We report a renal artery thrombosis in a 42-year-old man. Fasting homocysteinemia was at 23 micromol/l 3 months later and at 33 pmol/l 5 months after the vascular event. A homozygous C677T MTHFR was found with low folate status. Active smoking may also have contributed to the pathogenesis of renal arterial thrombosis. The other causes of thrombophilia were(More)
Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) is a solvent used to dissolve hydrophobic drugs. Recent studies have demonstrated that repeated administration of DMSO induces significant disorders of the peripheral nervous system. To address this issue, we have studied the behavioural effects of repeated intraperitoneal injections of various concentrations of DMSO (1.8-3.6-7.2%)(More)
