Effects of 16, 16-dimethyl prostaglandin E2 methyl ester on aspirin-and indomethacin-induced gastrointestinal lesions in dogs

The pathogenesis of aspirin- or indomethacin-induced gastric and/or intestinal lesions was studied in dogs. 16,16-Dimethyl PGE2 methyl ester (16-DMPGE2) at 2 or 10 microgram/kg in two divided doses given intramuscularly markedly inhibited gastric lesions produced by orally ingested aspirin at 200 mg/kg/day given twice daily for 1 or 5 days. While 16-DMPGE2 at the same dose also inhibited gastric lesions induced by a single oral administration of indomethacin at 20 mg/kg, gastric lesions including deep antral ulcers, produced by repeated administration of indomethacin, were not affected. Intestinal lesions produced by indomethacin given once, or for 5 or 10 days, were not affected. These results suggest that the lack of engoenous prostaglandins may be involved in the pathogenesis of gastric lesions produced by aspirin and indomethacin given once but may not be involved in the pathogenesis of indomethacin-induced deep lesions in the stomach and intestine.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Social Learning

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells.
