OBJECTIVES We compared the expelled air dispersion distances during coughing from a human patient simulator (HPS) lying at 45° with and without wearing a surgical mask or N95 mask in a negative pressure isolation room. METHODS Airflow was marked with intrapulmonary smoke. Coughing bouts were generated by short bursts of oxygen flow at 650, 320, and(More)
Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) plays an important role in stimulating insulin release in the pancreas as well as inhibiting gastric acid secretion in the stomach. GIP has been found in specific endocrine cells located in the mucosal layer of the small intestine and in the submandibular salivary gland. In this study, the tissue-specific(More)
Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) is a forty-two amino acid hormone that stimulates the secretion of insulin from the pancreatic B-cells in the presence of elevated glucose concentrations. The human GIP gene with the human A alpha-fibrinopeptide sequence was synthesized and linked to the Staphylococcus aureus protein A gene in the vector(More)
