The effect of 25 mg. hydrochlorothiazide twice daily on the meta-phylaxis of recurrent calcium lithiasis was compared to placebo in a double-blind study during 1 year in 51 patients. A distinct and continuous decrease in urinary calcium excretion occurred only in patients given hyrochlorothiazide. On the other hand, both groups showed a slight increase in(More)
Isotype switch variants of the IgG3 secreting hybridoma BR55-2 were developed with gamma 1, gamma 2b and gamma 2a heavy chains. The variants have the same affinity for antigen and expected affinities for the Fc receptor. The Y antigen defined by MAb BR55-2 has a restricted distribution to breast, colorectal, pancreatic, gastric and small cell lung(More)
Outpatient renal stone formers belonging to the established urolithiasis subgroups and controls were examined with respect to urinary and serum citrate (Cit) and several associated variables. Only in the normocalciuric majority of calcium and in uric acid stone formers was Cit in 24-hour urine decreased, but was normal in 2-hour fasting morning, and in(More)
A convenient procedure for the synthesis of 2-heterosubstituted statine derivatives as novel building blocks in HIV-protease inhibitors has been developed. The synthesis starts with protected L-phenylalaninols, which were converted to gamma-amino alpha, beta-unsaturated esters in a one-pot procedure. A highly diastereoselective epoxidation of the(More)
Elaboration of an optimized kinetic test for urinary alanine aminopeptidase at 37 degrees C is described. As final concentrations, 50 mmol/L tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane x HCl buffer, pH 7.8, and 2 mmol/L alanine-4-nitroanilide are proposed. Five- to sixfold activitiy is obtained as compared with a generally used test procedure. Coefficients of variation(More)
We compared the diagnostic validity of five urinary enzymes--alanine aminopeptidase (EC 3.4.11.2), alkaline phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.1), gamma-glutamyltransferase (EC 2.3.2.2), N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (EC 3.2.1.30), and lysozyme (EC 3.2.1.17)--as indicators of acute rejection crises in renal-transplant recipients. In 82 patients (group A), the(More)
The influence of jejuno-ileal bypass surgery on mineral metabolism was studied in patients with morbid obesity before operation, and 2 and 5 years after-wards. When calcium and potassium were orally substituted post-operatively, in serum calcium fractions, parathyroid hormone, phosphate, potassium and the bone mineral content remained unchanged, while serum(More)
Calcium and oxalate were studied in daily, fasting and postprandial urine specimens from healthy subjects and patients with idiopathic renal calcium stones in response to a test meal free of oxalate, and supplemented with calcium and 14carbon-oxalic acid. The data showed that the amount of oxalate in fasting urine of patients with stones did not differ from(More)
Biomechanics research shows that the ability of the human locomotor system depends on the func-tionality of a highly compliant motor system that enables a variety of different motions (like walking and running) and control paradigms (like flexible combination of feedforward and feedback control strategies) and reliance on stabilizing properties of compliant(More)
To prevent the complications of ureteral and parenchymal ischemia it is important to revascularize all accessory and main branches of the renal arteries in kidney transplantation. 11 allografts underwent ex vivo microsurgical repair of injured polar arteries prior to allotransplantation, and 1 patient had an in situ repair. Three extracorporeal(More)
