Measurement of bioactive parathyroid hormone (PTH) is essential for optimal management of bone abnormalities in dialysis patients. This can be accomplished by PTH measurements using third-generation PTH assays, which detect more or less of the first six amino acids of the PTH structure. Such assays do not detect non-(1-84) PTH fragments, such as human PTH(More)
Previous studies showed that long-term hypoxia (LTH) during pregnancy alters myometrial contractility. The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that LTH during pregnancy suppresses myometrial contractility in sheep by affecting the calcium signaling cascade. Pregnant sheep were maintained at high altitude (3820 m) from Day 30 to Day 139 of(More)
We conducted a comparative study on a daily single versus a divided dose of G-CSF for G-CSF-induced mobilization of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) in eleven HLA-identical sibling donors of allogeneic PBSC transplantation (PBSCT). Six donors received double subcutaneous injections of G-CSF at a dose of 5 micrograms/kg x 2/day for 5 days (Group A), while(More)
