Disease relevance of Abdominal Cavity


Psychiatry related information on Abdominal Cavity

  • The GFn may contribute to male reproductive performance by transmitting cutaneous information during copulation and, via contraction of the Cm to promote ejaculation, the protective displacement of the testes into the abdominal cavity during fighting and as a sperm-protecting thermoregulatory measure [6].

High impact information on Abdominal Cavity

  • L-dRib (20 mg/kg/day) was significantly (P < 0.05) more efficient than tegafur (100 mg/kg/day) in decreasing the number of metastatic nodules in organs in the abdominal cavity [7].
  • Use of intracavitary cisplatin for the treatment of childhood solid tumors in the chest or abdominal cavity [8].
  • A second minipump was then implanted which released bromodeoxyuridine to the abdominal cavity 5 days after the start of Cip or PB administration and lasted for 72 h until the termination of the experiment [9].
  • However, on surgical translocation of the grafted testes from the scrotum into the abdominal cavity, the rats promptly became normoglycemic in the absence of any additional therapy [10].
  • In contrast, technetium Tc 99m albumin aggregated injected injected into the pleural fluid showed no movement into the abdominal cavity [11].

Associations of Abdominal Cavity with chemical compounds

  • When GH-producing cells were microcapsulated and transplanted into the abdominal cavities of rats, 20K-GH was detected in the plasma under control conditions and increased about 3.3-fold after administration of dexamethasone [27].
  • Regular-size (0.8-1.1 mm) or small microcapsules (0.5-0.7 mm) were produced by cross-linking with BaCl2 without additional poly-L-lysine coating and were transplanted into abdominal cavity of normoglycemic (empty capsules) or streptozotocin induced diabetic Lewis rats (islet containing capsules) [28].
  • To evaluate the different estimates of peritoneal function, PET data and the A0/Deltax parameters were compared with the independently determined uptake of a small diffusible tracer, iohexol (molecular weight of 821 D), from the abdominal cavity to blood [29].
  • Using intraperitoneal injection, C1, C6, N1 and L2 showed marked disseminated growth in the abdominal cavity with bloody ascitis [30].
  • The level of inhibition of sympathetic efferent nerves to the abdominal cavity was assessed by repeated measurements of blood glucose levels during the first postoperative day [31].

Gene context of Abdominal Cavity

  • RESULTS: At the time of opening of the abdominal cavity, levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) type 1 (P = 0.009) and tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA)/PAI complex (P = 0.008) were increased in peritoneal samples from patients with severe adhesions compared with those in samples from patients with less severe adhesions [32].
  • Spontaneous ex vivo TNF-alpha release was significantly increased whenever the abdominal cavity was exposed to ambient air [33].
  • Our data indicate that IL-1beta and TNF-alpha may significantly affect disease processes of the abdominal cavity by their potential to disrupt the mesothelial basal cell-matrix adhesion and, thus, the integrity of the peritoneal mesothelial cell lining [34].
  • AL-3264 (30-100 mg/kg, p.o.) inhibited the antigen-induced LT production in the abdominal cavity of passively sensitized rats; its effect was as potent as that of AA-861, a 5-LO inhibitor [35].
  • NUGC-4 cells, which disseminate early after inoculation into the abdominal cavity of nude mice, predominantly express CD44H and beta1 integrin [36].
