These initial results justify further clinical investigations with MCNU. Tolerance to and physical dependence on N-allylnormetazocine (NANM) in chronic spinal dogs.

These data suggest that high frequency MSI does not occur in these tumours, and that low frequency MSI, in contrast to cutaneous melanoma, is a rare event in malignant melanomas of the uveal tract. Earthquakes provide a good example of naturally occurring acute and chronic stress, and in this review we focus mainly on the effects of the Hanshin-Awaji earthquake on the cardiovascular system. This review considers the management of such patients in the emergency department, including appropriate, inappropriate, and phantom shocks as well as electrical storm.
