Effects of the intracoronary and intraventricular injections of a commonly available vs. a newly available contrast medium

Two contrast media (Renografin 76 and Isopaque 370) were used in a double-blind study for coronary angiography and left ventriculography. Fifty-eight patients with presumed coronary artery disease were studied. The effects of the contrast media upon the myocardium and upon ventricular function of patients with and without coronary artery disease were assessed. Pre and post angiography myocardial enzymes were obtained. Cardiac output was determined before and after the angiograms. Hemodynamic and electrocardiographic changes were continuously monitored during the procedure. The study showed that both contrast media produced similar changes; however, the "maximum" decrease in T wave amplitude was more marked in the normal group when Renografin 76 (as compared with Isopaque 370) was injected (p = 0.05) on the right. Renografin 76 injection into the left coronary artery produced a higher median T wave amplitude in lead II relative to Isopaque 370 only in the abnormal group (p = 0.01). The heart rate dropped more severely in the normal patients when the left coronary artery was injected with Renografin 76 than with Isopaque 370 (p = 0.05).

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

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.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. 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.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
