BACKGROUND & AIMS Somatostatin peptides are potent inhibitors of intestinal ion secretion, providing the rationale for their use in treating secretory diarrhea. However, the nature of the receptors that mediate these effects is unclear. The aims of this study were to investigate expression of somatostatin receptor subtypes (SSTRs) 1-5 in rat colonic(More)
The Green Driver app is a dynamic routing application for GPS-enabled smartphones. Green Driver combines client GPS data with real-time traffic light information provided by cities to determine optimal routes in response to driver route requests. Routes are optimized with respect to travel time, with the intention of saving the driver both time and fuel,(More)

Gelatinase A is one of the matrix metalloproteinases, the principle enzymes degrading extracellular matrix (ECM) and basement membrane components. The aim of this study was to study gelatinase expression in systemic sclerosis (SSc). Fibroblasts were grown from uninvolved and involved skin of SSc patients and from healthy controls. Gelatinase activity was(More)
