Serum angiotensin I converting enzyme was found to be elevated in 56 patients with sarcoidosis (52.7 +/- 25.4 nmole per min per ml) compared to 84 normal control subjects (28.2 +/- 11.3 nmole per min per ml), 22 patients with tuberculosis (26.4 +/- 10.9 nmole per min per ml), and 20 patients with lymphomas (31.8 +/ 13.9 nmole per min per ml).

The yield of cells obtained from the 1.7-mm brush was increased by more than twofold when the brush and bronchoscope were withdrawn as a unit through the pharynx and nose,(More)
The bronchodilator effects of aerosols of a high-dose of terbutaline sulfate (1.5 mg), a low-dose of terbutaline sulfate (0.75 mg), isoproterenol (0.3 mg), and placebo were compared using forced expiratory spirometry, flow-volume curves, and body plethysmography in a double-blind, six-hour, controlled study in 25 patients with reversible airflow(More)
