“We describe two patients with epilepsy who presented with nonepileptic seizures (NES) when started on levetiracetam (LEV), which disappeared or significantly decreased when LEV was discontinued. NES are selleck chemical traditionally attributed to psychic trauma often after physical or sexual abuse, whereas the psychiatric side effects of levetiracetam largely encompass depression, hallucinations, and psychosis. We conclude that NES are a rare side effect of LEV treatment and part of the spectrum of behavioral changes observed with LEV treatment. (C) 2010

“A numerical investigation of current-voltage characteristics (IVCs) of the ideal metal-semiconductor Schottky-barrier contact (SBC) metal-n-GaAs in the wide range of temperatures, contact diameters and doping levels considering the influence of image force and tunneling BAY 57-1293 mouse effects is presented. The analysis is carried out on the basis of model, taking
into account the nonlinear bias dependence of the barrier height (generally, effective one) and assuming that the SBC parameters are determined at constant (specified) current value in the temperature or contact diameter ranges, which corresponds practically to experimental conditions of measurement of SBC parameters. It is shown that such SBCs have behavior peculiarities typical for most real contacts: the “”low temperature anomaly”" (the
ideality factor n increase and the barrier height phi(bm) (measured by the saturation current) decrease with temperature decrease), edge effects (increase of n and decrease of phi(bm) with contact diameter decrease), the inverse connection between phi(bm) and n, when the growth of one of them is followed by the decrease of the other. A simple and very precise analytic representation of the IVC is given for the SBC in wide temperature and doping level ranges. This representation agrees closely with known experimental results. The high-accuracy method of the barrier height determining is proposed on this basis. (C) 2011 American Institute of Physics. [doi: 10.1063/1.3587233]“
“Aim: To assess the effects of ginseng saponin on relaxation of the bladder and prostatic urethra and to determine its mechanism CA3 chemical structure of action. Materials and Methods: For the in vitro study, prostatic urethra muscle strips were harvested from 18 male New Zealand rabbits. The strips were mounted in organ baths and connected to force displacement transducers. After stabilization, maximal tissue contractions were obtained by the application of phenylepinephrine to the urethra strips, and a dose-response curve for ginseng saponin was constructed (10(-6)-10(-2) m). After pretreatment of urethra strips with N-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), another dose-response curve for ginseng saponin was constructed.
