Lymphocyte infiltration and microglial activation in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) are mainly centred on the spinal cord. However, a cryolesion to one cerebral hemisphere (cryolesion-EAE) induces six-fold enhancement of EAE in the cerebral hemispheres and removal of the cervical lymph nodes reduces such enhancement by 40 per cent.

We investigated the effect of ploidy on osmoregulatory, stress and immune responses in non-smolting rainbow trout during saltwater adaptation. Sibling groups of diploid and triploid trout were acclimated in freshwater (FW) and then subjected to abrupt transfer to full strength (35ppt) saltwater (SW) or back to FW. Fish were sampled pre-stress, and 1, 3, 6,(More)
Lymphocytes enter the central nervous system (CNS) in response to virus infections and in autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis (MS), but the origin of such lymphocytes is unclear. This study investigates the role of the cervical lymph nodes as a source of lymphocytes involved in experimental autoimmune disease of the brain. Acute active(More)
Evidence is accumulating to suggest that hnRNP B1 expression may be a useful tool in the early diagnosis of lung cancer. This study examined the immunohistochemical expression of hnRNP B1 in archived sections of resected lung cancers and compared the patterns of expression with those seen in similar archived sections of non-neoplastic lung.

Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II), also known as Hunter syndrome, is a chronic and progressive X-linked lysosomal disease that mainly affects males. It occurs in 1 in every 65,000 to 1 in 132,000 births. There are two distinct forms of the disease based on age of onset and clinical course: mild and severe. MPS II affects many organ systems including(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II), also known as Hunter syndrome, is a chronic and progressive X-linked lysosomal disease that mainly affects males. The National MPS Society (2013) reports that MPS II affects 1 in 100,000 to 1 in 150,000 males worldwide. Two distinct forms of the disease are based on age of onset and clinical course: attenuated and(More)
