Activated monocytes with increased expression of proinflammatory cytokines play a major role in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Immunoregulatory cytokines such as IL-4 and IL-10 can effectively suppress the proinflammatory response of activated monocytes. IL-13 is a recently described antiinflammatory agent in vitro. The aim of our study was to determine(More)
Historically, functional hyperemia has been viewed largely as an interaction between a parenchymal cell and its associated microvasculature. Locally released metabolites have been thought to produce relaxation of the smooth muscle and a vasodilation that increases blood flow in proportion to metabolic need. This symposium report presents evidence from a(More)
The phenomenon of "capillary contractility" was first described more than 100 years ago. Recent reports on this phenomenon in the frog mesentery have been based on the observation of dramatic reductions of luminal diameter and blood flow during electrical stimulation of the capillary wall. The aim of this study was to establish the presence and the(More)
In the specific tissue of the rabbit carotid body as well as in the connective tissue surrounding the organ,pO2 distribution was measured with membranecovered needle electrodes (tip diameter 1–2 μm). The histograms resulting from measurements in the specific tissue were shifted to lowpO2 values as compared to other tissues. The oxygen blowing test, i.e.(More)
By combining an incident light microscope (C. Zeiss) with an inverted camera microscope (ICM 405, C. Zeiss) having a common optic axis, it was possible to present simultaneously two microscope images of one object. These images were recorded by two television cameras and displayed on a single monitor with the aid of a video mixer (Pieper, Schwerte). This(More)
