Expression of tissue factor and tissue factor pathway inhibitor in rats lungs with lipopolysaccharide-induced disseminated intravascular coagulation.
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a frequent complication of endotoxin shock, and modulation of endothelial cell hemostatic properties has been proposed to play an important role in itsExpand

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Bone Marrow Changes after Irradiation
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVESSignal changes of irradiated bone marrow are thought to represent fatty change. However, more recent studies have indicated that other factors may contribute to these signalExpand

Novel distribution of adrenomedullin-immunoreactive cells in human tissues
Abstract Adrenomedullin (AM) is a novel hypotensive and vasodilator peptide. We previously examined the localization of AM in human, rat, and porcine tissues using a polyclonal antibody againstExpand

Fibrin-rich and platelet-rich thrombus formation on neointima: recombinant tissue factor pathway inhibitor prevents fibrin formation and neointimal development following repeated balloon injury of
Thrombus formation and neointimal growth are the critical events in restenosis after balloon angioplasty. However, the responses of diseased vessels to injuries caused by balloon angioplasty have notExpand

Inhibitory effects of prostacyclin analogue, TFC-132, on aortic neointimal thickening in vivo and smooth muscle cell proliferation in vitro.
Effects of a new prostacyclin analogue, TFC-132, on neointimal thickening following intimal mechanical injury and on the proliferation of cultured aortic smooth muscle cells (SMCs) were studied. TheExpand

Contribution of the endothelium to intimal thickening in normocholesterolemic and hypercholesterolemic rabbits.
Endothelial cell injury is considered to be a primary event in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. In this study, we investigated the aortic intimal lesion after balloon catheterization inExpand

Aortic endothelial cell damage induced by β-VLDL and macrophages in vitro
Abstract We performed an in vitro study to assess damage to swine aortic endothelial cells by rabbit β-VLDL and/or rabbit peritoneal macrophages. Incubation of cultured aortic endothelial cells withExpand

Pulmonary microthromboembolism by injection of sonicated autologous blood in rabbits with splenic artery ligations.
Chronic pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) has been reported to play an important role in cardiac failure in thalassemic patients after splenectomy. However, the mechanism of PTE in these patientsExpand

Three Cases of Malignant Melanoma Arising on Burn Scars
It is well known that up to 2% of chronic burn scar lesions can transform into malignant tumors. Most of them are squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and, more occasionally, basal cell carcinoma (BCC). TheExpand

The role of tissue factor in the pathogenesis of thrombosis and atherosclerosis.
TF is a major regulator of coagulation and hemostasis. High levels of TF antigen and activity are detected in atherosclerotic lesions, particularly in the advanced lesions. When the plaques areExpand
