A circulating causative factor has been postulated in focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). It has been shown that serum or plasma from some FSGS increases glomerular albumin permeability (Palb) in vitro. Palb greater than 0.5 (i.e., FS activity) is associated with recurrence after transplantation. Specimens from 15 FSGS patients were studied to(More)
In this study, we describe the association between Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and symptomatic nephrolithiasis. The DMD patients were matched to non-ambulatory control patients with non-DMD neurological diagnoses via retrospective chart review. All patients with DMD and symptomatic nephrolithiasis were over 20 years old. We found that six of the 29(More)
Concentrations of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) (combined in the same radioimmunoassay) and prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha) were analyzed in circulating plasma and seminal vesicles of 3- and 26 to 27-month-old males and in circulating plasma and ovaries of 3-, 6-, 14 to 18- and 26 to 30-month-old female C57BL/6NNia mice.
