AIMS In symptomatic patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD), computed tomographic angiography (CTA) improves patient selection for invasive coronary angiography (ICA) compared with functional testing. The impact of measuring fractional flow reserve by CTA (FFRCT) is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS At 11 sites, 584 patients with new onset chest(More)
OBJECTIVE Pentachlorophenol, a fungicide widely used as a wood preservative, was classified in 1999 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as a possible human carcinogen. We reviewed currently available data to determine the extent to which recent studies assist in distinguishing the effect of pentachlorophenol from that of its contaminants(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of a pre-operative education programme on length of hospital stay after surgery for primary and revision knee arthroplasty patients. The programme was introduced at our hospital in October 2006 to encourage patients to play an active role in their recovery process after surgery. PATIENTS AND(More)
In an earlier study using maize seedlings grown from kernels inoculated with Fusarium verticillioides, fumonisin B(1) (FB(1)) was preferentially accumulated in leaf tissue compared to FB(2) and FB(3). The present study tested whether maize seedlings preferentially translocate FB(1) when plants are watered with FB(1) and/or FB(2), without the fungus present.(More)
Thapsigargin (TG) is a sesquiterpen lactone that inhibits the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) calcium ATPases to disrupt calcium homeostasis and consequently induces ER stress. We have previously reported that TG induces apoptosis by engaging the death receptor 5 (DR5) and the intrinsic pathways. Second mitochondrial-derived activator (Smac) is an important(More)
Rab monomeric GTPases regulate specific aspects of vesicle transport in eukaryotes including coat recruitment, uncoating, fission, motility, target selection and fusion. Moreover, individual Rab proteins function at specific sites within the cell, for example the ER, golgi and early endosome. Importantly, the localization and function of individual Rab(More)
