Nephrotoxic effects in high-risk patients undergoing angiography.
Nephropathy induced by contrast medium may be less likely to develop in high-risk patients when iodixanol is used rather than a low-osmolar, nonionic contrast medium. Expand

Low osmolar contrast media (LOCM) are less nephrotoxic than high osomolar contrastMedia (HOCM) and cause fewer osmotoxic side-effects such as pain and heat sensations and result in better opacification of the urinary tract than LOCM. Expand
Renal and immunologic markers for chloralkali workers with low exposure to mercury vapor.
An effect of exposure on the kidney proximale tubule cells, possibly modified by individual selenium status, and an effect mediated by neutrophil granulocytes is indicated. Expand
Long-term blood pressure and renal function in kidney donors.
There is no evidence that uninephrectomy represents a long-term risk to the donors' health, and there was a moderate but significant increase in BP, and ten donors were hypertensive at the follow-up. Expand
Coadministration of grapefruit juice increases systemic exposure of diltiazem in healthy volunteers
It is demonstrated that a single intake of grapefruit juice caused a slight but statistically significant increase in the systemic exposure of diltiazem, which may be responsible for inhibition of intestinal metabolism and/or P-glycoprotein efflux transport. Expand
Kidney transplantation in patients older than 70 years of age.
Iodixanol in femoral arteriography (phase III): a comparative double-blind parallel trial between iodixanol and iopromide.
This comparison between iodixanol and iopromide showed both contrast media to be safe, effective and well tolerated and the only major difference between them was in their effect on femoral blood flow. Expand
Renal effects of trimethoprim in ciclosporin- and azathioprine-treated kidney-allografted patients.
It is concluded that even at the moderate dosage, as employed presently, TMP blocks tubular secretion of creatinine, suggesting a complete cessation of tubular Creatinine secretion by TMP. Expand
Pharmacokinetic interactions between microemulsion formulated cyclosporine A and diltiazem in renal transplant recipients
Diltiazem interacts significantly with the pharmacokinetics of CsA in the new microemulsion formulation of C’sA, however, Microemulsion-formulated C'sA did not show significant interaction with diltsiazem pharmacokinetically. Expand
