A dose dependent suppression of daily cortisol excretion was shown in 25 children with asthma being treated with beclomethasone dipropionate. Cortisol metabolites tended to occur below the normal range when doses of beclomethasone of more than 400 micrograms/m2/day were given. Androgen excretion below the normal range was apparent in asthmatic children aged(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate effects on adrenal function of fluticasone, a recently released inhaled steroid preparation with lower systemic bioavailability than beclomethasone dipropionate. METHODS 34 children on high doses (400-909 micrograms/m2/d) of inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate or budesonide were recruited into a double blind, crossover study(More)
Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is a major determinant of graft survival in kidney transplantation. Survivin, an inhibitor of apoptosis that participates in the control of mitosis and cell cycle progression, has been implicated in renal protection and repair after I/R injury; however, no study has been performed in the transplant setting. We investigated(More)

BACKGROUND Clinical samples were distributed on 10 occasions to six UK laboratories that perform urinary steroid profile analysis. Urine samples were from normal adult men and women, normal children and neonates. Samples from patients with Cushing's syndrome, virilization, adrenarche, obesity and congenital adrenal hyperplasia (21 and 17-hydroxylase(More)
