Arthrogryposis, spillage of various substances in the urine, and conjugated hyperbilirubinemia define an ARC core phenotype, in some patients(More)
The effect of ketamine on sympathetic ganglion transmission has been studied using the guineapig isolated hypogastric nerve-vas deferens preparation. Ketamine produced a dose-dependent depression in the response to preganglionic stimulation (IC50 2.05 X 10--4 mol litre--1). No change in the response to postganglionic stimulation was recorded. The(More)
Thousands of refugees from around the world resettle in the United States every year. Many refugees suffer from mental health disorders as a result of experiences living in or escaping from their turbulent homelands, and many also experience mental health issues as they settle in their new host countries. As such, it is important to intervene during the(More)
The effect of disopyramide on cholinergic transmission has been studied using the frog isolated abdominis rectus preparation and the guinea pig isolated vas deferens hypogastric nerve preparation. Disopyramide (2 X 10(-5) mol litre-1) reduced the response of the abdominis rectus to carbachol (1.36 X 10(-6)--4.8 X 10(-5) mol litre-1). Furthermore,(More)
