These suggestions are supported by a prior study showing that catalytically active GGT colocalized with ox-LDL and [CD68.sup.+] foam cells within atherosclerotic plaques from autoptic
studies and surgical endarterectomy .
Recent evidence indicates that TNF[alpha] released by activated microglia is essential in inducing the neurotoxic A1 phenotype in astrocytes that lose their trophic function  and A1 astroglial cells were found in autoptic
tissues of patients with different neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS .

No culture-based test was performed for the 11 patients whose IMD diagnosis was postmortem; instead, diagnosis was performed by using rPCR on autoptic
specimens, including blood, CSF, and formalin-fixed tissue samples (e.g., kidney, adrenal gland, brain, and lung tissue).
The combination of RMI and autoptic
data or postnatal follow-up, results in 98% sensitivity, 86% specificity, and 94% accuracy regarding the diagnosis of posterior fossa pathologies.
Furthermore, "truth" then is the domain that truly sets the civilized further apart, mainly being the publicly shared, reliable, demonstration of this reality--via autoptic
