The present study investigated whether changes in thyroid hormone (TH) signalling can occur after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with possible physiological consequences on myocardial performance. TH may regulate several genes encoding important structural and regulatory proteins particularly through the TR alpha 1 receptor which is predominant in the(More)
A grid-oriented Biogenic Emission Model (BEM) has been developed to calculate Non-Methane Volatile Organic Compound (NMVOC) emissions from vegetation in high spatial and temporal resolutions. The model allows the emissions calculation for any modeling domain covering Europe on the basis of: 1) the U.S. Geological Survey 1-km resolution land-use database, 2)(More)
This study investigates the effects of the total solar eclipse of 29 March 2006 on surface air-quality levels over Greece based on observations at a number of sites in conjunction with chemical box modelling and 3-D air-quality modelling. Emphasis is given on surface ozone and other photooxidants at four Greek sites Kastelorizo, Finokalia (Crete), Pallini(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is recognised as a major health problem. Ninety-nine percent of diabetics suffer from type 2 DM and 10% from type 1 and other types of DM. The number of diabetic patients worldwide is expected to reach 380 millions over the next 15 years. The duration of diabetes is an important factor in the pathogenesis of complications, but other(More)
Ozone, PM 10 and PM 2.5 concentrations over Paris, France and Stockholm, Sweden were modelled at 4 and 1 km horizontal resolutions respectively for the present and 2050 periods employing decade-long simulations. We account for large-scale global climate change (RCP-4.5) and fine-resolution bottom-up emission projections developed by local experts and(More)
Left ventricular free wall rupture is a dramatic complication of myocardial infarction. Sub-acute rupture may be compatible with life for several days or even longer. We present a simple and effective technique of construction of a conical apical patch, Chinese-hat, which was applied successfully to the infracted left ventricular (LV) apex with surgical(More)
