Abstract

Cecropia glaziovii Sneth is a common tree at the Southeastern Brazilian coast. As many other species of the genus, it shares the reputed folk use to treat heart failure, cough, asthma and bronchitis. The plant has been cultivated under controlled conditions and the 2% aqueous extract (A...read more

Selective Ion Transport in Channels & Pumps

Ion channels and pumps are central to a number of cell functions, including membrane excitability and synaptic transmission. With sophisticated imaging, these channels and pumps have been characterized as selective for the ions, sodium, potassium chloride and calcium. Here is the latest research on selection ion transport in channels and pumps.

Paracoccidioidomycosis

Paracoccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii, and is characterized by dry cough and shortness of breath. Discover the latest research on Paracoccidioidomycosis here.

GPCRs in Blood Pressure Regulation

Blood pressure is tightly regulated by blood vessel radius, which is established by hormones and/or peptides binding to GPCRs (G-protein-coupled receptors). Discover the latest research on GPCRs in blood pressure regulation here

Endothelins & Receptors

Endothelin receptors are G-protein coupled receptors that mediate smooth muscle contraction or relaxation which in turn regulate blood pressure. Discover the latest research on endothelins and their receptors here.

Inotropic Agents & Heart Disease

Inotropic agents alter the force or energy of muscular contractions. Negatively inotropic agents weaken the force of muscular contractions. Positively inotropic agents increase the strength of muscular contraction. Inotropic agents are used in hospitalized patients with acute decompensated heart failure, with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction and with signs of end-organ dysfunction in the setting of a low cardiac output, or with severe systolic heart failure awaiting heart transplant to maintain hemodynamic stability or as a bridge to decision. Discover the latest research on inotrpic agents and heart diseases here.

Antihypertensive Agents: Mechanisms of Action

Antihypertensive drugs are used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) which aims to prevent the complications of high blood pressure, such as stroke and myocardial infarction. Discover the latest research on antihypertensive drugs and their mechanism of action here.

Neurohumoral Compensatory Mechanisms

The activation of neurohumoral compensatory mechanisms is a common physiological phenomenon in heart failure in order to make up for a failing heart, which will usually have a deteriorating effect on overall health condition. Discover the latest research on Neurohumoral Compensatory Mechanisms here.
