Obesity increases prostanoid-mediated vasoconstriction and vascular thromboxane receptor gene expression
Objectives Vasoconstrictor prostanoids have been implicated in abnormal vasomotion in atherosclerosis and hypertension. Method Using lean and diet-induced obese mice, we investigated whether obesity… Expand

BACKGROUND Fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEEs) are cytotoxic nonoxidative ethanol metabolites produced by esterification of fatty acids and ethanol. FAEEs are detectable in blood up to 24 h after ethanol… Expand
TREATMENT OF RENOVASCULAR HYPERTENSION WITH PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL DILATATION OF A RENAL-ARTERY STENOSIS
Percutaneous transluminal dilatation of a left-sided renal-artery stenosis was done in a 61-year-old patient with hypertension. Shortly after dilatation blood-pressure fell to normal and renal plasma… Expand
Twenty-four-hour secretory pattern of cortisol in the bull: evidence of episodic secretion and circadian rhythm.

A single antibody RIA method for measurement of plasma cortisol concentrations in the bull is described. Antisera were obtained from rabbits immunized against cortisol-3-oxime-bovine serum albumin.… Expand
In-vivo interaction of nitric oxide and endothelin.
In a recent issue of the journal, Hocher et al.  described the effects of acute, non-isoform selective systemic inhibition of NO synthase (NOS) on blood pressure and NO metabolite excretion in… Expand

Human platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is mainly composed of two polypeptide chains (PDGF-AB). All three possible dimeric forms of PDGF--i.e., PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB and PDGF-AB--exist in nature. We… Expand
Effects of alcohol on energy metabolism and body weight regulation: is alcohol a risk factor for obesity?
Some studies have suggested that drinking in moderation may be beneficial for health, but many of these studies do not address body weight. Evidence suggests that consuming moderate amounts of… Expand
Changes in arterial and transcutaneous oxygen and carbon dioxide tensions during and after voluntary hyperventilation.

- Respiration; international review of thoracic…
The purposes of our study were (1) to investigate whether a 3-min short-term hyperventilation leads to posthyperventilatory hypoxemia and (2) to assess the role of transcutaneous blood gas… Expand
Long-term experience in percutaneous transluminal dilatation of renal artery stenosis.

- The American journal of medicine
- 1 December 1985
Percutaneous transluminal dilatation was attempted in 65 patients with renovascular hypertension. In five cases (8 percent), percutaneous transluminal dilatation could not be performed for technical… Expand
