Basal metabolic rate (BMR), thermic effect of food (TEF), and total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) were measured in six nonobese and seven obese adolescents during periods of weight maintenance and 2 wk of carbohydrate overfeeding. BMR and TEF were measured by indirect calorimetry and TDEE by the doubly labeled water method. Fasting blood levels of(More)
In order to determine whether endotoxemia induced generalized defects in vascular contraction and endothelium-dependent relaxation, we studied the effect of in vivo endotoxin administration in Sprague-Dawley rats and New Zealand White rabbits on endothelial and arterial smooth-muscle responses of isolated thoracic aorta in vitro. Endotoxin treatment(More)
PURPOSE Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), a macrophage/monocyte derived pluripotent cytokine is associated with tissue ischemia, neuronal damage and remodeling. The physiological level of TNF-α in aqueous humor of normal and glaucomatous eyes is unknown. In this study, we evaluated the TNF-α levels in aqueous in patients with primary open angle glaucoma(More)
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) is present in gastric mucosa, but its direct effect on parietal cells is unknown. We examined this using 14C-aminopyrine uptake in elutriated rabbit cells. PACAP-27 had no effect on basal cells but significantly increased the response to histamine (10(-4) M) at 10(-9) M and to carbachol (10(-4) M)(More)
