We describe a patient with recurrent thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) manifested solely by aphasia after influenza infection. The clinical diagnosis was not made during acute episodes, and during the intercurrent period the patient had features of chronic glomerular disease, including hypertension, proteinuria, RBC casts, and a nonspecific renal(More)
The effects of hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia on renal handling of sodium, calcium, and phosphate were studied in dogs employing the recollection micropuncture technique. Subthreshold sustained hyperglycemia resulted in an isonatric inhibition of proximal tubular sodium, fluid, calcium, and phosphate reabsorption by 8-14%. Fractional excretion of sodium(More)
The eyes of certain marine gastropods including Aplysia and Bulla, contain circadian pacemakers, which produce a circadian rhythm of autogenous compound action potential (CAP) activity. The CAPs are generated by the synchronous spike discharge of a distinctive population of retinal pacemaker neurons whose axons convey the CAP activity to the CNS. When CAP(More)
Two insulin-requiring diabetics with isolated hyporeninemic hypoaldosteronism cpontaneously developed hyperkalemia that was aggravated whenever blood glucose concentration rose. Acute glucose infusions raised the serum potassium concentration in these patients with combined insulin and aldosterone deficiency but lowered, or did not change, the serum(More)

The mechanism of action of CS-045, a new orally active antidiabetic agent, was studied in vitro using cultured hepatoma cells (Hep G2) and muscle cells (BC3H-1). Treatment of both types of cultured cells with varying doses of CS-045 did not significantly alter insulin receptor binding. Basal and insulin-stimulated glucose transport in BC3H-1 cells was also(More)
