Apart from becaplermin (recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor homodimer of B chains, PDGF-BB), for the treatment of lower extremity diabetic ulcers, few agents are available for pharmacological stimulation of wound healing. We have compared the mechanism of action of the potential wound healing agent, PL 14736 (G E P P P G K P A D D A G L V),(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate safety, efficacy or complications of uterine artery embolization (UAE). Patients with symptomatic uterine fibroids (n = 157) were treated by selective bilateral UAE using 350-500 μm sized polyvinyl alcohol particles. Bilateral UAE was successful in 152 (96.8%) cases.

The aim of this study was to investigate the mutagenic and antigenotoxic effects of different doses of the flavonoid, apigenin, alone and in combination with the antitumor drugs, cyclophosphamide and doxorubicin, in vitro and in vivo. Using bacterial reverse mutation inhibition in vitro, with and without metabolic activation, the effect of apigenin (10-400(More)
Although inhaled glucocorticoids are known to have systemic effects on bone metabolism, there is little comparative information on their relative potencies. The effects of three standard glucocorticoids in causing changes in bone metabolism and growth, therefore, were investigated in relation to other systemic effects in the rat. Given to male(More)
