The in vitro interaction of modulators of topoisomerase I and II with cisplatin in human ovarian carcinoma cells might be synergistic. The interactions were evaluated by median effect analysis of survival data derived from continuous exposure to drug combinations for 10 days in colony-forming assays. The interaction between cisplatin and the topoisomerase I(More)
Acute lung injury (ALI) is characterized by hypoxemia, enhanced permeability of the air-blood barrier, and pulmonary edema. Particularly in the elderly, ALI is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The reasons for this, however, are poorly understood. We hypothesized that age-related changes in pulmonary structure, function, and inflammation(More)
Pulmonary alveolar septa are thought to contain at least two types of fibroblasts that are termed myofibroblasts and lipofibroblasts based on their morphological characteristics. Lipofibroblasts possess cytoplasmic lipid inclusions (lipid bodies or droplets) and are involved in several important functions, such as surfactant synthesis, development, vitamin(More)
2-Arachidonoyl glycerol (2AG) is an endocannabinoid that activates cannabinoid (CB) receptors CB1 and CB2. Monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) inactivates 2AG through hydrolysis to arachidonic acid (AA) and glycerol, thus modulating the activity at CB receptors. In the brain, AA released from 2AG by the action of MAGL serves as a substrate for cyclooxygenases(More)
Two-Color Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) Technique enables the measurement of the progress in mixing on macroand microscale simultaneously. This is done by injecting a mixture of an inert and a reacting fluorescent dye into the vessel. The inert dye serves as a tracer for the macromixing but does not predicate the mixing quality on the nano scale. Since(More)
