A recent hypothesis postulates that sepsis moves through different phases, with periods of enhanced inflammation alternating with periods of immune suppression. In this study we determined the levels of inflammation present during early and late septic deaths to examine whether death was due to hyperinflammation or immunosuppression. The murine model of(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to investigate if the correction of perioperative hypothermia improves sepsis survival. DESIGN Mice with anesthesia-induced perioperative hypothermia had sepsis induced by cecal ligation and puncture and were treated with fluid resuscitation and antibiotics. The mice were either warmed (35 degrees C) or kept at(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expression of pulmonary surfactant in rats with paraquat-induced acute lung injury. METHODS A total of 36 SD rats were randomly divided into the control group (n=6) and paraquat group at 6, 12, 24, 48, 72 h five time points, each time points 6 rats. All of the rats were injected with paraquat (80 mg/kg) for once. The specimens(More)
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a genetic disorder associated with neurofibromin 1 (NF1) gene mutation, which generates an increased risk of variety of tumor types. The current study reports a case involving NF1, pheochromocytoma (PHEO) and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). A 56-year-old man presented with abdominal pain and polypnea. Clinical(More)
Propyl gallate (PG) is a platelet agonist characterized by inducing platelet aggregation, protein tyrosine phosphorylation, and platelet factor 3 activity. The mechanisms of platelet activation following PG stimulation were examined by pre-incubating platelets with well-defined platelet inhibitors using platelet aggregation, protein tyrosine(More)
Platelets were activated with freezing/thawing and thrombin stimulation, and platelet microparticles generated following platelet activation were isolated with ultracentrifugation. The effects of platelet microparticles on platelet activation were studied with annexin V assay, protein tyrosine phosphorylation, and platelet aggregation. Freezing-induced(More)
