OBJECTIVE To report the metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) as the autoantigen of antibodies from 2 patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and limbic encephalopathy (Ophelia syndrome). METHODS Immunohistochemistry with brain tissue and cultures of rat hippocampal neurons were used to demonstrate antibodies. Immunoprecipitation, mass spectrometry, and(More)
The present experiments in 10 healthy men compared auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) and heart rate (HR) indicators of stimulus processing during early and late phases of nocturnal stage 2 sleep. Definition of early and late sleep relied on endocrine pituitary-adrenal secretory activity which is known to be inhibited during early nocturnal sleep but sharply(More)
A 51-year-old right-handed woman initially presented with generalized tonic-clonic seizures. MRI showed abnormal signal hyperintensity of the right temporal lobe that was thought to be consistent with ischemic stroke. Three years later, she developed an intensely enhancing centrally necrotic tumor in the right temporal-parietal lobes. A craniotomy was(More)
A new monocyclic beta-lactam antibiotic, SQ26,776, was evaluated in vitro against clinical isolates, and its activity was compared with that of other cephalosporins, penicillins, and aminoglycosides. This compound was very active against the majority of the aerobic gram-negative bacilli tested, including 47 multiresistant strains. It had no activity against(More)
Cefamandole is a new cephalosporin antibiotic that was tested in vitro against 540 clinical isolates of gram-positive cocci and gram-negative bacilli. A concentration of 0.39 mug/ml inhibited 95% of the isolates of Staphylococcus aureus. A concentration of 6.25 mug/ml inhibited over 90% of the isolates of Proteus mirabilis and Escherichia coli, 69% of the(More)
The activity of temocillin (BRL 17421), a new penicillin, was tested in vitro against 653 isolates of gram-negative bacilli and gram-positive cocci. The drug was compared with other beta-lactam antibiotics and tobramycin. It inhibited the majority of gram-negative bacilli tested except for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, which were(More)
Pirbenicillin is a new semisynthetic penicillin which inhibited 67% of isolates of Proteus aeruginosa tested in our laboratory, 93% of P. mirabilis, 31% of Enterobacter spp., 41% of Serratia spp., and 58% of Escherichia coli at a concentration of 6.25 mug/ml. Its activity appeared to be inoculum dependent and it was virtually inactive against 10(7) inocula(More)
The ability of a menhaden oil (MO) diet to influence cercarial penetration into mouse tail skin was evaluated. Male CD-1 mice 4-6 wk old (15.2 g average weight) were fed a 0, 10%, or 20% MO-supplemented diet for 2 wk. After this time mice were infected with either 65 +/- 3 or 145 +/- 3 [35S]methionine/cysteine-labeled cercariae for 1 hr by tail immersion.(More)
