Ethanol pharmacokinetics were determined following oral ethanol, 0.5 gm per kg, in nine normal women and 10 normal men, and related to total body water measured by 3H-water dilution and body fat determined anthropometrically. Ethanol pharmacokinetics were similar in the females throughout the menstrual cycle. No variation was seen in mean peak blood ethanol(More)
Dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) is a functional imaging technique that assesses the physiology of tumour tissue by exploiting abnormal tumour microvasculature. Advances made through DCE-MRI include improvement in the diagnosis of cancer, optimization of treatment choices, assessment of treatment efficacy and non-invasive(More)
To confirm recent observations that some vitamin D deficient osteomalacic patients had low plasma creatinine concentrations, low urinary creatinine excretion, and a paradoxically low creatinine clearance, and whether these changes were due to vitamin D deficiency per se, these measurements were made in patients before and after vitamin D supplementation.(More)

The effect of copper chelation was studied in a group of children with intrahepatic cholestasis of childhood (IHCC) and increased liver copper levels. Initial therapy was D-penicillamine (10 mg/kg/day), being replaced by triethylenetetramine dihydrochloride (20 mg/kg/day) when side-effects of D-penicillamine occurred. Eight children completed two years of(More)
