Plasma thrombopoietin concentrations in thrombocytopenic and non‐thrombocytopenic patients in a neonatal intensive care unit
Thrombocytopenia is a frequent occurrence in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), but the role of thrombopoietin (Tpo) in the pathophysiology is unknown. We obtained serial plasma TpoExpand

24-Hour ambulatory blood pressure control with triple-therapy amlodipine, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide in patients with moderate to severe hypertension
To determine the effectiveness and safety of once-daily combination therapy with amlodipine, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide for reducing ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) in patients with moderateExpand

Effects of interleukin-8 on the developing human intestine.
The human fetal/neonatal gastrointestinal tract is exposed to biologically significant concentrations of interleukin (IL)-8 swallowed with amniotic fluid and human milk. We hypothesized that IL-8 hasExpand

Transplacental passage of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor in women with an imminent preterm delivery.
OBJECTIVE We attempted to determine, in a pilot study, whether recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, administered to women with an imminent delivery at < or = 30 weeks' estimatedExpand

Thrombopoietin (Tpo) in the fetus and neonate: Tpo concentrations in preterm and term neonates, and organ distribution of Tpo and its receptor (c-mpl) during human fetal development.
Little is known about thrombopoietin (Tpo) production in human fetuses and neonates. As a step toward determining whether Tpo is relevant to platelet production in the fetus and neonate, weExpand

Interleukin-8/CXCL8 Forms an Autocrine Loop in Fetal Intestinal Mucosa
IL-8/CXC ligand (CXCL) 8 is ingested in high concentrations by the human fetus/neonate with amniotic fluid and human milk, and is also produced constitutively by intestinal epithelial cells (IEC). WeExpand

Losartan versus valsartan in the treatment of patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension: data from a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, 12-week trial.
BACKGROUND Losartan, the first of the angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) to be introduced, has been studied extensively in comparison with other classes of antihypertensive agents. Less researchExpand
