The dose-response relationships and pharmacokinetics of orally administered 1-desamino-8-D-AVP (DDAVP) were investigated. In water-loaded normal subjects marked reductions in urine flow rate and increases in urinary osmolality occurred. The responses were maximal 2 h after ingestion of 50, 100, and 200 micrograms, and lasted at least 6 h. Plasma DDAVP… (More)

A normal paediatric range of plasma alpha-amylase activity was determined using the Phadebas blue starch method. The range for children over one year was 98--405 IU/l.
