The in vitro locomotion of lymphocyte subsets has previously been determined by use of highly purified cell populations. A method is now described in which mixed peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) migrate to the undersurface of polycarbonate filters in a 48 well microassay, the responding cells being characterised by alkaline phosphatase-anti-alkaline(More)
BACKGROUND Intestinal tuberculosis occurs mainly in the terminal ileum and caecum, where the concentration of bile acids is lowest, and rarely in the upper digestive tract. OBJECTIVES We examined the effect of physiological concentrations of bile acids on the in vitro growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). METHODS The 4 major bile acids, lithocolic(More)
Topical clobetasol propionate or vehicle ointment was applied daily for 3 days to psoriatic plaques on eight patients. Skin chamber exudates from untreated, steroid and vehicle treated lesions were assayed for arachidonic acid (AA), leukotriene B4 (LTB4), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and 12-hydroxy-5,8,10,14-eicosatetraenoic acid (12-HETE) before, and at 24 h(More)
1 3-hydroxy-5-trifluoromethyl-N-[2-(2-thienyl)-2-phenyl-ethenyl]-benzo(B) thiophene-2-carboxamide (L-652,343) is a 5-lipoxygenase and cyclo-oxygenase inhibitor in vitro. 2 In psoriasis increased concentrations of arachidonic acid transformation products are found in the lesional skin which may be important in the pathogenesis of the disease. We have(More)
The present study evaluates the protective effects of an antioxidant-rich extract of Spinacea oleracea (NAOE) in abnormalities associated with the metabolic syndrome (MetS) in rats. HPTLC of NAOE revealed the presence of 13 total antioxidants, 14 flavonoids, and 10 phenolic acids. Rats administered with fructose (20% w/v) in drinking water for 45 days to(More)
