Water: the unexpected blood pressure drug

... 60 minutes caused the blood pressure effect to be sustained for another hour. In older normal subjects, the average increase in blood pressure was 11 millimeters of mercury. There is something about the water itself that causes the increase in blood pressure; intravenous infusion of 16 ounces of sugar solutio...

UF researcher develops high blood pressure drug using gene therapy technique

...ike all medication, when we begin to think about a sustained effect we have to wonder what happens if you block the receptors (with the antisense) for too long -- are there downsides to it? For example, what happens if you need the receptors to kick in under certain conditions?" Dzau said. "That being said, we...

Time important in transporting critically injured to trauma centers

... Cornwell says, be it a gunshot wound vs. injuries sustained in an auto crash, for example. Proximity to a trauma center also is a factor. "Paramedics adhere to pre-established protocols in transporting trauma patients, so our studies showed an amazing consistency in the injury-to-hospital-arrival time interv...

Aptosyn™ (exisulind) and other SAANDs target early event in cancer; AACR presentations detail novel apoptotic pathway

...t of research at Cell Pathways. "We believe that a sustained rise in cGMP levels, in response to outside signals telling the cell that it is time to die, is blunted by high cGMP-PDE activity in neoplastic cells. If cGMP does not rise, PKG is not activated and the pathway culminating in apoptosis is blocked." ...

ZymoGenetics discovers potential new therapy for autoimmune diseases

... from SLE, and of these, an estimated 200,000 have sustained severe organ damage, requiring them to take immunosuppressive drugs to help them control the disease. Many of these drugs have debilitating side effects, so there is a clear need for treatments that act more specifically. There have been no fundame...

...tion processes, Liu said. The more important and sustained peak began about 10 minutes after the ingestion and was the brain's signal that it was physically full, Liu said. The peak lasted about two minutes and corresponded directly with an increase in sugar and insulin levels in the blood. In addition, the ...

A DNA plasmid is easier to make and transport than a protein, and it can be given once, whereas an injected protein...

Scientists bypass major hurdle to hemophilia gene therapy

"Before we create such l...
