We questioned whether glucocorticoids alter the known potent effect of serum to increase glucose transport and GLUT-1 expression in cultured L6 myotubes. Myotubes were exposed to serum-free medium for 24h in the presence or absence of 300 nM dexamethasone and subsequently treated for 8h with 10% serum or serum free medium in the continued presence or(More)
We compared the expression and cell-type localization of GLUT-1 mRNA and protein between cardiac and skeletal muscle of normal rats. Also, since we recently showed that cardiac GLUT-1 is upregulated in rats exposed to hypobaric hypoxia, we examined the cellular localization of GLUT-1 in cardiac tissue of normal and hypoxic rats. Confocal light microscopy(More)
Introduction. Isolated torsion of the Fallopian tube is an uncommon cause of acute lower abdominal pain and can occur in women of all age groups. Cholecystitis is a frequent cause of upper abdominal pain. We present an unusual case with the presence of these two distinct pathological entities occurring concurrently in the same patient, causing(More)
OBJECTIVES The mortality of patients with Clostridium difficile-associated disease (CDAD) requiring surgery continues to be very high. Loop ileostomy (LI) was introduced as an alternative procedure to total colectomy (TC) for CDAD by a single-center study. To date, no reproducible results have been published. The objective of this study was to compare these(More)
BACKGROUND Our group has previously published a retrospective review defining variables predictive of transmural bowel ischemia in the setting of pneumatosis intestinalis (PI). We hypothesize this prospective study will confirm the findings of the retrospective review, enhancing legitimacy to the predictive factors for pathologic PI previously highlighted.(More)
