METHODS Urine excreted over 24 hours was collected from volunteers in the four groups. The volumes were recorded and the concentrations of SU and(More)
INTRODUCTION M cells are located in the epithelial layer covering the gut-associated lymphoid tissue and are responsible for delivery of macromolecules and microorganisms to the underlying lymphoid cells. It has been shown that the human colonic cell line Caco-2 can be converted to M cells in vitro following coculture with isolated lymphocytes from murine(More)
Spontaneous Frequency Bursts (SFBs) are a newly discovered form of long-distance neural coordination. They have several distinctive properties, including near-simultaneity of occurrence (+/-25-50 ms) across distant brain regions and high within- and across-site coherence in multiple low and high frequency bands, presumably requiring high axonal, dendritic(More)
The direct effect of intratracheal (IT) administration of human major basic protein (MBP) on pulmonary inspiratory pressure (PIP), and the effect on agonist-induced change in PIP, were determined in anesthetized, ventilated guinea pigs. 500 micrograms MBP increased PIP from 24.1 +/- 4.3 to 49.8 +/- 7.4 cmH2O (p < 0.002, n = 10). Maximum PIP was achieved(More)
