Pentoxifylline (PTX) is a methylxanthine compound known to inhibit the production of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), which is an important inflammatory mediator. There is also recent evidence that PTX may influence other inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-1 (IL-1) and IL-6. Due to the therapeutic implications, the present study addressed(More)
Morphology, wood structure and cell wall composition of 35S-rolC transgenic hybrid aspen (P. tremula×tremuloides) were compared with non-transformed control trees. The transgenics are characterised by stunted growth, altered physiological parameters and light green leaves of reduced size. Histometric measurements revealed thinner fibre walls as compared to(More)
Wood formation and structure of 3-year-old 35S-rolC transgenic aspen (Populus tremula L. × tremuloides Michx.) were compared with the situation in non-transformed control aspen trees. The transgenics are characterized by reduced shoot growth and an earlier bud break. Their wood formation did not immediately follow bud break and leaf development but occurred(More)
A simple method for measuring circumduction of the thumb, by using a ratio of the range of motion to the length of the first metacarpal, is described. This method can be of value in assessing many aspects of thumb function, especially the improvement in function after opponensplasty. The improved ability to position the thumb in a useful location, both for(More)
BACKGROUND Extracorporeal photochemotherapy (EP) is used for the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS), pemphigus vulgaris, and rheumatoid arthritis. During this procedure, the oral administration of the photoactive drug 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) results in an unpredictable range of serum levels and in side(More)
Nach mechanischer Verletzung eines Baumes bis in den Holzkörper hinein wird die Wunde von den Seiten aus überwallt. Ziel der Untersuchungen war es, die Entwicklungsstufen der Überwallung am Wundrand bei Buche (Fagus sylvatica L.) und Eiche (Quercus robur L.) licht- und elektronenmikroskopisch darzustellen. Bereits nach etwa zehn Tagen war eine deutliche(More)
