We previously reported that whereas systemic continuous infusion of parathyroid hormone (PTH) accelerated orthodontic tooth movement, systemic but intermittent injection of PTH did not increase the rate of tooth movement. Analysis of these data suggested that continuous administration of PTH could be applicable for orthodontic therapy. In the present study,… (More)
Since pulmonary vasculature is complex in terms of regional difference in structure and function, it is important to understand the site of endothelin (ET) synthesis and the distribution of the ET system along the axial pathways of pulmonary artery. The expression of big ET-1, ET converting enzyme (ECE) and ET(A) receptors were examined in rat pulmonary… (More)
Late Gadolinium Enhancement (LGE) has been shown to be a poor prognostic indicator in LV failure. However , it has not been studied in predicting adverse prognosis in Pulmonary Hypertension (PH). Herein we show that LGE enhancement predicts major adverse clinical events (MACE) in PH patients.
