We studied the effects of cortisol and triiodothyronine (T3) on 20-day fetal rat lung cell cultures. Cortisol enhanced the production of surfactant-associated saturated phosphatidylcholine while T3 did not. However, T3 potentiated the cortisol effect. We observed that T3 enhanced the response of cultures enriched with alveolar type H cells to(More)
Background. Long-term studies have reported that the rate of conversion surgeries after open VBG ranged from 49.7 to 56%. This study is aiming to compare between LMGB and LRYGB as conversion surgeries after failed open VBG with respect to indications and operative and postoperative outcomes. Methods. Sixty patients (48 females and 12 males) presenting with(More)
PURPOSE Single anastomosis sleeve ileal bypass (SASI) procedure appears as a new metabolic and bariatric surgery based on Santoro's operation, in which a sleeve gastrectomy is followed by a side-to-side gastroileal anastomosis. The study is aimed to evaluate the short-term outcomes of laparoscopic single anastomosis sleeve ileal bypass with respect to(More)
When trypsin-dissociated liver cells from 17-day chick embryos were grown in regular minimum essential medium, mixed hepatocyte-fibroblast cultures resulted. When D-valine was substituted for L-valine in this medium, fibroblast growth was suppressed, leaving virtually pure hepatocyte cultures. Tyrosine aminotransferase activity is induced by cortisol in(More)
