Oral verapamil approved for use in all forms of angina, with its additional heart rate-controlling properties has undergone extensive clinical investigation and use since its initial development and has been demonstrated to be safe, well-tolerated and effective over a broad range of cardiovascular disorders. Further potential therapeutic indications for(More)
Optimizing accesses to sources in a mediator/wrapper environment is a critical need. Due to a variety of reasons, relational-based optimization techniques are of no use when having to handle HTTP-based web sources, so new approaches which take into account client/server communication costs must be devised. This paper describes a cost model that stores(More)
To determine the efficacy and safety of oral verapamil in patients with rest angina admitted to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU), a double-blind placebo-controlled trial was undertaken. Of the 65 patients with rest angina screened for the study, 15 met the inclusion criteria (at least two episodes of chest pain associated with ST-T segment changes per 24 hours)(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of losartan therapy on endothelial function by measuring serum nitric oxide (NO) levels and urinary excretion of NO in patients with essential hypertension. A group of 30 untreated stage 2 hypertensive patients (15 males and 15 females; age, 51.3 +/- 1.5 years) were included in the study. Office systolic and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate whether N680S FSHR polymorphism has a predictive value for the ovarian response to stimulation with gonadotropins and cycle outcome in our egg donor program. METHODS The oocyte donor candidates were selected according to the Instituto Bernabeu egg donation program requirements and ASRM and ESHRE(More)
Nitric oxide (NO), a multifunctional effector molecule that plays a central role in the maintenance of vascular homeostasis, regulates vascular tone and inhibits platelet and leukocyte adhesion to endothelial cells. NO status is related to the endothelial function. Patients with hypertension have lower levels of NO, increased free radical production, higher(More)
BACKGROUND Fertilization is a key physiological process for the preservation of the species. Consequently, different mechanisms affecting the sperm and the oocyte have been developed to ensure a successful fertilization. Thus, sperm acrosome reaction is necessary for the egg coat penetration and sperm-oolema fusion. Several molecules are able to induce the(More)
