BACKGROUND In patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), a rate of restenosis as high as 50% is observed after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Frequently, this results in further revascularization procedures. Lifestyle intervention has been shown to slow the progression of CAD and to reduce cardiovascular events after myocardial(More)
The present study was carried out to evaluate the effect of a low-dose intravenous supplementation of L-arginine on insulin-mediated vasodilatation and insulin sensitivity. The study was performed in healthy subjects (n = 7) and patients with obesity (n = 9) and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) (n = 9). Insulin-mediated vasodilatation was(More)
Epidermal strips with closed stomata were exposed to malic acid labelled with 14C either uniformly or in 4-C only. During incubation with [U-14C]malate, radioactivity appeared in products of the tricarboxylic-acid cycle and in transamination products within 10 min, in sugars after 2 h. Hardly any radioactivity was found in sugars if [4-14C]malate had been(More)
In vitro studies of dark (14)CO(2) fixation with isolated cell aggregates of Kalanchoë fedtschenkoi showed that malate synthesized after 20 sec is predominantly (85 to 92%) labeled at carbon 4, while after 20 min only 65 to 69% of the radioactivity was located in this position. The intramolecular labeling pattern of malate could not be changed by(More)
Dose-frequency curves of toxic effects of a substance A were evaluated in the absence and in the presence of a fixed dose of a second substance B. Data were fitted by the curve-fitting program ALLFIT. Observed combined frequencies of A + B were compared statistically with the expected frequencies of additivity and (or) independence by the phi 2-square(More)
To differentiate between extrarenal and renal causes of hyperuricaemia and gout, clearances of urate and creatinine were monitored for 3 1/2 days in fifty-two individuals (seven with a history of gout) with no gross impairment of renal function (creatinine clearance 52-137 ml/min). Dietary purine intake was kept constant. Monophasic circadian fluctuations(More)
BACKGROUND Premixed insulin analogues reduce postprandial hyperglycemia in patients with Type 2 diabetes in comparison to premixed regular insulin. Insulin also plays an important role in the regulation of postprandial lipid metabolism. It is known that increased levels of postprandial insulin reduce postprandial hyperlipemia but, on the other hand, no(More)
High fat meals postprandially impair macrovascular endothelial function and a link to increased oxidative stress is suggested. Few information, on the other hand, exists on the effect of postprandial hyperlipidaemia on resistance vessel function. Under normal circumstances this vascular bed regulates tissue perfusion and, by controlling flow, impacts on(More)
This paper presents the hardware-in-the-loop simulations of a hybrid flight control system for a light aircraft consisting of mechanical, electromechanical and digital components. The simulation was performed at a light aircraft simulation lab SimStar at Brno University of Technology. The aim was the validation and verification of the operational(More)
