Nonuniformity in the spatial patterning of gap junctions between heart muscle cells is now recognized as an important determinant of electromechanical function in working myocardium. Breakdown of the normal geometry of electrical intercellular connectivity in diseased myocardium correlates with reentry, arrhythmia, and conduction disturbance. The(More)
The pH dependence of Schistosoma mansoni cercarial penetration and transformation was determined using a gelatin:agar matrix, containing 3mM linoleate, as a penetration substrate. Penetration was largely unaffected by pH, approaching 100% over the pH range of 5.4 to 8.2, while transformation had an optimum pH range between 6.2 and 7.4. Within this pH range,(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Because the risk of major bleeding associated with warfarin increases with increasing international normalized ratio (INR) as well as with advanced age, we evaluated the association between age and INR in patients with major bleeding events related to anticoagulation with warfarin.
