The significance of neopterin determination as a tumour marker in ovarian cancer.
The neopterin level of 164 urine samples of ovarian cancer patients was determined by high pressure liquid chromatography. Parallelly, the serum levels of CA 125, CEA and of lipid bound sialic acidExpand

Cardiovascular response to dopamine in hypotensive preterm neonates with severe hyaline membrane disease
The effect of low dose (2, 4, and 8 μg/kg per min) dopamine infusion on blood pressure, heart rate and renal function was studied in 18 hypotensive, preterm infants with severe hyaline membraneExpand

Effect of low-dose dopamine infusion on prolactin and thyrotropin secretion in preterm infants with hyaline membrane disease.
The effect of low-dose (2-4 micrograms/kg/min) and long-term (greater than or equal to 46 h) dopamine infusion on serum prolactin and thyrotropin concentrations was investigated in 8 preterm infantsExpand
