Three versions of Perceived Stress Scale: validation in a sample of Chinese cardiac patients who smoke

Leung, YP; Lam, TH; Chan, SSC

BACKGROUND: Smoking causes heart disease, the major cause of death in China and Hong Kong. Stress is one major trigger of smoking and relapse, and understanding stress among smoking cardiac patients can therefore help in designing effective interventions to motivate them to quit. The objective of th...

High-level production of recombinant human lysosomal acid alpha-glucosidase in Chinese hamster ovary cells which targets to heart muscle and corrects glycogen accumulation in fibroblasts from patients with Pompe disease.

Brady, R O; Van Hove, J L; Wu, J Y; Yang, H W; Chen, Y T

Infantile Pompe disease is a fatal genetic muscle disorder caused by a deficiency of acid alpha-glucosidase, a glycogen-degrading lysosomal enzyme. We constructed a plasmid containing a 5'-shortened human acid alpha-glucosidase cDNA driven by the cytomegalovirus promoter, as well as the aminoglycosi...

Galectin binding proteins in serum and bronchoalveolar lavage -in healthy and pathological conditions

Cederfur, Cecilia

Galectins are carbohydrate binding proteins, implicated in conditions of both inflammation and cancer. Connections between chronic inflammation and cancer are proposed by the increased remodelling and proliferation that occurs, leading to enhanced survival and proliferation of malignant cells. Since...

Environmental tobacco smoke

Law, MR; Hackshaw, AK

Environmental tobacco smoke is on important contaminant of indoor air. For a nonsmoker living with a smoker the exposure is equivalent to about 1% of that From actively smoking 20 cigarettes a day (based on plasma cotinine). There is strong and consistent evidence that passive smoking increases the ...

Enhanced bridging function and augmented monocyte adhesion by lipoprotein lipase N9: insights into increased risk of coronary artery disease in N9 carriers

Fisher, RM; Benhizia, F; Schreiber, R; Makoveichuk, E; Putt, W; Al-Haideri, M; Deckelbaum, RJ; Olivecrona, G; Humphries, SE

Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is central to triacylglycerol (TG) metabolism, having both hydrolytic and bridging functions. The common LPL gene variant D9N is associated with raised TG, reduced HDL-cholesterol concentrations and increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). To investigate the function...

Apolipoprotein(a) phenotypes, Lp(a) concentration and plasma lipid levels in relation to coronary heart disease in a Chinese population: evidence for the role of the apo(a) gene in coronary heart disease.

Tong, M C; Sandholzer, C; Saha, N; Boerwinkle, E; Utermann, G

Elevated lipoprotein(a) (Lp[a]) concentrations are associated with premature coronary heart disease (CHD). In the general population, Lp(a) levels are largely determined by alleles at the hypervariable apolipoprotein(a) (apo[a]) gene locus, but other genetic and environmental factors also affect pla...
