The purpose of this review is to summarise the commonly used formulae for fluid resuscitation in major burns and to discuss the controversy surrounding the use of protein-based colloids as a component of these types of formulae. Fluid resuscitation in major burns is one of the most critical steps in managing this type of injury. In practice, a wide variety(More)
Phosphorylase ab was prepared in vitro by partial phosphorylation of rabbit skeletal muscle phosphorylase b and was isolated by DEAE-Sephacel chromatography. Its phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated subunits could not be distinguished by different affinity to substrates, activators or inhibitors, indicating their coordinated function. In the absence of(More)
BACKGROUND The use of suctioned fat grafts for correction of soft tissue defects is a widespread procedure in esthetic and reconstructive surgery. The main disadvantage of this simple and sensible procedure is the unpredictable absorption rate of the fat graft. A lot of research has been performed aiming for enhancement of the take of the fat grafts. (More)
We examined a clinical model of ex vivo transdifferentiation of primary adult hepatocytes to insulin-secreting cells for the treatment of type 1 diabetes. Isolated rat hepatocytes were transduced in primary culture with a human lentivirus containing pancreatic duodenal homeobox 1 (PDX1, now known as insulin promoter factor 1, homeodomain transcription(More)
Recently, lasers and light systems are used more for the treatment of vascular lesions due to their noninvasiveness, ease of use, and short recovery time. This side-by-side prospective study compares results, satisfaction, and complications after intense pulsed light (IPL) and Nd:Yag laser treatment of small vascular lesions. Twenty-five patients with(More)
Clinical guidelines usually need to be adapted to fit local practice before they can be actually used by clinicians. Reasons for adaptation include variations of institution setting such as type of practice and location, availability of resources, differences in patient populations, local policies, and practice patterns. When a guideline is implemented for(More)

Metabolic syndrome (MS) or insulin resistance syndrome is the result of multiple metabolic abnormalities associated with cardiovascular disease. Since 1988, when Reaven first described MS, many researches have been conducted in order to understand its pathophysiology, epidemiology, prognostic implications and therapeutic strategies. Numerous metabolic(More)
Fourteen 7-alkoxy-2,2-dimethychromenes were synthetized and studied in JH competition experiments: precocenes (Ps) PI and PII, and synthetic analogs (PAs) including (i) three with both antiallatal and P-like activities: 7-ethoxy-PII (7-EPII); 7-(prop-2-ynyloxy)-2,-2-dimethylchromene (PPI); and 6-methoxy-7-(prop-2-ynyloxy)-2,2-dimethylchromene (PPIII); (ii)(More)
There are very few studies in the English literature that evaluate the patient satisfaction after treatment using intense pulsed light (IPL) and there is no reported study comparing the results of the three major IPL applications: rejuvenation, hair removal, and treatment of small vascular lesions. This study was designed to compare results after IPL(More)
