The aim of the present study was to examine quantitatively whether two calcium-binding proteins, calbindin D28k and calretinin, are localized in oxytocin and vasopressin neurons of the supraoptic nucleus of the male rat. We used a triple-labeling immunofluorescence method with a confocal laser scanning microscope. Of the oxytocin-labeled cells, 70% were(More)
We used triple-labeling immunohistochemistry in rat midbrain sections to identify dopaminergic neurons that contain either one or both of the calcium-binding proteins, calretinin (CR) and calbindin-D28k (CB). Midbrain dopaminergic neurons were immunohistochemically labeled for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), CR, and CB. In the substantia nigra pars compacta(More)
We examined whether dopamine-degrading activity of monoamine oxidase (MAO) is present in dopaminergic neurons of the rat brain. We employed a double-labeling procedure combining immunohistochemistry for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and enzyme histochemistry for MAO activity using dopamine as a substrate. The following dopaminergic cell groups were examined:(More)
We used an experimental rabbit model of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment to compare the onset, quality, and duration of chorioretinal adhesions obtained by transvitreal application of N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate mixed with iophendylate with those obtained by transscleral retinal cryopexy. The chorioretinal adhesions produced by the cyanoacrylate tissue(More)
Satoh et al. (1978a) demonstrated that Barrington's nucleus in the rat corresponds to the nucleus laterodorsalis tegmenti (TLD), immediately ventromedial to the rostral pole of the locus coeruleus (LC). To confirm this finding and to identify the course of the tracts and their terminals, we injected small amounts of HRP into the TLD, LC and the lumbar and(More)
STUDY DESIGN Preliminary study. PURPOSE To assess the association of neuropathic pain with chronic low back pain (LBP) and the effect of pregabalin on neuropathic pain in the elderly. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Of those with chronic LBP, 37% were predominantly presenting with neuropathic pain in young adults. Pregabalin is effective for pain in patients(More)
Combination of glyoxylic acid perfusion and postfixation in permanganate was used in an electron microscopic study of the locus coeruleus (LC) of the rat to give good preservation of fine structure and a reproducible demonstration of noradrenaline (NA) storage granules. Medium-sized LC cells (18 x 30 microns) contained a moderate number of small granular(More)
The aim of the present study is to examine whether noradrenergic neurons of the locus coeruleus (LC) of the rat contain monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity. Sections were processed initially for MAO enzyme histochemistry using tyramine as a substrate, followed by fluorescence immunohistochemistry for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH). In the LC, virtually all(More)
OBJECTIVE Little is known about the progression of spinal schwannomas. The aim of this study was to determine the natural progression of spinal schwannomas and establish the risk of tumor growth. METHODS This study retrospectively analyzed data from 23 patients (12 men and 11 women, 40-89 years old) with schwannomas detected by MRI. The mean follow-up(More)
STUDY DESIGN Self-assembling peptide gel (SPG-178) provides new evidence for the role of a scaffold for treatment of the spinal cord through induction of neuroprotective factors. OBJECTIVE To verify the reproducibility of SPG-178 as scaffold after spinal cord injury, we examine the characteristics of SPG-178 and protective effect on neural cells in vitro(More)
