BACKGROUND Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) regulates genes involved in renal disease progression, such as the chemokines monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and RANTES. NF-kappaB is activated in experimental models of renal injury, and in vitro studies also suggest that proteinuria and angiotensin II could be important NF-kappaB activators. It has(More)
Background. Nuclear factor-kB (NF-kB) regulates genes involved in renal disease progression, such as the chemokines monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and RANTES. NF-kB is activated in experimental models of renal injury, and in vitro studies also suggest that proteinuria and angiotensin II could be important NF-kB activators. It has been proposed(More)
The effect of calcium channel blockers (Ca-antagonists) on the potency and reversibility of muscle relaxants (MR) was investigated in the in vitro phrenic nerve-hemidiaphragm and in vivo sciatic nerve-tibialis anterior preparation of rats. To increase the relevance of the experimental findings to the clinical situation, the [Ca++] and [Mg++] in vitro were(More)
The management of a global activity that has individual tasks as its components is very difficult, because an unexpected interruption in any individual task can create extra costs or even disrupt the whole activity. To resolve this problem, this work presents the development of a decision-support tool using Bayesian networks (BN). Our research illustrates(More)
