The proliferation of wireless communication technologies has raised public concern regarding potential health effects of radiofrequency (RF) exposures. This is the first report of findings from a large-cohort mortality study among employees of Motorola, a manufacturer of wireless communication products. We examined all major causes of mortality, with brain(More)
We measured mortality rates in a cohort of 20,508 aerospace workers who were followed up over the period 1950-1993. A total of 4,733 workers had occupational exposure to trichloroethylene. In addition, trichloroethylene was present in some of the washing and drinking water used at the work site. We developed a job-exposure matrix to classify all jobs by(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the effect of intracerebroventricular (icv) and intravenous (iv) infusion of angiotensin (ANG)-(1-7), ANG III, and ANG II on the baroreceptor control of heart rate (BHR) in conscious rats. Reflex changes in HR were elicited by bolus iv injection of either phenylephrine or sodium nitroprusside before and within 1(More)
300 hypertensive children, from newborn to 18 years old,were studied, retrospectively, from 1975 to 1992, 105 from those lost for follow-up. In 244 the diagnosis of the primary disease, predominantly glomerulopathy, was established. 122 had chronic renal failure (CRF). From them, 74 arrived at end stage renal disease (ESRD) and 13 have been transplanted.(More)
BACKGROUND Flow control during endovascular stroke treatment with stent-retrievers is crucial for successful revascularization. The standard technique recommended by stent-retriever manufacturers implies obstruction of the respective access catheter by the microcatheter, through which the stent-retriever is delivered. This, in turn, results in reduced(More)
To characterize the role of the kallikrein-kinin system in diabetic cardiopathy, we studied the effect of streptozotocin (STZ) on the regulation of the myocardial bradykinin (BK) receptors, the B1 and B2 type, and two tissue kallikrein genes, rat kallikrein 1 (rKLK1) and rKLK7, in severely hyperglycemic rats. Experiments were performed in STZ-induced(More)
OBJECTIVES Interventions such as balloon angioplasty can cause vascular injury leading to platelet activation, thrombus formation, and inflammatory response. This induces vascular smooth muscle cell activation and subsequent re-endothelialization with expression of αvβ3-integrin by endothelial cells and vascular smooth muscle cell. Thus,(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal interaction between stent struts and thrombus is crucial for successful revascularization in endovascular stroke therapy with stent retrievers. Deploying the stent retriever by actively pushing it into the thrombus increases the radial force with which the stent struts expand into the thrombus. OBJECTIVE To examine the active push(More)
Minipigs are frequently used in (neuro-)interventional research. Longitudinal experiments may require repeated vessel access via the femoral artery. Anticoagulation and incompliance of the animals necessitates the use of a vascular closure device (VCD). The effects of the Angio-Seal VCD in minipigs were longitudinally assessed. Minipig (42±8.4 kg body(More)
