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's… Expand
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 entrance… Expand
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 examined… Expand
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

- 1 July 2005
Large‐scale clinical trials using C2 monitoring of cyclosporine (CsA) microemulsion (Neoral) in renal transplant recipients have demonstrated low acute rejection rates and good tolerability with a… Expand
Brachial artery dilatation after arteriovenous fistulae in patients after renal transplantation: a 10-year follow-up with ultrasound scan.

- Journal of vascular surgery
- 1 March 2003
BACKGROUND Dilatation of the artery proximal to arteriovenous fistula (AF) is not well known but is a potential serious complication in patients for renal transplant. METHODS From 1991 until 2001,… Expand
Medication Adherence Assessment: High Accuracy of the New Ingestible Sensor System in Kidney Transplants
Background This open-label single-arm exploratory study evaluated the accuracy of the Ingestible Sensor System (ISS), a novel technology for directly assessing the ingestion of oral medications and… Expand
