Serum uric acid was measured in 586 normal subjects and 1,220 hospitalized patients. Hypouricemia was noted in 0.34% of the normal subjects and 2.54% of the hospitalized patients. Among hospitalized patients with hypouricemia, 22 were on medication, including allopurinol, anticancer drugs, antibiotics and glucocorticoids. Twenty-one patients had liver(More)
The extensive worldwide efforts of structural modification of natural pyrethrins for better performances have resulted in successful development of a wide variety of synthetic pyrethroids with tremendously high efficacy, knock-down activity or vapor action, and/or with acceptable environmental stability and safety. Currently these pyrethroids including(More)
To clarify the mechanism of gonadotropin imbalances and the differential response of rat and mouse testicular interstitial cells (Leydig cells) to procymidone, N-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)-1,2-dimethylcyclopropane-1,2-dicarboximi de, male Sprague-Dawley rats and ICR mice were fed procymidone in diet for 2 weeks at 0, 700, 2,000 and 6,000 ppm for rats, or 0,(More)
The mechanism of the carcinogenic or toxic action of BHA on rat forestomach was examined by studies on the excretion and tissue distribution of radioactivity in F344 male rats given tert-butyl- or methoxy-labelled 3-BHA orally. Within 2 days after a single oral dose of labelled BHA at 1 g/kg body wt, 87-96% of the 14C was excreted, mainly in the urine with(More)
When human erythrocytes were preincubated at 37-52 degrees C under atmospheric pressure before exposure to a pressure of 200 MPa at 37 degrees C, the value of hemolysis was constant (about 43%) up to 45 degrees C but became minimal at 49 degrees C. The results from anti-spectrin antibody-entrapped red ghosts, spectrin-free vesicles, and(More)
The mechanism of action of 2(3)-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (2-BHA or 3-BHA) on rat forestomach epithelium was studied by examining the metabolites of BHA in the stomach and the covalent binding of BHA to macromolecules in the forestomach epithelium. Male F344 rats 6 weeks old were given a single intragastric injection of 1 g/kg body wt of [tert-14C]-3-BHA(More)
Formation of DNA-adducts by 3-BHA or its metabolites, i.e., tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone (TBQ) and 5-methoxy-3-tert-butyl-1,2-benzoquinone (3-TBOQ), as well as DNA-adduct formation by 4-nitroquinoline-N-oxide (4NQO), in rat forestomach were examined by an enzymatic 32P-postlabeling assay. Four DNA-adducts were clearly detected in the forestomach after(More)
A 22-year-old man was found to have low serum urate concentration (1.1-1.7 mg/dl). His urate clearance was markedly increased (26.9-35.5 ml/min) and was not decreased after administration of pyrazinamide, but was even more increased after administration of benzbromarone. No other renal tubular abnormalities were detected. The young man has one sister and(More)
1. Cibenzoline, a class 1 antiarrhythmic drug, was studied on the effects upon the myocardial slow inward Ca2+ current (ICa) and the contractile force, and was compared with verapamil. 2. In voltage-clamp experiments with guinea-pig ventricular myocytes, cibenzoline caused a concentration-related inhibition of ICa (IC50 = 30 microM), whereas verapamil(More)
