A study was performed to explore the effects of supplemental intake of various marine oils known to be part of the Eskimo diet. Healthy men and women (134) were randomly selected to consume 15 mL/d of oil from blubber of seal, cod liver, seal/cod liver, blubber of Minke whale, or no oil for ten weeks. Total cholesterol was unchanged in the oil groups,(More)
In the present study we have investigated the effect of platelets and granulocytes on bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced tissue factor (TF) activity in monocytes. Experiments were performed on freshly isolated cells resuspended in heparinized plasma and recombined with platelet-poor or platelet-rich plasma. In a platelet-dependent reaction the(More)
Several components of blood, e.g. lipids, coagulation and fibrinolytic factors, are thought to be important risk factors in cardiovascular diseases. The aim of this study was to correlate these risk factors and the soluble adhesion proteins, soluble P-selection (sP-selectin) and soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule (sVCAM-1), in healthy men and women as(More)
Transforming activity released in sequential genetic order during the first synchronous cycle of DNA replication during outgrowth of spores of Bacillus subtilis 168 was investigated. A transformation assay was used consisting of outgrowing spores as DNA donors and multiply marked competent cells as recipients. DNA synthesis inhibitors known to stop DNA(More)
Congenital myopathies are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of muscle disorders characterized by congenital or early-onset hypotonia and muscle weakness, and specific pathological features on muscle biopsy. The phenotype ranges from foetal akinesia resulting in in utero or neonatal mortality, to milder disorders that are not life-limiting.(More)
The effect of supernatant from phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) stimulated human polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMN) on human factor VII was studied in vitro. The supernatant caused a rapid loss in factor VII coagulant activity by the action of human leukocyte elastase (HLE) and cathepsin G in the supernatant, as demonstrated by the use of specific(More)
