/interaction of neural elements and mast cells the influence of sensory and autonomic nerve fibres on mast cells of the rat dura(More)
UNLABELLED The shape of nanoparticles and nanomaterials is a fundamental characteristic that has been shown to influence a number of their properties and effects, particularly for nanomedical applications. The information related with this feature of nanoparticles and nanomaterials is, therefore, crucial to exploit and foster in existing and future research(More)
Using fluorescence histochemistry, 5-HT, histamine and heparin were colocalized in a large population of cells in the dura mater thereby identifying them as mast cells. In addition, because these cells were highly sensitive to compound 48/80 and were densely packed with granules of a consistent density, they were identified specifically as 'connective(More)
