BACKGROUND Within an ongoing birth cohort study (LISA) the cytokine production of cord blood T cells was compared between neonates from Leipzig (East Germany) and Munich (West Germany). The aim of this study was to analyse regional differences and influencing factors of the immune status. METHODS Cytokine production was measured in a randomly selected(More)
The current authors examined whether mite and cat allergen and bacterial endotoxin levels in dust of the mothers' mattresses were associated with cord blood immunoglobulin (Ig)E (CB-IgE) levels in newborns. Data from 1,332 term and normal weight neonates, from an ongoing birth cohort study, influences of life-style related factors on the immune system and(More)
This study compared glycerol trinitrate (NTG) oral spray in a new hydrophilic formulation with a reference aerosol in a lipophilic base with respect to the time to onset of action on hemodynamics and on the coronary vasomotor tone. Differences in the profile of action between the two spray formulations were assessed in two groups of ten patients each. In(More)
Relaxin concentrations during pregnancy and parturition were measured in tissue specimens of the uterine cervix of 27 women in childbearing age. During pregnancy relaxin levels increase from 0.4 guinea pig unit (GPU) to 0.94 GPU/mg soluble tissue protein. Already during parturition (0.41 GPU) and immediately post partum (0.39 GPU) the hormone concentrations(More)
A simple procedure for the purification of the peptide hormone relaxin is discrebed. It allows prepare with good yield highly purified relaxin of an activity of 700 GPU/mg protein. For the first time ion-exchange chromatography by Amberlite IRA-410 and subsequent gel filtration on sephadex G-25 fine were used as purifications steps. Ein einfaches(More)
Thermal requirements of larval weatherfish Misgurnus fossilis were investigated in terms of growth, survival and aerobic performance. Growth and survival of M. fossilis larvae acclimated to five temperatures (11, 15, 19, 23 and 27° C) were measured over 25 days. In the upper temperature treatments (19, 23 and 27° C), survival of larvae was stable throughout(More)
