Large neutral amino acids (LNAA) have been used on a limited number of patients with phenylketonuria (PKU) with the purpose of decreasing the influx of phenylalanine (Phe) to the brain. In an open-label study using LNAA, a surprising decline of blood Phe concentration was found in patients with PKU in metabolic treatment centres in Russia, the Ukraine, and(More)
Large neutral amino acids (LNAAs) have been used on a limited number of patients with phenylketonuria (PKU) with the purpose of decreasing the influx of phenylalanine (Phe) to the brain. In earlier studies on mice with PKU (ENU2/ENU2), LNAAs were given and a surprising decline in blood Phe concentrations was observed. The formula used in the mouse(More)

The present investigation compares the frequency of adverse pregnancy complications and outcomes in 90 women who worked with various organic solvents during pregnancy and in 180 unexposed matched (2:1) subjects. Solvent-exposed women were approximately four times more likely to develop preeclampsia, a disorder of pregnancy characterized by hypertension,(More)
Two multicenter, randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled studies involving 451 adolescent and adult patients with mild-to-moderate asthma compared the efficacy and safety of salmeterol powder 50 micrograms twice daily with albuterol 180 micrograms four times daily or placebo (with albuterol as needed) for 12 weeks. Patients had forced expiratory(More)
