Short-term or chronic administration of rhRLX to conscious female rats that reaches serum concentrations of approximately 80 ng/mL results in minimal and insignificant changes. Phthalate esters were reported to damage fetal and postnatal testes of experimental animals, but the molecular mechanisms underlying these effects remain unknown.

Immunoglobulin phenotype in 164 B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemias: is there a relationship with initial clinical stage and survival? The simulation results for the equimolar mixtures show that the pressure at which maximum separation is attained is a very sensitive function of the diameter of the nanotubes present in the bundles.

Rs3761389 polymorphism in autoimmune regulator (AIRE) gene is associated with susceptibility of myasthenia gravis in Chinese patients. On theoretical grounds, we suggest that canalization of auxin flux between an auxin source and an auxin sink may involve facilitated diffusion rather than polar transport.

The present study aimed to assess the effect of haplotype variation in angiotensin II type I receptor (AGTR1) gene on the risk of myocardial infarction (MI) in Chinese males.

To observe the anti-liver fibrosis effect of Astragalus complanatus flavonoids (ACF) in rats.

Clear cell odontogenic carcinoma (CCOC) is a rare, potentially aggressive odontogenic epithelial tumor with tendency for recurrence. These results suggest that the variability of cardiovascular functions associated with inhalation of petroleum products is in attendant to baroreflex sensitivity and resetting of arterial pressure. Compared with M1-occlusions, there was a greater chance for a good angiographic and clinical result in our case series. Three-dimensional eye-movement responses to off-vertical axis rotations in humans. Documentation of decreased adrenergic receptors in left heart failure complicating aortic coarctation in infancy. The development of selective orexin receptor antagonists will be crucial in establishing a role for this family of novel peptides in the mechanisms underlying ischaemic cell death.

We investigated the hypotensive and diuretic effects of diltiazem and hydralazine in conscious, spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and their counterpart, Wistar Kyoto rats (WKY). The results showed that GM-CSF stimulated leukemic blast colony formation in all cases examined, whereas G-CSF stimulated colony formation in four of the eight cases. The technique is also applied to experimental data from a PENN-PET scanner to test its practicality. The problem of abuse of and addiction to opioid analgesics has emerged as a major issue for the United States in the past decade and has worsened over the past few years. Bcl-3 interacted with NF-kappaB p50 and was recruited to the TNF-alpha promoter, but not the IL-6 promoter, indicating that Bcl-3 facilitates p50-mediated inhibition of TNF-alpha expression. The possibility of Kupffer cell self-renewal in the intact organism is also discussed.
