Alterations in Brain Neurotransmitters in B(α)P Exposed Rats: Role of D2 Receptors
Benzo(α)pyrene (B(α)P) (10mg/kg bwx3, ip), a representative polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH), changed dopaminergic activity in hippocampus as assessed by dopamine (DA) levels and turnover. This effect is likely mediated ...
Neuroendocrine manifestations in Sjogren's syndrome: Relation to the neurobiology of stress
Evidence suggests that autoimmune rheumatic diseases are associated with neuroendocrine dysfunction. Sjogren's syndrome (SS) is proposed as an ideal model to study perturbations in the neuroimmune axis, since patients tend ...
Evidence of α2-adrenoceptor involvement in B[α]P induction processes of drug-metabolizing enzymes: The effect of stress
Central to the appropriate regulation of behavioral and physiological changes induced by stress are the noradrenergic neuronal systems which have been implicated in a large number of stress-induced pathophysiological states. ...
The role of stress in the regulation of drug metabolizing enzymes in mice
The role of stress in the regulation of several enzymatic systems which are involved in the biotransformation of xenobiotics in the liver was investigated in this study using restraint stress as a stress model. The results ...
Reduction of environmental contamination with multidrug-resistant bacteria by copper-alloy coating of surfaces in a highly endemic setting
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of copper-coating in reducing environmental colonization in an intensive-care unit (ICU) with multidrug-resistant-organism (MDRO) endemicity DESIGN Interventional, comparative crossover ...
The Association between Colonization with Carbapenemase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae and Overall ICU Mortality: An Observational Cohort Study
Objectives: Infections caused by carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae are increasing worldwide, especially in ICUs, and have been associated with high mortality rates. However, unequivocally demonstrating causality ...
