Perindopril augments ecto-ATP diphosphohydrolase activity and enhances endothelial anti-platelet function in human umbilical vein endothelial cells
Objectives Recent clinical trials have demonstrated that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) reduce thrombotic events by unknown mechanisms in patients with atheroscleroticExpand

Effect of dipyridamole on QT dispersion in vasospastic angina pectoris.
Life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias have frequently been documented in patients with vasospastic angina. Moreover, the incidence of ventricular arrhythmias has been closely associated withExpand

P-selectin expression, but not GPIIb/IIIa activation, is enhanced in the inflammatory stage of Takayasu's arteritis.
BACKGROUND Inflammation and thrombosis are closely related processes, but the association between disease activity and thrombogenicity in Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is poorly understood. ToExpand

Genomic Analysis of Two Siblings with 17.ALPHA.-Hydroxylase Deficiency and Hypertension.
17α-hydroxylase/17, 20-lyase deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder, which causes mineralcorticoid hypertension. Here we report two Japanese siblings, male and female, affected by 17α-Expand

Opening of K(ATP) channel attenuates the increase in QT dispersion produced by the first balloon inflation during coronary angioplasty.
Increased QT dispersion predicts the occurrence of lethal ventricular arrhythmias complicating percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Moreover, these arrhythmias occur more frequentlyExpand

Fabrication of dense yttrium oxyfluoride ceramics by hot pressing and their mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties
Excellent corrosion-resistant materials have been strongly required to reduce particle contamination during the plasma process in semiconductor production. Yttrium oxyfluoride can be a candidate asExpand

Increased QTc dispersion predicts lethal ventricular arrhythmias complicating coronary angioplasty.
This study found that increased QT dispersion just before angioplasty is an useful marker to predict the risk for lethal ventricular arrhythmias during angioplasty. The fact that successful coronaryExpand

Protective Effects of Iloprost Against Thromboxane-Induced Myocardial Infarction
The discovery of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) and prostacyclin, and the elucidation of their physiologic roles have brought new insights into atherogenesis and thrombogenesis [1–3]. In particular, the rolesExpand
