We estimated the influence of acute glucagon applications on (3)H-histamine uptake by the isolated guinea-pig heart, during a single (3)H-histamine passage through the coronary circulation, before and during anaphylaxis, and the influence of glucagon on level of histamine, NO, O2 (-), and H2O2 in the venous effluent during anaphylaxis. Before anaphylaxis,(More)
Atherosclerosis is a progressive disease characterized by the accumulation of lipids and fibrous elements in arteries. It is characterized by dysfunction of endothelium and vasculitis, and accumulation of lipid, cholesterol, and cell elements inside blood vessel wall. In this study, a continuum-based approach for plaque formation and development in 3-D is(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate histamine blood concentration in subjects suffering from different types of ischemic heart diseases during the period of eight days. Our results showed that the histamine blood level was associated with different types of ischemic heart diseases. The blood histamine level in all investigated patients was(More)
The cellular uptake of (14C)-thiamin hydrochloride was studied in the isolated perfused guinea pig heart, using the rapid single circulation, paired-tracer technique, in which D-(3H)-mannitol serves as an extracellular marker. Cellular uptake of this vitamin was estimated by directly comparing venous dilution profiles of (14C) and (3H) radioactivities in(More)
Most of hyperelastic models for the constitutive modeling of the typical mechanical behaviour of the arterial wall tissue in literature are based on the test data from different animals and arteries. This paper is concerned with the material parameter identification of several phenomenological hyperelastic models by fitting the data from five(More)
The dynamics and kinetics of thyroid hormone transport in the isolated rat heart were examined using the modified unidirectional paired tracer dilution method. The uptake of (125)I-thyroxine ((125)I-T(4)) and (125)I-triiodothyronine ((125)I-T(3)) from the extracellular space into heart cells was measured relative to the extracellular space marker(More)
L-Arginine is the physiological substrate for the formation of nitric oxide (NO) and accounts for the biological activity of endothelium-derived relaxing factor. We have studied L-arginine transport in the heart using a rapid dual-isotope dilution technique. The time course of L-[3H]arginine uptake (extraction) by the isolated perfused guinea-pig heart was(More)
The myocardial reperfusion following ischemia leads to the ischemic vasodilation by affecting the release of various vasoactive substances, such as free radicals, NO, and histamine. In addition, some evidences suggest that glucagon itself may alter the release of those substances. In this study, we investigated the ischemic vasodilation of the isolated rat(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Hyperglicemia is common in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and is associated with high risk of mortality and morbidity. Relationship between admission plasma glucose (APG) levels and mortality in diabetic and nondiabetic patients with STEMI needs further investigation. The aim of this study was to analyse the short-(More)
