This experiment studied cerebral cortical morphology in rats living in a crowded-enriched condition. Three groups of 60-day-old, male Long-Evans rats were divided accordingly: 12 rats, 3 per small cage (32 X 20 X 20 cm), standard colony condition; 12 rats in a single, large, enrichment cage with "toys" (70 X 70 X 45 cm), enriched condition; and 36 rats in a(More)
The selective bradykinin analogue, RMP-7, transiently increases the permeability of the blood brain barrier and the delivery of hydrophilic agents into brain tumours. In 87 recurrent glioma patients (WHO Grade III/IV, median age 46, Karnofsky 70%) clinical and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) responses to i.v. cycles (q 28 days) of RMP-7 (300 ng/kg given as(More)
INTRODUCTION In recurrent malignant glioma, early imaging response to two courses of chemotherapy is generally considered to be predictive of good survival. We studied the relationships between initial tumour volume and speed of imaging response to chemotherapy in malignant glioma. METHODS In 43 chemotherapy naïve patients, 26 glioblastoma multiforme(More)
People at risk from coronary heart disease and large bowel cancer are drawn from the same urbanised, industrialised Western populations. Whilst changes in blood lipids are well recognised in heart disease, little is known of their role in large bowel cancer. This study investigates serial alterations in blood lipids in the 1,2-dimethylhydrazine (DMH) rat(More)
