The Radiographic Vertebral Index (RVI) was assessed as a possible outcome measure for bone disease in myeloma by evaluating within and between reader reproducibility. Four readers (2 radiologists and 2 clinical hematologists) independently scored, on two separate occasions, the RVI on 40 radiographs from patients with myeloma. Each vertebra from third(More)
Giant lymph node hyperplasia (GLNH) or Castleman disease is a heterogenous group of atypical lymphoproliferative disorders. Two main histologic variants, the hyaline vascular variant and the plasma cell variant, have been recognized. Although localized GLNH can often be managed successfully with surgery, optimal therapy for multifocal disease has yet to be(More)
In the present study, we assessed IL-17 levels at 3 and 8 days following various forms of injuries to the sciatic nerve and related the cytokine levels to the pain behaviors associated with the injuries. The four experimental models employed were chronic constriction injury (CCI), partial sciatic ligation (PSL), complete sciatic transection (CST) and(More)

Comprehending orofacial referred pain requires an understanding of the neuroanatomy of the trigeminal nerve and associated cranial nerves. It also requires knowledge of the concept of neuronal convergence as well as the recognition that the caudalis is laminated and is therefore responsible for sensory receptive fields-that one interneuron may receive(More)
