BACKGROUND Heart failure is commonly associated with vascular disease and a high rate of athero-thrombotic events, but the risks and benefits of antithrombotic therapy are unknown. METHODS The current study was an open-label, randomized, controlled trial comparing no antithrombotic therapy, aspirin (300 mg/day), and warfarin (target international(More)
The pituitary of roach, Rutilus rutilus (L.), is pear-shaped and situated in the sella turcica. It is characterised by a large pars nervosa, which penetrates deep into the other regions, splitting the proximal pars distalis. Spatial localisation of nerve fibre types and glandular cell types occurs. Using a variety of staining techniques six glandular cell(More)
Selectivity to visual stimulus orientation is a basic cortical functional property believed to be crucial for normal vision. Maturation of this neuronal property requires neural activity. Still, it is unclear what might be the molecular basis for such activity-dependent processes and whether activity has an instructive or permissive role in development of(More)
Although hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction is a well-recognized physiological phenomenon it is unusual to observe and assess its efficiency in clinical practice. Here, we report the case of a 50-year-old female who presented with unilateral incomplete bronchial occlusion due to a carcinoid tumor involving the left main bronchus in the absence of(More)
A new combined stain is described for the study of cell types in the fish pituitary. Tissues are prepared by fixing in formol-sublimate and then embedded in paraffin wax. Tissue is sectioned at 5 micron and than stained sequentially with performic acid-alcian blue, periodic acid-Schiff, orange G, and acid fuchsin. As a result of this procedure acidophils(More)
This paper proposes a low-cost, compact, flexible passive chipless RFID tag that has been designed and analyzed. The tag is a bowtie-shaped resonator based structure with 36 slots; where each patch is loaded with 18 slots. The tag is set in a way that each slot in a patch corresponds to a metal gap in the other patch. Hence there is no mutual interference,(More)
