Effects of leukotrienes D4 and E4 (LTD4 and LTE4) on electrolyte transport were examined, employing stripped segments of rat and rabbit ileum mounted in Ussing chambers. Addition of LTD4 or LTE4 to the serosal but not the mucosal bathing solution elicited a transient increase in short-circuit current (Isc) with maximal responses seen at 10(-5) M and 10(-8)(More)
To determine the frequency and significance of cytomegalovirus (CMV) viremia and viruria in HIV-positive subjects with low CD4+ lymphocyte counts but with no clinical indications for culture, we studied 100 consecutive clinically stable subjects with CD4+ cells < or = 100/microliters of blood who agreed to culture of blood and urine. Serum was tested for(More)
The corneally recorded rod photocurrent component (photoresponse) underlying the a-wave feature of the electroretinogram was analyzed. The results set empiric limits on critical photoresponse variables. Measurements were obtained from four normal adult subjects on a-wave amplitude, a-wave velocity, b-wave amplitude, b-wave implicit time and b-wave height(More)
The ability of electroretinogram (ERG) b-wave implicit time and b/a wave ratio to predict iris neovascular response was analyzed as a function of stimulus intensity over a 3.6 log unit intensity range in 39 patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Predictive power for CRVO patients was evaluated using ROC area at intensities of 1.23, 1.83, 2.43,(More)
The authors report electroretinogram (ERG) data from the initial clinic visit of 39 patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). No patient had signs of neovascular complications or had received treatment at the time of the ERG examination. Area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was used to compare effectiveness of the 4 ERG(More)
