Carp erythrocytes were fractionated by angle-head centrifugation which yielded fractions with a linear increase in density. Haematological examinations revealed that the heavier red blood cells of carp had greater volumes (MCV), more haemoglobin (MCH) and higher haemoglobin concentrations (MCHC) than light ones. The same experiments with human red cell(More)
1. Carp, when subjected to air stress in vivo, developed a hypoxaemia associated with an acidosis due to elevation of PCO2 and arterial lactate content. Adrenaline and noradrenaline levels rose markedly, and the mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC in mmol Hb l-1 red blood cells) decreased, indicating swelling of the erythrocytes. 2. No effect(More)
The goal of this study was to test the hypothesis that stem cells, as a response to valve-specific extracellular matrix “niches” and mechanical stimuli, would differentiate into valvular interstitial cells (VICs). Porcine aortic root scaffolds were prepared by decellularization. After verifying that roots exhibited adequate hemodynamics in vitro, we seeded(More)
Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma is a rare hepatocellular tumor usually arising in noninfected and noncirrhotic livers. Only 2 cases accompanied by hyperammonemia due to intrahepatic shunting have been reported. A 23-year-old white woman presented with a 2-week history of nausea, vomiting, generalized weakness, and intermittent right upper quadrant(More)
