This article is a short review of newer findings concerning the physiological and biochemical bases of the heart's tolerance to ischemia. The following themes are discussed. I. Energy-pool, energy-demand, and efficiency of anaerobic metabolism, the essential determinants of reanimation time and the heart's tolerance to ischemia. II. Experimental results of(More)
Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) has emerged as a significant nosocomial pathogen in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU). We wished to test the hypothesis that the use of selective digestive tract decontamination (SDD) in the SICU affects the frequency of VRE isolation. A retrospective review of hospital records and the SICU database was(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the antiparasitic spot-on formulation containing imidacloprid 10%/moxidectin 1% (Advocate®, Bayer) in the treatment of natural feline infection with the lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus (Nematoda, Strongylida). The efficacy of Advocate® administered once was tested in(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the antiparasitic spot-on formulation containing emodepside 2.1 %/praziquantel 8.6% (Profender®, Bayer) in the treatment of natural feline infection with the lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus (Nematoda, Strongylida). Efficacy of Profender® given once at the licensed dose was(More)
In the present experiments it was tested whether omega-agatoxin-IVA, a peptide blocking P-type voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels, inhibits the evoked release of newly synthesized [3H]acetylcholine from the rat phrenic nerve. Release of [3H]acetylcholine was evoked by electrical stimulation of the isolated phrenic nerve (100 or 750 pulses at 5 Hz).(More)
