Bioelectrical properties and anion secretion in cultured epithelia from different regions of rat and human male excurrent ducts were studied by measuring the short-circuit currents (ISC). In all regions of the rat excurrent duct, Cl- secretion accounts for over 90% of the basal ISC, although the magnitude varied in different regions. Cl- secretion was found(More)
BACKGROUND The peritoneal equilibration test (PET) is a useful assessment of peritoneal function in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. However, the natural course of longitudinal change in peritoneal transport is not well defined. PATIENTS We studied 105 unselected CAPD patients. Average age at enrollment was 50.7 +/- 11.3 years.(More)
The effect of flumazenil, a benzodiazepine antagonist, was assessed in a random, double-blind clinical study in which each of the four groups of surgical outpatients comprising 20 in each was given either ketamine 100 mg (K), etomidate 20 mg (E), thiopental 300 mg (T) or flunitrazepam 4 mg (F) for induction of anesthesia. On emergence, patients in each(More)
