Schick RM, Jolesz F, Barnes PD, Macklis JD. 1989. MR diagnosis of dural venous sinus thrombosis complicating L-asparaginase therapy. Computerized medical imaging and graphics : the official journal of the Computerized Medical Imaging Society. 13(4):319-27. Pubmed: 2743289


Dural venous sinus thrombosis is an important complication of L-asparaginase chemotherapy. The diagnosis and followup of this condition, using spin echo and fast imaging techniques, is described in three patients. Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging is a rapid, noninvasive technique for diagnosis and follow-up of this condition. Fast imaging techniques can improve the assessment of these patients.

Jeffrey Macklis investigates molecular controls and mechanisms over neuron subtype specification, development, diversity, axon guidance-circuit formation, and pathology in the cerebral cortex. His lab seeks to apply developmental controls toward brain and spinal cord regeneration and directed differentiation for in vitro mechanistic modeling using human assembloids.
