BACKGROUND Small bacterial RNAs (sRNAs) have been shown to participate in the regulation of gene expression and have been identified in numerous prokaryotic species. Some of them are involved in the regulation of virulence in pathogenic bacteria. So far, little is known about sRNAs in Bordetella, and only very few sRNAs have been identified in the genome of(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the ability of dobutamine and exercise stress to induce myocardial ischaemia and perfusion heterogeneity under routine clinical circumstances. DESIGN 86 active patients without previous myocardial infarction were studied by dobutamine and exercise stress protocols and coronary angiography. During both tests patients underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies showed that thallium scintigraphy and dobutamine echocardiography were accurate, noninvasive ways of predicting contractile recovery after revascularization in patients with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. However, the prognostic impact of such methods remains uncertain. METHODS AND RESULTS We prospectively studied 137(More)
