AIMS The pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for increased cardiovascular mortality in diabetic autonomic neuropathy (AN) are largely unknown. The aim was to determine the relative role of AN in the pathogenesis of cardiac diastolic dysfunction and left ventricular hypertrophy in Type 1 diabetes. METHODS Ten Type 1 diabetic patients with AN, defined(More)
A histochemical study was performed to determine the cellular localization of selenium in the adrenals from rats exposed to sodium selenite, as these organs were known to obtain the highest concentration in the rats. Male rats were treated either with 1-15 mg of sodium selenite for 14 days to 6 months in the drinking water, or with 1-20 mg as(More)
BACKGROUND Therapeutic hypothermia for comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) has improved survival and neurologic outcome. This study focused on return to work 1 year after therapeutic hypothermia. METHODS From June 2004 to June 2009, patients between 18 and 65 years of age with OHCA, who were treated with hypothermia from two(More)
Accumulations of mercury have been demonstrated in adrenal glands by light and electron microscopy with a highly sensitive histochemical technique. Rats were exposed to methyl mercury in drinking water (20 mg/l) for 7-180 days, or were given intraperitoneal injections of methyl mercury (daily dose 100 or 200 micrograms). The amount and location of the(More)
