Urinary TNF-alpha excretion correlates with proteinuria in patients with membranous nephropathy (MGN). Pentoxifylline suppresses or reduces the production of TNF-alpha. Between April, 1999 and August, 2000, we did a single-centre, prospective, pilot study to assess the effects of pentoxifylline (1200 mg/day) on proteinuria in patients with idiopathic MGN.(More)

The literature showed that PD can be as good a therapeutic option as haemodialysis (HD) for patients with PKD. However, no study has focused on the impact of(More)
Key words: acute renal failure; perirenal collection; White blood cell count was below 100/ml and fluid transplantation cultures were negative. Swelling reappeared twice after puncture and S-creatinine climbed each time to 2.5 mg/dl. Surgical intervention was carried out, firstly to explore this
PURPOSE OF STUDY To evaluate the effect of the angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonist, losartan, on post-transplant erythrocytosis. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the influence of losartan therapy on haemoglobin levels of renal transplant recipients. Twenty-eight patients who received losartan therapy to control hypertension were divided into two(More)
Sera from patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), a disease associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), were found to be cytotoxic at 15% degrees C in the presence of complement for a panel of human lymphocytes, with a higher frequency than those of matched controls. The cold lymphocytotoxic antibodies (LTA) responsible for this activity have the same(More)
