OBJECTIVE Reperfusion injury of the myocardium is characterised by development of cardiomyocyte hypercontracture. Previous studies have shown that cGMP-mediated stimuli protect against reperfusion injury, but the cellular mechanism is still unknown. METHODS To simulate ischemia/reperfusion, adult rat cardiomyocytes were incubated anoxically (pH(o) 6.4)(More)
OBJECTIVE Experimental and clinical studies have shown that administration of insulin during reperfusion is cardioprotective, but the underlying mechanisms are still unknown. In this study, we investigated in isolated rat cardiomyocytes subjected to hypoxia and reoxygenation whether administration of insulin during reoxygenation reduces(More)
Early onset infection (EOI) in preterm infants <32 weeks gestational age (GA) is associated with a high mortality rate and the development of severe acute and long-term complications. The pathophysiology of EOI is not fully understood and clinical and laboratory signs of early onset infections in this patient cohort are often not conclusive. Thus, the aim(More)
