54 patients have been studied after paracetamol (acetaminophen) overdose. Liver-function tests and fasting serum bile-acids were measured daily; liver biopsy was done in all cases, and slides were examined "blind" to assess liver damage. The plasma-paracetamol was measured on one occasion. A histological abnormality was present in the livers of 53 of the 54(More)
We show here that osteoclasts possess an abundant level of focal adhesion kinase, a novel cytosolic tyrosine kinase with unique structural features that may play an important role in the action of pp60c-src, cell surface integrins, and hormonal peptides. The presence of focal adhesion kinase in the bone cell osteoclast was determined using monoclonal(More)
A convenient and rapid method for the photo-regulation of the proteolytic enzyme alpha-chymotrypsin is described. When alpha-chymotrypsin is coated with photolytic 1-(2-nitrophenyl)ethanol residues this not only markedly reduces the capability of the enzyme to digest both of the small substrates N-benzoyl-L-tyrosine ethyl ester and(More)
Using the clearance of microaggregated iodinated human serum albumin reticuloendothialial system (RES) phagocytic function was tested in 48 long-term renal allograft recipients and was found to be defective at the time of testing in 70%. Depression of RES phagocytosis could be related to total steroid dosage in the previous year and to the patients(More)
