OBJECTIVE To analyse the relationships between 24 h blood pressure load (the percentage of systolic/diastolic blood pressures exceeding 140/90 mmHg while awake and 120/80 mmHg during sleep) and some indices of hypertensive target organ involvement, independently of the mean level of 24 h blood pressure. METHODS One hundred and thirty patients with(More)
PURPOSE A high level of minimal residual disease (MRD) after induction chemotherapy in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is an indicator of relative chemotherapy resistance and a risk factor for relapse. However, the significance of MRD in the second year of therapy is unclear. Moreover, it is unknown whether treatment intervention can alter(More)
In order to explore the relations between left ventricular mass (LVM) and the pulsatile (pulse pressure) and steady (mean pressure) components of the blood pressure (BP) curve, 304 young and middle-aged essential hypertensive patients were studied by means of 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring and echocardiography. In the overall study population, both the BP(More)
The effect of the histamine H2-receptor antagonist, cimetidine, on the cutaneous Arthus-like hypersensitivity to oxazolone elicited injecting subcutaneously oxazolone conjugated to egg-albumin (EA-OX) has been examined in the chicken. Cimetidine had opposite effects on the cutaneous reaction to oxazolone in relation to a different immunization schedule.(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of enoximone, an imidazolonic compound inhibiting cardiac phosphodiesterase III, during the postoperative period. The drug was administered prior to the usual stages of weaning the patient off extracorporeal circulation, to a group of 20 subjects who presented an ejection fraction of less than(More)
The residual behaviour of a sulphadiazine (SDZ) and trimethoprim (TMP) combination was studied in fourteen pigs and twenty-eight broilers. The drug combination was added in the amount of 700 mg kg-1 (SDZ) and 140 mg kg-1 (TMP) to pig and 300 mg kg-1 (SDZ) and 60 mg kg-1 (TMP) to broiler feed, respectively. The medicated feeds were supplied for 5 consecutive(More)
