BACKGROUND Antipsychotic drugs (APs) expose users to several adverse effects. Some reports describe an increased risk of venous thromboembolism for particular drugs in this family. PURPOSE To examine the association between the risks of pulmonary embolism (PE) and AP use and assess any dose-effect relationships. METHODS This is a retrospective analysis(More)
Mononucleosomes released from Dictyostelium discoideum chromatin by micrococcal nuclease contained two distinctive DNA sizes (166-180 and 146 bp). Two dimensional gel electrophoresis suggested a lysine-rich protein protected the larger mononucleosomes from nuclease digestion. This was confirmed by stripping the protein from chromatin with Dowex resin.(More)
Therapeutics to treat or prevent anxiety are numerous but many people choose to try non-conventional medicine such as homeopathy. This study aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of Gelsemium 5CH and 15CH on provoked anxiety in healthy volunteers, in comparison with placebo. This was a double-blind, single-centre, randomized, placebo-controlled study.(More)
In the chromatin of Dictyostelium ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes, the coding and upstream flanking regions are sensitive to endonucleases. This sensitivity stops about 2.3 x 10(3) bases upstream from the transcription start, at a point we call the structural boundary. Upstream from the boundary an 850 base-pair region is strongly protected against micrococcal(More)
