In rapidly growing male Sprague-Dawley rats with an initial body weight of 100 +/- 10 g, we investigated how alimentary magnesium (Mg) supply, Mg metabolism and ciclosporine (Ci)-associated nephrotoxicity are interrelated. Food with 100 ppm Mg (1Mg) or 1,000 ppm Mg (stMg) or 10,000 ppm Mg (rMg), Ci 20 mg/kg body weight daily or olive oil were applied for 3(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare a 1-h-version of a magnesium-loading-test (MLT) designed for outpatients in healthy controls with the 8-h standard; to establish the test in patients after renal transplantation prone to develop magnesium (Mg) deficiency; to correlate femur Mg-concentration and percentage retention of the given load. DESIGN Comparison of mean values(More)
