The aim of the present study was to examine the interactions of fructose and fat on glucose regulation and lipid metabolism in CD-1 mice. Mice were assigned in five groups. The control group was provided with tap water and a gavage of vehicle; four experimental groups were treated with 150 g/l fructose solution (FS1), fat emulsion (FE), 150 g/l fructose(More)
OBJECTIVE Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) have recently been implicated in the pathogenesis of asthma through inhibiting T cell response. However, the issue of whether Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-derived MDSCs regulate the immune response in an asthma environment is currently unclear. We sought to characterize the pathogenic function of various(More)
One hundred fifteen consecutive patients were operated on for myocardial revascularization or valvular disease or both with continuous antegrade and retrograde aerobic warm (37 degrees C) blood cardioplegia. Mean cross-clamp time was 56.3 +/- 21 minutes (+/- standard deviation). Mean reperfusion time was 18.4 +/- 11.8 minutes (range, 5 to 81 minutes). Five(More)
One hundred eleven thymic tumors were intervened surgically, including 92 thymoma, 8 thymic carcinoid, and 10 thymic carcinoma. In this series 50.9% of the cases were complicated with various syndrome, 44.5% with myasthenia gravis (MG), more frequently in the epithelial cell type. Pure red cell aplasia often associated with the spindle-cell thymoma. Of the(More)
Between February and October 1991, 530 consecutive patients underwent myocardial revascularization or valvular surgery with warm continuous antegrade and retrograde cardioplegia (37 degrees C). Three hundred and thirty three patients had isolated myocardial revascularization, 159 valvular surgery alone and 25 had combined valvular and coronary bypass. The(More)
