Earlier studies in diabetic animal models or ex vivo from diabetics suggest a deficiency in prostacyclin (PGI2) production and an increase in an alternate arachidonic acid metabolite, 12-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (12-HETE), which stimulates angiogenesis, mitogenesis, and inhibits renin secretion. We studied the urinary excretion rate of 6-keto-PGF1 alpha(More)
We examined clinical outcomes in 110 consecutive patients with unstable angina who underwent multiple coronary stenting over a 32-mo period. The main outcome measures were death, stroke, myocardial infarction, bypass surgery, and repeat angioplasty. The angiographic success rate was 100%, and the procedural success rate was 96%. There were no in-hospital(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the immediate and intermediate term clinical outcome of multiple coronary stenting. DESIGN Consecutive patients were prospectively entered on a dedicated database. Follow up information was obtained from outpatient and telephone interviews with patients and family physicians. SETTING A tertiary referral centre. PATIENTS 140(More)
Multi-well assays based on the Boyden chamber have enabled highly parallel studies of chemotaxis-the directional migration of cells in response to molecular gradients-while direct-viewing approaches have allowed more detailed questions to be asked at low throughput. Boyden-based plates provide a count of cells that pass through a membrane, but no(More)
