Path openings are morphological operators that are used to preserve long, thin, and curved structures in images. They have the ability to adapt to local image structures, which allows them to detect lines that are not perfectly straight. They are applicable in extracting cracks, roads, and more. Although path openings are very efficient to implement for(More)
The influence of an increasing protein supply in combination with soybean oil upon the IGF-I concentration in the serum in correlation with growth was measured on 8 x 10 male Wistar rats. With a casein content of 0% in the food, the IGF-I level was 0.13 +/- 0.02 rU/ml. An IGF-I plateau of 0.74 +/- 0.07 rU/ml was reached at some 15% casein. The additional(More)
In cases of systemic inflammatory response syndrome, sepsis, and septic shock, the activity of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase D (GPI-PLD) in serum amounts to 20 to 25% of the activity found in a healthy control group. The activity of serum GPI-PLD is positively correlated with inflammatory markers and counts of monocytes and stab cells(More)
Twenty women after menopause were submitted to substitution treatment with a biphasic hormone combination (Cyclacur¿). Nine of these had undergone hysterectomy + ovarectomy. Through 11 days each of the women was administered a daily dose of 2 mg estradiol-valerianate as estrogen. Subsequently, for another 10 days each was given the identical dose of(More)
Oral compared to parenteral estrogen administration is characterized by reduced systemic but prominent hepatic estrogenic effects on lipids, hemostatic factors, GH-/IGF I axis, angiotensinogen. In order to avoid such adverse metabolic effects of oral treatment, estradiol (E2) prodrugs (EP) were designed which bypass the liver tissue as inactive molecules.(More)
In vivo scanning slit confocal microscopy was performed in a patient with Fusarium solani keratitis. Morphologically distinctive abundant filamentous structures were observed intrastromally. Confocal microscopy of the culture plate growing F solani from the patient's corneal scraping revealed filaments morphologically similar to the filaments observed in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the cellular mechanism that allows subretinal hemorrhage to cloud the vitreous. METHODS We simulated subretinal hemorrhage in a rabbit model by injecting autologous blood beneath the retina. At the first appearance of a cloud in the vitreous a vitrectomy was performed and using a surgical microscope, the retina was searched for(More)
