The esterolytic activity of mixed and parotid saliva in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients and normal subjects was determined using BAEE (alpha-Benzoyl-1-arginine-ethylester) as the substrate. Using soybean-trypsin-inhibitor the trypsin-like activity (TLA) was measured and plotted as a function of parotid flow rate. In addition calcium, protein and pH were(More)
Screening of 8918 pregnant women revealed that 107 (1.2%) were HBsAg-positive. 92 of them (50 of German and 42 of predominantly Asian origin) have already delivered and were followed up for 12 months together with their infants. 14 infants of HBeAg-positive (or anti-HBe-negative) carrier mothers received a single dose of hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG)(More)
UNLABELLED We report on our experiences on 336 patients suffering from manifest pleural empyema within a period of 10 years (1985-1995). Considering the pathogenesis, particularly the results of 218 patients with "parapneumonic pleural empyema" were analysed retrospectively. Definite healing could be achieved by chest tube placement and pleural irrigation(More)
The bicarbonate concentration in rat parotid saliva increases with increasing flow rates and approximates plasma values at highest salivation. At lowest flow rates the bicarbonate concentration in the secretory fluid markedly exceeds the plasma levels. Intravenous administration of acetazolamide has no influence on the bicarbonate excretion of the parotid(More)
pH, bicarbonate, sodium, potassium and lactate concentrations were measured in sweat from single human sweat glands. The interpretation of the results is that the gland duct reabsorbs bicarbonate from a bicarbonate-rich precursor fluid by means of proton excretion into the lumen. This process is carbonic anhydrase dependent and acetazolamide-sensitive.(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity and diabetes in mice can be modified by dietary variables. Here we systematically analysed the effect of the sucrose and fat content and of the fat quality in New Zealand Obese mice, a mouse model of the metabolic syndrome. RESULTS Male NZO mice fed a semi-purified diet with sucrose exhibited an identical weight gain and diabetes(More)
The transplantation of seven human small cell lung cancers (SCLC) into athymic nude mice resulted in the development of three tumor lines that are suitable for study of biology and for tests of new drugs and combinations. They were characterized and the response to known drugs was determined. An identical tumor response was observed in the nude mouse system(More)
BACKGROUND In-center intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD) is sometimes performed in elderly and multimorbid patients that have failed hemodialysis and that are unable to perform peritoneal dialysis (PD) at home. Complications, frequency of hospital admission, and survival are often claimed to be dismal although current data are lacking. METHODS We(More)
