["Spontaneous" bacterial peritonitis].
Biochemical basis of 5-aminolaevulinic acid-induced protoporphyrin IX accumulation: a study in patients with (pre)malignant lesions of the oesophagus.
Administration of 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) leads to porphyrin accumulation in malignant and premalignant tissues, and ALA is used as a prodrug in photodynamic therapy (PDT). To understand theExpand
A shift in balance between profibrinolytic and antifibrinolytic factors causes enhanced fibrinolysis in cirrhosis.
The aim of this study was to assess the cause of enhanced fibrinolysis in cirrhosis by studying the balance between profibrinolytic and antifibrinolytic proteins in 24 patients with mild or severeExpand
Phenprocoumon-induced hepatitis mimicking non-A, non-B hepatitis.
A 58-year-old man presented with jaundice 6 months after aortic valve replacement. Although non-A, non-B hepatitis was initially suspected, the final diagnosis of phenprocoumon (Marcoumar)-inducedExpand
Selective accumulation of endogenously produced porphyrins in a liver metastasis model in rats.
The possibility of using the porphyrin precursor 5-aminolevulinic acid to cause selective porphyrin accumulation in tumors was examined. Syngeneic colon carcinomas CC531 were implanted in the liversExpand
Body composition in growth hormone-deficient adults.
Body composition in a group of growth hormone (GH)-deficient adults was compared with a control group matched for age, sex, body height, body weight, and body mass index by using bioelectricalExpand
Prostanoid imbalance in experimental acute necrotizing pancreatitis in rats.
In an investigation of the pathogenesis of acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) the plasma levels of TXB2, 6-keto-PGF1 alpha, and PGE2 were measured in rats. After induction of ANP by injection of 5%Expand
Disseminated intravascular coagulation in liver cirrhosis.
UNLABELLED We measured thrombin-antithrombin III complex (TAT), soluble fibrin (SF) and D-dimer levels in 51 patients with liver cirrhosis to determine whether these tests provide new evidence forExpand
Assessment of response of esophageal carcinoma to induction chemotherapy.
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is currently considered the best available technique for the local staging of esophageal cancer. In a prospective study 11 patients with esophageal squamous cellExpand
Raised plasma thromboxane B2 levels in experimental acute necrotizing pancreatitis in rats. The effects of flunarizine, dazoxiben, and indomethacin.
The possible role of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) in acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) was investigated in rats. After ANP was induced by injecting sodium taurocholate (5% w/v) into the pancreatic duct,Expand
