To the Editor: We read with interest a study by Talke et al [1] regarding measurement of systolic blood pressure using a pulse oximeter. We appreciate the fact that an oximeter can be successfully used to monitor systolic pressure in anesthetized patients and healthy volunteers. We have used it successfully, even in patients with "pulseless disease" [2]. We(More)
Changes in peritubular capillary hydrostatic and oncotic pressures, which probably affect net interstitial pressure and, thus, the force on fluid movement across the tubule basement membrane, can modulate absolute proximal reabsorption rate (APR). To examine the relationship between APR and net interstitial pressure, we measured peritubular capillary(More)
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by beta cell destruction, insulin deficiency and hyperglycemia. Activated macrophages and autoimmune T cells play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of hyperglycemia in NOD murine diabetes models, but the molecular mechanisms of macrophage activation are unknown. We recently(More)
