The potent vasoconstrictor endothelin-1 (ET-1) is also elevated in diabetes and following CABG; however, the effect of ET-1(More)

Neutralizing antibody titers were determined at term for 98 matched mothers' serum and neonatal cord blood pairs, to coxsackieviruses B2, B3, B4 and B5 and to echovirus 11. The reciprocal of the geometric mean titers of maternal sera were, respectively, 15.3, 18.1, 53.5, 14.1 and 11.4. The geometric mean titers of cord sera were statistically lower for(More)
