Endothelin-1 induces release of histamine and leukotriene C4 from mouse bone marrow-derived mast cells.
Whether specific binding sites for endothelin-1 and endothelin-3 exist in mouse bone marrow-derived mast cells (BMMC) and if these endothelins are capable of stimulating chemical mediator releaseExpand

Values of carcinoembryonic antigen, elastase 1, and carbohydrate antigen determinant in aspirated pancreatic cystic fluid in the diagnosis of cysts of the pancreas
The levels of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), elastase 1, and carbohydrate antigen determinant (CA 19‐9) in the pancreatic cystic fluid and the serum from five patients with cystadenocarcinoma of theExpand

Repeated antigen inhalation-induced reproducible early and late asthma in guinea pigs.
To develop a model of chronic experimental asthma in guinea pigs, the animal was forced to inhale the mist of a low dose of ovalbumin (OA) adsorbed on fine Al(OH)3 for sensitization once every 4Expand

Dimaprit, a histamine H2-agonist, inhibits anaphylactic histamine release from mast cells and the decreased release is restored by thioperamide (H3-antagonist), but not by cimetidine (H2-antagonist).
Whether anaphylactic histamine release from rat peritoneal mast cells is influenced by betahistine, a histamine H1-receptor agonist/H3-antagonist, and dimaprit, an H2-agonist, was examined. TreatmentExpand

Effect of fundusectomy on serum and antral gastrin levels in rats.
In adult male rats, fundusectomy decreased acid secretion but significantly increased total antral gastrin and both fasting and food-stimulated serum gastrin levels. The rise in fasting serum gastrinExpand

Significance of carcinoembryonic antigen levels and cytology of pure pancreatic juice in diagnosis of pancreatic cancer
The diagnostic accuracies of measurement of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and analysis of the cytologic characters of pure pancreatic juice were assessed in 16 control subjects, 20 patients withExpand

Endothelin-1, one of the most potent histamine releasers in mouse peritoneal mast cells.
Whether endothelin-1 or -3 is capable of inducing histamine release from the peritoneal mast cells of BALB/c mice was investigated in vitro and compared to the release induced by compound 48/80. InExpand

Value of serum alpha-fetoprotein and ferritin in the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma.
Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and ferritin in the serum were determined by radioimmunoassay and enzyme immunoassay, respectively, in 224 healthy subjects, 55 patients with benign hepatic disease and 44Expand

Carcinoembryonic antigen in gastric juice as an aid in diagnosis of early gastric cancer
The levels of carcinoembyronic antigen (CEA) in the serum and gastric juice of 58 patients with gastric cancer were determined by radioimmunoassay. The level of serum CEA was not a satisfactoryExpand
