Molecular Imaging of Inflammation in Atherosclerosis With Targeted Ultrasound Detection of Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule-1
Background— The ability to image vascular inflammatory responses may allow early diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis. We hypothesized that molecular imaging of vascular cell adhesionExpand

Mixed meal and light exercise each recruit muscle capillaries in healthy humans.
Intense exercise and insulin each increases total limb blood flow and recruits muscle capillaries, presumably to facilitate nutrient exchange. Whether mixed meals or light exercise likewise recruitsExpand

Microvascular recruitment is an early insulin effect that regulates skeletal muscle glucose uptake in vivo.
Insulin increases glucose disposal into muscle. In addition, in vivo insulin elicits distinct nitric oxide synthase-dependent vascular responses to increase total skeletal muscle blood flow and toExpand

Ultrasound Assessment of Inflammation and Renal Tissue Injury With Microbubbles Targeted to P-Selectin
Background—Routine methods capable of assessing tissue inflammation noninvasively are currently not available. We hypothesized that tissue retention of microbubbles targeted to the endothelial cellExpand

Binding and detachment dynamics of microbubbles targeted to P-selectin under controlled shear flow.
This study was performed to assess the binding kinetics of a targeted microbubble contrast agent exposed to shear stress. An ultrasound contrast targeted to P-selectin was designed by conjugatingExpand

Vascular recruitment in skeletal muscle during exercise and hyperinsulinemia assessed by contrast ultrasound.
The purpose of this study was to noninvasively quantify the effects of insulin on capillary blood volume (capBV) and RBC velocity (V(RBC)) in skeletal muscle in vivo with the use of contrast-enhancedExpand
