The JAK2 pathway is activated in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
BackgroundIdiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most rapidly progressive and fatal fibrotic disorder, with no curative therapies. The signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3)Expand
Use of cyanoacrylate adhesives in general surgery
This paper presents a review of the use of cyanoacrylate adhesives (CA) in general surgery and digestive surgery, studies the mechanisms of action and interactions of CAs in adherent tissues, andExpand
1 Experiments were designed to evaluate the effect of the pharmacological activation of β‐adrenoceptors on various models of gastric ulcer in the rat. 2 Pretreatment with the β‐adrenoceptor stimulantExpand
[Treatment of gastroesophageal reflux by pexis to the round ligament. Report of 100 operated patients followed-up for 16 to 23 years].
In a study of 1,491 patients operated with ligament cardiopexy from 1,694 onwards, which we published in 1986, we reviewed 100 consecutive cases operated 15 years earlier or more. The review wasExpand
Effects of zinc sulphate on gastric mucosal blood flow and gastric emptying of the rat
Abstract— Zinc sulphate (50 mg kg−1 p.o.) did not modify basal gastric mucosal blood flow, as measured by [3H]aniline clearance, but inhibited its reduction by noradrenaline (3.5 μg kg−1 min‐1). ZincExpand
Effects of cimetidine, atropine and prostaglandin E2 on rat mucosal erosions produced by intragastric distension.
The effects of three typical antisecretory agents: cimetidine, atropine and prostaglandin E2 were compared on an acute rat gastric ulcer model which consisted of perfusing the stomach continuously,Expand
Effects of Ca2+ channel antagonists in guinea-pig normal and skinned gall bladder.
CaCl2 (0.01-50 mM, in K(+)-depolarized tissues), KCl (0.1-100 mM) and acetylcholine (1 nM-10 mM) produced concentration-dependent contractions of guinea-pig isolated gall bladder. Nifedipine (1-100Expand
Intraoperative Assessment of the Proximal Gastric Vagotomy Completeness by a Simple pH Test
Proximal gastric vagotomy (PGV) may be the best surgical treatment for duodenal ulcer (DU) if their recurrences, due mostly to insufficient denervation, can be reduced. This review demonstrates that d
Extraction of polyphenols in Himanthalia elongata and determination by high performance liquid chromatography with diode array detector prior to its potential use against oxidative stress.
Several studies have demonstrated the antioxidant capacity of seaweeds, which can be used for the development of biopharmaceuticals with extensive medical application. Antioxidant therapies appear toExpand
Gastric juice and analysis of basal and stimulated secretion following treatment with rice-bran oil.
In determining whether rice-bran oil (RBO) has antisecretory activity, we induced stress ulcers in 20 Wistar rats (10 controls; 10 animals given 0.2 ml/day RBO orally for 4 days prior to ulcerExpand
