J.; Zinsmeister, A. R.; Farrugia, G. // Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics;Feb2010, Vol. 87 Issue 2, p187 

    Heme oxygenase (HO)-1 degrades heme and protects against oxidative stress, but it has not been pharmacologically induced in humans. In this randomized study of 10 healthy volunteers, hemin (3 mg/kg intravenously in 25% albumin) was shown to increase plasma HO-1 protein concentration four- to...

    Within this study, we reveal the long range correlation concerning hydrophilicity and flexibility along sequences of hemoglobins belonging to different organisms and we compare them with the long range correlations properties obtained for other protein families. For all hemoglobins considered,...

    Plasma volume (PV), determined indirectly from changes in haematocrit (Hct) and haemoglobin concentration ([Hb]), underestimates the absolute PV change (Evans blue dye) during thermoneutral immersion. Since PV changes during cold-water immersion have only been determined indirectly, we...

    RBC deformation is thought to play a major role in both RBC dynamics and functionality. Due to the difficulty of experiments on real RBCs, researchers tend to perform computational simulations that can cover RBC dynamics and blood rheology. However, modeling of RBC with physiological conditions...
