The effect of acute ozone exposure on the function of efferent parasympathetic nerves, M3 muscarinic receptors on airway smooth muscle, and inhibitory M2 muscarinic receptors on the parasympathetic nerves was studied. Immediately after exposure to 2.0 ppm ozone for 4 h, guinea pigs became hyperresponsive to electrical stimulation of the vagus nerves. The(More)
Raf kinase inhibitor protein (RKIP) is an inhibitor of Raf-mediated activation of mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase (MEK)-MAP kinase and is considered as an important tumor suppressor. RKIP-expression was investigated retrospectively in 321 esophageal cancers [179 adenocarcinomas (ACs), 142 squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs)]. RKIP-expression was further(More)
Recent data provide evidence for an important role of thrombocytes in lymphangiogenesis within human malignant disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of thrombocytes in lymphangiogenesis in human esophageal cancer. Perioperative peripheral blood platelet counts (PBPC) were evaluated retrospectively in 320 patients with esophageal cancer,(More)
