OBJECTIVES Recent work has shown that human bone marrow contains mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). However, little is known about their presence in peripheral blood. Since these cells are potentially responsible for tissue repair after injury, their number should be increased during these situations. To demonstrate their number during these situations, we(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine whether human neutrophils express an endothelial-type nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), and to study the effect of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) on its expression. BACKGROUND Several studies have demonstrated the presence of a constitutively expressed nitric oxide svnthase (NOS) in neutrophils.(More)
Multiple factors are involved in thrombus formation and require complex and highly therapeutic strategies. Platelet activation plays a critical role in the genesis of acute coronary syndromes involving not only platelets but also endothelial cells, leucocytes and erythrocytes. Angiotensin II (Ang II) is a vasoconstrictor that could participate in the(More)
A recent study has shown that losartan, an AT(1)-receptor antagonist, interacts with thromboxane A(2) (TxA(2))/prostaglandin H(2) (PGH(2)) receptors in human platelets. The aim of the present study was to analyse the ability of different angiotensin II (Ang II) AT(1)-receptor antagonists to inhibit TxA(2)-dependent human platelet activation. Platelets were(More)
The central nervous system of adult teleost fish is peculiar because of the following features: (1) the persistence of radial glial cells, (2) an important neurogenic activity and (3) a high aromatase expression by radial cells. In this study, the proliferative zones of the forebrain were described using bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) treatment in the brain of(More)
A recent study has shown that losartan, an AT-1-receptor antagonist, interacts with thromboxane A2 (TxA2)/prostaglandin H2 (PGH2) receptors in human platelets. The aim of this study was to analyze the ability of different angiotensin II (Ang II) AT-1-receptor antagonists to inhibit TxA2-dependent human platelet activation. Platelets were obtained from(More)
BACKGROUND The thrombotic process is a multicellular phenomenon in which not only platelets but also neutrophils are involved. Recent in vitro studies performed in our laboratory have demonstrated that triflusal, a 4-trifluoromethyl derivative of salicylate, reduced platelet aggregation not only by inhibiting thromboxane A2 production but also by(More)
In vitro studies have suggested that losartan interacts with the thromboxane (TxA2)/ prostaglandin H2 (PGH2) receptor in human platelets, reducing TxA2-dependent platelet activation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonists in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP). The level of(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Previous studies have demonstrated that losartan, an AT-1 receptor antagonist of angiotensin II (Ang II) could block the receptor of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) in the vascular wall. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of losartan on human platelet activation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Platelets were obtained from 15(More)
