Daily profiles of plasma 18-hydroxy-11-deoxycorticosterone (18-OH-DOC) were studied in four normal supine men on a normal sodium intake. Blood was taken every hour from 01.00 to 24.00 hours. Plasma cortisol (F) and aldosterone (A) were determined hourly for comparative studies. 18-OH-DOC fluctuated considerably during the 24 h period of investigation, the(More)
There is a large segment of modern jazz that does not fit any historical style and is very difficult to categorize. With this project we use exploratory network analysis to understand which artists have most influenced contemporary jazz artists, how contemporary jazz artists can be categorized, which artists are central in contemporary jazz, and if(More)
The present investigation was carried out on 17 male patients, 2 of whom nephrectomized, affected by terminal renal failure on regular 4 h dialysis three times a week. Plasma prolactin (PRL), aldosterone (PA) and renin activity (PRA) were determined by radioimmunoassay before, and after the 1st, 2nd and 3rd h of hemodialysis. High levels of PRL were found(More)
Diurnal 18-hydroxy-11-deoxycorticosterone (18-OH-DOC) pattern was studied with RIA technique in 33 hypertensive patients in supine position and on normal sodium diet. The compound was evaluated every 2 h from 0800-2000 h. Simultaneously, plasma aldosterone and cortisol were measured. Abnormal 18-OH-DOC behavior was observed in only 2 out of 4 patients with(More)
The response of plasma aldosterone (PA) and plasma renin activity (PRA) to ACTH stimulation (0.25 mg Tetracosactide infusion/10 h) and to insulin-induced hypoglycemia (0.1 U/kg b.w.) has been studied in 34 essential hypertensive (EH) patients. Corticotrophin stimulation increases significantly PA, the percent increase being higher in normal PRA EH patients(More)
Investigations were carried out on the behavior of 18-hydroxy-11-deoxycorticosterone (18-OH-DOC) in essential hypertension (EH) under exogenous administration of synthetic ACTH and insulin. 40 stable EH patients and 21 normal subjects were included in the study. The increase (12-fold basal values) in plasma 18-OH-DOC in normal subjects under Tetracosactide(More)
The present study was carried out in 25 hypertensive uremic patients on regular 4 h dialysis, 3 times a week. Plasma 18-hydroxy-11-deoxycorticosterone (18-OH-DOC), aldosterone (PA) and corticosteroids were determined by radioimmunoassay and competitive protein binding technique before and at the end of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd hour of hemodialysis.
