The effects of ethylenediaminetetraacetate (EDTA) were studied in rats. Intravenous infusion of 4.84 mM Na2EDTA increased the urinary excretion of calcium six-fold, phosphorus three-fold and hydroxyproline 55% in 158 g thyroparathyroidectomized (TPTXed) rats. Calcitonin (25 MRC mU/rat/h) abolished the sodium EDTA-induced increase in hydroxyproline(More)
Hypertonic urea has been shown to be an effective midtrimester abortifacient. Although safer than hypertonic saline when injected intravascularly, it has not been compared to saline in the case of inadvertent intramyometrial injection. This report documents that intramyometrial injection of hypertonic urea will result in the same type of muscle necrosis as(More)
Hypertonic urea solutions (58 per cent weight/volume) were injected rapidly into ten anesthetized rhesus monkeys at a dose of approximately 2 Gm. per kilogram by the intravenous, intraperitoneal, or intra-amniotic routes. An additional monkey received an intra-amniotic dose of 12.5 Gm. per kilogram. A tracer dose 14C-urea was included for measuring(More)
Liver microsomal suspensions from pregnant and nonpregnant Sprague-Dawley rats were assayed for NADPH-dependent metabolism of phenytoin to the hydroxylated products, 5-(rho-hydroxyphenyl)-5-phenylhydantoin (rhoHPPH) and 5-(3,4-dihydroxy-1,5-cyclohexadien-1-yl)5-phenylhydantoin (H2DIOL). UDP-glucuronic acid-dependent glucuronyltransferase activity for(More)
Three rhesus monkeys in midgestation were injected intra-amniotically with hyperosmolar 14C-urea (58 per cent weight/volume, 2.3 Gm. per kilogram, 25 muc) and the concentration of 14C-urea measured serially for 24 hours in amniotic fluid, maternal serum, and maternal urine. The volume of the amniotic space was measured by isotope dilution of 99mTc-albumin.(More)
