Crushing the nerve to the medial gastrocnemius (MG) muscle at birth and administering nerve growth factor to rats afterwards results in a reinnervated muscle with supernumerary muscle spindles, some of which must have formed de novo. Structure and…

Objectives.-To evaluate if caregivers are reliable informants concerning memory deficits in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Design.-Responses of caregivers of patients with probable AD and responses of healthy control subjects on a…

The factor structure of the Family-of-Origin Scale (FOS) was examined. The FOS is a 40-item instrument devised to measure perceptions of health in the family of origin. Subjects were 162 gay and bisexual males. A confirmatory factor analysis was…

As the incidence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection increases, health care practitioners are being called upon to counsel and educate patients regarding the complications associated with HIV infection. In addition, the anxiety levels of…

The distribution of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in the mouse olfactory bulb and olfactory epithelium, including the vomeronasal organ, was studied using an anti-NOS antibody, NADPH diaphorase histochemistry and in situ hybridization with NOS specific…

In the present study we employed current source density analysis to study the major excitatory/inhibitory pathways in rat primary visual cortex in vivo and in vitro. A natural photic stimulus was used in vivo and served as a baseline for…

There is increasing evidence that the herpes simplex virus may account for some gastric ulcer disease. To examine this possibility, 62 tissue biopsies from 21 patients were obtained during esophagogastroduodenoscopy for gastroduodenal ulcer disease…

Malignant melanoma involving the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is diagnosed premortem in only 4 per cent of patients with the disease, even though in autopsy series 60 per cent of patients who died of malignant melanoma have GI metastases. Usually,…

Cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase, the rate-determining enzyme in the bile acid biosynthesis pathway, is regulated in a negative feedback manner by hydrophobic bile salts returning to the liver via the portal circulation. The role of cholesterol in the…

Background. The objective of this study was to determine if the use of a patient survey or a chart stamp could increase the implementation of adolescent preventive health care in a family practice center. Methods. Subjects were all patients 13 to 18…

Various indirect forms of evidence are provided for the accuracy of synthetic estimation of the distribution of severely mentally disabled (SMD) adults across Ohio's mental health board areas. The board areas are public mental health jurisdictions…

Twenty intercalating agents were tested to examine the effects of intercalating dye-induced perturbations upon the antiviral activity of poly (adenylate-uridylate) [poly (A-U)]. Neither poly (A-U) alone nor each intercalative dye was an efficacious…

The role of ethidium bromide (EB) and propidium iodide (PI) in modulating the antiviral and interferon-inducing activities of poly(adenylate-uridylate) (poly (A-U )) was examined using the human foreskin fibro-blast-vesicular stomatitis virus…

The role of adriamycin (ADR) and daunomycin (DMN) in modulating the antiviral activity of poly (adeylate-uridylate) (poly (A-U)) was examined using a human foreskin fibroblast - vesicular stomatitis virus (HSF-VSV) bioassay in which the concentration…

In primary cultures of adult rat hepatocytes the level of cholesterol 7-alpha-hydroxylase steady-state mRNA markedly decreased by 72 h. However, the addition of L-thyroxine (T4) and dexamethasone synergistically returned cholesterol…
