Summary of "Bazedoxifene-induced vasodilation and inhibition of vasoconstriction is significantly greater than estradiol."

A new strategy for menopausal hormone therapy replaces medroxyprogesterone with the selective estrogen receptor modulator bazedoxifene. While the agonist or antagonist activity of bazedoxifene has been examined in other tissues, the current study explored the impact of bazedoxifene on resistance artery reactivity. We hypothesized that bazedoxifene may induce greater vasoprotective effects than estradiol due to enhanced activation of the G-protein-coupled estrogen receptor.

Vascular pathology of large cerebral arteries in experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage: Vasoconstriction, functional CGRP depletion and maintained CGRP sensitivity.

Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is associated with increased cerebral artery sensitivity to vasoconstrictors and release of the perivascular sensory vasodilator CGRP. In the current study the constricti...

Combined bazedoxifene and paclitaxel treatments inhibit cell viability, cell migration, colony formation, and tumor growth and induce apoptosis in breast cancer.

Breast cancer, especially triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), has limited treatment options. We repurposed the FDA-approved drug bazedoxifene as a novel inhibitor of interleukin 6/glycoprotein 130 s...

Age and sex differences in sympathetic and hemodynamic responses to hypoxia and cold pressor test.

Emerging evidence suggests that sympathetic vasoconstriction is lower in young women. We hypothesized that increases in muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) during acute physiological stressors in...

Use of epoprostenol to treat severe pulmonary vasoconstriction induced by protamine in cardiac surgery.

Since there were a few articles to report the treatment of severe pulmonary vasoconstriction induced by protamine in cardiac surgery, we described the use of epoprostenol to reverse this condition.A t...

Involvement of RhoA/Rho-kinase in l-cysteine/HS pathway-induced inhibition of agonist-mediated corpus cavernosal smooth muscle contraction.

Rho-kinase activity is a key regulator in the maintenance of corporal vasoconstriction and penile detumescense. Also, importance of l-cysteine/HS pathway in erectile tissue has been shown; however it ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

Cyclopentanophenanthrenes with a 5- or 6-membered lactone ring attached at the 17-position and SUGARS attached at the 3-position. Plants they come from have long been used in congestive heart failure. They increase the force of cardiac contraction without significantly affecting other parameters, but are very toxic at larger doses. Their mechanism of action usually involves inhibition of the NA(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE and they are often used in cell biological studies for that purpose.

Condition wherein the force of gravity is greater than or is increased above that on the surface of the earth. This is expressed as being greater than 1 g.

Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.

Artificially induced UTERINE CONTRACTION. Generally, LABOR, OBSTETRIC is induced with the intent to cause delivery of the fetus and termination of pregnancy.
