The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of endothelins on fluid the NaCl absorption across the jejunum, the jejunal fluid and NaCl absorption and mesenteric hemodynamics in jejunal loops in anesthetized dogs during infusion of saline, endothelin-1 or endothelin-3 into the superior mesenteric artery. Infusion of endothelin-3 decreased the net(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to develop a novel folate receptor-targeted drug delivery system for retinoblastoma cells using doxorubicin (DOX) as a model drug. METHODS Biodegradable DOX-loaded poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide)-poly(ethylene glycol)-folate (PLGA-PEG-FOL) micelles (DOXM) were prepared with various solvents (dimethylsulfoxide,(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of endothelin (ET) on fluid and NaCl absorption across the jejunum. Dogs were anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium (30 mg/kg i.v.). Polyethylene catheters were placed in the superior mesenteric arteries and portal vein for infusions and to measure arterial and portal venous pressure. Superior(More)
