OBJECTIVE Inflammatory mechanisms are involved in atherosclerotic plaque rupture and subsequent thrombin formation. Thrombin not only plays a central role in thrombus formation and platelet activation, but also in the induction of inflammatory processes. We assessed the hypothesis that melagatran, a direct thrombin inhibitor, attenuates plaque progression(More)

Background—In patients with atherosclerosis, hepatic hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (CSE) inhibitors may reduce the activation of inflammation. Because Chlamydia pneumoniae infection has been linked to coronary artery disease through the induction of plaque inflammation, we investigated whether cerivastatin affects the infection rate of human(More)
To experience is to undergo a process, to be in a state of receiving input which affords information about our environment. For highly developed beings like ourselves, the inputs determining states of conscious sensory perception are among the most important for our survival. At first glance, these states seem relational, each being a situation wherein a(More)
We report upon a case of total retraction of an electrode (Twiddler syndrom) in an infected pacemaker battery. The silk-thread fixation was still fastened at the right place on the electrode; the tissue owing to the inflammation was no longer sufficient as a fixation point. The casues of this total retraction of the electrode are the following factors: the(More)
