PURPOSE The parapapillary gamma zone has been defined as the parapapillary region without Bruch's membrane. We examined which morphologic parameters are associated with the presence and size of the parapapillary gamma zone. METHODS Using fundus photographs and spectral-domain optical coherence tomographic images of the optic nerve head in the(More)
Currently, conventional enzyme immunoassays which use manual gold immunoassays and colloidal tests (GICTs) are used as screening tools to detect Treponema pallidum (syphilis), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), and HIV-2 in patients undergoing surgery.

The major cell types expressing Golli in the immune system are the T‑lineage cells. The aim of the current study was to investigate the changes of gene expression in T lymphocytes subsequent to downregulation of the Golli‑myelin basic protein (MBP) gene. RNA interference technology was used to suppress the expression of Golli‑MBP in Jurkat cells and DNA(More)
BACKGROUND To explore the hypothesis that burning mouth syndrome (BMS) probably is a neuropathic pain condition, thermal and mechanical sensory and pain thresholds were tested and compared with age- and gender-matched control participants using a standardized battery of psychophysical techniques. METHODS Twenty-five BMS patients (men: 8, women: 17, age:(More)
BACKGROUND Intracarotid propofol infusion was studied in canines as an experimental basis for application of propofol in the Wada test. METHODS First, efficacy and side-effects of propofol anaesthesia were studied in eight mongrel dogs that received intracarotid and i.v. propofol infusions for 30 min according to a cross-over design. Auditory evoked(More)
