Endoneurial cell response and type of nerve fibre damage were studied after perineural injections of 7% phenol-aqua and pure glycerol. Our previous studies have shown that phenol and glycerol induce different types of nerve fibre degeneration after intraneural injections: phenol dissolves axons and Schwann cells inside the basal lamina tubes but glycerol(More)
BACKGROUND High-grade gliomas (HGGs) express somatostatin receptors (SSTR), rendering them candidates for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). Our purpose was to evaluate the potential of (68)Ga-DOTA-1-Nal(3)-octreotide ((68)Ga-DOTANOC) or (68)Ga-DOTA-Tyr(3)-octreotide ((68)Ga-DOTATOC) to target SSTR subtype 2 (SSTR2) in HGGs, and to study the(More)
Bioactive glass (BAG) and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) have been used in clinical applications. Antimicrobial BAG has the ability to attach chemically to surrounding bone, but it is not possible to bend, drill or shape BAG during the operation. PMMA has advantages in terms of shaping during the operation, but it does not attach chemically to the bone and(More)
Combined 5% phenol-glycerol has been used to treat cancer pain or spasticity and as sympathetic blocks. The major clinical problems have been the unpredictable effects on pain and on the duration of the blocks. Previously we have shown that intraneurally injected phenol induces haemorrhagic necrosis as well as dissolving of the nerve fibres. Glycerol, on(More)
