An individual (male, 36 years, 87 kg) ingested two separate doses of di-n-butyl phthalate (DnBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DiBP) at a rate of ~60 μg/kg. Key monoester and oxidized metabolites were identified and quantified in urine continuously collected until 48 h post-dose. For both DnBP and DiBP, the majority of the dose was excreted in the first 24 h(More)
Differences in baseline polymorphisms between subtypes may result in development of diverse mutational pathways during antiretroviral treatment. We compared drug resistance in patients with human immunodeficiency virus subtype C (referred to herein as "subtype-C-infected patients") versus subtype-B-infected patients following protease inhibitor (PI)(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the clinical response of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients to intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIg), and whether the clinical response of IVIg treatment in SLE is accompanied by modification of SLE-associated autoantibodies/antibodies (Abs) and complement levels. METHODS Twenty SLE patients were treated with high-dose (2 g/kg)(More)
OBJECTIVE Genetic differences between subtypes of HIV-1, even when not associated with key resistance mutations, are known to affect baseline susceptibility to specific antiretroviral drugs and resistance-development pathways. We studied the prevalence and patterns of non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI)-associated mutations in HIV-1(More)
BACKGROUND Population-based epidemiological surveys in several countries have shown approximately 10- to 15-fold increased susceptibility to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated nephropathy (HIVAN) for populations of recent African ancestry. Accordingly, we sought to determine whether a similar or different pattern of susceptibility was evident(More)
Thirteen patients with rheumatoid arthritis (mean +/- SD age 55.8 +/- 10.5 years) received 20 mg of tenoxicam daily for 90 days following a 3-7 day "washout" period and 4 days of placebo treatment. Clinical evaluations were conducted at the end of the washout period and at monthly intervals thereafter. All-night polysomnography was performed in a sleep(More)
Severe myalgia is an uncommon feature of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). A patient is presented in whom acute myalgia and high fever were the sole clinical findings during an FMF attack. The ultrastructural picture of the muscle tissue during the acute stage was characterised by a large deposition of collagen fibrils. The myalgia subsided during(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to characterize the steady-state pharmacokinetics of everolimus and cyclosporine (INN, ciclosporin) when coadministered in de novo kidney allograft recipients during the first year after transplantation. METHOD This study was a multicenter randomized double-blind study of 101 patients who were randomly assigned 1:1:1 to receive(More)
OBJECTIVES Recent interest has been expressed in rheumatic manifestations in hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected populations. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and characteristics of the musculoskeletal manifestations and serological markers of autoimmunity in HCV-infected patients in Israel. METHODS Ninety anti-HCV-positive patients were(More)
