To determine whether exercise increases endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in patients with peripheral vascular disease, we developed a multi-parameter flow cytometry assay to rigorously assess EPCs and mature endothelial cells (ECs) in control subjects and patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) subjected to graded exercise. Blood was collected from(More)
BACKGROUND Age and cardiovascular disease status appear to alter numbers and function of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). Despite no universal phenotypic definition, numerous studies have implicated progenitors with apparent endothelial potential in local responses to vascular injury and with cardiovascular disease in general.

AIM The feasibility of administering native glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) as GLP-1 Technosphere Inhalation Powder for diabetes therapy has been demonstrated in a rat model. METHODS GLP-1 Technosphere Inhalation Powders containing 5, 10 and 15% GLP-1 were prepared and administered to healthy female Sprague-Dawley rats and to male Zucker diabetic obese(More)
BACKGROUND ROSE-010, a Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) analog, reduces gastrointestinal motility and relieves acute pain in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The rat small bowel migrating myoelectric complex (MMC) is a reliable model of pharmacological effects on gastrointestinal motility. Accordingly, we investigated whether ROSE-010 works(More)
