The aim of this study was to review the efficacy of contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasonography (CH-EUS) in diagnosing gallbladder (GB)-protruded lesions. Thirty-eight patients underwent CH-EUS for the diagnosis of GB-protruded lesions. Twenty-four patients whose major axes of their largest lesions were longer than 10 mm were recruited. The(More)

In the first in vitro experiment, the binding of [3H]MK-801 and of [3H]-CGP39653 were studied in membrane preparations from the cerebral cortex of intact mice to obtain control values. Saturation experiments for(More)
The delayed neurotoxic organophosphate, diisopropylfluorophosphate (DFP) binds with high affinity to membrane-bound proteins from chicken nerve tissues. The autoradiographic distribution of [(3)H]DFP binding sites in spinal cord sections of chicken showed higher concentrations of binding sites in gray matter than in white matter. In the cervical region,(More)
