cardiogenic oscillations of nitrogen and argon concentration in expired gas in man.1. the cardiogenic oscillations in the concentration of nitrogen and argon in expired gas, which are seen after the inspiration from residual volume of pure oxygen or a bolus of argon, have been studied in normal subjects and in patients with atrial fibrillation. 2. in the upright position of the subject, the peaks of nitrogen and argon concentration coincide with ventricular systole, although there is a transit delay along the tracheobronchial tree before any change of concentration occurs at t ...19751112079
identification of the elementary bodies of chlamydia trachomatis in the electron microscope by an indirect immunoferritin indirect immunoferritin (iif) technique is described for recognizing the elementary bodies (eb) of chlamydia trachomatis in unsectioned preparations. both the eb of a genital strain of c. trachomatis grown in irradiated mccoy cells and eb in clinical specimens obtained from patients attending a venereal disease clinic were identified by the iif test in the electron microscope. cell culture-grown eb were detected by ferritin staining for up to 4 weeks after the organisms had lost their infecti ...19751102559

regulation of spleen growth and portal pressure in hepatic shcistosomiasis.growth rate and histology of splenic autotransplants in subcutaneous pockets were compared with those of autotransplants in the extrahepatic portal bed in splenectomized mice infected with cercariae of schistosoma mansoni and in splenectomized uninfected controls. by the fifteenth week after transplantation (and tenth week after injection of cercariae) subcutaneous transplants gained 6.5 times and omental transplants 8.2 times more weight in infected animals than corresponding transplants in uni ...19751115219
effect of colchicine on collagen, albumin and transferrin synthesis by cirrhotic rat liver slices.collagen synthesis was found to be increased in liver slices of rats made cirrhotic by chronic administration of ccl4. the liver function was impaired, as determined by an increased retention of conjugated bilirubin and low serum albumin values. however, when animals received colchicine simultaneously with ccl4, collagen synthesis and deposition were inhibited, and the liver function appeared normal. when a group of rats was made cirrhotic by chronic administration of ccl4, and then kept for 30 ...19751115789

role of saline consumption in the prevention of deoxycorticosterone hypertension in rats by central 6-hydroxydopamine.1. the mechanism by which pretreatment of rats with intracisternal 6-hydroxydopamine prevents the onset of deoxycorticosterone hypertension has been studied. 2. rats pretreated with central 6-hydroxydopamine increase their consumption of 0-17 mol/l sodium chloride--0-03 mol/l potassium chloride ('saline') less than normal rats when implanted with deoxycorticosterone. 3. intact rats restricted to the equivalent consumption of saline of rats pretreated with 6-hydroxydopamine develop hypertension d ...19751126124
the mechanism of carcinogenic action of 1,2-dimethylhydrazine (sdmh) in rats.the radioactivity level in blood, bile, urine and contents of parts of the gastro-intestinal tract in rats was studied after subcutaneous administration of 3-h-1,2-dimethylhydrazine (3-h-sdmh) which induces colonic tumours. the alkylation of dna, rna and protein in the intestinal mucosa, liver and kidneys was estimated 1 h to 28 days after 3-h-sdmh treatment from the 3-h-incorporation into these macromolecules. administration of 3-h-1,2-diethylhydrazine (3-h-sdeh) which does not induce intestina ...19751140867
gluconeogenesis from alanine in normal postabsorptive man. intrahepatic stimulatory effect of glucagon.although the stimulatory effect of glucagon on gluconeogenesis has been well demonstrated in certain systems in vitro, this effect has never been established in man. the present study was undertaken, therefore, to determine whether glucagon could stimulate gluconeogenesis from alanine in normal fasting man. glucagon might stimulate this process by increasing the hepatic alanine uptake and/or by shunting the extracted alanine within the liver into the gluconeogenic pathway. in order to be able to ...19751140513
