This is the first large series, comprising 50 patients who suffered a total of 164 episodes, of pseudomigraine with temporary neurological symptoms and lymphocytic pleocytosis (PMP syndrome). Onset of PMP was between the ages of 14 and 39 years and was most frequent in males (68%). Eight males (24%) and five females (31%) had a personal history of migraine.(More)
In order to deepen our knowledge of the different components of the chicken intestinal nerve of Remak (I.N.R.), we have studied it by means of histochemical, immunohistochemical and electron microscopy techniques to distinguish the different neurotransmitters. We have found cholinergic cell bodies, as well as acetylcholinesterase (AChE) positive neuronal(More)
INTRODUCTION Since description of the expansion of the number of CTG trinucleotides on the long arm of chromosome 19 in the 19 q 13.2-13.3 interval as being responsible for myotonic dystrophy (DM), many studies have established a direct relationship between the size of the expansion and the severity of the manifestations. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the(More)
Following the works of Velazquez et al. (1999), Jo-Seung et al. (2000), Wang et al. (2001), Danscher et al. (2001) and the criteria of Zinc-containing neurons established by Frederickson et al.(2000), we have found the presence and localisation of Zinc in the neurons of the dorsal root ganglia of Wistar rat, by using Timm's thecnique and by studying the(More)
The ultrastructure organization of the stomach enteric plexus was examined in the lizard Podarcis hispanica. The ganglions of the myenteric plexus present a low number of nerve cell bodies with a peculiar nucleus, which occasionally establish direct contacts with cells of the circular muscle layer. Glial cells are smaller than the neurones, and their(More)
We have studied the different components of the enteric nervous system in the rectum and cloaca of the chicken by means of histochemical and immunohistochemical techniques. We found cholinergic neuronal bodies as well as nervous fibers, which constitute part of the Meissner and Auerbach plexuses. We also observed plentiful catecholaminergic fibers in both(More)
24 Methanogenic archaea are widespread anaerobic microorganisms responsible for the 25 production of biogenic methane. Several new species of psychrotolerant methanogenic 26 archaea were recently isolated from a permafrost-affected soil in the Lena delta (Siberia, 27 Russia), showing an exceptional resistance against desiccation, osmotic stress, low 28(More)
The aim of this work was to analyse the distribution pattern of S-100-immunoreactive elements in the upper eyelid of the sheep. This pattern may be of importance regarding the diagnosis and prognosis of eyelid tumours that are linked to deregulation of S-100 gene expression. Thirty upper eyelids taken from 15 adult male Ovis aries were studied by means of(More)
We have studied the autoradiographic uptake of 65Zn in the cerebellum and brainstem of the rat, contrasting these results with Timm's positivity in these structures. Both, autoradiographic uptake and histochemical positivity, have demonstrated Zinc in a location that could be accepted as in climbing fibres and glomeruli of the cerebellum cortex, and also in(More)
This is the first study which describes the innervation of some eyelid structures, such as the glands of Moll and the glands of Zeiss. It is also the first to investigate the innervation pattern of the eyelid as a whole. We have studied the acetylcholinesterase-positive and paraformaldehyde-induced-fluorescence-positive (FIF+) innervation pattern of the(More)
