Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) in the arterial wall has been proposed to enhance the retention of apoB-containing lipoproteins, an early event in atherosclerosis. As the neointima is considered the primary site of lipid accumulation in atherogenesis, the arterial expression and location of LPL was investigated in distinct experimental models of neointimal(More)
BACKGROUND Cutaneous sclerosing perineurioma is a recently characterized, uncommon tumor composed of perineurial cells, which exhibits immunoreactivity for epithelial membrane antigen (EMA). These lesions occur preferentially in children and young adults and usually develop as dermal or subcutaneous nodules in the hands or palms. METHODS We report two(More)
The contractile activity of the rat prostate was registered in vivo by means of a video recording system. An increase in tone was registered in control animals after electrical stimulations were applied to hypogastric ganglion. Similar result was obtained after norepinephrine or acetylcholine administration. Such responses suffered a progressive declination(More)
Arterial sialic acid (SA) has been shown to attenuate the binding of fibrinogen and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) to the vessel wall, presumably protecting against atherosclerosis. This study was aimed to assess the effect of changes in SA content in intimal thickening, an early step in the development of atherosclerosis. New Zealand white rabbits were(More)
