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)
Stone analyses (kidney, upper urinary tract) of the department of Urology, University of Erlangen, from a four-year-period (1974–1977) have been recorded with emphasis to stone composition, sex and age of the pertinent stone forming patients. During this time period there were no substantial changes as regards the per cent frequency of the various stone(More)
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)
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) determinations in erythrocytes of patients undergoing chronic haemodialysis and with kidney transplants showed that patients receiving vitamin B6 had a smaller relative stimulation rate of AST by pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (P-5-P). In contrast to these results in erythrocytes, the apoAST and apo-alanine aminotransferase (ALT)(More)
Calves were immunised by means of a native Al(OH)3-absorbed gp51-preparation which had been obtained from a foetal lamb kidney cell line, following bovine leucosis virus (BLV) infection. 9 animals were immunised 3 times, using 300 micrograms gp51. 7 animals underwent test infection, using 2.5 x 10(3) or 2.5 x 10(4) BLV-infected lymphocytes. Serological and(More)
We determined the urinary excretion of the enzymes aminopeptidase (EC 3.4.11.2), alkaline phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.1), gamma-glutamyltransferase (EC 2.3.2.2), and N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase (EC 3.2.1.30) in two groups of renal-transplant recipients at different times after transplantation (1.8 months and 52 months, respectively). Both groups of patients(More)
A series of inhibitors of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) proteinase containing the 2-aralkyl-amino-substituted statine moiety as a novel transition-state analog was synthesized, with the aim to obtain compounds which combine anti-HIV potency with oral bioavailability. The reduced-size 2-aminobenzylstatine derivative SDZ PRI 053, which contains(More)
Spontaneous rupture of the transplanted cadaver kidney is not rare in the early posttransplant period. Experience with this complication in 22 of 364 kidney transplantations performed from 1968 to 1978 is reviewed. Rupture is associated with typical symptoms and immediate exploration is mandatory. If the diagnosis and surgical repair is delayed for more(More)
