  1. ncbi request reprint Induction and antimicrobial activity of platelet basic protein derivatives in human monocytes
    Andreas Schaffner
    Division of Infectious Diseases, University of California San Diego, USA
    J Leukoc Biol 76:1010-8. 2004
    ..Our observations indicate that PBP and its derivates are constituents of the antimicrobial arsenal of human monocytes. Their increased expression after exposure to microorganisms allows a rapid host response to pathogens...
  2. ncbi request reprint Pretransplant evaluation for infections in donors and recipients of solid organs
    A Schaffner
    Department of Internal Medicine, University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland
    Clin Infect Dis 33:S9-14. 2001
    ..Although these principals are well accepted, standards for the extent of screening and criteria for inappropriate donors and exclusion of unfit recipients remain controversial to some extent...
  3. ncbi request reprint Induction of tetrahydrobiopterin synthesis in human umbilical vein smooth muscle cells by inflammatory stimuli
    R Walter
    Department of Medicine, University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland
    Immunol Lett 60:13-7. 1998
    ..Our results show for the first time that BH4 biosynthesis is strongly induced by combinations of inflammatory stimuli in HUVSMC. The importance of BH4-dependent NO synthesis in HUVSMC needs, however, additional detailed studies...
  4. pmc Comparison of effects of amphotericin B deoxycholate infused over 4 or 24 hours: randomised controlled trial
    U Eriksson
    Medicine B, University Hospital, University of Zurich, CH 8091 Zurich, Switzerland
    BMJ 322:579-82. 2001
    ..To test the hypothesis that amphotericin B deoxycholate is less toxic when given by continuous infusion than by conventional rapid infusion...
  5. ncbi request reprint Inhalation of the nitric oxide synthase cofactor tetrahydrobiopterin in healthy volunteers
    R Walter
    Department of Medicine, University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland
    Am J Respir Crit Care Med 156:2006-10. 1997
    ..Our data demonstrate that inhalation is a novel method for local BH4 administration, offering a basic therapeutic tool for investigation of restoration of impaired NO-dependent vasodilation due to pulmonary endothelial dysfunction...
  6. ncbi request reprint Marginal and subgingival plaque--a natural habitat of Tropheryma whipplei?
    A S Zinkernagel
    Department of Medicine, University Hospital, Ramistrasse 100, CH 8091 Zurich, Switzerland
    Infection 31:86-91. 2003
    ..DNA of Tropheryma whipplei, the etiologic agent of Whipple's disease, has recently been detected in the saliva of healthy subjects. In this pilot study we searched for the habitat of T. whipplei within the oral cavity...
  7. ncbi request reprint Differential regulation of constitutive and inducible nitric oxide production by inflammatory stimuli in murine endothelial cells
    R Walter
    Department of Medicine, University Hospital of Zurich, Switzerland
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 202:450-5. 1994
    ..Thus inflammatory stimuli trigger murine vascular endothelial cells to switch from constitutive to inducible NO synthase activity...
