Brief renal ischemia-reperfusion is reported to precondition the myocardium; however, the underlying mechanisms are unknown. This phenomenon was, therefore, investigated using an in vivo rabbit model of acute myocardial infarction. Characterization of the mechanisms involved was performed using the nonselective adenosine receptor antagonist(More)
Preconditioning of the myocardium rapidly induces a number of transcription factors, which are likely to be responsible for a cascade of transcriptional changes underlying the development of delayed adaptation. Identifying these changes provides insight into the molecular pathways elicited by sub-lethal ischaemia and the mechanism leading to delayed(More)
Background The Build, Educate, Advance, Transition, in Sickle cell disease (BEATS) music therapy program was developed to address health challenges faced by adolescents/young adults (AYA) with sickle cell disease (SCD) during the transition to adult medical care. Objective The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of BEATS on self-efficacy,(More)
