The effects of the mobile phone (MP) electromagnetic fields on electroencephalography (EEG) and event-related potentials (ERP) were examined. With regard to the reported effects of MP on sleep, 22 patients with narcolepsy-cataplexy were exposed or sham exposed for 45 min to the MP (900 MHz, specific absorption rate 0.06 W/kg) placed close to the right ear(More)
Cyclosporine A (CsA), a potent immunosuppressive drug with low water solubility, was dissolved in poly(L-lactic acid) (PLA) solution, and nanofibers were fabricated from this mixture by electrospinning technology. The addition of CsA into the PLA solution and the conditions of the electrospinning process did not influence the structure of the nanofibers nor(More)
A retrospective survey of consecutive 480 adult patients (394 men, 96 women, mean age 50.3, SD +/- 10.4 years) with sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) was made in attempt to find out among them the patients with epilepsy. In total 19 subjects (17 men, 2 women, average age 55.8 +/- 8.7 years) representing 4.0% experienced at least two seizures in adult age. The(More)
Various types of nanofibers are increasingly used in tissue engineering, mainly for their ability to mimic the architecture of tissue at the nanoscale. We evaluated the adhesion, growth, viability, and differentiation of human osteoblast-like MG 63 cells on polylactide (PLA) nanofibers prepared by needle-less electrospinning and loaded with 5 or 15 wt % of(More)
As an aid to differentiating between the prion proteins Prp(c) and PrP(Sc), the preparation and use of immobilized Proteinase K (PK) is described. An accumulation of PrP(Sc) in the central nervous system is the one of the causes of neurodegenerative disease. Current routine diagnosis is based on the postmortem detection of the distinct neuropathological(More)
REM sleep behaviour disorder (RBD) is characterized by savage extremities movements and by vocalizations associated with vivid dreams in REM sleep and by insufficient muscle atonia in REM sleep. Videopolysomnography was performed in nine patients (six men and three women, average age 59.8, SD +/- 7.2 years) suffering from Parkinson's disease (PD). The(More)
