  • Effect of endothelin-1 on the transmesothelial resistance of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Kourti, P.; Zarogiannis, S.; Liakopoulos, V.; Hatzoglou, C.; Giannopoulou, M.; Chronopoulou, I.; Mertens, P. R.; Potamianos, S.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2007)
    The mesothelium is part of the peritoneal barrier that manages the water and ion transport essential for peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. In addition, it has a central role in the pathogenesis of peritoneal fibrosis and ...
  • Effect of sodium-potassium pump inhibition by ouabain on the permeability of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Zarogiannis, S.; Liakopoulos, V.; Hatzoglou, C.; Kourti, P.; Vogiatzidis, K.; Potamianos, S.; Eleftheriadis, T.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2007)
    The permeability for small solutes and the ultrafiltration capacity of the peritoneum are essential for effective peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. Elucidation of the factors that regulate these two properties is therefore ...
  • mu-Opioid stimulation of isolated parietal sheep peritoneum decreases peritoneal permeability in vitro 

    Zarogiannis, S.; Vogiatzidis, K.; Hatzoglou, C.; Liakopoulos, V.; Potamianos, S.; Eleftheriadis, T.; Dovas, S.; Kourti, P.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2007)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is one of the main barriers to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In a previous study, we showed the existence of a micro-opioid influence on the in vitro ionic permeability of serosal membranes ...
  • Predicting the effects of body fatness on food intake and performance of sheep 

    Tolkamp, B. J.; Yearsley, J. M.; Gordon, I. J.; Illius, A. W.; Speakman, J. R.; Kyriazakis, I. (2007)
    Adipose tissue produces signals that can have a profound effect on many physiological functions, including energy expenditure and food intake. The hypothesis that variation in food intake of sheep resulting from differences ...
  • Rapid effect of dexamethasone on the permeability of visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Karioti, A.; Hatzoglou, C.; Zarogiannis, S.; Deligiorgi, T.; Liakopoulos, V.; Kourti, P.; Giannopoulou, M.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2008)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is a biologic barrier to water and ion transport. Its functional and structural integrity is crucial for peritoneal dialysis treatment. In vivo studies have shown that corticosteroids increase ...
