We observed that the chemotactic peptide N-formyl-L-methionyl-L-leucyl-L- phenylalanine (FMLP) induced pulmonary edema when polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) were added to isolated constant-flow buffer-perfused rabbit lungs. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that PMNs activated by FMLP induced lung injury by the modulation of reactive oxygen(More)
Using BALB/c nu/nu, BALB/c nu/nutOI I (BALB/c nu/nu mice raised by C3H/HeN foster mother), BALB/c thymus-engrafted BALB/c nul n«fC3H,BALB/c nu/+, and BALB/c n«/+fC3Hmice, we examined what kinds of cells are carriers of blood-borne mouse mammary tumor virus (B-MMTV). A radioimmunoassay and an immunoperoxidase assay re vealed the presence of MMTV-gp52(More)
The chemotactic peptide N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP) has been shown to constrict both bronchial and coronary vascular smooth muscle through the action of cyclooxygenase or lipoxygenase products. We observed that intravenous FMLP increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) in isolated buffer-perfused rabbit lungs. FMLP increased the PVR(More)
The efficacy of hydroxyethyl starch (HES) in limiting alveolar flooding after acute lung injury was investigated using ethchlorvynol (ECV)-induced low pressure pulmonary edema in dogs. Harvested autologous plasma (PL) (control, n = 8) or 6% HES (n = 8) was infused (25 ml/kg) along with packed cells to result in an isovolemic, normochromic preparation before(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the in vivo effects of different doses of 17β-estradiol (E2) and testosterone (T) on the levels of plasma and pituitary gonadotropin II (GTH II) in 2-year-old black porgy, Acanthopagrus schlegeli, during the spawning season. Male fish were distributed among 7 groups (n = 49), control, E2or T (with 3(More)
