Thirty-two Escherichia coli strains from 30 children with pyelonephritis were examined for their haemagglutination patterns and O and K serotypes. 29 (91%) of the strains showed mannose-resistant haemagglutination (MRHA). By use of well-defined target cells, these MRHA+ strains could be shown to recognise human cells either in a P-specific manner(More)
To gain further understanding of the peptic complications encountered in renal transplant surgery, 84 patients (19 with chronic renal failure on dietary treatment, 29 on regular dialysis treatment, 36 with a well-functioning renal transplant) were studied with regard to gastric acid secretion capacity and serum concentrations of gastrin and group I(More)
The mean concentration of free thyroxin (FT4) in serum, as determined by direct equilibrium dialysis, was decreased in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) and increased in patients with various other nonthyroidal illnesses (NTI). The mean concentration of dialyzable free triiodothyronine (FT3) in serum was equally low in both groups of patients.(More)
Serum concentrations of group I and II pepsinogens (PG I and PG II) were determined in 15 patients with chronic renal failure. Gastroduodenoscopy with biopsy and acid secretion tests were also performed. Five patients had histologically confirmed severe Brunner's gland hyperplasia manifesting as multiple polyps in the duodenal bulb. Five patients had a mild(More)
