Several neuroimaging studies have revealed that the brains of schizophrenic patients exhibit abnormalities in white matter pathways. Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods, such as T2-weighted imaging and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), it is possible to objectively quantify white matter structural properties in patients as well as the(More)
Xenopus has been used as an experimental model to evaluate the contribution of adaptive cellular immunity in amphibian host susceptibility to the emerging ranavirus FV3. Conventional histology and immunohistochemistry reveal that FV3 has a strong tropism for the proximal tubular epithelium of the kidney and is rarely disseminated elsewhere in Xenopus hosts(More)
18 male patients under betablocker therapy adapted to their individual stage of hypersympathicotonic circulatory regulation disturbances were tested in a motor-vehicle simulator to find out possible changes of their driving ability. Besides observing driving-style and reactions, the following parameters were controlled: blood pressure, time of pulse waves,(More)
MicroRNAs are short noncoding RNAs involved in regulation of gene expression. Certain microRNAs, including miR-122, seem to have ideal properties as biomarkers due to good stability, high tissue specificity, and ease of detection across multiple species. Recent reports have indicated that miR-122 is a highly liver-specific marker detectable in serum after(More)
A cutaneous response (localized swelling and/or erythema of the skin) has been noted in dog toxicology studies in which multiple, unrelated compounds were administered orally with copovidone as a vehicle. The response has been noted in studies with 6 different test items that are structurally unrelated and span several different therapeutic indications(More)
