Structure and biomechanical properties of the trachea of the striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba: evidence for evolutionary adaptations to diving.
This study analyzes the structure and mechanical properties of the trachea of the striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba, one of the most common cetacean species. The cetacean trachea is made up ofExpand

Role of the adrenergic system in a mouse model of oxygen-induced retinopathy: antiangiogenic effects of beta-adrenoreceptor blockade.
PURPOSE Oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR) is a model for human retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). In OIR mice, this study determined whether blockade of β-adrenergic receptors (β-ARs) with propranololExpand

The pathophysiology of retinopathy of prematurity: an update of previous and recent knowledge
Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a disease that can cause blindness in very low birthweight infants. The incidence of ROP is closely correlated with the weight and the gestational age at birth.Expand

Oral propranolol for retinopathy of prematurity: risks, safety concerns, and perspectives.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate safety and efficacy of oral propranolol administration in preterm newborns affected by an early phase of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). STUDY DESIGN Fifty-two pretermExpand

An update on somatostatin receptor signaling in native systems and new insights on their pathophysiology.
The peptide somatostatin (SRIF) has important physiological effects, mostly inhibitory, which have formed the basis for the clinical use of SRIF compounds. SRIF binding to its 5 guanineExpand

Expression, pharmacology, and functional role of somatostatin receptor subtypes 1 and 2 in human macrophages
Somatostatin (SRIF)‐14 is recognized as an important mediator between the nervous and the immune system, although the functional role of its receptors (sst1–sst5) is poorly understood in humans. InExpand

A numerical and experimental study of compliance and collapsibility of preterm lamb tracheae.
Knowledge of the mechanical behaviour of immature tracheae is crucial in order to understand the effects exerted on central airways by ventilatory treatments, particularly of Total LiquidExpand

Expression of neuropeptides and their receptors in the developing retina of mammals.
The present review examines various aspects of the developmental expression of neuropeptides and of their receptors in mammalian retinas, emphasizing their possible roles in retinal maturation.Expand

Somatostatin receptors differentially affect spontaneous epileptiform activity in mouse hippocampal slices
Somatostatin‐14 [somatotropin release‐inhibiting factor (SRIF)] reduces hippocampal epileptiform activity but the contribution of its specific receptors (sst1−5) is poorly understood. We have focusedExpand
