Schwann cells produce tumor necrosis factor alpha: expression in injured and non-injured nerves
We investigated the production of tumor necrosis factor alpha, a pleotropic cytokine, in the rat sciatic nerve using immunohistochemistry for the protein and in situ hybridization for specificExpand

Tumour necrosis factor-alpha induces ectopic activity in nociceptive primary afferent fibres.
Tumour necrosis factor-alpha, a pro-inflammatory cytokine, is expressed endoneurially following a variety of local and systemic pathophysiological insults which give rise to pain. We administeredExpand

A laboratory study on the life cycle of Sericostoma personatum (Kirby & Spence), and light dark-dependent food consumption
The life cycle of Sericostoma personatum (Spence) was studied at 6 °C, 10 °C and 14 °C and at each temperature at 8 and 14 hrs daylength. Embryogenesis was not temperature dependent in the 12°–18°CExpand
