Metabolic syndrome is associated with reduced endothelial vasodilator function. It is also associated with the induction of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2), which produces vasoactive prostanoids. The frequency of metabolic syndrome increases with age and aging per se is a risk factor associated with reduced endothelium-mediated relaxation. Nevertheless, the(More)
We previously reported that forearm vasodilation to a delivered all-at-once over 5 min or a 1-min repeated monopolar anodal 0.10-mA current application is aspirin sensitive and that a single high-dose aspirin exerts a long-lived effect in the former case. We hypothesized that 1) in the latter case, the effect of aspirin would also be long lived and 2) the(More)
Circadian variations of alanine aminopeptidase (EC, gamma-glutamyltransferase (EC, and N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase (EC in urine were studied in 10 healthy children, ages six to 15 years. Urine specimens were collected during 24 h, grouped into four time intervals. Enzymes were measured spectrophotometrically, with automation.(More)
