  • Postprandial hypertriglyceridaemia and elevated LDL levels are risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis [5,21]. Methyl-GBB treatment induced decrease in TG concentration, thus, the decrease of TG concentration could contribute the attenuation of development of atherosclerosis. The administration of methyl-GBB also decreased the…[Read more]

  • 2. Related WorkIn Aquino-Santos et al. (2010), authors presented a performance analysis of an enhanced version of the Topological Multicast Routing Algorithm (ToMuRo). It included undecided border nodes. The undecided border nodes were used to forward multicast packets to optimize the path discovery process. It was done by choosing undecided…[Read more]

  • Nanoparticle biosynthesis arises through intracellular and extracellular pathways by a variety of microorganisms [23]. Generally, synthesis of nanoparticles is considered to be a result of exposure to toxic substances by secreting extracellular substances to capture the material or mediated through electrostatic interactions [18]. Alternatively,…[Read more]

  • 1. IntroductionOcular diseases directly affect human vision and quality of life. A survey from 39 countries estimated that 285 million people suffer visual impairment. Of these, 65% are over 50 years old, and 82% of blind patients are over 501. Significant achievements have been made in the discovery of ocular pathological mechanisms and…[Read more]

  • Our study showed that the excursion and peak motion speed of the left mpges-1 inhibitors are significantly greater and faster than those of the right. With regard to the excursion, the results of our study are consistent with those of previous reports using fluoroscopy in a standing position 2 ;  3. However, in the previous studies evaluating…[Read more]

  • ConclusionAs compared to INS MID alone, its administration in combination with DXM resulted in a desirable depth of sedation/immobilization in pigeons such as to enable the maintenance of dorsal recumbency. No adverse effects on HR, fR and CT were observed after MID, but there was excitation during recovery, However the use of INS MID alone at the…[Read more]

  • It is known, that the arterial pulse is amplified as it moves toward the periphery due to wave reflection and the arterial tree. This amplification is characterized by an increased SAP (Muir et al. 1983; Bedford & Shah 1995) and might partly explain the influence of position of the intraarterial catheter (e.g. leg or facial artery) on the invasive…[Read more]

  • Multiple linear regression analysis using all variables as factors (Model 1) demonstrated that weight, BMI, and tidal volume were independently associated with the bilateral excursion of the diaphragms (all P < 0.05) after adjusting for other clinical variables, including age, gender, smoking history, height, VC, %VC, FEV1, FEV1%, and %FEV1. There…[Read more]
