BACKGROUND Although recent studies have found that total plasma homocysteine (tHCY) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are both risk factors for cardiac disease, there have been few studies of plasma homocysteine levels in COPD patients. We tested the hypothesis that total plasma homocysteine (tHCY) would be elevated in patients diagnosed with(More)
Pregnancy-specific protein B (PSPB), is secreted from binucleate trophoblast of the bovine conceptus as early as day 15 of pregnancy. The objective of this experiment was to determine if PSPB induced uterine proteins. PSPB was purified from day 120 cotyledons using antibody-based affinity chromatography. Endometrium from day 14 nonpregnant cows (n = 3) was(More)
Secretion of progesterone by Day 14 bovine corpora lutea (CL) of the estrous cycle and Day 200 CL of pregnancy was evaluated in vitro to determine what regulates secretion of progesterone by CL of pregnancy. Weights of Day 200 CL of pregnancy (4356 +/- 223 g) were heavier when compared to Day 14 CL of the estrous cycle of Brahman cows (3643 +/- 128 g; p <(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the proportion of adult medical patients who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), using the Global initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease guidelines (GOLD), and its relation to vascular disease.
