To determine whether the oxidation of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) derived from renal tissue lipids can support renal function, we perfused isolated rat kidneys with a substrate-free Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate solution containing 6 g/100 ml substrate-free (defatted) albumin. We measured GFR, TNa+, and Qo2 at 7-min intervals from 15 to 99 min after(More)
When the endotoxin-lipopolysaccharide (LPS) derived from the cell wall of gram-negative bacteria is given to the rat in vivo, there are prompt, marked decreases in glomerular filtration rate (GFR), renal blood flow (RBF) and % Na+ reabsorption (%T-Na+). However, it has not been determined whether the endotoxin itself has a direct effect on these renal(More)
Two patients who developed acute lymphoblastic leukaemia following polycythaemia rubra vera (PRV) are described. In both cases the diagnosis was made using cytochemistry and immunological markers. One patient's cells marked as T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (T-ALL), the other as unclassified (null) ALL. These cases support the concept that PRV is a(More)
Few studies have explored the effects of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 PUFA) supplementation on immune modulation in murine models of mammary carcinogenesis. HER-2/neu and PyMT mice were randomized to 2 dietary interventions: AIN-93G-based diet with 1) 11% of diet (per gram weight) as corn oil (CO) or 2) 10% of diet as menhaden fish oil plus 1% of(More)
