The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, University of California Los Angeles, CA, USA
J Interferon Cytokine Res 29:749-58. 2009..TNF-alpha increases during recovery from cardiac arrest are associated with depression of left ventricle (LV) function. The effect of TNF-alpha can be attenuated by anti-TNF-alpha antibodies...
- Markers of progenitor cell recruitment and differentiation rise early during ischemia and continue during resuscitation in a porcine acute ischemia modelAtman P Shah
Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60637, USA
J Interferon Cytokine Res 31:509-13. 2011..These markers continue to rise during successful resuscitation and may represent an endogenous mechanism to recruit undifferentiated stem cells to areas of myocardial injury...

David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, United States
Resuscitation 84:103-7. 2013..We hypothesized that administration of infliximab after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) would ameliorate hypotension and myocardial dysfunction and prolong survival...

Department of Emergency Medicine, Harbor UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, CA, USA
Crit Care Med 38:1162-7. 2010..We hypothesized that blocking the effects of tumor necrosis factor-alpha with infliximab would prevent or minimize postresuscitation cardiac dysfunction...
- Transthoracic defibrillation potential gradients in a closed chest porcine model of prolonged spontaneous and electrically induced ventricular fibrillationJames T Niemann
The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, United States
Resuscitation 81:477-80. 2010..We hypothesized that prolonged ischaemic VF would be more difficult to terminate when compared to electrically induced VF of similar duration...
