We hypothesized that the neuroprotection against cerebral hypoxic-ischemic damage observed with dexamethasone treatment in immature rats is related to a change in cerebral protein synthesis. Six-day-old Wistar rats were injected with either vehicle (10 ml/kg) or dexamethasone (0.1 mg/kg) 24 h prior to cerebral hypoxia-ischemia. Local cerebral protein(More)
A novel series of fully synthetic 8-azatetracyclines was prepared and evaluated for antibacterial activity. Compounds were identified that overcome both efflux (tet(K)) and ribosomal protection (tet(M)) tetracycline resistance mechanisms and are active against Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms. Two compounds were identified that exhibit comparable(More)
A randomized crossover study to assess the effect of an oat-rich diet on glycaemic control, plasma lipids and postprandial glycaemia, inflammation and oxidative stress in Type 2 diabetes Abstract Aims In the UK, lifestyle intervention is first-line management in Type 2 diabetes. It is unclear what type of diet is most efficacious for improving glycaemic(More)
TP-271 is a novel, fully synthetic fluorocycline antibiotic in clinical development for the treatment of respiratory infections caused by susceptible and multidrug-resistant pathogens. TP-271 was active in MIC assays against key community respiratory Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens, including Streptococcus pneumoniae (MIC90 = 0.03 µg/ml),(More)
