OBJECTIVE Captopril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, is known to modulate ischemia-reperfusion injury in the isolated hearts. This study was designed to examine the involvement of anti-free radical mechanisms in this protection. METHODS Isolated perfused rat hearts were subjected to 60 mins of global ischemia and 30 mins of reperfusion(More)
In two patients with acute non-lymphocytic leukemia, leukemic cell as well as plasma concentrations of Daunorubicin (D) and Daunorubicinol (DOH) were studied after administration of D as free drug or as a complex with DNA. The peak plasma concentration of D was slightly higher after infusion of the D-DNA complex than after free drug while the intracellular(More)
In groups of obese men and women with an abdominal type of fat distribution, we measured fat cell size, lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity and lipolysis stimulated by norepinephrine (NE) or isoproterenol (ISO) or inhibited by insulin, in subcutaneous abdominal and retroperitoneal (nonportal), as well as in omental and mesenteric (portal) adipose tissues.(More)
UNLABELLED A retrospective analysis has been carried out to determine the diagnostic accuracy of PET of the heart with 82Rb at a community hospital based center. METHODS Utilization statistics were derived from a total of 1460 patients scanned for the first 36 mo of the center's operation. Diagnostic accuracy for detection of coronary artery disease (CAD)(More)
A retrospective analysis has been carried out to determine utilization and diagnostic accuracy of positron emission tomography of the heart with rubidium-82 at a nonhospital-based center. Utilization statistics were derived for the first 27 months of operation of the center from a total of 1,670 patients scanned. Diagnostic accuracy for detection of(More)
Focal neurologic signs developed in a 75-year-old woman who had presented with encephalitis. A diagnosis of western equine encephalitis was made from serologic findings. Although she was improving clinically the patient died from acute dissection of an aortic aneurysm 11 days after admission to hospital. The pathological findings--perivascular infiltrates(More)
Local low-dose (200 rads) gamma-irradiation to both kidneys impaired the excretion of 3H-labeled tumor products and reduced the survival time of mice carrying carcinomas in the ascites form. Daily i.p. injections of cell-free ascites fluid into tumor-free mice for 3 weeks resulted in the death of 25 of 180 irradiated animals, with no deaths among 180(More)
