Tobacco smoking remains the leading cause of preventable death worldwide and current smoking cessation medications have limited efficacy. Thus, there is a clear need for translational research focused on identifying novel pharmacotherapies for nicotine addiction. Our previous studies demonstrated that acute administration of an acetylcholinesterase(More)
In canine heart-lung preparations the relation between dP/Dt max and end-diastolic pressure exhibits the steepest slope shortly after isolation of the heart. When the heart is deteriorating, the slopes of the preload dependence of right and left ventricular dP/dt max are progressively reduced, but increase again after application of calcium. The preload(More)
In 16 2–3 weeks old puppies standardized hemorrhagic shock was produced. Puppies—in opposite to adult dogs—are capable to draw from intra- and extracellular space large quantities of fluid after blood loss. As fast as fluid is mobilized, a severe decompensation of acid-base balance develops. Parallels to findings in human babies and therapeutical(More)
36 patients from 19 families with erythropoietic protoporphyria were treated for about 5 years during the summer months with beta-carotene alone or beta-carotene plus canthaxanthin in daily doses of 50-200 mg. The effect of the treatment was evaluated clinically on the basis of information provided by the patients regarding the period of time they could(More)
In a double-blind within-patient clinical trial in psoriasis, budesonide 0.025% ointment has been shown to be at least as efficient as betamethasone-17-valerate 0.1% ointment. A lower concentration of budesonide ointment, 0.01%, was used for 4 weeks of maintenance treatment. This concentration controlled residual symptoms well in a majority of the patients,(More)
One percent metronidazole in an emollient cream base was compared with 250 mg oral tetracycline taken twice daily for the treatment of seventy-five patients with rosacea. After eight weeks of treatment there was no statistically significant difference between the results of the two treatments. Tetracycline did have a more rapid onset of effect on papules(More)
Eighty-one patients with atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis received a 1-week treatment with 0.1% betamethasone alone on one side and 0.1% betamethasone plus 2% fusidic acid on the other side. Clinically, the combination was marginally superior and in patient preference a significant difference in favour of the combination was recorded.(More)
