Plasma concentrations of big endothelin-1 were determined by ELISA in 18 patients with complicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Bangkok. Before therapy, elevated levels were recorded (21 +/- 12 vs. 2.9 +/- 1.1 pmol/L in age- and sex-matched healthy subjects; P < .001). Even 7 days after therapy, elevated concentrations were seen (25 +/- 14 pmol/L).(More)
The problem of the direct retinohypothalamic projection in mammals (Moore, 1973) was reinvestigated in the laboratory mouse by electron microscopy and cobalt chloride-iontophoresis. The time-course of the axonal degeneration in the suprachiasmatic nucleus was studied 3, 6 and 12 h, 1, 2, 4, 6, 9 and 12 days after unilateral retinectomy. Specificity of the(More)
Measuring the incorporation of radioactive thymidine into the cell nucleus gives important information as to cell activation and proliferation. In this study the DNA-intercalating fluorochromes, Hoechst 33342 and Hoechst 33258, were tested as an alternative to the classical [3H]thymidine assay. Mitogen and alloantigen stimulated lymphocytes as well as FK(More)
AIMS Transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) is the diagnostic tool of choice for local staging of rectal carcinoma. The accuracy in determining of tumour infiltration depth has been reported to reach 95% (on average, 85%). The aim of the study was to analyse the diagnostic accuracy of the TRUS in the clinical routine. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 01/01/2000 to(More)
BACKGROUND The problems associated with rectal surgery are frequently discussed with no reference being made to the distance of the tumor from the anal verge. This study examined the effect of the location of the tumor on early postoperative results. PATIENTS AND METHODS This was a multicenter study involving 75 German hospitals and 3756 patients, of whom(More)
Flow cytometry was used to study phagocytic function (uptake of fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled bacteria) and release of reactive oxygen products (dihydrorhodamine 123 converted to rhodamine 123) following phagocytosis by neutrophil granulocytes of heparinized whole blood treated with adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, dobutamine, or orciprenaline.(More)
Serum sCD14, tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), IL-6, and endotoxin were analysed in 45 patients with complicated malaria, in 14 patients with Gram-negative septicaemia and in 24 healthy subjects by ELISA. Malaria patients with renal failure (n = 16) had higher levels than patients without renal failure (n = 29) (8116 + 1440 micrograms/l versus 9453(More)
INTRODUCTION Desmoid tumors are very rare mesenchymal tumors with a partially aggressive growth pattern and high relapse rates. Without metastases, they are classified as semi-malignant tumours. The treatment of this neoplasia is discussed controversially. Up to now, there exists no broad consensus on the treatment regimes. Traditionally, the primary(More)
