Nocturnal polyuria and natriuresis in male patients with nocturia and lower urinary tract symptoms.
PURPOSE We investigated the circadian variation in urine output, plasma angiotensin II, aldosterone, atrial natriuretic peptide, arginine vasopressin and blood pressure. MATERIALS AND METHODS WeExpand

Identification of 13 new mutations in the vasopressin-neurophysin II gene in 17 kindreds with familial autosomal dominant neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus.
Familial neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus (FNDI) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by progressive postnatal deficiency of arginine vasopressin as a result of mutation in the geneExpand

Vitamin D Insufficiency in Greenlanders on a Westernized Fare: Ethnic Differences in Calcitropic Hormones Between Greenlanders and Danes
We studied the influence of age, gender, latitude, season, diet and ethnicity on plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D 25 OHD, PTH, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, vitamin D-binding protein, bone-specific alkalineExpand

Abnormal vasoactive hormones and 24-hour blood pressure in obstructive sleep apnea.
BACKGROUND Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are at increased risk for hypertension. The mechanisms responsible for the development of hypertension are controversial. We hypothesized thatExpand

Abnormally increased endothelin-1 in plasma during the night in obstructive sleep apnea: relation to blood pressure and severity of disease.
BACKGROUND The mechanisms involved in development and maintenance of hypertension in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are not clarified. We hypothesize that patients with OSA have an abnormal nocturnalExpand

Effect of cholecalciferol supplementation during winter months in patients with hypertension: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial.
BACKGROUND Low 25-hydroxy-vitamin D (25(OH)D) levels are inversely related to blood pressure (BP) and have been associated with incident hypertension. In people living at northern latitudesExpand

Abnormal diurnal rhythm of plasma vasopressin and urinary output in patients with enuresis.
The diurnal variation of plasma vasopressin (AVP), urinary excretion rate, urinary osmolality, and serum osmolality was studied twice in 15 patients with enuresis and in 11 age, weight, and sexExpand

Natriuretic peptides in the monitoring of anthracycline induced reduction in left ventricular ejection fraction
The use of anthracyclines in treatment of cancer is limited by cardiotoxicity of these compounds and may lead to heart failure. Therefore monitoring of cardiac function is necessary during therapy.

Expansion of extracellular volume and suppression of atrial natriuretic peptide after growth hormone administration in normal man.
Sodium retention and symptoms and signs of fluid retention are commonly recorded during GH administration in both GH-deficient patients and normal subjects. Most reports have however, been casuisticExpand

Effect of potassium supplementation on renal tubular function, ambulatory blood pressure and pulse wave velocity in healthy humans
Abstract Background. Potassium is the main intracellular cation, which contributes to keeping the intracellular membrane potential slightly negative and elicits contraction of smooth, skeletal andExpand
