Loss of endothelium-dependent relaxant activity in the pulmonary circulation of rats exposed to chronic hypoxia.
To determine whether exposure to chronic hypoxia and subsequent development of pulmonary hypertension induces alterations of endothelium-dependent relaxation in rat pulmonary vascular bed, we studiedExpand

Ischemia and reperfusion-induced histologic changes in the rat retina. Demonstration of a free radical-mediated mechanism.
Histologic alterations of ischemia- and reperfusion-induced retinal damage are critically dependent on the duration of the period of ischemia. Male Sprague Dawley rats were anesthetized, and a sutureExpand

Comparative effects of indomethacin, acetylenic acids, 15-HETE, nordihydroguaiaretic acid and BW755C on the metabolism of arachidonic acid in human leukocytes and platelets.
Human leukocytes and platelets were preincubated with inhibitors of the oxidative metabolism of arachidonic acid, viz, indomethacin, BW755C, 5, 8, 11, 14-eicosatetraynoic acid (ETYA), 5, 8,Expand

The role of neutrophils and platelet-activating factor in mediating experimental pancreatitis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Pancreatitis is characterized by inflammation and death of acinar cells. Death can occur by either necrosis or apoptosis. The initial injury may cause expression of cytokines thatExpand

Ligation of CD23 triggers cAMP generation and release of inflammatory mediators in human monocytes.
Transduction through the CD23 molecule (Fc epsilon RII) was analyzed in normal human monocytes using monoclonal antibodies to CD23 (MHM6 and 135) and IgE/anti-IgE immune complexes. MonocytesExpand

Distinct platelet-activating factor binding sites in synaptic endings and in intracellular membranes of rat cerebral cortex.
The binding of 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (AGEPC or PAF, platelet-activating factor) to synaptic plasma membranes, microsomal membranes, and other rat cerebral cortex subcellularExpand

β 2‐Adrenoceptor agonists regulate the IL‐4‐induced phenotypical changes and IgE‐dependent functions in normal human monocytes
The β 2‐adrenoceptor agonists salbutamol and fenoterol were tested for their regulatory effects on human monocyte phenotype and functions, either alone or in combination with interleukin‐4 (IL‐4).Expand

Functional interaction between beta 2-adrenoceptor agonists and interleukin-4 in the regulation of CD23 expression and release and IgE production in human.
Normal human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) produced IgE when stimulated with IL-4. In the present report it was shown that beta 2-adrenoceptor agonists, salbutamol and fenoterol,Expand
