The antisecretory and antiulcer activities of 2[[[3-methyl-4-(2,2,2-trifluoroethoxy)-2-pyridyl]methyl] sulfinyl]-1H-benzimidazole (AG-1749) were investigated in dogs and rats. AG-1749 inhibited both the (H+ + K+)-adenosine triphosphatase activity in canine gastric microsomes and dibutyryl cyclic AMP-stimulated acid formation in isolated canine parietal(More)
Indomethacin produces gastric corpus erosions in the fasted rat and small intestinal ulcers in the conventionally fed rat. We found that in rats fed chow pellets for 1 h after a 24-h fast, indomethacin given within 2 h after refeeding produced lesions in the gastric antrum, primarily along the lesser curvature, and also in the small intestine. The antral(More)
We describe a family line with an autosomal recessive disease of muscular dystrophy of the diaphragmatic muscles in Holstein-Friesian cattle. Histopathological examination in the present cases revealed various degenerative changes in the diaphragmatic and other thoracic muscles as follows: variation in muscle fiber diameter, fiber splitting, sarcoplasmic(More)
Five patients underwent mandibular reconstruction using the double barrel fibular graft from 1989 to 1994. Bony defects ranged from 7 to 14 cm. In three patients, two skin flaps were taken with the fibular graft for composite reconstruction. In order to overcome the main disadvantage of the fibular graft, i.e., small circumference of the bone, a harvested(More)
Lansoprazole, a proton pump inhibitor, exerts prominent antiulcer activity via both antisecretory and mucosal protective actions. Although the antisecretory action has been explained by inactivation of (H+, K+)-ATPase in parietal cells, the mode of mucosal protective action remains to be elucidated. In the present study, the effect of lansoprazole on(More)
The effects of 5-acetylspiro[benzofuran-2(3H),1'-cyclopropan]-3-one (AG 629), a newly synthesized compound, on various experimentally induced ulcers were investigated. Oral or intraduodenal administration of AG 629 in a dose range of 25-100 mg/kg inhibited water-immersion stress ulcer, exertion ulcer, Shay ulcer, indometacin- and acetylsalicylic acid(More)
The effects of lansoprazole given intravenously on gastric mucosal lesions, gastric bleeding and acid secretion were investigated in rats in comparison with those of omeprazole, famotidine and ranitidine. Lansoprazole inhibited the formation of gastric mucosal lesions in rats induced by water-immersion stress or aspirin with ID50 values of 0.26 and 0.99(More)
We found indomethacin aggravates healed gastric ulcers (ulcer relapse) in rats. In the present study, we examined the effects of human basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) mutein CS23 (TGP-580) and histamine H2-receptor antagonists (H2-RAs) on ulcer relapse in this model. In male SD rats, gastric ulcers were induced in the antrum by injection of acetic(More)
White rabbits in a family, which were clinically diagnosed as moderately or severely diseased with spirochetosis, were bacteriologically and immunologically examined. The specimens from the diseased rabbits, including affected prepuces, scrotum, or skins with an occasional presence of the spirochetes, did not, however, result in growth in six conventional(More)
