RATIONALE The acute respiratory distress syndrome is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Angiopoietin-1 (Ang-1), a ligand for the endothelial Tie2 receptor, is an endothelial survival and vascular stabilization factor that reduces endothelial permeability and inhibits leukocyte-endothelium interactions. OBJECTIVES We(More)
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterized by widespread loss of pulmonary microvasculature. Therefore we hypothesized that angiogenic gene therapy would reverse established PAH, in part restoring the lung microcirculation. Three weeks after monocrotaline (MCT) treatment, Fisher 344 rats were randomized to receive a total of either 1.5 x 10(6)(More)
OBJECTIVES Hemorrhagic shock followed by resuscitation (HSR) commonly triggers an inflammatory response that leads to acute respiratory distress syndrome. HYPOTHESIS HSR exacerbates mechanical stress-induced lung injury by rendering the lung more susceptible to ventilator-induced lung injury. METHODS Rats were subjected to HSR, and were randomized into(More)
We introduce SkyNetz, a playful interactive robotics simulator for computer science students. Its focus lies on the visualization of a probabilistic robot localization algorithm considering noise in the sensors and actuators of the robot on the one hand, as well as an environment filled with obstacles which damage the robot on contact on the other hand.
