We examined the urinary excretion of magnesium and zinc in 175 diabetics [19 insulin-dependent (type I) and 156 insulin-independent (type II)] and in 160 control subjects of the same origin by determining the ratio of the concentration of each of these metals to that of creatinine (creat). Electrothermal atomic absorption spectrophotometry was used for(More)
The urinary excretion of chromium, copper and manganese was determined in 185 diabetics and in an equal number of control subjects by measuring the concentration of each of these metals using electrothermal atomic spectrophotometry and dividing the values by the urinary concentration of creatinine (creat) in each subject. The mean (SEM) values for the(More)
Tumor biopsies obtained from 25 Saudi Arab patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) were examined for the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA detected by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and for the incidence of p53 mutations screened by a combination of PCR, single strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) and PCR-restriction fragment length(More)
The combination of mirtazapine and venlafaxine has been suggested as a treatment option for difficult to treat depressive illness. We describe 32 patients with persistent depressive illness (44% male; mean age 42 years; mean 2.5 previous antidepressant trials) that received mirtazapine and venlafaxine in combination at some point over the 3 year period(More)
