Spinal cord injury (SCI) is an extremely debilitating condition, leading to sensory and motor dysfunction below the level of the injury. Presently, there are few effective treatments for SCI. This is in part due to the immense complexity of SCI pathophysiology. Thus, combined research approaches...
Hyperthermia worsens outcome after ischemia. While it seems reasonable that hyperthermia would also worsen outcome after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), clinical studies attempting to find a causative relationship between hyperthermia and outcome have been inconclusive. We induced ICH with an...
Does botulinum toxin type A alter the consequences of recurrent laryngeal nerve transection in the rat model?Download
Introduction: Laryngeal paralysis (LP) is a disorder that impacts significantly the health and the quality of life of patients. It causes a dysfunction of vocal folds (VF) movement as a result of affection of the laryngeal neural supply. While several theories have been proposed to explain the...
Glucosamine Anti-Inflammatory Dose-Effect Correlation and Its Influence on the Renin-Angiotensin System Components and Arachidonic Acid Metabolites under Inflammatory Condition in the Rat with Adjuvant ArthritisDownload
Crystalline glucosamine (GlcN) sulfate salt formulation is approved as a prescription drug with anti-inflammatory effects for the management of osteoarthritis (OA) in the European Union, while it is considered as a nutraceutical in North America. The effectiveness of GlcN for ameliorating the...
Influence of lipids (arachidonic acid and cholesterol) on calcium signalling in rodent pancreatic beta cellsDownload
Ca2+ is an important mediator of stimulus-secretion coupling in beta cells of the pancreatic islets, which secrete insulin in response to elevation in plasma glucose concentration. I studied the actions of two lipids, arachidonic acid (AA) and cholesterol, on enzymatically-dissociated single...
