BACKGROUND The PROGRESS Registry (Promoting Global Research Excellence in Severe Sepsis) was designed to provide comparative data reflecting everyday clinical practice, thereby allowing participating institutions to explore and benchmark medical interventions in severe sepsis. MATERIALS AND METHODS PROGRESS was an international, noninterventional,(More)
The intrinsic activity of the potent dopamine (DA) agonist 4-propyl-9-hydroxynaphthoxazine [(+)-PHNO] was examined in receptor binding assays for the following receptors: DA, alpha-1 and alpha-2 adrenergic, serotonin-1 and -2, neuroleptic, beta adrenergic, anxiolytic, adenosine A-1, gamma-aminobutyric acid, muscarinic and opiate. (+)-PHNO exhibited strong(More)
The (+)-enantiomer of 1,2,3,4a,5,6-hexahydro-9-hydroxy-4-n-propyl-4H-naphth[1,2-b][ 1,4]-oxazine [(+)-PHNO] is demonstrated to be a potent and direct dopamine (DA) agonist in several in vivo and in vitro test procedures. In vitro (+)-PHNO inhibited binding of [3H]apomorphine (IC50 = 23 nM) or [3H]spiperone (IC50 = 55 nM) to rat striatal membranes. Because(More)
A series of tricyclic oxazines, namely, the 4-substituted 2H-naphth[1,2-b]-1,4-oxazines, have been synthesized and assayed for dopamine agonist activity. One of the members of this series, compound (+)VII-15, was found to be a remarkably potent agonist in vivo when tested in the standard 6-hydroxydopamine lesioned rat assay. The absolute configuration of(More)
The changes in core temperature (Tc) evoked by morphine in the Sprague-Dawley rate were altered by restraining the rat. The Tc of the free-moving rat rose after the IP (5, 15, 30, 60 mg/kg) or intracerebral injections (10, 20, 50 micrograms) of morphine. In the restrained rate, however, identical doses of morphine evoked either a hyperthermia of lesser(More)
The impact of improved irrigation and nutrient practices on ground water quality was assessed at the Nebraska Management System Evaluation Area using ground water quality data collected from 16 depths at 31 strategically located multilevel samplers three times annually from 1991 to 1996. The site was sectioned into four 13.4-ha management fields: (i) a(More)
