Plasma concentrations of cytokines and neurohumoral factors in a case of fulminant myocarditis successfully treated with intravenous immunoglobulin and percutaneous cardiopulmonary support

, : Plasma concentrations of cytokines and neurohumoral factors in a case of fulminant myocarditis successfully treated with intravenous immunoglobulin and percutaneous cardiopulmonary support. Circulation Journal 68(12): 1223-1226

A 53-year-old Japanese man with fulminant myocarditis was referred. Percutaneous cardiopulmonary Support (PCPs) was introduced immediately and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy followed for 2 days. Cardiac function showed signs of recovery on the 4th hospital day and the patient was weaned from PCPS on the 7th hospital day. Creatine kinase-MB peaked at 12 h after admission and was 176 ng/ml. Endomyocardial biopsy showed active myocarditis.

Males from strains selected for high egg production (and other economic traits) and from unselected control strains were used to determine the frequency of shedding of lymphoid leukosis virus (LLV) into semen. The effect of the male's LLV...
