Between January 1991 and July 1992, 350 laparoscopic cholecystectomies were performed. There were six biliary complications (1.7 per cent): common bile duct (CBD) injury (one patient), delayed CBD necrosis (one), immediate postoperative bile leakage (one) and delayed bile leakage (three). All six patients required laparotomy. Primary repair with long-arm T(More)
Peptide YY (PYY) and neuropeptide Y (NPY) are peptides that coordinate intestinal activities in response to luminal and neuronal signals. In this study, using the rat hybrid small intestinal epithelial cell line, hBRIE 380i cells, we demonstrated that PYY- and NPY-induced rearrangement of actin filaments may be in part through a Y1alpha and/or a nonneuronal(More)
Bilirubin exhibits antioxidant and antimutagenic effects in vitro. Additional tetrapyrroles that are naturally abundant were tested for antigenotoxicity in Salmonella. Un-/conjugated bilirubin (1 and 2), biliverdin (4), bilirubin and biliverdin dimethyl esters (3 and 5), stercobilin (6), urobilin (7), and protoporphyrin (8) were evaluated at physiological(More)
Published: February 5, 2014 Figure 4. Antimutagenic effects of (A) bilirubin (1), bilirubin ditaurate (2), bilirubin dimethyl ester (3); (B) biliverdin (4), biliverdin dimethyl ester (5); and (C) stercobilin (6), urobilin (7), and protoporphyrin (8) against metabolically activated 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP, 10; 0.1 × 10−7(More)
