Effects of acute and chronic administration of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) were investigated for dopamine (DA) and its metabolites, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid and 4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenylacetic acid, in nucleus caudatus putamen (NCP), limbic system, and substantia nigra (SN) of golden hamster and BALB/c and C57/BL mice to obtain(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously demonstrated that high-dose chemoradiotherapy followed by resection for patients selected on the basis of mediastinal sterilization was feasible and resulted in excellent outcomes. This study was designed to determine the ability to intensify our prior approach utilizing hyperfractionated radiation and more aggressive(More)
Behavioural and neurochemical effects of acute 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) treatment in mice have been studied in order to determine the change in the neurotransmitter profile of the following areas of the brain: substantia nigra (SN), nucleus caudatus putamen (NCP), limbic system (LS; tuberculum olfactorium and nucleus accumbens),(More)
A child of first-cousin Puerto Rican parents had global developmental delay, failure to thrive, and hypotonia since early infancy. At 1 1/2 years of age, she developed clinical and electrophysiologic evidence of progressive motor and sensory neuropathy. At 2 1/2 years, she developed visual impairment and optic atrophy followed by gradual involvement of the(More)
Studies were performed to bring out a serotoninergic involvement in physostigmine tremor, hitherto known to be working via the cholinergic system. 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) was estimated fluorimetrically after isolation on Sephadex G-10 and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) was assayed spectrophotometrically. The dose-dependent tremor was quantified by a(More)
