BACKGROUND/AIMS Increased susceptibility of the kidney to acute renal failure (ARF) in the setting of sepsis even in the absence of systemic hypotension is well known. In the hypothesis that the proinflammatory cytokines and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in gram-negative sepsis can directly cause renal tubular cell apoptosis via Fas- and caspase-mediated(More)
PURPOSE To compare visual quality and quantitative measurements of multislice (MS) breath-hold and 3D respiratory-triggered T1 ρ sequences. MATERIALS AND METHODS T1 ρ scans including MS BLOCK T1 ρ, MS HS8 T1 ρ, and 3D BLOCK T1 ρ were performed on 40 healthy volunteers and 17 liver cirrhosis patients on 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The MS(More)
BACKGROUND Apoptosis frequently occurs in acute renal injury but the molecular mechanisms responsible for this distinct form of cell death are largely unknown. Fas belongs to the tumour necrosis factor (TNF)/nerve growth factor superfamily and engagement by Fas ligand induces apoptosis in various epithelial cells. To investigate the role of apoptosis and(More)
