PURPOSE This prospective study was conducted to evaluate the biologic effects of microbubble destruction with pulse-inversion harmonic imaging on rabbit liver parenchyma. METHODS The livers of 6 albino rabbits were examined sonographically by a single investigator. Three rabbits underwent contrast-enhanced sonography, with scanning starting 5 seconds(More)
Studies concerning the development of the magnocellular system are scarce and discordant in literature. We carried out an immunohistochemical study on supraotic and paraventricular hypothalamic nuclei using antivasopressin and antioxytocin antibodies in developing rats between the 15th day of intrauterine life and the 6th day of postnatal life. In addition,(More)
In previous research, we studied both the oxytocin and vasopressin ontogeny in the hypothalamic supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei, and the ANP-ontogeny in the hypothalamic supraoptic nucleus. In this paper we evaluate the ANP-ontogeny in the rat hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus; infact the suprachiasmatic nucleus it is known to synthesize(More)
Atrial natriuretic peptide, oxytocin and vasopressin are three well known and widely studied molecules since many years. They have been fully characterised from a genetic and biomolecular point of view and a number of receptor-dependent functions have been recognised for them. Nevertheless, in the last years our group has conducted morphologic studies,(More)
Many studies have demonstrated the involvement of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and vasopressin (VP) in the homeostasis of body fluids, but few studies have regarded the hypothalamic magnocellular neurosecretory system during physical exercises. The aim of the present immunohistochemical work is to study the activity of ANP and VP secreting neurons of(More)
Aim of the present study was to evaluate by transmission electron microscope (TEM) modifications in rabbit kidney-parenchyma after submission to ultrasound contrast agent (UCA) with Pulse Inversion Harmonic Imaging (PIHI). Seven inbred male albino rabbits were divided into three groups: 1) control group (n = 1 animal); 2) sonicated group (n = 3 animals); 3)(More)
