Previous studies have failed to identify mutations in the Wilson's disease gene ATP7B in a significant number of clinically diagnosed cases. This has led to concerns about genetic heterogeneity for this condition but also suggested the presence of unusual mutational mechanisms. We now present our findings in 181 patients from the United Kingdom with(More)
Twenty patients undergoing treatment with aurothiomalate for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were studied for the presence of gold in all urine specimens passed over four days and for gold in the serum of blood drawn by venous section at 10.00, 16.00, and 22.00 hours on a single day of the study. Specimens of saliva collected at the same times as the blood(More)
The adult cerebral inflammatory form of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy is a rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disease, as devastating as childhood cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy. Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been demonstrated to provide long-term neurological benefits for boys with the childhood cerebral form, but results in(More)
Wilson's disease presenting as acute liver failure (ALF) is potentially fatal, and liver transplantation (LTx) is the only option. We report two patients with Wilson's disease and ALF treated with the Molecular Adsorbents Recirculating System (MARS). Both patients fulfilled criteria for poor prognosis. Because LTx was not available immediately in either(More)
X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) is a rare inherited metabolic disorder, in which accumulation of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) results in damage to the central nervous system. As the disease is X-linked, males are affected severely, but female carriers may also present with neurological symptoms. We report the case of a young adult female, who(More)
