We gave increasing doses of metoprolol intravenously to seven subjects with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who were also receiving their usual bronchodilators. Six of the seven tolerated up to 0.2mg/kg metoprolol without adverse effects, although there were declines in forced expiratory volume in 1 sec (FEV1). At 0.15 mg/kg mean FEV1(More)
PURPOSE Gram-negative bacterial infections of the eye can lead to corneal bacterial keratitis, visual impairment, and blindness. Many of these pathologic changes may be mediated by bacterially derived products such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS). In this investigation, it has been established for the first time that human corneal cells are capable of(More)
We evaluated the effects of oral metoprolol, 200 mg daily, on cardiac and pulmonary function in 6 patients with chronic reversible airways obstruction and no cardiac dysfunction. The patients were clinically stable. In all patients, baseline forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) was less than 60% predicted, and increased at least 15% after(More)
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM T cells have been shown to play a role in the etiopathogenesis of periodontal disease. B7-H3, a costimulatory molecule, is found to be associated with regulation of T cell function in some tumoral tissues, as well as autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of B7-H3(More)
BACKGROUND The increasingly frequent use of contrast enhanced imaging for diagnosis or interventions in patients with CAD has generated concern about avoidance of contrast induced nephropathy (CIN). Reactive oxygen species have been shown to cause CIN. OBJECTIVES Angiographic contrasts worsen the renal function in patients with renal failure. We studied(More)
