 Rat models of cardiac hypertrophy are characterised by a shift in left ventricular myosin isoform from V1 (adult) to V3 (foetal), the latter being associated with a slowing of the acto-myosin ATPase rate. The aim of this study was to examine hypertrophy effects on relaxation by investigating a chemically skinned cardiac preparation from the SHR, where all(More)
Immunohistochemical staining was performed on gynecologic tract squamous intraepithelial lesions using a novel phosphorylation-specific monoclonal antibody (designated 12D11) that detects histone H1 when phosphorylated at a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK)-responsive epitope. Findings were compared to immunostaining by MIB-1, an extensively studied antibody(More)
Cushing's syndrome associated with macronodular adrenal hyperplasia (MAH) may present with high-dose dexamethasone (dex) nonsuppressible hypercortisolemia. This has been interpreted as suggesting a primary adrenal disorder, leading to recommendations for curative adrenalectomy in these cases. The present case of MAH demonstrates high urinary and serum(More)
Overwhelming postsplenectomy infection (OPSI) due to group B streptococcus developed in an insulin-dependent diabetic patient. The illness began with nonspecific symptoms, followed rapidly by hypotension and disseminated intravascular coagulation. The early institution of appropriate antibiotics, fluid replacement and pressor agents resulted in a favorable(More)
