Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Books intended for use in the study of specific subjects, containing systematic presentation of the principles and essential knowledge of the subjects.
A method of studying a drug or procedure in which both the subjects and investigators are kept unaware of who is actually getting which specific treatment.
A type of analysis in which subjects in a study group and a comparison group are made comparable with respect to extraneous factors by individually pairing study subjects with the comparison group subjects (e.g., age-matched controls).
Studies in which a number of subjects are selected from all subjects in a defined population. Conclusions based on sample results may be attributed only to the population sampled.
Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of different levels of nitric oxide inhibition on blood pressure and arterial stiffness in healthy subjects. L-NMMA, an inhibitor of...
The overall goal of this proposal is to determine the autonomic and nitric oxide contribution in the pathogenesis of hypertension and insulin resistance in obese African American women. Fo...
Phase 1 study of the effects of nitric oxide inhibition with L-NMMA in patients with liver cirrhosis and healthy controls. It is hypothesized that nitric oxide availability is increased in...
The study tests the hypothesis that nitric oxide availability is changed in congestive heart failure with regard to the regulation of renal hemodynamics, renal sodium excretion and release...
The joint status (knees, ankles) of patients suffering from severe Hemophilia A (too little blood clotting factor VIII in blood) is evaluated in a single magnetic resonance imaging session...
AbstractIntracoronary infusions of acetylcholine (Ach) and the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibtor levo N-monomethylarginine (L-NMMA) are routinely used to assess endothelial function in the human co...
Background/Aims: Arterial wave reflection, measured as augmentation index (AIx), and central pulse pressure (PP) closely predict cardiovascular events. We hypothesized that basal nitric oxide (NO) pro...
Background- We assessed the contribution of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factors to resting and agonist-stimulated vasodilator tone in health and disease. Tetraethylammonium chloride (TEA) was...
Previous work on female rat aorta has shown that although monomethylarginine (L-NMMA) and asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) each enhance submaximal phenylephrine-induced tone, consistent with blockad...
Background- Oxidized low-density lipoprotein reduces endothelial nitric oxide production (an important mediator of vasoregulation) and activates p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), a mediator...
