[digitalization for acute myocardial infarction: haemodynamic changes in patients with heart failure at rest (author's transl)].haemodynamic changes after intravenous administration of 0.4 mg beta-methyldigoxin or 0.4 mg digoxin daily were measured on the first to fourth day in 42 patients in heart failure after onset of transmural myocardial infarction. regular reduction in filling pressure and increased stroke volume while arterial blood pressure remained unaltered pointed to improved contractility. digitalization in the first few days after infarction achieved sustained tendency towards improved haemodynamics. it is c ...20051183355
retinoid stimulation of epidermal differentiation in vivo.retinoids are potent inducers of epidermal hyperplasia in vivo. epidermal transglutaminase activity and stratum corneum turnover were examined in all-trans-retinoic acid and arotinoid ethyl ester treated hairless mice, to evaluate the possible contribution of decreased epidermal cell loss to the induction of hyperplasia by retinoids. stratum corneum turnover was enhanced, and the absolute amounts (activity/cm2), but not the specific activities, of soluble and particulate transglutaminase increas ...20102871471

albumin excretion rate is not increased in atherosclerotic patients with peripheral vascular disease.in type i diabetic patients, microalbuminuria is considered predictive of nephropathy and has been found associated with an increased mobility and mortality for atherosclerosis. an association between microalbuminuria and atherosclerosis has been reported in non diabetic atherosclerotic patients with hypertension. the aim of this study is to evaluate whether albumin excretion rate (aer) is increased in a selected group of normotensive patients with documented peripheral atherosclerotic disease. ...20071821046

treatment of malignant leydig cell tumor.malignant leydig cell tumors (lct) are rare. only 32 cases of malignant lct (as evidenced by metastatic spread) were reported. generally metastatic spread occurs within 2 years of the primary lct, and the patient dies within 2 years of the discovery of metastatic disease. the tumor is highly resistant to both radiation and chemotherapy. it also has a great propensity for recurring after surgical resection. a case is reported of a patient whose metastatic disease occurred 8 years after his primar ...20071913469
risk of cancer from the use of tar bitumen in road works.tar bitumens are increasingly being used as a binder in road works. they consist of a standard product of about 70% bitumen and 25-30% tar. tar bitumens are classifiable as the pyrolysis products of organic materials and are applied hot. depending on the temperature used there are emissions of various intensities of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (pah), some of which are carcinogenic. a total of 250 one hour air samples was taken at breathing height on 20 days at 11 road works sites. the regio ...20102920140

mesothelioma of spermatic cord: electron microscopic and histochemical characteristics of its mucopolysaccharides.a mesothelioma of the spermatic cord occurred at the site of multiple hernial repairs. the aggressive biologic behavior of this tumor is exhibited by its early lymph node invasion and extensive metastases to the pleural cavities, lungs, and spleen. these tumor cells contained a large amount of stable of stable glycogen-like carbohydrate insoluble in formalin and tolerating postmortem changes. electron microscopy revealed features similar to those mesotheliomas arising from body cavities.2002135395

effects of beta-casomorphin derivatives on gastrointestinal transit in mice.some d-amino acid-substituted derivatives of beta-casomorphin (cm) were found to exhibit a special affinity to central opiate receptors. concerning their affinity to peripheral opiate receptors our knowledge is still limited. the results of our experiments indicate that cm derivatives interfere with peripheral opiate receptors and that there is a close connection with the affinity to different subtypes of this receptor.20071965564

effects on body temperature in mice differentiate between dopamine d2 receptor agonists with high and low efficacies.the effects of different dopamine (da) d2 receptor agonists and the da d2 receptor antagonist, emonapride, on body temperature were studied in male mice. the aim of the study was to test whether da d2 receptor agonists ranging from full agonists to agonists with low efficacy could be differentiated by means of their effect on body temperature. talipexole induced a marked hypothermia (maximum decrease of 6.5 degrees c). apomorphine, quinelorane, (+)-4-propyl-9-hydroxy-naphtoxazine((+)-phno), and ...20061352251
methylene blue: a reliable and practical marker for validating compliance on the dst.assurance of compliance (ingestion of dexamethasone) is crucial for interpreting plasma cortisol results on the dst. in this double-blind study of 13 subjects, methylene blue (mb) 50 mg was combined with dexamethasone 1 mg in single capsules, and the resulting blue-green urinary color after ingestion was found to reliably validate compliance in 100% of patients and controls. the addition of mb did not influence dst results (i.e., plasma cortisol, plasma dexamethasone). adding mb to dexamethasone ...20123294814

separation of creatine kinase isoenzymes in serum by ion-exchange column chromatography (mercer's method, modified to increase sensitivity).we describe our experience with mercer's method [clin. chem. 20, 36 (1974)] for separating isoenzymes of creatine kinase (ec 2.7.3.2) in serum by ion-exchange chromatography. by using diethylaminoethyl cellulose rather than diethylaminoethyl sephadex in the column and by changing the ionic strength of the eluting buffer, we could detect a significant proportion of the mb isoenzyme of serum creatine kinase at normal activities of creatine kinase in serum, even in the absence of cardiac disease.20051112049
rapid analysis of the central nervous system stimulants, amphetamines, via gas chromatography-mass spectrometry: rapid acylation in the presence of a mercury catalyst.a simple, direct, instantaneous, and quantitative acetylating procedure for amphetamines has been developed. the method uses trifluoroacetic anhydride in the presence of mercuric trifluoroacetate as a catalyst. the product was characterized by a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry system. the salient features of this technique are: (a) rapidity of analysis; (b) no previous cleanup to remove adulterants; and (c) detection of amphetamines at the picomole level. we have routinely applied this tech ...20051149413
