Adrenomedullin is a novel peptide that elicits a long-lasting vasorelaxant activity. Recently, we found high concentrations of adrenomedullin in maternal and umbilical cord plasma and in amniotic fluid in full-term human pregnancy, indicating a role of this peptide during gestation. To investigate the possibility that adrenomedullin is involved in the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to describe the normal pattern of development and maturation of the foetal brain with respect to gestational age as assessed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to provide an overview of the possibilities of the technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS Foetal cerebral MRI was performed on 56 pregnant women between 19 and 37(More)
We investigated whether the levels of adrenomedullin, a novel peptide produced by several tissues, including the pituitary gland, change during the ovarian cycle. We studied 13 healthy women with regular menstrual cycles. Plasma samples were collected at 7, 14, 21 and 28 days of the ovarian cycle and assayed for adrenomedullin 1-52 using a specific RIA. LH,(More)
1 A portal for biomedicine The amount of information potentially available for the biomedical researcher has grown exponentially in recent years. Most of this information is available on-line, but efficient and exhaustive use of it is rendered problematic by the way in which it is organised. The researcher is often confused by the quantity of information(More)
