The aim of this study was to elucidate the therapeutic decision process of angiosarcoma of the scalp and face including treatment modalities, tumor size, tumor grade, and resection margins. In a PubMed search, 170 abstracts were read and 32 full text articles were reviewed. Among them, 19 articles were analyzed. Overall, survival did not differ(More)
The proper identification of illicit plants such as Papaver somniferum L (opium poppy) is important for law enforcement agencies. The identification of opium poppy was presently tested using 10 genetic markers that are universal for all plants or specific to a few poppy plants. The genetic distances of universal markers such as nuclear internal transcribed(More)
THe alpha-adrenoreceptor-related dissociation constant and intrinsic efficacy of the stereoisomers of epinephrine were determined on the rabbit aortic strip. (-)-Epinephrine showed higher affinity than (+)-epinephrine or the desoxy analogue epinine. Efficacy of (+)-epinephrine relative to (-)-epinephrine was low (relative efficacy, er = 0.44). Epinephrine(More)
Renin is essential for renal development and in adult kidneys vitamin D deficiency increases renin gene expression. We aimed to determine whether maternal vitamin D deficiency upregulates fetal renal renin expression, and if this is sustained. We also examined growth and the long-term renal effects in offspring on a normal diet. Female Sprague-Dawley rats(More)
