BACKGROUND Most dialysis patients develop pruritus, for which current treatment is unsatisfactory. Endogenous opioids may be involved in this pruritus. We studied the effect of the opioid antagonist naltrexone on the pruritus of haemodialysis patients. METHODS Naltrexone 50 mg per day by mouth was given to 15 haemodialysis patients with severe resistant(More)
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) induced by severe sepsis can trigger persistent inflammation and fibrosis. We have shown that experimental sepsis in baboons recapitulates ARDS progression in humans, including chronic inflammation and long-lasting fibrosis in the lung. Complement activation products may contribute to the fibroproliferative(More)
The brain vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT2) is essential for neuronal monoamine storage and regulation of monoaminergic neurotransmission. We demonstrated previously a high degree of similarity between the pharmacodynamic characteristics of platelet and brain VMAT2. Opioids induce increase of dopamine release in limbic structures. In the present study(More)
