A new facile method has been established for the synthesis of N-alpha-substituted benzimidazoles by cyclodesulphurization of various N-[2-amino]-phenyl-N'-alkyl, -aryl and -aralkylthiourea derivatives with mercuric salts. Besides mercuric chloride, the use of mercuric oxide and mercuric acetate was successful for the first time in effecting ring closure of(More)
Blood specimens from twenty-six renal transplant recipients treated with cyclosporine (CsA) were collected at weekly intervals, two months after transplantation. Specimens were grouped according to their CsA concentrations. Group I consisted of ten specimens with CsA concentration of >400 ng/ml; group II consisted of ten specimens with CsA concentrations(More)
Because of structural similarities between low density lipoproteins (LDL) and lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)), we have investigated the properties and the functional activities of oxidized Lp(a) and focused on whether oxidized Lp(a), like oxidized LDL, can induce monocyte differentiation and adhesion of monocytic cells to endothelial cells grown in culture.(More)
