A total of 31 healthy volunteers [39 +/- 7 (SD) years] and 18 untreated essential hypertensive subjects [43 +/- 9 years] collected urine for 24 h after a physical examination and laboratory tests. Radioimmunoassay measurements of angiotensin-(1-7) [Ang-(1-7)] in urine and plasma were done as described previously. Sitting systolic and diastolic blood(More)
Long-term adherence or compliance with anti-hypertensive drug therapy is poor. It has been estimated that within the first year of treatment 16-50% of hypertensives discontinue their anti-hypertensive medications. Even among those who remain on therapy long term, missed medication doses are common. Epidemiological studies have shown that drug-treated(More)
The fatty acid spectrum of blood plasma and erythrocytic membrane lipids were studied in 47 patients with lung cancer. The changes in the plasma and erythrocyte fatty acid composition were found to be identical irrespective of the clinical cancer form. In blood plasma of these patients with lung cancer, a decrease in the level of polyunsaturated fatty acids(More)
Graphene grown by high temperature molecular beam epitaxy on hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) forms continuous domains with dimensions of order 20 μm, and exhibits moiré patterns with large periodicities, up to ~30 nm, indicating that the layers are highly strained. Topological defects in the moiré patterns are observed and attributed to the relaxation of(More)

Thin films incorporating GaN, InGaN and AlGaN are presently arousing considerable excitement because of their suitability for UV and visible light-emitting diodes and laser diodes. However, because of the lattice mismatch between presently used substrates and epitaxial nitride thin films, the films are of variable quality In this paper we describe our(More)
This paper describes a program auto-parallelizer that is based on the component approach to constructing optimizing compilers; the parallelizer is included in the technological chain of gcc. Details of using analytical and optimization components for constructing an auto-parallelizer and a parallelization algorithm using the OpenMP library are considered.(More)
Parameters of lipid peroxidation and the levels of calcium ions in blood plasma and exhaled air condensate (EAC) were studied in 47 patients with lung cancer. The changes in EAC turned out to be more specific than those of blood plasma. The level of lipoperoxidation in condensate in cancer patients was lower than in healthy subjects. However, calcium(More)
