BACKGROUND & AIMS Circulating and peritoneal fragments of microbial DNA (bactDNA) are evidence for bacterial translocation in decompensated cirrhosis and may serve as a rational approach for antibiotic therapy when infection is suspected. METHODS Prospective multicenter study to investigate whether identification of bactDNA from blood or ascitic fluid(More)
The aim of this study was to study if accuracy in sensorimotor control and cortical activity was influenced after induced fatigue during a knee joint reproduction task. Twelve volunteers performed a sensorimotor task before, directly after and 60 min after a prolonged exhaustive exercise protocol. The task consisted of an active reproduction of a target(More)
BACKGROUND Radioiodine therapy (131I) for the treatment of hyperthyroidism has been shown to be effective and safe. Despite the extensive experience with radioiodine therapy, the necessity for pretreatment with antithyroid drugs is controversial. Pretreatment is partly based on the concept that antithyroid drugs deplete the thyroidal hormonal stores,(More)
We read with great interest the study of Harputluoglu et al. [1] on the potential association of nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-containing protein 2 (NOD2) variants with pathological bacterial translocation (BT) in patients with cirrhosis and ascites. In line with findings reported by our group [2], they observed an increased risk for(More)
A convenient plasmapheresis apparatus is the Plasmapur system (Organon Teknika). Recently the software of the Plasmapur monitor has been changed. We evaluated the modified Plasmapur monitor and two types of Plasmapur separators containing polypropylene membranes with a mean maximum pore size of 0.5 mum and 0.6 mum respectively. 50 plasmaphereses with(More)
A patient was presented with a non-gestational non-gonadal choriocarcinoma and hyperthyroidism. Five years earlier, at the age of 36, she underwent an abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral adnexectomy for endometrial carcinoma. Despite intensive treatment with multiple chemotherapy the patient died. We concluded that this non-gestational, non-gonadal(More)
We report a study of technetium-99m-labelled carboxymethyl-cellulose (99mTc-CMC) as a newly developed non-digestible marker of the solid phase of gastric contents. The radiosynthesis is simple and shows a high labelling efficiency. In vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrated stability of the marker in the gastrointestinal tract during the process of(More)
