We determined the effect of a body burn on pulmonary function. Full-thickness burns varying in size from 25 to 70% of total body surface (TBS), were produced in sheep. Resuscitation was performed with lactated Ringer's. We noted an increase in lung transvascular fluid flux as measured by lymph flow, Q1, during the resuscitation period, varying from one- to(More)
Our purpose was to determine whether lipid peroxidation of lung tissue, a reflection of O2 radical injury, occurs with endotoxin, and whether the degree of tissue change corresponds with the degree of increased protein permeability. Unanesthetized adult sheep with lung lymph fistulas were given Escherichia coli endotoxin at a dose of 2 micrograms/kg (n =(More)
We studied whether changes in lung function after burns (1- to 12-h period) were due to changes in lung water or airways resistance and the relationship of the changes to prostanoid and O2 radical activity (measured as lipid peroxidation). Twenty-five anesthetized mechanically ventilated adult sheep were given a 40% of body surface scald burn and(More)
The pulmonary and systemic hemodynamic effects of recurrent endotoxemia were studied in the adult sheep with lung lymph fistulas. Six sheep were given 1 mu/kg Escherichia coli endotoxin every 12 hours for 5 days, after which animals were monitored for another 3 days. The pulmonary response to the first three injections was characterized by an initial severe(More)
The antiepileptic drug riluzole is used as a therapeutic agent in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis due to its neuroprotective effects. Besides presynaptic inhibition of GABAergic and preferentially glutamatergic transmission, it also potentiates postsynaptic GABAA-receptor function. We investigated the postsynaptic effects of riluzole on GABAA-receptor(More)
The design, synthesis and pharmacology of novel long-acting exenatide analogs for the treatment of metabolic diseases are described. These molecules display enhanced pharmacokinetic profile and potent glucoregulatory and weight lowering actions compared to native exenatide. [Leu(14)]exenatide-ABD is an 88 residue peptide amide incorporating an Albumin(More)
Pulmonary dysfunction is a well-recognized complication of burn wound excision. It remains unclear whether this is caused by bacteria or inflammatory mediators released during excision of the wound. We produced a 15% full-thickness burn in 18 sheep, and between days 5 and 7 completely excised the wound under general anesthesia. Pulmonary parameters of(More)
The pulmonary and systemic response to a full-thickness burn (15% of total body surface area) was determined in 15 adult sheep. Also compared was the effect of wound bacterial content and prostanoid release on this response. Burn wound thromboxane A2, measured as TxB2, and prostacyclin, measured as 6-keto-PGF1 alpha, were measured in burn wound lymph.(More)

UNLABELLED Local transvascular fluid exchange and generalized hemodynamic alterations in second degree burned goats were studied. Prefemoral and lung lymph fistulas were prepared in 6 goats under local and pentobarbital anesthesia. The catheters were externalized and secured to the skin for collecting lymph to record the volume and determine the mediators(More)
