Background: Creatine kinase isoenzyme MB (CK-MB) activity using the immunoinhibition method has been measured in clinical laboratories. However, the presence of mitochondrial CK (MtCK) abnormally increases CK-MB activity when measured using the conventional method, which can lead to misdiagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). A new CK-MB activity(More)
Electromyographic activity was evaluated in 20 patients (10 girls and 10 boys, mean age 10 years) with Class III malocclusion who were treated with a chin cup appliance. The posttreatment data were obtained at the end of phase 1 chin cup treatment when the anterior crossbite had been corrected. EMG activity of the masseter and temporal muscles for each(More)
Radioimmunoassay specific for GRP was developed using C-terminal specific anti-synthetic porcine GRP sera. Measurement of the porcine gastrointestine and brain tissue extracts with GRP and with bombesin radioimmunoassays indicates that the bombesin-like immunoreactivity found in the porcine tissues is attributable to GRP or GRP-like materials. GRP-like(More)
