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 obesityExpand

Preanalytical variables affecting the quantification of fatty acid ethyl esters in plasma and serum samples.
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 ethanolExpand

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 plasmaExpand

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. [1] described the effects of acute, non-isoform selective systemic inhibition of NO synthase (NOS) on blood pressure and NO metabolite excretion inExpand

Ca2+-channel blockers inhibit the action of recombinant platelet-derived growth factor in vascular smooth muscle cells.
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. WeExpand

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 ofExpand

Changes in arterial and transcutaneous oxygen and carbon dioxide tensions during and after voluntary hyperventilation.
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 gasExpand

Long-term experience in percutaneous transluminal dilatation of renal artery stenosis.
Percutaneous transluminal dilatation was attempted in 65 patients with renovascular hypertension. In five cases (8 percent), percutaneous transluminal dilatation could not be performed for technicalExpand
