The mechanisms that underlie cholinergic neuronal degeneration in Alzheimer disease (AD) are unclear, but recent data suggest that oxidative stress plays a role. We report that 4-hydroxynonenal (HNE), an aldehydic product of lipid peroxidation, damages and kills basal forebrain cholinergic neurons when administered intraparenchymally. Examination of(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is the imaging modality of choice for evaluation of acute traumatic musculotendinous injuries of the knee. Three discrete categories of acute injuries to the musculotendinous unit can be defined: muscle contusion, myotendinous strain, and tendon avulsion. Among the quadriceps muscles, the rectus femoris is the most(More)
We assessed the in vivo efficacy of Flt3-ligand (Flt3-L) treatment in C57BL/6 mice bearing a well-established MHC class I-negative prostate carcinoma TRAMP-C1. Flt3-L immunotherapy was initiated approximately 30 days after tumor inoculation, a time when >80% of the mice had palpable TRAMP-C1 tumors. Treatment with Flt3-L at 10 ␮g/day for 21 consecutive days(More)
