Validation and reproducibility of pressure-corrected aortic distensibility measurements using pulse-wave-velocity Doppler ultrasound.
It is suggested that the in vivo measurement of pressure-corrected aortic distensibility may be a useful, non-invasive tool for assessing such patients' susceptibility to atheromatous arterial disease and for monitoring their response to therapy. Expand
Biochemical correlates of aortic distensibility in vivo in normal subjects.
It is found that a relationship existed between the biophysical measurement of aortic compliance and biochemical variables in normal healthy adult subjects and age, and an inverse correlation was found between aorti distensibility and age. Expand
Aortic distensibility in post-menopausal women receiving Tibolone.
A non-invasive Doppler ultrasound technique was used to assess aortic compliance C in vivo in 49 normotensive, normal, healthy post-menopausal female subjects, suggesting that oral administration of Tibolone had altered the dynamic relationship between structural and functional biophysical properties of the aorta in vivo.

A blood pressure independent index of aortic distensibility.
The derivation of an index of distensibility, Cp, which is independent of blood pressure is provided and applied to data collected from 58 normal, healthy volunteers and suggests that the clinical measurement of Cp may be a useful, non-invasive tool for assessing patients' susceptibility to atheromatous arterial disease as well as for monitoring their response to therapy.

Safety of gadoteridol injection: U.S. clinical trial experience
G gadoteridol injection demonstrated excellent clinical safety and patient tolerance at various doses and injection rates. Expand
Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1 is correlated with low density lipoprotein cholesterol in normal subjects.
Based on multivariate regression analysis, sex, body mass index and IGFBP-1 were all independent predictors of LDL cholesterol (all P < 0.05). Expand
Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I levels in postmenopausal women receiving tibolone.
