Urinary excretion rates of beta 2-microglobulin and albumin were measured in 43 male printing trade workers and 43 age-matched male controls before and during exposure to toluene, 382 mg/m3, for 6 1/2 hours in a climate chamber. There were no significant changes in renal excretion rates of albumin and beta 2-microglobulin during toluene exposure indicating(More)
Chronic effects of organic solvents on renal function were measured by creatinine clearances and urinary excretion rates of beta 2-microglobulin and albumin. Forty-three male printing trade workers occupationally exposed to different organic solvents for 9-25 years were compared with 43 age-matched male controls. No differences were found either in(More)
The diagnosis of pulmonary embolism was established during a 6-year period in 284 patients hospitalized in medical departments of a general hospital. Of the 183 patients who died, 178 were autopsied. A retrospective study was performed on the autopsy-verified fatal cases to correlate their clinical state to relevant postmortem findings. Two groups made(More)
The effect of a single oral dose (1 g) of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) on renal function and hepatic enzymes as well as prothrombin time was studied in two series of experiments on normal human volunteers. Radioimmunoassay of albumin and beta 2-microglobulin excretion rates in urine revealed a statistically significant increase in both beta 2-microglobulin(More)
