To test the hypothesis that stress alters the performance of the respiratory control system, we compared the acute (20 min) responses to moderate hypoxia and hypercapnia of rats previously subjected to immobilization stress (90 min/day) with responses of control animals. Ventilatory measurements were performed on awake rats using whole body plethysmography.(More)
Activated monocytes may contribute to the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke. We tested the hypothesis that release products and procoagulant activity of monocytes are increased in acute ischemic stroke. In patients on days 1, 3 and 7 after ischemic stroke and in age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects, we assessed plasma levels of interleukin 8 (IL-8)(More)
