Fourteen patients with AIDS were treated for 23 neurologic complications: four episodes of acute meningoencephalitis; eight episodes of subacute encephalopathy; two cases of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy; and nine cases of polyneuropathy. Nine patients were treated with 9-(1,3-dihydroxy-2-propoxymethyl)guanine (DHPG), one with(More)
The regional distribution and chromatographic characteristics of somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SLI) were studied in autopsy specimens of 8 human brains. SLI concentrations in 8 different regions of these brains ranged from (mean +/- S.E.) 756.3 +/- 363.4 pmol/g tissue in anterior hypothalamus to 1.6 +/- pmol/g in cerebellum. Chromatography of the(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine whether there is an abnormal expression of certain endogenous retroviruses in MS patients. For this purpose samples of peripheral blood mononuclear cells were obtained from 22 MS patients, a corresponding number of age and sex-matched healthy donors and five patients with other diseases affecting the central(More)
Neurotensin receptor autoradiography reveals dense binding in normal human substantia nigra. In nigra from patients with Parkinson's disease, nigral receptor binding is only about one-third of control values. 'Saturation' analysis suggests that these changes result from receptor loss. These results support a neurotensin-dopamine interaction in human(More)
An assessment was made of a bioassay for a multiple sclerosis (MS)-associated agent claimed to cause a depression in the proportion of circulating polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) in mice. Serum (1 sample), supernate from brain homogenates (four samples) and cerebrospinal fluid (four samples), and corresponding control materials, were tested under code(More)
