Elevated calcium and protein concentration are a consistent abnormality in submaxillary saliva from patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and from experimental animal models developed by the chronic administration of either isoproterenol (IPR) or reserpine. The possibility that the effects of the two drugs may be additive was investigated by assessing their(More)
Alterations in the pancreatic secretion of fluid and of enzymes in response to either pilocarpine (15 mg/kg) or an octapeptide of cholecystokinin (0.1 microgram/kg) have been found in rats that received daily injections of reserpine (0.5 mg/kg) for 7 days. During a 3-hr secretory period, significant reductions in the volume of pancreatic juice and in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To investigate if the Injury Severity Score (ISS) and the Abbreviated Injury Score (AIS) are correlated with the long-term quality of life in severe trauma patients. METHODS Patients injured from 2005 to 2007 with an ISS≥15 were surveyed 16-24 months after injury. The Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ-DI) was used for(More)
Hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) circumvents a disfavored Friedel-Crafts reaction in the derivatization of the inexpensive monoterpene isopulegol. A variety of readily prepared aryl and heteroaryl sulfonates undergo a formal hydroarylation to form 8-arylmenthols, privileged scaffolds for asymmetric synthesis, as typified by 8-phenylmenthol. High(More)
