The mechanism of Ca2+ transport by various segments of the distal nephron was studied in vitro using the isolated perfused tubule technique. Calcium absorption in the distal convoluted tubule (DCT) and the granular portion of the cortical collecting duct (CCTg) was significantly enhanced in the presence of parathyroid hormone (PTH), 3 X 10(-2) U/ml. Na+ was(More)
Isolated cortical thick ascending limbs of Henle's loop were perfused in order to directly evaluate magnesium transport in this segment. Transepithelial potential difference was altered by varying the NaCl concentration in perfusate and bath and adding 50 microM furosemide to the perfusate. Perfusion under standard conditions with isotonic solutions(More)
UNLABELLED Over the past five years our pain practice encountered eight patients (5 female, 3 male) with chronic non-malignant pain syndromes, in whom any meaningful pain reduction via opioid analgesics (either by oral or systemic and/or intraspinal route) had resulted in profound nausea and/or vomiting despite generous use of available and/or affordable(More)
The mode and mechanism of phosphate transport in the light portion of the rabbit cortical collecting duct were studied with isolated tubular perfusion. Control studies (n = 48) revealed a mean transepithelial potential difference (PD) of -16.5 +/- 1.3 mV and net phosphate absorption (JPO4) of 0.58 +/- 0.07 To characterize transport, the(More)
INTRODUCTION Memantine was discovered in 1968 and is used as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease. We evaluated the use of memantine to treat complex regional pain syndrome in this retrospective study. PATIENTS AND METHODS 56 patients with CRPS, who were treated with trial of memantine for at least two months with 40mg QHS from 2007 until 2009. RESULTS(More)
