AIMS To evaluate the relationship between patterns of rosiglitazone use and cardiovascular (CV) outcomes in the Veterans Affairs Diabetes Trial (VADT). METHODS Time-dependent survival analyses, case-control and 1 : 1 propensity matching approaches were used to examine the relationship between patterns of rosiglitazone use and CV outcomes in the VADT, a(More)
Previous works from our laboratory and others have shown that there is a PRL-like immunoreactive protein with immunological, chromatographic, and biological characteristics identical to those of pituitary PRL, and this is widely distributed in the rat central nervous system. Since pituitary PRL is important in controlling hypothalamic LHRH release, we have(More)
Portable acquisition of biopotential signals requires the design of compact, energy efficient circuits and systems. Such systems typically include analog-to-digital converter for digitizing signals from AFE and feeding it to DBE. An Ultra low power ADC is designed in this work to be integrated within scalable EEG SoC. The full system can capture EEG signals(More)
The effect of exposure to ethanol on hypothalamic LH-releasing hormone (LHRH) release in vivo was investigated in rats both acutely (i.p. injection) and after 3 days of administration, utilizing a permanent gastric cannula. In both designs, the animals were castrated before being given ethanol and, in both experiments, ethanol successfully lowered the(More)
Alphaxalone is considered the anaesthetic of choice in neuroendocrine reproductive studies in female rats, since it appears to have little, if any, effect on release of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone. There has been less study of the effects of this anaesthetic on the male reproductive neuroendocrine axis, however. Accordingly, the time-dependent effects(More)
