Borderline hypertensive rats (BHR) were used to test the hypothesis that baroreflex resetting prevents a fall in blood pressure (BP) when cardiac output (CO) is reduced during air-jet stress. Eight-week-old BHR were instrumented with flow probes around the ascending aorta for measuring CO, femoral and jugular catheters were inserted for measurement of(More)
OBJECTIVE Daily exposure to air-jet stress (AJS) causes sustained elevations of blood pressure in borderline hypertensive rats (BHR). It is known that the renin-angiotensin system is activated during episodes of behavioral stress, and the purpose of this study was to assess the involvement of renin-angiotensin system in the development of stress-induced(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic alcohol consumption is a major risk factor for hypertension. There is evidence in humans that the susceptibility to alcohol-related hypertension may vary based on genotype. As a first step in investigating the genetic basis for alcohol-related hypertension, the current study was designed to assess the heritability of the blood pressure(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between computed tomography (CT) images and the pathological observations of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients with peritoneal, omental and mesenteric involvement. In total, 26 patients suffering from an NHL with peritoneal, omental or mesenteric involvement were reviewed retrospectively, and(More)
