UNLABELLED Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a potent vasoconstrictor and mitogenic peptide produced and secreted by endothelial cells, which can play a potential role in the development of atherosclerosis and in the pathophysiology of extreme vasoconstriction of various diseases. METHODS To assess plasma endothelin-1 (ET-1) concentrations in patients with(More)

A surgical exploration of the orbit was performed and retained nictitating membrane glandular and conjunctival tissues were removed. Eleven days later, the cat(More)
Plasma concentrations of dexmedetomidine (D = 0.1 mg/kg), midazolam (M = 2 mg/kg), and butorphanol (B = 0.4 mg/kg) were analyzed by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) after their simultaneous (DMB) transnasal (TN) administration to healthy rabbits. Time-dependent changes in sedation and antinociception were evaluated by measuring a sedation(More)
Materials and methods: An equine anesthesia machine (Tafonius, Vetronic Services Ltd., UK) was modified by including a T-connector in the valve block to introduce xenon, so that the xenon was pushed into the machine cylinder by the expired gases. A xenon analyzer was connected to the expiratory limb of the patient circuit. The operation of the machine was(More)
