The effect of methyl prednisolone therapy (PM) was studied in 18 children with severe idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (NS). Eight patients were defined as "corticosteroid-resistant" because there was no response to treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks of 2 mg/kg/day of prednisone; 10 patients had a corticosteroid-dependent NS with frequent relapses which(More)
A warming climate influences boreal forest productivity, dynamics, and disturbance regimes. We used ecosystem models and 250 m satellite Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data averaged over the growing season (GSN) to model current, and estimate future, ecosystem performance. We modeled Expected Ecosystem Performance (EEP), or anticipated(More)
In 36 children with nephrotic syndrome (NS) a significant decrease of their serum levels of the thymic-hormone--thymulin--was found, in parallel with a diminution of their mean blood zinc levels as compared to 33 control children. The serum level of thymulin normalized after the in vitro addition of ZnCl2. Similar results have previously been reported in(More)
