Delayed leukocytosis after hard strength and endurance exercise. Aspects of regulatory mechanisms
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2003-12-11)
Background: During infections, polymorphonuclear neutrophilic granulocytes (PMN) are mobilized from their bone marrow stores, travel with blood to the affected tissue, and kill invading microbes there. The signal(s) from the inflammatory site to the marrow are unknown, even though a number of humoral factors that can mobilize PMN, are well known. We have employed a standardized, non-infectious ...
Liver sinusoidal endothelial cells represents an important blood clearance system in pigs
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2003-01-03)
Background: Numerous studies in rats and a few other mammalian species, including man, have shown that the sinusoidal cells constitute an important part of liver function. In the pig, however, which is frequently used in studies on liver transplantation and liver failure models, our knowledge about the function of hepatic sinusoidal cells is scarce. We have explored the scavenger function of pig ...
