The cell wall mannan components of Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae produced hyperthermic responses when injected intracerebroventricularly at doses of 10 microg in rats. Indomethacin treatment (5 mg/kg subcutaneously) completely abolished these responses. Serum interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha and interleukin-1beta levels showed(More)
BACKGROUND A case of osteoblastoma localized at the pedicle of the 10th thoracic vertebra is presented. CASE DESCRIPTION The patient complained of nocturnal back pain not relieved by salycilates, a typical symptom of osteoblastoma. Bone scintigraphy showed a lower thoracic focus of increased osteoblastic activity; however, X-rays, computed tomography, and(More)
Prevention of the production of thromboxane A2--a potent vasoconstrictor and aggregating metabolite of arachidonic acid--or infusion of the stable analogues of prostacyclin--which is another cyclo-oxygenase metabolite of arachidonic acid--has been shown to be beneficial in cerebral vasoconstriction. Endothelin-1, a peptide derived from endothelial cells,(More)
In this study intra-arterial Endothelin-1 was applied to rabbit basilar arteries and morphological findings were compared between two groups who were either perfusion fixed or immersion fixed. We planned to establish the quantitative dimension of the drug-induced morphological alterations, independent of the fixation technique's effect. There was an(More)
The reversal of endothelin-1 induced cerebral vasospasm with Iloprost was studied in the rabbit. Vasospasm in the basilar artery was evaluated by angiography; cerebral ischaemia by 'red-neurone-count' on light microscopy and morphological changes by electron microscopy. A potent antagonistic effect of Iloprost against ET-1 was observed in each of the(More)
