The beneficial effects of Omega n - 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n - 3 PUFA) in situations of cognitive impairment may be associated with enhanced neuronal growth. Since neuronal growth is impaired in n - 3 PUFA deficiency, and enhanced by certain vitamins and trace elements, the effects of n - 3 PUFA, vitamin and mineral cell complex (VMC) and their(More)
This paper presents a validated model of calf compression with an external pressure cuff as used for deep vein thrombosis. Magnetic resonance (MR) images of calf geometry were used to generate subject-specific finite-element (FE) models of the calf cross section. Ultrasound images of deep vessel collapse obtained through a water-filled cuff were used to(More)
The effects of lubeluzole on sodium currents were examined in guinea-pig isolated cardiac myocytes by use of the whole-cell patch clamp technique. Lubeluzole (0.01-100 microM) reduced peak Na+ current (INa) obtained at a holding potential of -80 mV with an IC50 value of 9.5 (3.5-21.9) microM and a Hill coefficient of 1.1. These effects were rapid and(More)
