Evidence of hydatid disease in a plains usa woodland burial

, : Evidence of hydatid disease in a plains usa woodland burial. Plains Anthropologist 30(107): 25-28

Hydatid disease is one of the more significant human parasitizations. This disease, caused by a canid tapeworm (Echinococcosus granulosus), is endemic to several regions of the world, primarily those where cattle and sheep herding is common. It is also found among hunting societies. The hydatid cysts which are formed by this infestation most often affect the lungs or liver, where mortality eventually occurs through organ dysfunction. Paleopathological evidence of this disease is rare because bone involvement is infrequent. Occasionally, the cyst dies and may then become calcified, leaving behind a record of the disease. A probable calcified hydatid cyst is described from a Woodland burial in southeastern North Dakota. The implications of hydatid disease on the Northern Plains are discussed.

J.; Pellerin, L., 2000: Modulation of the expression of monocarboxylate transporters and lactate dehydrogenase isoforms in mixed versus pure cultures of cortical astrocytes and neurons. Recent evidences suggest that lactate could be a preferential energy substrate transferred from astrocytes to neurons. This process implies the presence of transporters for lactate (monocarboxylate transporters or MCTs) on both cell types. In addi...

Anonymous, 2012: Perinatal exposure to lead induces morphological, ultrastructural and molecular alterations in the hippocampus. The aim of this paper is to examine if pre- and neonatal exposure to lead (Pb) may intensify or inhibit apoptosis or necroptosis in the developing rat brain. Pregnant experimental females received 0.1% lead acetate (PbAc) in drinking water from th...

Mounting evidence suggests a potential link between cocaine abuse, disruptions in hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis signaling, and neuroplasticity, but molecular mechanisms remain unknown. Neurogranin (Ng) is a gene containing a thyroid ho...

This paper aims to assess the association of markers for prenatal exposures with IDDM...

Sheridan, Robert, P.; Korzekwa, Kenneth, R.; Torres, Rhonda, A.; Walker, Matthew, J., 2007: Empirical regioselectivity models for human cytochromes p450 3A4, 2D6, and 2C9. Cytochromes P450 3A4, 2D6, and 2C9 metabolize a large fraction of drugs. Knowing where these enzymes will preferentially oxidize a molecule, the regioselectivity, allows medicinal chemists to plan how best to block its metabolism. We present QSAR...
