A comparison study of lipid and androgen metabolism with triphasic oral contraceptive formulations containing norgestimate or levonorgestrel
The results of the study support the reported safety and positive effects of norgestimate on lipid and androgen metabolism and show additional evidence of low androgenicity. Expand
'Pseudohypertriglyceridemia' caused by hyperglycerolemia due to congenital enzyme deficiency.
A 76-year-old man was found to have a false hypertriglyceridemia due to a 40-fold increased glycerolemia because of a deficiency in glycerol kinase, and the small number of this family's members did not allow to specify the mode of transmission of this genetic trait. Expand
Colonic ischemia reveals thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's disease).
Two years before the appearance of distal peripheral manifestations of thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's disease), a young man had acute peritonitis attributable to an ischemic perforation of theExpand
Efficacy and safety of simvastatin (alone or in association with cholestyramine). A 1-year study in 66 patients with type II hyperlipoproteinaemia.
The effects and safety of simvastatin, an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, were investigated alone or in association with cholestyramine in 66 patients withExpand
Comparative effects of prazosin and atenolol on plasma lipids in hypertensive patients.
When used in approximately equipotent doses for antihypertensive effect, prazosin and atenolol demonstrated different effects on lipid metabolism, which lowered total levels of cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and B-apolipoproteins, but increased the levels of high-density lipid fractions.

Effects of two antihypertensive agents on lipids, lipoproteins, and apoproteins A and B. Comparison of prazosin and atenolol.
A significant decrease in total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and apoprotein B were observed in patients receiving prazosin, whereas patients receiving atenolol exhibited opposite changes in plasma lipids, and such metabolic effects should be taken into account when evaluating the risk/benefit ratio of antihypertensive treatments. Expand
Comparative evaluation of the effects of ciprofibrate and fenofibrate on lipids, lipoproteins and apoproteins A and B.
Comparison of the 2 drugs at the optimal dosages, after 9 months of treatment, showed ciprofibrate to be more effective in increasing HDL cholesterol and apo A than fenofibrate, and no other significant differences in terms of either therapeutic efficacy or biological tolerance became apparent.

[Cutaneous localizations of disseminated Histoplasma capsulatum histoplasmosis in a case of acquired immunodeficiency].
A widespread maculo-papular cutaneous rash appeared on a HIV-positive young bisexual Cambodian man, who was treated for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Pneumocystis carinii infections, and despite initiation of therapy with amphotericin B the patient died. Expand
