Cerebral edema remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with acute liver failure (ALF) and has been linked to elevated blood ammonia levels. L-ornithine phenylacetate (OPA) may decrease ammonia by promoting its renal excretion as phenylacetylglutamine (PAGN), decreasing the risk of cerebral edema. We evaluated the safety,(More)
A patient with the naevoid basal-cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is reported in whom non-aggressive neoplasms developed predominantly on the right side of the body. It is proposed that a post-zygotic somatic mutation is most likely to be responsible for the unilateral manifestation of the syndrome in this patient.
Eight patients and eight age matched controls were recruited to study parameters related to plasma lipoprotein metabolism in Alzheimer's disease based on previous studies in Down's syndrome (A.G. Lacko et al., Clin. Chim. Acta, 132 (1983) 133). The fractional rate of cholesterol esterification (% cholesterol esterified per hour) was 16% lower in the patient(More)
Patients who are considered for major pulmonary resection are normally evaluated by spirometry and clinical assessment. Despite this, the morbidity and mortality rates are high after these operations. We retrospectively reviewed results of lung resection performed during a period of 7.5 years in 237 patients to identify other important predictors of(More)
