  • Metabolic Control of Muscle Blood Flow During Exercise in Humans. Boushel, Robert // Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology;Oct2003, Vol. 28 Issue 5, p754 

    During muscle contraction, several mechanisms regulate blood flow to ensure a close coupling between muscle oxygen delivery and metabolic demand. No single factor has been identified to constitute the primary metabolic regulator, yet there are signal transduction pathways between skeletal muscle...

    Several studies have shown that, per unit mass, myocardial blood flow (MBF) and oxygen consumption are similar in hypertrophic and non-hypertrophic ventricles. This observation may be explained by the degree of myocardial growth matching the increase in oxygen demand. Such matching may, however,...

    Objectives: Recent clinical studies suggest that contractile reserve may occur in a minority of viable, chronically dysfunctional segments with reduced resting flow (hibernating myocardium). We hypothesized that epicardial artery patency might predict which segments have critically...

    We investigated the relationship of serum uric acid (UA) with resting forearm blood flow (FBF), reactive hyperaemia (RH) and flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of the brachial artery in hypertensive adults (n=506, mean age 62 years, 59% women). UA was measured by a colorimetric method. FBF, RH and FMD...

    Objectives: Previous studies on therapeutic interventions in sepsis have assumed stability of the measure of splanchnic blood flow throughout the study. We assessed the variability of splanchnic blood flow during stable global hemodynamics in eight patients with sepsis requiring treatment with...

  • Coordinated activation of VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2 is a potent arteriogenic stimulus leading to enhancement of regional perfusion Babiak, Alexander; Schumm, Anke-Mira; Wangler, Christoph; Loukas, Marios; Wu, Jianbo; Dombrowski, Saskia; Matuschek, Christiane; Kotzerke, Jörg; Dehio, Christoph; Waltenberger, Johannes // Cardiovascular Research;Mar2004, Vol. 61 Issue 4, p789 

    Objective: The process of arteriogenesis is driven by various growth factors including vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A, which mediates its activity through VEGFR-2 (Flk-1/KDR) on endothelial cells and through VEGFR-1 (Flt-1) on endothelial cells and monocytes. The purpose of this...

    Abstract For the smoker, nicotine has a positive effect on attention, cognition and mood. Conversely, nicotine abstinence is characterized by uncomfortable psychological effects such as impaired attention, but also irritability. We postulated that nicotine exerts an effect on cerebral areas...
