Glucagon-like peptide 1 induces natriuresis in healthy subjects and in insulin-resistant obese men.
Glucagon-like peptide-1-(7-36)-amide (GLP-1) is involved in satiety control and glucose homeostasis. Animal studies suggest a physiological role for GLP-1 in water and salt homeostasis. This study'sExpand

The allosteric vestibule of a seven transmembrane helical receptor controls G-protein coupling
Seven transmembrane helical receptors (7TMRs) modulate cell function via different types of G proteins, often in a ligand-specific manner. Class A 7TMRs harbour allosteric vestibules in the entranceExpand

Supporting medication adherence in renal transplantation (SMART): a pilot RCT to improve adherence to immunosuppressive regimens
Abstract:  Background:  Although non‐adherence to an immunosuppressive regimen (NAH) is a major risk factor for poor outcome after renal transplantation (RTx), very few studies have examinedExpand

Examining assumptions regarding valid electronic monitoring of medication therapy: development of a validation framework and its application on a European sample of kidney transplant patients
BackgroundElectronic monitoring (EM) is used increasingly to measure medication non-adherence. Unbiased EM assessment requires fulfillment of assumptions. The purpose of this study was to determineExpand

An automated 'bio-intact' PTH assay: a step towards standardisation and improved correlation with parathyroid function in renal disease.
BACKGROUND Most methods for the determination of parathyroid hormone (PTH) show cross-reactivity with N-truncated forms of PTH. The analytic and diagnostic value of a recently developed automated PTHExpand
