The incidence of oral candidosis has increased in recent years, largely as a result of the emergence of human immunodeficiency virus infection and the more widespread use of immunosuppressive chemotherapy. This development has been associated with a need for more reliable methods for the detection of Candida. The present study assessed the performance of a(More)
The distribution of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)A receptor/benzodiazepine receptor/Cl- channel complex in the rat brain was examined immunohistochemically using the specific antibody against purified GABAA receptor complex. The immunization of white albino rabbit with purified GABAA receptor complex resulted in the formation of specific antibody as(More)
The effects of single and repeated inhalations of acetaldehyde (AcAl) on spontaneous activity and the metabolisms of cerebral monoamines and neuroactive amino acids were investigated. Both single and repeated inhalations of AcAl induced a significant increase of spontaneous activity at the initial stage followed by the loss of motor activity and coma. The(More)
Neurochemical changes in cholinergic neurons in the striatum and ?-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic neurons in the midbrain, especially in the basal ganglia, have been examined following the intraperitoneal administration of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP), which is known to cause behavioral changes resembling those in Parkinson's disease(More)
