INTRODUCTION Venous thromboembolism (VTE), including its most serious clinical subtype, pulmonary embolism (PE), is a potentially preventable disease. While current assessment tools do not include ethnicity as a risk factor, studies suggest that Asians have lower risk of VTE compared to Caucasians. This study aims to describe 2006 in-hospital and projected(More)
This study investigated the effects of exogenous nerve growth factor (NGF) on the survival and differentiation in primary culture of sensory neurons isolated from adult (6 months) and aged (2 years) mice. For neurons prepared from adult mice, a concentration effect was evident during a 2 week culture period: Neuronal counts in cultures supplemented with 25(More)
The present study investigated neuropeptide phenotypes of aged, as well as adult, mouse sensory neurons. Proportions of somatostatin (SOM), calcitonin gene related protein (CGRP) and neuropeptide Y (NPY) immunoreactive (ir)-neurons were lower in primary cultures from aged (2 years) mice than in those from adult (6 months) animals, but similar for substance(More)
The present study demonstrated, by detailed computer image analysis, that cultured aged (2 years) as well as adult (6 months) mouse sensory neurons retained a capacity for neurite extension throughout the 9-day period investigated. Neurites arose predominantly from intermediate- and large-sized neurons. The numbers of neurites, the neurite with the major or(More)
