It is well known that the nerve growth factor (NGF) may serve as a link between inflammation and hyperalgesia. Recent experiments showed that systemic injection of NGF dramatically stimulated the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) mRNA in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG). In the present study, we evaluated the change of BDNF mRNA in the(More)
We have synthesized an analog (ara-CDP-DL-dipalmitin) of cytidine diphosphate diglyceride (CDP-diglyceride) in which the antitumor drug, cytosine arabinoside, is substituted for the cytidine moiety. Enzymes in rat and human liver convert this analog to phosphatidylinositol, thereby releasing cytosine arabinoside-5'-monophosphate, an obligatory intermediate(More)
The Reynell Developmental Language Scale (RDLS) and Symbolic Play Test (SPT) have been useful language tests for assessing the language age of children. Both tests have been validated in English-speaking children. However, there have been no studies conducted for Chinese children, whether Mandarin (Northerners) or Cantonese (Southerners) is used as the main(More)
