The role of capsaicin-sensitive primary sensory neurons on the survival of experimental critical flaps was studied in the rat. Pretreatment with capsaicin, which depletes neuropeptide transmitter content from primary sensory neurons, caused a dramatic decrease in flap survival area compared to normal animals. In contrast, pretreatment with reserpine, which(More)
One of the key factors influencing how people react to and behave during a crisis is their digital or non-digital social network, and the information they receive through this network. Publicly available online social media sites make it possible for crisis management organizations to use some of these experiences as input for their decision-making. We(More)
The oedema formation after scalding injury to the rat paw was studied by means of the Evans blue exudation technique. An early and a delayed oedema formation were demonstrated after severe and light scalding, respectively. It was shown that the delayed, but not the early, form was reduced by capsaicin pretreatment, suggesting an involvement of(More)
The effect of some hydroxyethylated rutosides on the biosynthesis of prostaglandins was studied in the microsomal fraction of human skin homogenates. Microsomes were incubated with mono-0-hydroxyethyl-7-rutoside (mono-7-HR), di-0-hydroxyethyl-7',4-rutoside (di-HR), tri-0-hydroxyethyl-7,3',4'-rutoside (tri-7,3',4'-HR), tetra-0-hydroxyethyl-5,7,3',4'-rutoside(More)
In a 3-year prospective study, all infections presenting in the burns unit of a university hospital were registered in a specially designed database. Two-hundred and thirty adult patients were included. Eighty-three patients had in all 176 infections, giving an infection rate of 48 per 1000 patient days including both nosocomial and community-acquired(More)
Sensory reinnervation of a superficial skin wound in the rat was studied by labeling sensory axons with anterogradely transported wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase. Reinnervation starts after 3 days from the edge of the wound as well as from beneath the wound. About 2 weeks after the production of the wound, some hyperinnervation appears to be(More)
