The role of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in the development of inflammatory symptoms and cytokine production was evaluated in vivo using a neutralizing anti-PGE2 monoclonal antibody 2B5. In carrageenan-induced paw inflammation, pretreatment of rats with 2B5 substantially prevented the development of tissue edema and hyperalgesia in affected paws. The antibody(More)
A retrospective chart review of 62 children aged 2 to 18.5 years admitted over a 4-year period to a brain injury rehabilitation unit was performed. Glasgow Coma Scales were not always recorded at the referring institutions, but all but three of the children in the series experienced a period of unresponsiveness to the environment for a period of at least(More)
Membrane potential (Vm) is tightly controlled in T cells through the regulated flux of ions across the plasma membrane. To investigate the functional role of voltage-dependent (Kv) and calcium-activated (KCa) potassium channels in T cell activation, we compared the effects of two K+ channel blockers, namely kaliotoxin (KTX) and charybdotoxin (CHTX), on Vm,(More)
Regulation of expression of interleukin 7 (IL-7) mRNA is aberrant in the leukemic subset of cells of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients. The entire coding sequence for IL-7 as well as an alternatively spliced IL-7 mRNA are transcribed in these leukemic cells. No IL-7 mRNA expression is detected in fresh peripheral blood mononuclear cells from(More)
BACKGROUND The hypothesis that cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is involved in the myocardial inflammatory response during cardiac allograft rejection was investigated using a rat heterotopic abdominal cardiac transplantation model. METHODS AND RESULTS COX-2 mRNA and protein in the myocardium of rejecting cardiac allografts were significantly elevated 3 to 5 days(More)
Three cases of intracranial meningioma unmasked by elective general anesthesia are reported. In each case, the meningioma was either asymptomatic or so subtly symptomatic that no suspicion of intracranial tumor had been entertained preoperatively. Each patient presented with failure to wake up after routine general anesthesia for a nonneurosurgical(More)
