Neutrophils accumulate and contribute to skeletal muscle dysfunction after ischemia-reperfusion.
TLDR
It is found that rats pretreated with vinblastine 4 days before study had decreased numbers of blood neutrophils and increased gastrocnemius muscle function after ischemia and reperfusion compared with untreated rats or rats treated 4 Days before study with saline.
Xanthine oxidase-derived H2O2 contributes to reperfusion injury of ischemic skeletal muscle.
TLDR
It was found that after ischemia and then reperfusion, rat gastrocnemius muscles had decreased contractile function following direct stimulation, and xanthine oxidase (XO)-derived hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) contributes to ischemic skeletal muscle injury during reperfusions.
Imaging of the umbilicus and periumbilical region.
TLDR
Clinical manifestations of umbilical disorders are usually nonspecific; use of cross-sectional imaging can help identify most of these entities because of their typical locations and distributions in continuity with the urinary bladder and the umbilicus and guide therapy.
Loss of uteroglobin expression in prostate cancer: relationship to advancing grade.
TLDR
The immunohistochemical analyses of fresh frozen prostate tissues from surgical specimens taken from 50 patients suggest that the loss of UG expression may be an indicator of prostate cancer progression and possibly a component of the molecular natural history of prostatecancer, which may have prognostic value.
Iron overload in urban Africans in the 1990s
TLDR
Iron overload is readily identified among urban Africans and is associated with hepatic damage and iron loading of several tissues, which is unrelated to the genetic mutation found in hereditary haemochromatosis.
