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)
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)
OBJECTIVES To study the effect of different types of sports on plasma lipid profile. Subjects and method. Fasting plasma levels of total, LDL- and HDL-cholesterol (TC, LDLc, HDLc), triglycerides, phospholipids, apo A-I, apo B-100, and Lp(a) were measured in 28 swimmers, 17 volleyball players and 23 soccer players, and in a control group. All subjects(More)
The aim of the paper was to study the urinary beta-glucuronidase activity in 30 patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC), histopathologically proven after surgery, and 32 healthy subjects taken as controls. Classification of patients was done using the TNM system. A statistically significant increase (p < 0.01) in this enzyme was found in RCC patients,(More)
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)
