Dehydroascorbic acid, a blood–brain barrier transportable form of vitamin C, mediates potent cerebroprotection in experimental stroke
Neuronal injury in ischemic stroke is partly mediated by cytotoxic reactive oxygen species. Although the antioxidant ascorbic acid (AA) or vitamin C does not penetrate the blood–brain barrier (BBB),Expand

Intraocular pressure and aqueous outflow facility in light-induced avian buphthalmos.
Chicks reared under continuous light from hatching develop buphthalmos by 16 weeks of age. This eye enlargement was found to be associated with increased intraocular pressure and impaired aqueousExpand

Senile disciform macular degeneration and smoking.
We studied the smoking habits of 114 patients with senile disciform degeneration of the macula. The mean age at onset of blindness in the first eye was 64 years in those currently smoking; this wasExpand

Genesis of light-induced avian glaucoma.
Light-induced avian glaucoma is characterized by eye enlargement, high intraocular pressure (IOP), low outflow facility (C), and reduced aqueous space volume. In this study we have identified severalExpand

Sympathetic Denervation Effects on Avian Eye Development and Aqueous Fluid Dynamics 1
Sympathetic denervation of the eye in experimental mammals, either by surgical means (1, 2) , or pharmacologically (3), has been reported to cause a decrease in intraocular pressure (IOP), anExpand

Thalamic amnesia: Korsakoff syndrome due to left thalamic infarction
In order to support the concept that a lesion of the thalamus is sufficient to cause a Korsakoff syndrome, we are presenting 5 patients, all of whom developed the syndrome after sustaining a leftExpand

Free amino acids in tissues of the skate Raja erinacea and the stingray Dasyatis sabina: effects of environmental dilution.
Concentrations of individual free amino acids were determined in various tissues of the skate (Raja erinacea) and the stingray (Dasyatis sabina), and the relationship of cellular free amino acidExpand
