Bubble formation and platelet activation are major factors contributing to decompression sickness. We hypothesized that pretreatment with hyperbaric oxygen immediately before a dive may reduce bubble formation and platelet activation in humans. Five healthy volunteer subjects (1 female and 4 males; age, 33.6±2.9 years; height, 170±3 cm; weight, 71±8 kg,(More)
BACKGROUND We previously demonstrated that i.v. emulsified isoflurane induces general anaesthesia in animals. In this study, we compared the pharmacokinetics of emulsified isoflurane given as i.v. bolus and as infusion in beagle dogs. METHODS Sixteen beagle dogs were assigned randomly to a bolus group comprising three subgroups and an infusion group. The(More)
Platelet activation has been suggested to play an important role in the pathogenesis of prethrombotic states and thus may be responsible for decompression illness during compressed air (scuba) diving. To investigate the effect of physical, mental, and environmental stress on platelet activation during immersion in ice-cold water, we examined 10 male(More)
Twenty-six strains of Aspergillus fumigatus were screened for toxigenicity for fumitremorgins A and B. Twenty-three of 26 strains can produce fumitremorgin B in rice medium determined by TLC and HPLC, and no fumitremorgin A was detected. The strains of no. C4104 and no. 3656 were inoculated onto 5 kg of rice media and incubated in a modified procedure.(More)
The authors compared the results of dipyridamole myocardial-SPECT (D-ECT) with dipyridamole electrocardiogram (D-ECG) in detecting coronary artery disease (CAD). According to the result of coronary artery angiogram. We analysed the results of D-ECT and D-ECG in 62 patients. In detecting CAD, the sensitivity and specificity of D-ECT were 89%, and 92%, while(More)
We present a 27-year-old male with multiple organ dysfunction caused by parathyroid adenoma-induced primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Initially, the patient experienced a sudden onset of gastrointestinal symptoms, polyuria, polydipsia, bone pain, renal dysfunction, nephrolithiasis, and acute pancreatitis, symptoms associated with hypercalcemia.(More)
A method for the preparation and identification of fumitremorgin B-hemisuccinate-carrier protein is described. The overall yield of the fumitremorgin B-hemisuccinate (FTBS) after final purification was 78.6%. The FTBS was characterized by UV, IR, EIMS, element analysis, and 1H, 13C NMR. IR was also used to determine the formation of complete antigen(More)
