The blood-brain barrier (BBB), which prevents the entry into the central nervous system (CNS) of most water-soluble molecules over 500 Da, is often disrupted after trauma. Post-traumatic BBB disruption may have important implications for prognosis and therapy. Assessment of BBB status is not routine in clinical practice because available techniques are(More)
Radiation exposure induces cell and tissue damage, causing local and systemic inflammatory responses. Because the inflammasome pathway is triggered by cell death and danger-associated molecular patterns, we hypothesized that the inflammasome may signal acute and chronic immune responses to radiation. Using a mouse radiation model, we show that radiation(More)
BACKGROUND The on-field diagnosis of sports-related concussion (SRC) is complicated by the lack of an accurate and objective marker of brain injury. PURPOSE To compare subject-specific changes in the astroglial protein, S100B, before and after SRC among collegiate and semi-professional contact sport athletes, and compare these changes to differences in(More)
BACKGROUND Seven years after implementing a new curriculum an evaluation was performed to explore possibilities for improvements. PURPOSES To analyze students' study habits in relation to exam frequency and to evaluate effectiveness of instruction. METHODS Time spent on self study (TSS) and the quantity of instruction (QI) was assessed during the(More)
BACKGROUND The prognosis of patients with progressive meningioma after failure of surgery and radiotherapy is poor. METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the safety and efficacy of somatostatin-receptor (SSTR)-targeted radionuclide therapy ((177)Lu-DOTATATE [n = 16], (90)Y-DOTATOC [n = 3], or both [n = 1]) in patients with progressive, treatment-refractory(More)
BACKGROUND The use of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) in neurosurgery has improved patient safety and outcomes. However, a pitfall in the use of IONM remains unsolved. Currently, there is no feasible way for surgeons to interpret IONM waves themselves during operations. Instead, they have to rely on verbal feedback from a(More)
