The aims of the present study were to investigate the influence of laserneedle acupuncture on olfactory sensitivity and to examine whether the attitude towards laserneedle acupuncture affects the outcome. Olfaction was tested repeatedly on two days using the olfactory detection threshold subtest of the Sniffin' Sticks test battery in sixty-four healthy(More)
Hypersecretion of glucagon contributes to abnormally increased hepatic glucose output in type 2 diabetes. Somatostatin (SST) inhibits murine glucagon secretion from isolated pancreatic islets via somatostatin receptor subtype-2 (sst2). Here, we characterize the role of sst2 in controlling glucose homeostasis in mice with diet-induced obesity. Sst2-deficient(More)
Upon ConA stimulation, peripheral blood mononuclear leukocytes from psoriatic patients show an impaired IFN-gamma production. Normal IFN-gamma values were obtained, however, with PHA or PWM as inducers. Moreover, psoriatic cells responded well to vesicular stomatitis virus as inducer of IFN-alpha. Thus, the defect is not an all-out inability of all(More)
