The authors carried out a door-to-door survey to determine the prevalence of epilepsy among 55,000 people in China.

The prevalence of active epilepsy was 4.6/1000, and 63% of people with active epilepsy had not received antiepileptic treatment in the week(More)

In baboons the right cerebral hemisphere was embolised by a shower of microemboli, immediately followed by one large embolus designed to occlude the middle cerebral artery (MCA). One hour after embolism a significant, though small, reduction in blood flow and oxygen consumption of the embolised hemisphere was recorded, at which time the animals were killed(More)
The brain and plasma levels of chlordecone were monitored after daily oral administration of chlordecone at 10 to 50 mg/kg/day. At a low dose, the plasma level of chlordecone increased steadily and the brain level showed a steady increase and then a plateau. However, at the higher dose the brain and plasma concentrations of chlordecone decayed biphasically.(More)
