Recent experimental studies have shown that granulocyte-colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) enhanced cardiac function after infarction. The concept of direct cytokine or cell-mediated effects on postischemic myocardial function was tested in the setting of human myocardial infarction subjected to percutaneous coronary intervention. In the FIRSTLINE-AMI study(More)
Congenital sialidosis is a rare lysosomal storage disease caused by a primary neuraminidase deficiency which results from defects in the neuraminidase gene on chromosome 6p. The inheritance is autosomal recessive. Patients exhibit excessive urinary excretion of bound sialic acid and decreased or undetectable amounts of neuraminidase activity in various(More)
Allele and genotype frequencies for seven polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based DNA genetic markers were determined in an Arab sample population. The loci analyzed were HLA-DQA1, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, Gc and D1S80. Results were obtained from the first six loci using the AmpliType HLA-DQ alpha DNA and AmpliType PM PCR Amplification and Typing Kits. The(More)
Simple unmodified N-proline-based di- and tripeptides in combination with sodium hydroxide additive catalyze the asymmetric Michael reaction of ketones with nitroolefins to furnish the corresponding gamma-nitroketones with up to 99% yield, 99:1 dr and 70% ee at room temperature and on water without any organic cosolvent.
