BACKGROUND Discrepancies concerning the effect of hypertension on capillaries and muscle fiber types in skeletal muscle have been reported. This study demonstrates the effects of hypertension produced by deoxicorticosterone acetate (DOCA) and salt load on the extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and soleus muscles of the rat. METHODS Hypertension was produced(More)
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) show occasionally thrombocytosis, common feature of myeloproliferative diseases (MPD), with the overlapping of both disorders. Classically, thrombocytosis has been associated with some MDS subtypes: refractory anaemia with ringed sideroblasts (RARS), 5q- syndrome and those MDS with 3q chromosome rearrangements. The recent WHO(More)
In a previous report, we observed an altered proportion of fiber types and a reduction of capillary per fiber ratio in extensor digitorus longus (EDL) and soleus (SOL) muscles of deoxicorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertensive rats when compared with controls. The aim of the present study was to ascertain various carbohydrate and lipid enzyme(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe the clinical and hematological characteristics of a 32-year-old woman with concomitant heterozygous pyruvate kinase (PK) and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiencies and severe hemolytic anemia during pregnancy. In 1964, Oski et al. [16] described a family in which a clinically healthy woman was heterozygous(More)
Systemic diseases affect skeletal muscle, and inflammation and oxidative stress are some of the involved mechanisms. There is scarce information about the effects of essential hypertension on skeletal muscle. The soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were studied compared to control Wistar Kyoto (WKY)(More)
This study was designed to test if skeletal muscle fiber composition could influence vascular response in hypertensive rats. Muscle vessels were observed by intravital microscopy in anesthetized rats and changes in diameter were measured after local administration of endothelium-dependent and -independent vasodilators. Vascular reactivity was compared in(More)
