Effects of branched-chain amino acids on protein turnover.
Amino acid availability rapidly regulates protein synthesis and degradation. Increasing amino acid concentrations above the levels found in post-absorptive plasma stimulates protein synthesis in a… Expand
A randomized controlled trial of methylprednisolone in the emergency treatment of acute exacerbations of COPD.
We conducted a randomized, controlled double-blind study to determine whether intravenous administration of methylprednisolone early in the therapy for acute exacerbations of COPD would improve… Expand
Rapid adrenocorticotropic hormone test in practice. Retrospective review.
Retrospective analysis of the rapid adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) test in a large adult population shows a marked interdependence of the basal cortisol concentration, peak cortisol… Expand
The isolation and properties of porcine ferritin and apoferritin.
Abstract Porcine ferritin and apoferritin were purified to a greater degree of homogeneity than has been reported previously. Porcine ferritin was insoluble in the absence of a reducing agent,… Expand
The UV and visible spectral properties of ferritin.
Abstract The results of this investigation show that the visible and near ultraviolet extinction coefficients of the ferritin iron core increase as the content of iron per ferritin molecule… Expand
Evidence for activation of a respiratory burst in the interaction of human neutrophils with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
We examined the capacity of human neutrophils to develop a respiratory burst, as monitored by superoxide release, in response to interaction with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Serum-opsonized,… Expand

The effects of insulin-induced hypoglycemia (IIH) on leucine kinetics (mumol.kg-1.min-1) and interorgan flow of amino acids (AA) were examined in 2 groups of 18-h fasted conscious dogs. Insulin was… Expand
Resource Utilization in Treatment of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in Adults
This study defines determinants of cost of treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis. A chart review for 92 cases of ketoacidosis from 1988 to 1992 in 40 females and 25 males (age range 18 to 81) showed a… Expand
Relationship between arterial blood gases and spirometry in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Previous studies have established spirometric criteria for arterial blood gas analysis during acute asthmatic attacks. However, only general guidelines have been available regarding the need for… Expand
