The aim of this study was to analyze patients by deep sequencing the human T cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) long terminal repeat (LTR) region in order to determine if minor and/or major mutations in this promoter region might be associated with tropical spastic paraparesis (TSP)/human T cell lymphotropic virus type 1-associated myelopathy (HAM) outcome or proviral load or HTLV-1 expression. This study is a cross-sectional analyze of 29 HTLV-1-infected patients with TSP/HAM or asymptomatic carriers...

Landsat-TM (Theme Mapper) and EOS (Earth Observing System)-MODIS (MODerate resolution Imaging Spectrora-diometer) Terra/Aqua images were used to monitor the macro-algae (Ulva prolifera) bloom since 2007 at the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea. At the turbid waters of Northern Jiangsu Shoal, there is strong spectral mixing behavior, and satellite images with finer spatical resolution are more effective in detection of macro-algae patches. Macro-algae patches were detected by the Landsat images for the first time at the Sheyang estuary where is dominated by very turbid waters...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to review the literature to indications of botulinum toxin type A in children. METHOD: We review the international literature from 1990 to 2002 by querying the Pubmed database with the keywords "children" and "botulinum toxin". RESULTS: Two hundred and forty-eight articles are retrieved. We selected the most relevant 64 articles among them. Several questions remain pending: which optimal dose, which periodicity for injections, which optimal age to prolong efficiency? The main criteria to estimate efficiency is functional ability improvement...

PURPOSE: Is to evaluate the indications of Faden operation and the postoperative results. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We studied a number of 32 patients with convergent strabismus operated in the Universitary Eye Hospital from Cluj, during 1998-2000 at whom we performed Faden operation with conventional surgery on the medial rectus. The anAestesia was with ketamine i.v. RESULTS: The majority of patients where females (62.50%) with ages between 0-14 years...

Sixteen male Fischer-344N rats were trained on a eight-arm radial maze task for food reinforcement. The effects of various doses of baclofen (1.25 or 2.50 mg/kg) and scopolamine (0.188, 0.375, and 0.750 mg/kg) were determined alone and in combination. Relative to vehicle controls, baclofen alone did not affect performance in the radial arm maze (number correct in the first eight responses, total errors) or the time required to complete the maze. Scopolamine alone decreased the number of correct responses in the first eight arm choices, while increasing both the number of errors and the time necessary to complete the maze...

To assess the bronchospastic component in patients with chronic obstructive lung disease, measurement of vital capacity and forced expiratory volume (FEV) before and after inhalation of a beta-agonist is a widely used procedure. In a minority of patients this simple inhalation test yields a negative result, suggesting the possibility of unresponsive airways. The purpose of this study was to explore th significance of a negative test result by examining pulmonary mechanics in 17 patients before and after inhalation...
