We have previously demonstrated that subchronic (five daily administrations of 2.6 mg/kg PCP) and chronic intermittent administration of 2.6 mg/kg PCP to rats produces hypofrontality and other neurochemical changes akin to schizophrenia pathology (Cochran et al., Neuropsychopharmacology, 28:265–275, 2003). We sought to determine whether behavioral(More)
In Experiment I, the latent inhibition effect; i.e., retardation of conditioned response acquisition when a previously presented but not reinforced stimulus is subsequently used as the conditioned stimulus, was investigated in normal and septal-lesioned rats. Normal animals subjected to 30 nonreinforced CS presentations prior to CS-shock pairings, were(More)
AIM To ascertain the prevalence of HER2/neu-positive early breast cancer (EBC), utilisation of adjuvant trastuzumab and incidence of cardiac toxicity in a community private hospital setting. METHODS Prospective data collected by breast oncologist and surgeons in all women diagnosed with EBC at the Mount Hospital (MH) were reviewed. Women with(More)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Night-time sleep disturbances are important non-motor symptoms and key determinants of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The Parkinson's KinetiGraph (PKG) can be used as an objective measure of different motor states and periods of immobility may reflect episodes of sleep. Our aim was to(More)
Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is common in Parkinson's Disease (PD). Actigraphy uses periods of immobility as surrogate markers of nighttime sleep but there are no examples of its use in assessing EDS of PD. A commercial wrist worn system for measuring bradykinesia and dyskinesia also detects 2 min periods of immobility, which have a 85.2% concordance(More)
BACKGROUND Inhaled antigens from pigeons can cause extrinsic allergic alveolitis (EAA); a model disease of pulmonary inflammation. Among pigeon breeders, serum antibody and sensitized lymphocytes specific for these antigens have been described primarily, but not always, with disease. Antibody activity within the lung may have a closer association with(More)
