The genotoxic and carcinogenic potential of FA has been documented in mammalian cells and in rodents. A recent evaluation by the E.U. Scientific Committee for Occupational Exposure Limits(More)
The slope of phase 3 and three noninvasively determined dead space estimates derived from the expiratory carbon dioxide tension (PCO2) versus volume curve, including the Bohr dead space (VD,Bohr), the Fowler dead space (VD,Fowler) and pre-interface expirate (PIE), were investigated in 28 healthy control subjects, 12 asthma and 29 emphysema patients (20(More)
Concentrations of total lactate dehydrogenase (LDH; EC 1.1.1.27) and LDH isoenzyme patterns were studied in serum of 19 patients with multiple myeloma and in 19 healthy controls. Patients were divided into three groups (pretreatment, nonresponders, and responders to treatment), based on their clinical status at the time of blood sampling for LDH. The LDH(More)
UNLABELLED Our aim was to ascertain the relationship between the degree of 99mTc-MIBI uptake and the level of p-glycoprotein (Pgp) expression determined by flow cytometry and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) techniques in patients with hematologic malignancy. METHODS A total of 21 samples (19 patients) were evaluated. Two patients(More)
