Multiplex polymerase chain reaction for the detection of mycobacterial DNA in cases of tuberculosis and sarcoidosis
The aims of the present study were: (1) to design a sensitive and specific polymerase chain reaction-based method that would allow detection of most common human typical and atypical mycobacterial strains and (2) to apply ...
Cyclopia and exadactyly: CT and MRI findings
Cyclopia is a congenital abnormality consisting of fused orbits and a single eye and is the most extreme form of alobar holoprosencephaly. The present case describes the CT and MRI findings in the skull of a 33-week-old ...
Skeletal muscle relaxants in anaesthesiology
During the 16th century, European explorers found that the Indians along the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers were using an arrow poison, named curare, that produced death by skeletal paralysis. Curare is one of several different ...
Mutated α-synuclein gene in two greek kindreds with familial pd: Incomplete penetrance?
The G209A mutation in the α-synuclein gene has been associated with autosomal dominant PD (ADPD) in a family from Contursi, Italy, and three apparently unrelated Greek families. Several groups around the world failed to ...
Leptin concentrations in normal women following bilateral ovariectomy
To study the relationships between gonadal steroids and leptin, 20 women with normal cycles were investigated during the postoperative period following a laparotomy. Fourteen women underwent bilateral ovariectomy plus total ...
Improved detection of Dirofilaria repens DNA by direct polymerase chain reaction
Diagnosis of human infection by Dirofilaria repens, depends mainly on microscopic evaluation of tissue cross-sections and the macroscopic characteristics of the worm. Tissue degeneration and/or poor specimen preparation ...
