IgG immunoreactivity to Malassezia pachydermatis was compared in atopic and non-atopic dogs. Malassezia pachydermatis proteins with a molecular weight of 98 kDa were recognized at a significantly higher frequency in the sera of atopic dogs. Most of the atopic dogs with Malassezia dermatitis had a greater IgG response than did normal dogs.
BACKGROUND Impact of plaque composition on late stent malapposition (LSM) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation has not been evaluated. METHODS We evaluated the relation between plaque components at poststenting peristent area (between external elastic membrane and stent areas) and LSM after DES implantation in 266 patients (314 native lesions;… (More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play a key role in the maintenance of endothelial homeostasis and promote vascular repair. A reduced number of EPCs and the functional activity have been associated with several cardiovascular risk factors. However, the relationship between the number of EPCs and circadian rhythm of… (More)
