Dysfunction of salivary glands is often associated with aging and cancer therapy. Green tea polyphenols were previously found to protect normal epithelial cells from reactive oxygen species, and to induce apoptosis in tumor cells. The current study investigated whether -(-) epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major green tea polyphenol, protects normal(More)
Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is an atherogenic, LDL-like particle of unknown physiologic function. Elevated serum concentrations of Lp(a) have been linked conceptually and epidemiologically to cardiovascular disease [1–3], but their relationship to the progression of renal disease remains much less clear, despite several hypothesized mechanisms by which this(More)
We tested the hypothesis that the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is tolerated at lighter levels of anesthesia than an endotracheal tube (ET). We studied 20 unpremedicated, nonsmoking ASA physical status I or II patients aged 18-40 yr whose surgery lasted > 1 h. Subjects were randomly assigned to receive either an ET or LMA. Anesthesia was induced with(More)
