Sympathetic modulation of radial artery compliance in congestive heart failure.
Animal studies have suggested that arterial compliance can be modulated by adrenergic influences. Whether this adrenergic modulation also occurs in humans is still a matter of debate. In the presentExpand

S100B protein concentrations in cord blood: correlations with gestational age in term and preterm deliveries.
S100B is an acidic calcium-binding protein of the EF-hand family concentrated in the nervous system, where it is located mainly in glial cells (1). Although many hypotheses have been formulated, itsExpand
