Insulin Alters the Permeability of Sheep Pleura
Aim: Insulin promotes ion transportation across epithelia, mainly kidneys, leading to water and electrolyte abnormalities, possibly causing 'insulin oedema syndrome', which rarely presents as pleural effusion. Direct ...
IGF-1 alters the human parietal pleural electrochemical profile by inhibiting ion trans-cellular transportation after interaction with its receptor
Objective: The effect of IGF-1 in the human pleural permeability and the underlying mechanisms involved were investigated. Design: Specimens from thoracic surgical patients were mounted in Ussing chambers. Solutions ...
Insulin-Induced Electrophysiology Changes in Human Pleura Are Mediated via Its Receptor
Background. Insulin directly changes the sheep pleural electrophysiology. The aim of this study was to investigate whether insulin induces similar effects in human pleura, to clarify insulin receptor's involvement, and to ...
Pleural electrophysiology alterations in spontaneous pneumothorax patients
Physiology changes of the pleura in spontaneous pneumothorax (SP) patients are not known with its etiology remaining unclear. The aim of the study was to investigate the pleural electrophysiology profile of SP patients and ...
Permeability Alterations after Surgical Trauma in Normal Rabbit Peritoneum
Background: To investigate whether surgical trauma in a rabbit adhesion formation model and the administration of normal saline (N/S), icodextrin (ID) and/or dimetindene maleate (DM) changes the permeability of the normal ...
Insulin-Induced Electrochemical Changes in Pleura are Associated with the Location within the Pleural Cavity
Aim: We investigated the effects of insulin on the electrophysiology of sheep pleural specimens obtained from the upper and lower parts of the pleural cavity and the insulin receptor abundance in these regions. Materials ...
