To determine whether beta 1- and beta 2-adrenoceptors have similar functions in salivary glands, Sprague-Dawley rats were chronically treated with either the beta 1-selective (prenalterol), beta 2-selective (terbutaline), or the nonselective beta-agonist isoproterenol. All three agonists increased parotid and submandibular gland weight and acinar cell size.(More)
Fifty untreated diabetic animals were compared with 58 age-matched non-diabetic controls. Reduced salivary gland weight was evident after one month's diabetes and this was unchanged after 12 months of diabetes. Submandibular/sublingual gland weight was proportional to the reduced body weight in the diabetic rats. Parotid gland weight, however, was(More)
Beginning in the mid-eighteenth century England started to change its system of raising revenues from tax-farming and the granting of monopolies to direct collection within the government administration. As a result, the English public finances dramatically improved and corruption was reduced both compared to the old system and compared to its major(More)
Economists and politicians in Sweden stated in the early 1990s that devaluations of the country’s currency had lessened the external pressure on manufacturing and led to a delay in structural change and rationalizations. The theory of transformation pressure generalizes the idea that productivity growth in firms is promoted by intense competition, cost(More)
Peripheral β-adrenoceptor reactivity, measured as the dermal erythematous reaction to iontophoretically administered isoprenaline was studied in 41 asthmatics, 13 patients with allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and 21 healthy control subjects. The response of intact superficial dermal blood vessels to isoprenaline, which has previously been demonstrated to be β(More)
