BACKGROUND Plasma concentrations of natriuretic peptides are often elevated in chronic hemodialysis patients and difficult to interpret due to accumulation, high incidence of cardiac disease and changes in volume status. Mid-regional pro-ANP is a newly developed assay whereas BNP and its fragment NT-pro-BNP are available for a longer time. In this(More)
For differentiation-defective malignancies, compounds that modulate transcription, such as retinoic acid and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors, are of particular interest. HDAC inhibitors are currently under investigation for the treatment of a broad spectrum of cancer diseases. However, one clinical drawback is class-specific toxicity of unselective(More)
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) has been shown to modulate endometrial differentiation in vivo and in vitro. Therefore, endometrial stromal cell EGF receptors were characterized in intact endometrial stromal cells, cultured in vitro. The methods used for characterization were flow cytometry, binding and displacement studies, and gel electrophoresis followed(More)
