The binding characteristics of T4 and T3 to dilute plasma were studied separately in five normal euthyroid subjects with normal levels of thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG). Scatchard analyses of these data revealed similar mean affinity constants for T4 [2.0 +/- 0.7 (SD) X 10(9) M-1] and T3 (2.0 +/- 0.7 X 10(9) M-1), but a 5-fold higher capacity for T4 (0.75(More)
AIM To determine the prevalence of neutropenia and agranulocytosis in patients taking clozapine since its introduction into New Zealand in April 1988. METHOD Data was collected by Sandoz Pharma (NZ) Ltd on blood counts from all patients prescribed clozapine as part of its worldwide monitoring programme for this drug. The data was analysed by one of the(More)
A reassessment of the binding characteristics of [125I]rT3 to putative receptors in nuclear protein extracts of rat and pig liver revealed that significant deiodination of radioligand occurred during incubation. When previously reported separation procedures are used, released radioiodine is included in the protein-bound [125I]rT3 fraction during separation(More)
Ganoderma fungal spores are a major component of the Auckland air-spora. Previous studies of ganoderma involvement in allergic asthma and rhinitis were extended by locating the sporophores (fruiting bodies) in the Auckland area and systematically collecting the ejected spores. Maximum production by one sporophore was 5 gram dry weight of spores in one week,(More)
The electrophoretic variant of human LDH, Calcutta-1, occurs at phenotypic frequencies of 0–4% throughout India. The variant was examined by various electrophoretic techniques and by heat stability studies. The LD1 (B4) isoenzyme was purified from normal and variant bloods by affinity chromatography and ion-exchange chromatography. A minimum of five(More)
