Changes in pulmonary structure and function induced by monocrotaline intoxication.
Monocrotaline, a pyrrolizidine alkaloid derived from Crotalaria spectabilis, is known to be toxic to a variety of domestic and laboratory animals and to humans. Major pathological effects induced byExpand

Protection of mice against lethal endotoxemia by a lipid A precursor.
Lipid X, the major biosynthetic precursor of lipid A, has recently been described. Although lipid X is a mitogen and coagulates the Limulus amebocyte lysate, we found that it is not lethal for mice,Expand

Pharmacological evidence that human intralobar airways do not contain different receptors that mediate contractions to leukotriene C4 and leukotriene D4.
Contractile responses to leukotriene (LT)C4, LTD4 and LTE4 were examined in intralobar airways from human lung obtained after surgical resection. In addition, the ability of the LT receptorExpand

Oxygen transport in the llama (Lama glama).
Abstract Three male llamas 5–14 months old and born at sea level were studied first at 260 m altitude, and again after 5 and 10 weeks at 3420 m. Observations were made with the animals awake,Expand

Redox status in the control of pulmonary vascular tone.
There is mounting evidence that the tone, and possibly the structure, of the pulmonary vasculature is regulated by the redox status (GSH/GSSG, NADPH/NADP) of the pulmonary vascular smooth muscleExpand

Taser Blunt Probe Dart-To-Heart Distance Causing Ventricular Fibrillation in Pigs
The maximum distance between the heart and a model Taser stimulation dart, called the dart-to-heart distance, at which the Taser can directly cause ventricular fibrillation (VF), was measured in pigs. Expand

Myocardial perfusion and function during acute right ventricular systolic hypertension.
Hemodynamics, myocardial function, and regional myocardial blood flow (MBF) were measured in 6 closed-chest ponies anesthetized with ketamine hydrochloride before (control) and after creation ofExpand

An examination of the influence of the epithelium on contractile responses to peptidoleukotrienes and blockade by ICI 204,219 in isolated guinea pig trachea and human intralobar airways.
The influence of the epithelium on antagonism by ICI 204,219 of contractile responses to peptide leukotriene (LT) agonists was examined in guinea pig tracheal and human bronchial rings. The -logExpand

A floating sleeve antenna yields localized hepatic microwave ablation
We report a novel coaxial antenna for hepatic microwave ablation, that is, a metal conductor electrically isolated from the outer connector of the antenna. Expand
