Quantitative spectral analysis of vigilance EEG in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome
Sleep disruption and blood gas abnormalities, observed in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) syndrome, prevent sleep-related restorative processes and induce chemical or structural central nervous system cellular ...
Resting tension effect on airway smooth muscle: the involvement of epithelium
We studied the influence of resting tension (RT) on rabbit tracheal smooth muscle (TSM) contractions induced by acetylcholine or KCl as well as the role of epithelium and the endogenously produced nitric oxide, prostanoids ...
Azithromycin has a direct relaxant effect on precontracted airway smooth muscle
Macrolides have been proven to have beneficial bacteriostatic and anti-inflammatory properties, but very little is known about the potential value of their bronchodilatory effect. Therefore, in the present study we ...
Resting tension affects eNOS activity in a calcium- dependent way in airways
The alteration of resting tension (RT) from 0.5 g to 2.5 g increased significantly airway smooth muscle contractions induced by acetylcholine (ACh) in rabbit trachea. The decrease in extracellular calcium concentration ...
Azithromycin has an antiproliferative and autophagic effect on airway smooth muscle cells
Azithromycin is used in long-term, low-dose treatment of airway diseases where airway wall remodelling is present. Since it improves total score symptom and respiratory function of such patients, we hypothesise that ...
Epithelium-dependent effect of L-glutamate on airways: involvement of prostaglandins
WE, investigated the effect of the excitatory amino acid (EAA) receptor agonists L-glutamate, N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), (RS)-a-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid (AMPA) and kainic acid on KCl-induced ...
