The ability of Δ 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabinol (CBN), cannabidiol (CBD), 11-OH THC and 8α,11-diOH THC to antagonise the abdominal constriction response in the mouse induced by formic acid, phenylquinone, 5-hydroxytryptamine, prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) and bradykinin was tested. THC was an effective antagonist against all nociceptive agents with an(More)
For eliciting contraction of rabbit aorta, the relative potency of agonists in terms of negative log molar ED50 were: oxymetazoline (8.4) greater than naphazoline (7.95) greater than phenylephrine (7.31) greater than tetrahydrozoline (6.5) greater than tolazoline (5.80). None of the imidazolines, however, produced maximal effects equal to that of(More)
OBJECTIVE The WHO guidelines for children less than 18 months old diagnosed with HIV based on presumptive clinical diagnosis or one virologic test recommend confirmatory HIV antibody testing after 18 months of age. This study describes post-18-month HIV test results following this WHO-recommended confirmatory testing strategy. DESIGN Case series and(More)
The mechanism whereby thyroglobulin (TG) reaches the circulation can involve either the release of newly synthesized TG or the release of colloid-stored TG from the thyroid gland. To distinguish between these possibilities, we have compared the properties of circulating and glandular TG in normal and thyroidectomized thyroid tumor-bearing rats. Circulating(More)
Gingival fibroblasts (GFs) play a considerable role in the maintenance of the gingival apparatus as well as in connective tissue repair. Mobility of a periodontal wound or soft tissue graft can impair connective tissue healing from the GFs. Enamel matrix derivative (EMD) is an enamel matrix protein used clinically for periodontal regeneration of intrabony(More)
