Use of spent foundry sand and fly ash for the development of green self-consolidating concrete
In the United States alone, the foundry industry discards up to 10 million tons of sand each year, offering up a plentiful potential resource to replace sand in concrete products. However, becauseExpand

Usefulness of admission gamma-glutamyltransferase level for predicting new-onset heart failure in patients with acute coronary syndrome with left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
OBJECTIVES Our aim was to determine whether there is a relationship between admission gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and subsequent heart failure hospitalizations in patients with acute coronaryExpand

Effect of levosimendan in patients with severe systolic heart failure and worsening renal function.
BACKGROUND Levosimendan, a calcium sensitizer, increases the sensitivity of the heart to calcium, thus increasing myocardial contractility without a rise in intracellular calcium. It was recentlyExpand

Lymphocytopenia is associated with poor NYHA functional class in chronic heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction.
OBJECTIVE In heart failure (HF) patients, functional capacity has been demonstrated to be a marker of poor prognosis, independent of left ventricular ejection fraction (EF). Lymphocyte count isExpand

Association between oxidative stress index and post-CPR early mortality in cardiac arrest patients: A prospective observational study
Objective: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a series of lifesaving actions that improve the chance of survival following cardiac arrest (CA). Many clinical and laboratory parameters, such asExpand

Prognostic role of soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 on cardiovascular mortality in outpatients with heart failure
Objective: Soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 (sST2), a member of the interleukin 1 receptor family, is increased in mechanical stress conditions and is produced by cardiomyocytes and cardiacExpand

Plasma osmolality predicts mortality in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.
BACKGROUND Heart failure (HF) is a fatal disease. Plasma osmolality with individual impacts of sodium, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and glucose has not been studied prognostically in patients with HF.Expand

Association between multidrug resistance-1 C3435T gene polymorphism and right ventricular dysfunction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: cross-sectional study.
BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction may develop over the course of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is an important predictor of morbidity and mortality. Polymorphism of theExpand
