OBJECTIVE A potential role of growth arrest-specific gene 6 (Gas-6) in energy storage in adipose tissue was investigated in murine models of obesity. Gas-6 is a ligand for the Axl, C-Mer, and Sky family of tyrosine kinase receptors. METHODS AND RESULTS Whereas Gas-6, C-Mer, and Sky were expressed in mature murine adipocytes, the expression of Axl was(More)
To investigate a potential role of stromelysin-1 (MMP-3) in development of adipose tissue, 5 week old male MMP-3 deficient mice (MMP-3(-/-)) and wild-type (MMP-3(+/+)) controls were kept on a high fat diet (HFD) for 15 weeks. MMP-3(-/-) mice were hyperphagic and gained more weight than the MMP-3(+/+) mice. At the time of sacrifice, the body weight of the(More)
AIMS Contradicting reports have been published regarding the relation between a dobutamine-induced increase in either cardiac dyssynchrony or left-ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and the response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Using apical rocking (ApRock) as surrogate dyssynchrony parameter, we investigated the dobutamine stress(More)
The therapeutic efficacy of sulphachlorpyrazine and toltrazuril against experimentally induced Eimeria tenella infection was compared in battery and floor pen raised broiler chickens. In the battery studies, both drugs prevented coccidiosis-related mortality and decrease of weight gain to a similar degree, but toltrazuril was more effective in reducing(More)
BACKGROUND Cancer is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after heart transplantation. METHODS We studied 541 heart transplant patients from a single center over a period of 25 years, with a mean follow-up of 10.7 years. We determined incidence, type, risk factors, and prognosis for cancer after heart transplantation. RESULTS Cancer was diagnosed in(More)
BACKGROUND The obesity-related hormones leptin and adiponectin are independently and oppositely associated with insulin resistance, which is an important risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) and restenosis after coronary intervention. In this report, we set out to determine the role of the leptin-adiponectin ratio (LAR) in non-diabetic patients(More)
In this 3-year, open-label, multicenter study, 57 maintenance heart transplant recipients (>1 year after transplant) with renal insufficiency (eGFR 30-60 mL/min/1.73 m2) were randomized to start everolimus with CNI withdrawal (N = 29) or continue their current CNI-based immunosuppression (N = 28). The primary endpoint, change in measured glomerular(More)
Objectives There is conflicting evidence concerning the role of right ventricular (RV) systolic dysfunction in the long-term clinical outcome after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Therefore we aimed to assess evolution of RV systolic function during CRT, covariates associated with its improvement, and its impact on outcome. Methods and results All(More)
