Evidence that the stimulatory effect of neurotensin on dopamine release in rat nucleus accumbens slices is independent of dopamine D2-receptor activation
Neurotensin (NT, 10-9 M and 10-7 M) increased the electrically stimulated release of [3H]dopamine (DA) in rat nucleus accumbens slices. This effect was not altered by activation of DA D2-receptors with high or low ...
Treatment of multiple rib fractures. Randomized controlled trial comparing ventilatory with nonventilatory management
We studied the treatment of multiple rib fractures in NIC, comparing ventilatory with nonventilatory methods in 69 patients who were randomly allocated to one of the following two treatments: (1) a CPAP mask combined with ...
Digital papular calcific elastosis: A histopathological, histochemical and ultrastructural study of 20 patients
In 1960, 5 patients were reported with a condition termed 'degenerative collagenous plaques of the hands'. Ultraviolet light and chronic pressure seem to be the inciting factors. Clinically, it is characterized by keratotic, ...
Exstrophy of the testis
Among the anomalies of testicular descent exstrophy of the testis appears to be the most rare. We describe a full-term male newborn with the right testis and spermatic cord prolapsed from a skin defect at the neck of the ...
A true hermaphrodite with some unusual features
A fifteen-month-old boy with ambiguous external genitalia was found to have a 46XX karyotype, an ovotestis in the right labioscrotal fold, and an absent left gonad. He also had a rudimentary uterus and fallopian tubes and ...
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type IIb: A clinicopathological report
The clinicopathological findings in a 12-year-old boy with multiple endocrine neoplasia type IIb (MEN-IIb) are presented. He demonstrated the characteristics of a Marfanoid habitus and had mucosal neuromas of the lips, ...
Onyalai at Rundu, Namibia 1981-1988: age, sex, morbidity, mortality and seasonal variation of 612 hospitalized patients
Of 51263 admissions to Rundu State Hospitala in Namibia between 1981 and 1988, 612 (1.19%) were diagnosed as onylai. The annual incidence varied between 0.96% and 1.66% of all admissions. The female to male ration was 3.2. ...

The effect of selective noradrenergic denervation on thyrotropin secretion in the rat
The effect of DSP4[N-(2-chloroethyl)-N-ethyl-2 bromobenzylamine], a neurotoxin which selectively lesions noradrenergic projections from the locus coeruleus, on thyrotropin (TSH) secretion was investigated in the rat. DSP4 ...
