Sixty patients with theophylline toxicity were hospitalized during a 2-year period. Eleven patients had hypercalcemia; their calcium levels returned to normal as theophylline levels fell to therapeutic or subtherapeutic levels. Serum calcium levels also fell significantly in three additional patients with theophylline toxicity, although the initial serum(More)
To assess liver steatosis, the controlled attenuation parameter (CAP; giving an estimate of ultrasound attenuation ∼3.5 MHz) is available with the M probe of the FibroScan. We report on the adaptation of the CAP for the FibroScan XL probe (center frequency 2.5 MHz) without modifying the range of values (100-400 dB/m). CAP validation was successfully(More)
The number and distribution of subpopulations of hilar interneurons containing neuropeptide Y (NPY), somatostatin (SOM), or gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) immunoreactivities were examined in the hilus of the dentate gyrus following removal of the cholinergic septal inputs. One, 2, 4, 8, 12, and 24 weeks after intracerebroventricular injections of(More)
Our previous studies have demonstrated that septohippocampal neurons in the rat septal complex have substantial glial coverage and have a number of synaptic associations with catecholaminergic terminals. While similar ultrastructural characteristics are observed for septal cholinergic neurons, the morphology and synaptic relations of catecholaminergic(More)
The long-distance corticocortical connections between visual and nonvisual sensory areas that arise from pyramidal neurons located within layer V can be considered as a subpopulation of feedback connections. The purpose of the present study is to determine if layer V pyramidal neurons from visual and nonvisual sensory cortical areas that project onto the(More)
A micro-latex fixation test (LFT) for the determination of rheumatoid factor (RF) is presented. Its advantages compared to similar tests are greater precision, simplicity, increased sensitivity, lower cost, reproducibility and adaptibility to large-scale testing. Micro-LFT titres are presented from a wide range of sample populations. The majority of normal(More)
