It has been reported that soybean peptide fractions isolated from Korean fermented soybean paste exert angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity in vitro. In this study, further purification and identification of the most active fraction inhibiting ACE activity were performed, and its antihypertensive activity in vivo was confirmed.(More)
The gene (mcp) coding for the major capsid protein (MCP) of the Lactococcus lactis ssp. cremoris bacteriophage F4-1 has been cloned and its nucleotide sequence determined. The mcp gene was localized, by Western blotting with rabbit antiserum against intact bacteriophage, within a 3.3-kb HindIII-Spe I fragment and the sequence of the entire region(More)
In this study, we sought to elucidate whether phenylpropanolamine (PPA) in cold remedies (small and divided doses) increases the risk of hemorrhagic stroke (HS). PPA exposure significantly increased the risk, and the risk was much higher in women. In women, linear trends were also found in recency, duration, and dosage of PPA exposure. PPA contained in cold(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of administration of a single 12-mL dose of canine parvovirus (CPV)-immune plasma for treatment of CPV enteritis. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trial. ANIMALS 14 dogs with naturally occurring CPV enteritis. PROCEDURES Dogs were assigned to treatment groups on the basis of(More)
An elderly unconsciocus patient with anteroseptal myocardial infarction showing ventricular pseudo-bigeminy (artifact) due to sustained myoclonus is reported. The reason why the artifacts coincided with his cardiac contraction is not clearly understood. The artifact is completely eliminated following intravenous injection of succinylcholine chloride.
