Superoxide anion is produced in human platelets predominantly by Nox2-dependent NADPH oxidases. In vitro experiments have shown that it might play a role in modulating platelet functions. The relationship between platelet superoxide production and aggregation remains poorly defined. Accordingly, we aimed to study superoxide production and aggregation in(More)
The antithrombotic effect of dipyridamole is through phosphodiesterase inhibition and depends on stimulation of platelet cyclic A.M.P. by circulating prostacyclin in the bloodstream. Low doses of aspirin selectively inhibit platelet cyclooxygenase and potentiate the antithrombotic effects of dipyridamole and theophylline. High doses of aspirin also prevent(More)
Third-stage larvae of the anisakid nematode Contracaecum osculatum were recovered from livers of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) caught in the Baltic Sea (June 2014) and used for experimental infection of two pigs (one male and one female). Each pig received 215 larvae by oral infection (feeding with minced cod liver containing live nematode larvae). Pigs were(More)
Recent evidence shows that the renin-angiotensin system is a crucial player in atherosclerotic processes. It was also proved that Ang II promotes atherogenesis. Angiotensin-(1-7) [Ang-(1-7)] opposites Ang II action. Therefore, we would like to find out whether Ang-(1-7) receptor agonist: AVE 0991, could ameliorate atherosclerosis progression in an(More)
Immersion-vaccines (bacterins) are routinely used for aquacultured rainbow trout to protect against Yersinia ruckeri (Yr). During immersion vaccination, rainbow trout take up and process the antigens, which induce protection. The zebrafish was used as a model organism to study uptake mechanisms and subsequent antigen transport in fish. A genetically(More)
Activation of both poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS-2) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of various forms of inflammation, therefore compounds which may simultaneously inhibit both pathways are of potential therapeutic interest. We tested the influence of potent inhibitor of PARP, 1, 5-isoquinolinediol(More)
