Patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) demonstrate a markedly more negative potential difference (PD) across respiratory epithelia than normal or "diseased" controls. A technique is described for the measurement of nasal PD in both children and adults. 145 non-CF subjects showed a mean PD of -19.0 mV (range -2 to -36) in comparison to 60 patients with cystic(More)
The protease inhibitors antipain, leupeptin, alpha 1-antitrypsin, and epsilon-aminocaproic acid were found to inhibit transformation of NIH3T3 cells after transfection with an activated H-ras oncogene. Inhibition of focus formation by protease inhibitors was concentration dependent and maximal at 50% of control values. Transfection of a gene for neomycin(More)
The central effects of atenolol (50 mg tds) and captopril (50 mg tds) ingested for a period of seven days were studied in ten healthy volunteers. A placebo and two active control drugs, methyldopa (250 mg tds) and oxazepam (10 mg), were included in the design. Oxazepam was ingested on the seventh day only, with a placebo being taken on the preceding six(More)
1. Central effects of the calcium antagonist, nifedipine retard (10, 20 and 40 mg) and nifedipine capsules (10 mg) were studied in 14 healthy male subjects. Two placebos and an active control drug, oxazepam (15 mg), were included. Medication was administered double-blind at 10.00 h. The effects of drugs on performance and subjective feelings were assessed(More)
BACKGROUND Large epidemiologic studies have the potential to make valuable contributions to the assessment of gene-environment interactions because they prospectively collected detailed exposure data. Some of these studies, however, have only serum or plasma samples as a low quantity source of DNA. METHODS We examined whether DNA isolated from serum can(More)
1. Central effects of the diuretic, bendrofluazide (2.5, 5 and 10 mg) were studied in 12 healthy volunteers. Two placebos and an active control drug, oxazepam (15 mg), were included. Single doses were administered double-blind at 10.00 h. The effects of drugs on performance and subjective feelings were assessed before and from 1.5-2.5 and 3.5-4.5 h after(More)
