The urinary excretion of N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase (NAG), a lysosomal enzyme of the renal tubular cells was analyzed in 177 women divided into nonpregnant healthy controls (n = 46), normal pregnant women in their third trimester (n = 49), pregnant women with transient hypertension (n = 43), and women with preeclampsia (n = 39). Urinary activity of NAG(More)
Concentrations of circulating fibronectin were studied in plasma of 22 patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and 24 healthy blood donors. There were significant differences between the plasma fibronectin values of the patient population with AIDS (mean 2 SD = 206 +/- 86 mg/l) and of the control group (mean +/- 2 SD = 297 +/- 92 mg/l).

We describe seven patients (five females and two males) with pernicious anaemia and Sjögren's syndrome. The diagnosis of pernicious anaemia was confirmed by bone marrow aspiration and a Schilling's test. Sjögren's syndrome was diagnosed by the Schirmer-I tear test, salivary gland scintigraphy, minor salivary gland biopsy and determination of lacrimal(More)
N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase (NAG, EC 3.2.1.30) is a lysosomal enzyme present in the proximal convoluted tubule. Increased urinary excretion of NAG has been shown in urinary tract infections. Our results have confirmed that urinary excretion of NAG is significantly higher (33.70 +/- 8.75 U/g Cr) in patients with upper urinary tract infection than in(More)
