A single base pair insertion/deletion (4G/SG) promoter polymorphism in the plasminogen-activator-inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) gene is thought to play a part in prognosis after severe trauma. We investigated the relation between outcome of severe trauma, PAI-1 concentrations, and PAP-1 genotype in 61 patients who had been severely injured. 11 (58%) of 19 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the frequency of several lymphocyte subsets, circulating cytokines, and prostaglandin plasma values at their time course over a period of 14 days in severely injured trauma patients in relation to the development of sepsis and multiple organ failure (MOF). DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING An operative intensive care unit (ICU) of a(More)
We have assessed whether oxygen-derived free radicals produced by xanthine oxidase may be an important trigger mechanism in the genesis of reperfusion-induced arrhythmias. We have examined (i) the effects of inhibition of xanthine oxidase by both folic acid solution and amflutizole; (ii) the effects of the inhibitor of xanthine dehydrogenase to xanthine(More)
The objective of the study was to evaluate the utility of NV1042, a replication competent, oncolytic herpes simplex virus (HSV) containing the interleukin-12 (IL-12) gene, as primary treatment for hepatic tumors and to further assess its ability to reduce tumor recurrence following resection. Resection is the most effective therapy for hepatic malignancies,(More)
The reticular thalamic nucleus (RTN) is located between cerebral cortex, motor thalamus and the basal ganglia and thought to be implicated in the inhibitory-mediated regulation of motor control. Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative motor disorder caused by the significant degenerative loss of dopamine neurons from the substantia nigra pars compacta.(More)
