[the effect of blood-filled meshwork of arachnoid villi in connection with posttraumatic brain edema (author's transl)].based on the kellie-munro doctrine according to which the intracranial compartments--blood, brain, and csf--are in a state of pressure and volume equilibrium, we examined if traumatic lesions of the liquor absorption passages could change the intracranial pressure (icp). therefore, we reviewed the arachnoid villi and granulations of patients which died as a result of head injuries. in cases of traumatic subarachnoidal hemorrhages the meshwork of arachnoid villi are filled throughout with blood. ...2004419940

variations in ambient temperature can lead to incorrect prediction of the luteinizing hormone surge using urinary dipsticks (ovustick).to prevent laparoscopy from being timed after ovulation has occurred, the detection of luteinizing hormone (lh) surge in women being superovulated for in vitro fertilization is a key factor. urinary dipsticks provide patients with a simple means of monitoring their lh levels at home; however, many patients experience difficulties interpreting the blue color of these sticks and variations in color intensity. to investigate the temperature dependence of these lh urinary dipsticks, the ovustick tes ...20133580334

repression and turnover pattern fushi tarazu rna in the early drosophila embryo.embryonic expression of transcripts from the drosophila gene fushi tarazu (ftz) progresses through a series of spatial patterns, culminating in a seven-banded pattern at the cellular blastoderm stage. we studied the generation of this pattern using inhibitors of rna synthesis (alpha-amanitin) and protein synthesis (cycloheximide). injections of alpha-amanitin revealed that ftz rna turns over extremely rapidly in the embryo, and we think that this may be essential to effect rapid changes in ftz r ...20113096577
