  • Urinary bladder function and somatic sensitivity in vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-/- mice.

    Journal of molecular neuroscience : MN 2008 Nov

    Authors: Studeny S,
    Abstract
    Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) is an immunomodulatory neuropeptide widely distributed in neural pathways that regulate micturition. VIP is also an endogenous anti-inflammatory agent that has been suggested for the development of therapies for inflammatory disorders. In the present study, we examined urinary bladder function and hindpaw and pelvic sensitivity in VIP(-/-) and littermate wildtype (WT) controls. We demonstrated increased bladder mass and fewer but larger urine spots on filter paper in VIP(-/-) mice. Using cystometry in conscious, unrestrained mice, VIP(-/-) mice exhibited increased void volumes and shorter intercontraction intervals with continuous intravesical infusion of saline. No differences in transepithelial resistance or water permeability were demonstrated between VIP(-/-) and WT mice; however, an increase in urea permeability was demonstrated in VIP(-/-) mice. With the induction of bladder inflammation by acute administration of cyclophosphamide, an exaggerated or prolonged bladder hyperreflexia and hindpaw and pelvic sensitivity were demonstrated in VIP(-/-) mice. The changes in bladder hyperreflexia and somatic sensitivity in VIP(-/-) mice may reflect increased expression of neurotrophins and/or proinflammatory cytokines in the urinary bladder. Thus, these changes may further regulate the neural control of micturition.

  • Liquid crystal thermography: quantitative studies of abnormalities in carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Neurology 1989 Nov

    Authors: Meyers S,
    Abstract
    We performed liquid crystal thermography (LCT) in 38 normal hands and in 23 hands with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) documented by nerve conduction studies (NCS). Two of the authors unaware of the clinical situation read the 2 palmar thermograms taken at a 5-minute interval. They determined the absolute temperatures of the tip of digit 1 (D1), D2, D3, D4, D5, and of the thenar and hypothenar eminences. We calculated the temperature differences (absolute values throughout) between any 2 of these 7 sites, and computed the median index (MI = [D1 - D2] + [D1 - D3] + [D2 - D3]). Comparison of the control and CTS groups revealed greater temperature differences in CTS between D1 - D3, D1 - D4, D3 - D5, D4 - D5, and MI. There was a marked overlap between the 2 groups. Comparison of individual CTS hands with controls revealed definite thermographic abnormalities in 0 of 9 hands with mild NCS abnormalities, and in 7 of 14 hands with marked NCS abnormalities. These findings indicate that the sensitivity of LCT in CTS is low compared with NCS, and previous favorable reports concerning thermography in CTS may have been due to lack of control series or absence of quantitation.
