Bone mineral density (BMD) measurement is a major outcome measure in osteoporosis. The BMD changes observed must exceed the variability inherent in the measurement process to be considered related to disease progression. The objective of the study was to estimate short-term variability of BMD measurement and to propose a cut-off value for the smallest(More)
The mannoglycoprotein fraction obtained by Concanavalin-A chromatography of human serum binds both androgens and estrogens with high affinity. Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) is a component of this fraction that binds both steroids, but the fraction may contain another component that binds only estrogen. We used several chromatographic methods to(More)
We investigated the contributions of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and glomerular filtration to creating the new metabolic balance of the hemoregulatory peptide N-acetyl-seryl-aspartyl-lysyl-proline (AcSDKP) that occurs during acute and chronic ACE inhibition in healthy subjects. We also studied the effect of chronic renal failure on the plasma(More)
