We have previously shown that hypertonic stress (HS) can suppress chemoattractant-induced neutrophil responses via cyclic adenosine monophosphate and enhance these responses through p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activation. The underlying mechanisms are unknown. Here, we report that HS dose-dependently releases adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP)(More)
Inflammation and immunosuppression can cause acute respiratory distress syndrome, multiple organ failure, and sepsis, all of which are lethal posttraumatic complications in trauma patients. Prevention of the inflammation and immunosuppression has been a main focus of trauma researcher for many years. Recently, hypertonic resuscitation has attracted(More)
Lepidium sativum Linn. has been used in traditional and folklore medicine for the treatment of bronchial asthma, diabetes, local and rheumatic pain. The present study deals with the investigation of the neurobehavioral effects of the total alkaloid from seeds of Lepidium sativum [LSAF].The effect of LSAF on general pharmacology, thiopental induced hypnosis,(More)
Inhomogeneous boson systems, such as the dilute gases of integral spin atoms in low-temperature magnetic traps, are believed to be well described by the Gross–Pitaevskii equation (GPE). GPE is a nonlinear Schrödinger equation which describes the order parameter of such systems at the mean field level. In the present work, we describe a Fortran 90 computer(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the anti-ulcer activity of buffered pantoprazole tablet against plain pantoprazole in pyloric ligated rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS In vivo pyloric ligated ulcerogenesis model was used to assess the effect of buffered pantoprazole on the volume of the gastric content, pH, total and free acidity, and ulcerogenic lesion. Pantoprazole(More)
In this paper, we report theoretical calculations of the photoinduced absorption (PA) spectrum of naphthalene and anthracene, with the aim of understanding those excited states, which are invisible in the linear optical absorption. The excited state absorption spectra are computed from the 1B(2u)(+) and the 1B(3u)(+) states and a detailed analysis of the(More)
In this work, we report electronic structure calculations aimed at computing the linear optical absorption spectrum and static dipole polarizablity of a newly proposed boron-based planar aromatic compound borozene (B12H6). For the purpose, we use the semiempirical INDO model Hamiltonian, accompanied by large-scale correlation calculations using the(More)
An ab initio Hartree-Fock approach aimed at directly obtaining the localized orthogonal orbitals (Wannier functions) of a crystalline insulator is described in detail. The method is used to perform all-electron calculations on the ground states of crystalline lithium fluoride and lithium chloride, without the use of any pseudo or model potentials.(More)
Correlated ab initio electronic structure calculations are reported for the polymers lithium hydride chain [LiH]∞ and beryllium hydride [Be2H4]∞. First, employing a Wannier-function-based approach, the systems are studied at the Hartree-Fock level, by considering chains, simulating the infinite polymers. Subsequently, for the model system [LiH]∞, the(More)
A set of weakly interacting spin-1 2 Fermions, confined by a harmonic oscillator potential, and interacting with each other via a contact potential, is a model system which closely represents the physics of a dilute gas of two-component fermionic atoms confined in a magneto-optic trap. In the present work, our aim is to present a Fortran 90 computer program(More)
