The effects of halothane versus isoflurane on distribution of cerebral blood flow (CBF) were compared using 14C-iodoantipyrine autoradiography. Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to 1 MAC of either halothane (n = 8) or isoflurane (n = 7) in 33% O2/balance nitrogen for 55 min prior to determination of CBF. Normoxia, normothermia, and normocapnia were(More)
Nitrous oxide and halogenated anaesthetic agents are often administered concurrently during neuroanaesthesia. To assess the interactive effects of these agents on cerebral blood flow (CBF), we have measured CBF by 14C-iodoantipyrine autoradiography, in normocapnic rats receiving either 0.5 or 1.0 MAC of volatile agent alone (halothane or isoflurane) or 0.5(More)
The effect of volatile anesthetics on benzodiazepine receptor binding was examined autoradiographically in the rat brain both in vivo and in vitro with the use of [3H]-Ro-15-1788, a benzodiazepine antagonist. For in vitro studies, slide-mounted brain sections were incubated at 37 degrees C in Tris buffer (50 mM, pH 7.4) with [3H]-Ro-15-1788 (flumazenil,(More)
A cranial window conforming to the contours of the underlying cerebral cortical surface was implanted successfully in 18 cats. Subsequently the left middle cerebral artery (MCA) was occluded inside the sealed cranium and changes in the superficial cortical vasculature were related to measurements of intracranial pressure (ICP), measured extradurally, and to(More)
Little is known about the influence of infiltrating gliomas on the responsivity of the cerebral circulation to anesthetic agents. Therefore we designed a study to address this issue. Male Fischer 344 rats were assigned to two tumor groups and one sham group. In the two tumor groups, glioma cells were stereotactically injected into the right striatum;(More)
The study presented was conducted following the reproductive study guideline OECD Guideline 416 Two-Generation Reproduction Toxicity Study. Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to 2000, 10,000 and 50,000 ppm of HFC-245fa. There was an unexpected mortality of lactating dams in the medium and high dose group beginning at day 10 of lactation. Statistically(More)
The effects of equipotent doses of halothane (1.05%) versus isoflurane (1.38%) anesthesia on CMRglc were determined autoradiographically using the 2-[14C]deoxyglucose technique in the rat. Eight anatomically standardized coronal sections were selected and digitized from the autoradiographs. Mean CMRglc was determined for hemispheric, neocortical, and(More)
We analyzed the prognostic impact of the most frequent genetic abnormalities detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization in 101 patients with multiple myeloma, who underwent allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) after melphalan/fludarabine-based reduced conditioning. The incidences of abnormalities in the present analysis were as(More)
This 90-day study was aimed at characterizing the differences in biological activity between a crystalline ground reference quartz (DQ12) and a quartz with occluded surfaces (quartz isolate) obtained from a clay deposit formed 110 to 112 million years ago. In different test groups, rats were dosed with the same total mass and quartz level by intratracheal(More)
While previous studies have identified a protective effect for barbiturate anesthesia during focal cerebral ischemia, no such effect has been demonstrated for isoflurane. To better understand the effects of these anesthetics on cerebral blood flow and metabolism that might have relevance to their respective potential for cerebral protection, fasted(More)
