While radiographic lesions of the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) are common in patients with calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystal deposition disease, they are rarely accompanied by clinical symptoms. We report the case of a 69-year-old woman who presented with an acute sacoiliitis and a linear calcification in the right SIJ on CT scan. The patient(More)
Renal tubular sodium handling was investigated prospectively in 48 normotensive subjects, 53 untreated hypertensive patients, and 13 patients with white coat hypertension using endogenous trace lithium as a marker of proximal sodium reabsorption. A 12-hour daytime ambulatory blood pressure recording was performed in all patients to confirm the diagnosis of(More)
Prolactin radioimmunoassay was carried out before and 15, then 30 min after intravenous infusion of protireline (0.2 mg) in 3 groups of male patients: 7 with reactive arthritis (HLA B27: 6; age: 25 +/- 6.3 yr), 13 with ankylosing spondylitis (HLA B27: 11; age: 33.2 +/- 14.7 yr), 5 with psoriatic arthritis (HLA B27: 1; age: 28.8 +/- 6.3 yr). The same test(More)
Following a single-dose, open-label, pilot pharmacokinetic study in six subjects, the systemic pharmacokinetics and metabolic effects of dorzolamide after topical ocular administration were investigated in a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled study in 12 healthy volunteers. The subjects received a controlled diet on the 5 days before treatment(More)
A graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry method has been developed for the quantitative determination of submicromolar endogenous concentration of lithium in human plasma and urine using pyrolitically-coated graphite tubes in combination with ammonium nitrate matrix modification. This latter treatment could not completely abolish the interferences(More)
The early distinction between prerenal azotemia, characterized by an avid proximal tubular sodium reabsorption, and ATN, in which proximal tubule function is depressed, remains an important but difficult clinical task. Indices of acute renal failure based on urinary sodium excretion may be helpful but have several limitations, among which is the use of(More)
Electrothermal graphite-furnace atomic-absorption spectroscopy with pyrocoated graphite tubes, integrated platform and matrix modification was used to determine submicromolar concentrations of trace lithium in human red blood cells. Matrix-matched samples were used to establish calibration curves for concentrations up to 0.58 microM (addition-calibration(More)
