How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Minocycline (MC) is a second-generation semi-synthetic analogue of tetracycline. MC has been used as an antibiotic and for the treatment of various diseases such as acne vulgaris, sexually transmitted diseases, and rheumatoid arthritis. MC is currently being explored in various clinical trials for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases such as st...

IntroductionSepsis and other infections are associated with late cardiovascular events. Although persistent inflammation is implicated, a causal relationship has not been established. We tested whether sepsis causes vascular inflammation and accelerates atherosclerosis.Methods Prospective randomized animal studies at a university research laborator...
Article
Epidemiological evidence suggests that a high consumption of isoflavone-rich soy products is associated with a reduced incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Moreover, soy-based diets have been reported to protect against the development of atherosclerosis in hyperlipidemic animal models. However, the underlying mechanism(s) for this protection...
Article
Experimental focal cerebral ischemia was produced in monkeys (Macaca radiata) by occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA). The release of the lysosomal glycosidases, beta-D-hexosaminidase, alpha-L-fucosidase and alpha-D-mannosidase into the soluble fraction in the right basal ganglia of the experimental animals was measured at different...
Article
We have isolated a heat-stable, low molecular weight activator peptide(s) from monkey parotid gland that specifically activated human salivary beta-D-glucosidase. This activator appeared to be heterogeneous on Sephadex G-25 gel filtration and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis under non-denaturing conditions. About 45% of the human salivary beta-gl...
Article
Physical and biochemical changes in the spinal cord of monkeys at 1/2, 2, and 4 hours following 200 g cm contusion injury and 50 g of compression injury and 2 hours of decompression following 4 hours of compression were studied. The pathophysiologic changes were milder in compression compared to contusion injury. Following contusion injury, at 1/2...
