The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of immunoadsorption (IA) in combination with tacrolimus (TAC; 0.14 to 0.16 mg/kg/d) and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF; 1.5 to 2.0 g/d) rescue therapy for C4d-positive acute humoral rejection in nine cadaveric renal allograft recipients. Initial Panel reactive antibody (PRA-I and PRA-II levels were as high(More)
OBJECTIVES Endothelium dysfunction is one of the critical pathophysiologic disorders in patients with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP).

This study investigates the ozonation of 2-naphthalenesulfonate (2-NS) combined with ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Naphthalenesulfonic acids are of importance as dye intermediates for the dye and textile auxiliary industries. Its derivatives, such as 2-NS, have been found in rivers and tannery effluents causing pollution problems. Thus, the 2-NS is of concern(More)
