The lumbar herniated disk of pregnancy: a report of six cases identified by magnetic resonance imaging.
Although the mechanical and positional stresses of pregnancy are the primary inciting factors contributing to lumbosacral pain accompanying gestation, in approximately 1:10,000 cases a herniated diskExpand

Phosphorus restriction reverses hyperparathyroidism in uremia independent of changes in calcium and calcitriol.
Phosphorus is a well-known modulator of renal 1 alpha-hydroxylase activity. In early and moderate renal failure it is proposed that dietary Pi reduction ameliorates secondary hyperparathyroidismExpand

Extra-renal production of calcitriol in chronic renal failure.
Renal 1-alpha-hydroxylase activity is tightly regulated in normal humans and intact animals. No significant changes in serum 1,25(OH)2D levels occur in response to vitamin D challenge. However,Expand

The effects of intraperitoneal calcitriol on calcium and parathyroid hormone.
Parathyroid suppression by intraperitoneal calcitriol (1,25(OH)2D3) during peritoneal dialysis. The purpose of this study was to determine if parathyroid hormone (PTH) suppression could be achievedExpand

Prostaglandin hydroperoxidase-catalyzed activation of certain N-substituted aryl renal and bladder carcinogens
Certain carcinogens are thought to induce renal and bladder cancer following metabolic activation. We propose a model system for this activation and provide supporting experimental evidence. ThisExpand

Renal cortical drug and xenobiotic metabolism following urinary tract obstruction.
Renal cortical metabolism of drugs and xenobiotics was assessed with microsomes prepared from normal, contralateral and 4-day postobstructive hydronephrotic kidneys. Microsomal mixed-function oxidaseExpand

Effect of aspirin on metabolism of acetaminophen and benzidine by renal inner medulla prostaglandin hydroperoxidase.
The effect of in vivo and in vitro aspirin treatment on renal inner medullary prostaglandin hydroperoxidase-catalyzed metabolism of acetaminophen and benzidine was examined. Metabolism was assessedExpand
