AIM To investigate the protective effects of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and Nomega-Nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) on aluminium phosphide (AlP) poisoning induced hemodynamic changes, myocardial oxygen free radical injury and on survival time in rats. METHODS AlP (12.5 mg/kg) was administered intragastrically under urethane anaesthesia. The effect of(More)
Background-Endocardial (EE) and myocardial capillary vascular endothelial (myocap VE) cells have been shown to modulate the contractile characteristics of myocardium in a calcium-dependent manner. We evaluated the endothelial-myocardial interaction in the rat postinfarction myocardial infarction (MI) model and the effects of captopril. Methods and(More)
Proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells are being developed for automotive (motive and/or auxiliary) and stationary (residential) power applications. PEM fuel cells operate either on pure hydrogen or a hydrogen-rich gas with little or no carbon monoxide. In the near term, fuel cells will need to be operated using our existing hydrocarbon fuel(More)
Proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells are being developed for both automotive (motive and/or auxiliary) and stationary (residential) power applications. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) also are being pursued for a number of power generation applications, including stationary (residential and utility), and automotive (auxiliary) power sources. For both of(More)
