Groups of male and groups of female Wistar albino rats were administered diets containing sufficient di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) to ensure intakes of either 1000, 200, or 50 mg/kg/day. Four rats from each experimental group and six control rats of the same sex were killed 3, 7, 14, and 28 days and 9 months after commencement of treatment. At all time(More)
BACKGROUND Unrelated individuals (n = 242) were interviewed directly for the presence of migraine, anxiety disorders, and major depression. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data described in this study are derived from a clinical genetic relational database that was developed initially for the genetic analysis of migraine. Genotyping of the DRD2 NcoI C to T(More)
The role of apoptosis in acetaminophen (AAP)-induced hepatic injury was investigated. Six hours after AAP administration to BALB/c mice, a significant loss of hepatic mitochondrial cytochrome c was observed that was similar in extent to the loss observed after in vivo activation of CD95 by antibody treatment. AAP-induced loss of mitochondrial cytochrome c(More)
Groups of male Wistar albino rats were administered diets containing sufficient fenofibrate to ensure intakes of either 200, 60 or 13 mg/kg/day or sufficient clofibrate to ensure an intake of 400 mg/kg/day. Four rats from each experimental group and 6 control rats were killed, 3, 7, 14 and 28 days, 8, 12 and 20 weeks and 6, 9, 12 and 18 months after(More)
The effects, over periods from 3 days to 9 months of administration, of diets containing di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate are very similar to those observed in rats administered diets containing hypolipidemic drugs such as clofibrate. Changes occur in a characteristic order commencing with alterations in the distribution of lipid within the liver, quickly followed(More)
Treatment of rats for periods of 3 months or longer with the hypolipidaemic drugs clofibrate and fenofibrate or with the plasticiser di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate causes alterations in the thyroid. The colloid is shrunken and contains calcium-rich inclusions. Electron microscopy shows increases in the number and size of lysosomes, hypertrophy of the Golgi(More)
This study investigated the possible mechanism by which dichlorvos may have caused forestomach tumours in mice in a chronic corn oil gavage cancer bioassay [NTP (1989) Toxicology and carcinogenesis studies of dichlorvos in F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice (gavage studies). National Toxicology Program Technical Report 342, NIH Publ. No 89-2598]. For this purpose,(More)
AIM We describe a training programme for non-specialists in focused echocardiography in the periresuscitation setting which represents an entry level in echocardiography training (FEEL) for emergency and critical care medicine physicians. METHODS A prospective observational study based upon the development of a periresuscitation echocardiography training(More)
Treatment of rats with 25 mg/kg/day of the neuroleptic drug chlorpromazine for periods of 7, 28 or 90 days causes a slow accumulation of lipid in large droplets in centrilobular hepatocytes. There is little or no damage to hepatocytes as assessed by changes in glucose-6-phosphatase activity and by electron microscopy. Furthermore there is no indication of a(More)
The pathogenesis of coeliac disease has been investigated by studying the response of small intestinal hydrolases in patients with coeliac disease subject to gluten challenge. Small intestinal biopsies taken before and two and a half hours after a gluten challenge in five patients with coeliac disease who had been maintained on a gluten free diet were(More)
