OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to investigate the prevalence of celiac disease in children and adolescents with Down syndrome. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-three children and adolescents with Down syndrome were screened for IgA-antigliadin antibodies (AGA) and IgA-antiendomysium antibodies (EMA). Patients found to be either AGA- or EMA-positive were(More)
Using the nationwide childhood-onset diabetes register in Sweden, we were able to trace children who contracted diabetes before the age of 15 years and who were born at a specific hospital in Sweden where maternal sera from delivery had been stored during the years 1969-1989. Sera obtained at delivery from 57 mothers of diabetic children were compared with(More)
The structures for the hexose regions of cores from Enterobacteriaceae lipopolysaccharides have been investigated, using specific degradations and 1H NMR studies as the principal methods. Complete structures for these regions in the Salmonella, the Escherichia coli R1, R2, R3, R4, the E. coli K12 and E. coli B cores are proposed. Some complementary(More)
We studied the risk for diabetes of glutamate decarboxylase (GAD65Ab) and islet cell (ICA) autoantibodies in non-diabetic pregnant mothers and their children. Pregnancy and cord blood sera were collected in 1970-87 from about 35,000 mothers who delivered a child in the city of Malmö, Sweden. A total of 42 mothers were identified in 1988 who, 1-18 years(More)
The structure of the O-antigen polysaccharide from Escherichia coli O-149 has been investigated; methylation analysis, partial hydrolysis with acid, and n.m.r. spectroscopy were the principal methods used. It is concluded that the polysaccharide is composed of trisaccharide repeating-units having the following structure. (Formula: see text). The absolute(More)
Adenosine kinase has been partially purified from homogenates of rabbit liver and Ehrlich ascites tumor cells. The kinase preparation obtained was free of adenosine deamlnase and almost free of adenosine triphosphatase activity. In addition to adenosine, 34 analogues or derivatives of adenosine have been investigated with the enzyme. Of these compounds, 16(More)
The dominant part of the O-antigen of Vibrio cholerae is a homopolysaccharide composed of (1 leads to 2)-linked 4-amino-4,6-dideoxy-alpha-D-mannopyranosyl (perosaminyl) residues, in amino groups of which are acylated by 3-deoxy-L-glycero-tetronic acid. Most of the amino sugar is decomposed during acid hydrolysis. Treatment of the polymer with anhydrous(More)
Five women who developed hypertension during pregnancy received metoprolol, 10 mg iv; 3 days later they received metoprolol, 100 mg by mouth. Blood and urine samples were collected after each dose. The same procedure was repeated 3 to 6 months after delivery. The apparent oral clearance of metoprolol during pregnancy exceeded that after pregnancy by a(More)
OBJECTIVE Hyperostosis-hyperphosphataemia syndrome (HHS) is a rare hereditary disorder characterized by hyperphosphataemia, inappropriately normal or elevated 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) and localized painful cortical hyperostosis. HHS was shown to be caused by inactivating mutations in GALNT3, encoding UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine: polypeptide(More)
