Plasma cortisol levels and the response of the adrenal gland to 0.25 mg ACTH administration were measured in 12 patients receiving 15 mg or more of a short-acting steroid (fluocortolone or prednisone) on three out of four days, in 10 patients on daily steroid treatment (15 mg prednisone or more per day), and in 9 normal subjects. The basal plasma cortisol(More)
Twenty-four hour ambulatory blood pressure and heart rate profiles of 24 patients with diabetes were monitored in order to assess the effect of autonomic neuropathy on 24-h haemodynamic profiles. Eighteen patients had abnormal cardiovascular reflexes. Mean arterial pressure rose at night in six of the patients with autonomic neuropathy and fell by less than(More)
The effect of the long-acting beta-blocking agent bopindolol on renal function was assessed in 10 healthy normotensive volunteers and 10 hypertensive patients. The subjects received 1 mg bopindolol at 8 p.m. for 21 days. The following determinations were made at 8 a.m. on recumbent, fasting subjects before day 0 (D0) and 12 h after day 1 (D1) the first dose(More)
The case of a 25-year-old woman with coarctation of the thoracic aorta and combined bilateral fibromuscular dysplasia of the renal arteries is reported. Although marked hemodynamic changes induced by the coarctation were probably pre-existent, hypertension was revealed only during the last month of her first pregnancy and was spontaneously corrected 2(More)
Variations in night and day blood pressure were evaluated in 11 patients with essential hypertension. The instrument used (Pressurometer II) automatically records blood pressure every 15 minutes for a mean period of 22 hours and ECG tracings continuously. The mean values of arterial pressure and heart rate were significantly higher during day time than at(More)
The dye disodium 3,4:3',4'-bibenzo[b]thiophene-2,2'-disulfonate can be used as a molecular probe for the fluorimetric detection of caffeine in aqueous solution. The fluorescence response is attributed to non-covalent interactions of caffeine with the dye in the ground state and in the excited state. The bimodal interaction allows performing ratiometric(More)
The effect of bopindolol on circadian blood pressure and heart rate profile was evaluated by means of an automatic recording technique (Pressurometer II). Blood pressure and heart rate was measured every 15 min for 24 h in 11 ambulant hypertensive patients. Recordings were made after 2 weeks on placebo then after treatment for 4 and 8 weeks with single(More)
Autonomic failure reduces the physiological nocturnal decline of blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR). To assess the effect on circadian hemodynamic rhythms of sympathetic (s) and parasympathetic (ps) impairment in diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN), we measured BP automatically every 15 min and HR continuously for 24 hour in 11 diabetic patients. They(More)
