In vivo observations of the immature beagle puppy retina indicates that in general O2-breathing induces vasoconstriction whereas CO2 or CO2 combined with O2 induces vasodilation. It was the goal of this study to determine whether a specific correlation could be found between this pattern of vascular response to changes in blood gas content and production of(More)
We administered indomethacin orally for the treatment of premature labor in a prospective, randomized, double-blind fashion, and all infants were followed up. Indomethacin was significantly more effective than placebo in inhibition of premature labor during a 24-hour course of therapy, with treatment failure during therapy occurring in only one of 15(More)
BACKGROUND In April 1986, numerous reactor workers and firemen were exposed to high doses of ionizing radiation during the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident. Apart from high ambient gamma-ray exposures they received inhomogeneous contamination with beta-rays from fission products, resulting in severe skin exposure. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixteen of(More)
The aim of this research was to evaluate mutual interchangeability of four principally different biometric instrumental techniques designed for objective measurement of changes in the physical, mechanical, and topographical properties of the skin surface treated with commercial antiaging cosmetic products with hyaluronic acid. The following instrumental(More)
PURPOSE The work is aimed at the description and study of the hydration effect of different active substances (hyaluronic acid, sericin, glycerol, and urea) incorporated in two different vehicles commonly used for compounding pharmaceutical ingredients, gel, and emulsion. METHODS The effects of the formulations were investigated by instrumental methods in(More)
While prostaglandin production by uterine tissue has been shown to be involved in the contractile mechanism of this tissue, less attention has focused upon the involvement of other prostanoids. We have simultaneously measured in vitro isometric contractility of pregnant rat uteri with the release of prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF), 6-keto-prostaglandin F1(More)
Recent evidence indicates that thromboxanes are produced by uterine tissues. The effect of platelet-generated thromboxane A2 (TXA2) was therefore studied for its effect on uterine contractions. An incubation tube consisting of washed platelets (WP) was incubated with sodium arachidonate (AA). An aliquot was transferred to an aggregation assay cuvette(More)
BACKGROUND Although keratin hydrolysates have become established as standard components in hair and nail cosmetics, studies on the moisturizing effects of keratin hydrolysates do not appear among contemporary literature. OBJECTIVES To test if adding keratin hydrolysate into an ointment base increases hydration of the skin and improves skin barrier(More)
