Using in situ hybridization (ISH), we studied the distribution of rat glucocorticoid receptors (GR) mRNA in rat spinal cord. mRNA encoding for GR was abundant throughout the white matter and a clear pattern of distribution was detected within the grey matter. In the grey matter mRNA was primarily localized in the ventral horn, where motoneurones were(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether a particular genotype of the dopamine D2 receptor (DRD2) gene would affect the clinical features of migraine. In a group of 118 migraineurs (55 migraine with aura and 63 migraine without aura patients), we tested the association of the biallelic C/T NcoI DRD2 polymorphism with several characteristics of the(More)
Muscarinic cholinergic receptors were analysed in lymphocyte membranes from 35 patients with early (n = 20) and late onset (n = 15) Alzheimer's disease (AD), 86 patients with other neurological disorders and 60 normal controls by the specific binding of 3H-N-methyl-scopolamine (3H-NMS). The number of binding sites of 3H-NMS (Bmax) was significantly(More)
We report a case in which an acute Guillain-Barré-like syndrome was quickly followed by a central demyelinating disease, documented by the clinical findings as well as by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electrophysiological and cerebrospinal fluid examinations. The close follow-on of the clinical signs seems to exclude a simple coincidence of two separate(More)
OBJECTIVES Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is usually recommended in the evaluation of the patent foramen ovale (PFO). Our goal is to confirm the efficacy of contrast-enhanced transcranial Doppler (ce-TCD) in detecting residual significant right-to-left shunts (RLS) after PFO percutaneous closure. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-eight patients with a(More)
