Comparison of physiological parameters and anaesthesia specific observations during isoflurane, ketamine-xylazine or medetomidine-midazolam-fentanyl anaesthesia in male guinea pigs
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Guinea pigs (GPs) are difficult to anaesthetize successfully, the choices for anaesthesia are limited and physiological parameters are likely to be influenced substantially under anaesthesia. We implanted blood pressure ...
Antioxidant enzyme activity is associated with blood pressure and carotid intima media thickness in black men and women: the SABPA study
In the urbanized black population of South Africa, oxidative stress may play a crucial role in the development of hypertension. Since oxidative stress may result from impaired antioxidant capacity we aimed to investigate ...
Inflammation as possible mediator for the relationship between lung and artirial function
Introduction Reduced lung function is associated with a risk for the development of cardiovascular disease. This association may be due to chronic inflammation which is often present in those with reduced lung ...
Cardiovascular function is not associated with creatine kinase activity in a black African population: the SABPA study
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2016)
Background: Higher creatine kinase (CK) activity is associated with the development of cardiovascular disease in black African populations. We compared CK activity and investigated associations of blood pressure with CK ...
