These experiments were undertaken to study the effects of cyclosporine A (CsA) on liver regeneration after an isogeneic orthotopic reduced-size hepatic transplantation (RSHT) in rats. Male Wistar rats were treated with or without a daily injection of CsA beginning 24 hr before surgery and were subjected to a 68% partial hepatectomy. A isogeneic orthotopic(More)
We studied the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] as a function of apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)] phenotype in 87 members (42 males, 45 females) of 20 diabetic families, 26 of whom were diagnosed with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) with moderate glycaemic control (HbA1c7.1±1.2%).
