Mycophenolic acid (MPA) enhances the in vitro activity of abacavir (ABC) and other nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) against sensitive and NRTI-resistant HIV-1. This may occur via depletion of intracellular deoxyguanosine triphosphate (dGTP). Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) 500 mg twice daily was added as a single agent to the(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate prostate cancer detection and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) among men with benign prostatic hyperplasia treated with finasteride. METHODS Three thousand forty men 45 to 78 years of age with PSA less than 10 ng/mL and no history of prostate cancer were randomized in a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to finasteride (n = 1524)(More)
The first reported case of bilateral, simultaneous renal tumors of dissimilar cell type treated in a living patient is presented. The operative approach is outlined to support single in situ operative procedures in young patients. A second look laparotomy at 1 year and a creatinine clearance of 60 ml. per minute at 2 years substantiate our enthusiasm for(More)
We describe a new sphincter mechanism and its clinical application in 11 patients requiring continent diversion. The sphincter, composed of 2 short segments of ileum, is urodynamically responsive and actually increases its resistance to leakage when reservoir pressure or volume increases. Because of this dynamic continence control and its ease of(More)
There is strong epidemiological evidence of association between PM10 (particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to 10 microm) and adverse health outcomes including death and increased hospital admissions for cardiopulmonary conditions. Ambient PM10 surrogates such as diesel exhaust particles (DEP), a common component of UK PM10 have(More)
We report on a patient with a known diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the prostate who had acute renal failure. An excretory urogram showed bilateral ureteral obstruction and retrograde ureteral catheterization was attempted. Because the retrograde catheters could not be passed into the bladder percutaneous nephrostomies were placed immediately. Dissection of(More)
Patients with HIV taking protease inhibitors were selected for the presence (five subjects) or absence (five subjects) of lipoatrophy. Following an overnight fast, subjects were given oral (2)H(2)O in divided doses (5 mL/kg body water), [U-(13)C(3)] propionate (10 mg/kg), and acetaminophen (1000 mg). Glucose (from plasma) or acetaminophen glucuronide (from(More)
