Anaritide in Acute Tubular Necrosis
BACKGROUND: Atrial natriuretic peptide, a hormone synthesized by the cardiac atria, increases the glomerular filtration rate by dilating afferent arterioles while constricting efferent arterioles. ItExpand

Telavancin versus Vancomycin for Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia due to Gram-positive Pathogens
The results from two methodologically identical double-blind studies indicate that telavancin is noninferior to vancomycin based on clinical response in the treatment of hospital-acquired pneumoniaExpand

Prospective study of atrial natriuretic peptide for the prevention of radiocontrast-induced nephropathy.
Radiocontrast-induced nephropathy (RCIN) is a common cause of hospital-acquired acute renal failure and is associated with a high mortality rate. RCIN is potentially preventable, becauseExpand

Effects of a New Antibacterial, Telavancin, on Cardiac Repolarization (QTc Interval Duration) in Healthy Subjects
Telavancin is a rapidly bactericidal antibiotic with multiple mechanisms of action against gram‐positive bacteria. Preclinical and early clinical data suggested possible effects on cardiacExpand

Presence of Genes Encoding Panton-Valentine Leukocidin Is Not the Primary Determinant of Outcome in Patients with Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia Due to Staphylococcus aureus
ABSTRACT The impact of Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) on the outcome in Staphylococcus aureus pneumonia is controversial. We genotyped S. aureus isolates from patients with hospital-acquiredExpand

Cause of acute tubular necrosis affects its prognosis. The Auriculin Anaritide Acute Renal Failure Study Group.
BACKGROUND Acute tubular necrosis (ATN) is the most common type of acute renal failure in hospitalized patients and is associated with a high morbidity and mortality. The cause of ATN can be dividedExpand
