Enhanced responses of blood pressure, renal function, and aldosterone to angiotensin I in the DD genotype are blunted by low sodium intake.
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity is increased in the DD genotype, but the functional significance for renal function is unknown. Blunted responses of BP and proteinuria to ACE inhibitionExpand

Angiotensin converting enzyme insertion/deletion polymorphism and short-term renal response to ACE inhibition: role of sodium status.
Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACEi) inhibition retards renal function loss, but the therapeutic benefit varies between individuals. Renoprotection is poor in patients with the ACE DD genotype. ACEExpand

Effect of loxiglumide and atropine on erythromycin‐induced reduction in gallbladder volume in human subjects
This study was undertaken to investigate the effect of erythromycin, a motilin agonist with prokinetic activity, on fasting gallbladder volume. To evaluate the mechanism of action of erythromycin onExpand

Angiotensin-converting enzyme gene I/D polymorphism and renal disease
In recent years a vast amount of data has been published on the association between the insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism of the gene coding for angiotensin-converting enzyme and renal disease.Expand

Short-term moderate sodium restriction induces relative hyperfiltration in normotensive normoalbuminuric Type I diabetes mellitus
Aims/hypothesis. Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus is associated with an increased extracellular volume. Sodium restriction might seem a logical form of treatment but data on its renalExpand

Salt loading affects cortisol metabolism in normotensive subjects: relationships with salt sensitivity.
We studied cortisol metabolism together with insulin sensitivity [homeostatic model assessment (HOMA)] and renal hemodynamics in 19 salt-resistant (sr) and nine salt-sensitive (ss) normotensiveExpand

ACE polymorphism does not determine short-term renal response to ACE-inhibition in proteinuric patients.
BACKGROUND The renal response to ACE inhibition is known to vary between individuals. The ACE genotype is a determinant of the ACE concentrations in plasma and tissue, and therefore might affect theExpand

Diagnostic value of dumping provocation in patients after gastric surgery.
BACKGROUND In patients after gastric surgery it is often difficult to discern symptoms from dumping from other postcibal complaints. Strict criteria for dumping provocation test have not beenExpand
