To obtain information about changes that occur in hair follicles when tissue expansion is performed on the scalp, punch biopsy samples were taken from normal scalp (stage I) and the top of the expander immediately before removal (stage II) and 12 weeks after the second operation (expander removal and flap transposition, stage III) in 10 consecutive(More)
For most mammalian species, maternal behavior has an essential role in the development of the offspring. The frequency of licking/grooming (LG) the pups has been used as a parameter to evaluate maternal care, having mothers with high (HL) or low (LL) frequencies of LG. This study aimed to analyze the gene expression of the receptors for dopamine (Drd1a),(More)
We read with great interest the recent article by Ni et al.1 on the role of the tyrosine receptor kinase B (TrkB) as a drug target for the treatment of astrocytomas. Among central nervous system tumors, astrocytomas are the most frequent type of glioma, and grade IV astrocytoma (also called glioblastoma) is the most aggressive type of primary brain cancer.(More)
BACKGROUND Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and its receptor, tropomyosin-related receptor kinase B (TrkB) are involved in the maturation of B lymphocytes in the bone marrow (BM), promote cell differentiation in B-cell malignancies, and are associated with poor prognosis in adults with acute leukemia (AL). However, the role of BDNF in pediatric AL(More)
