The kinetics of the disposition of intravenous and oral clonidine in five normotensive subjects have been determined. It is proposed that a two-compartment model adequately describes the disposition of the drug. The drug is rapidly distributed (t1/2alpha = 10.8 +/- 4.7 min) but slowly elimainated (t1/2beta = 8.5 +/- 0.9 hr). The bioavailability of oral(More)
Yet another form of tyrosinemia is described, in a young baby who developed metabolic acidosis and ceased to grow when weaned from breast milk onto a higher protein formula. Severe tyrosyluria and mild tyrosinemia cleared on a low-protein diet which also corrected the acidosis. However, restoration of growth required a normal protein intake with very(More)
Studies of eight patients with this syndrome confirm the characteristic pattern of abnormalities and the autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. The incidence is estimated to be approximately 1 in 100,000 live births. The liver lesion proved to be variable, with features of progressive parenchymal damage rather than a developmental defect of small bile(More)
An antibody is described which defines a new high frequency red cell antigen, Duclos, whose expression seems to require the presence of both U and Rh fundamental antigens. Apart from the antibody maker's own red cells the only nonreactive samples were from Rhnull U impaired individuals, one example of which was shown however to yield very slight amounts of(More)
A monoclonal antibody, 12E7, raised against lymphocytes from a patient with a T-cell acute lymphocytic leukaemia reacts strongly with cortical thymocytes and, to a lesser extent, with other human cells. The antigen defined by 12E7 is not expressed on mouse or hamster cells; this species specificity allowed us to investigate the genetics of the expression of(More)
We report a large Italian pedigree in which five out of six males are affected by a syndrome, following an X-linked inheritance pattern, characterized by ichthyosis, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, and anosmia. The concurrence of features of X-linked ichthyosis (XLI) with those of Kallmann syndrome, another disease often inherited as an X-linked trait,(More)
Two closely linked structural loci, D and 'CcEe', are proposed as the basis of the Rh blood groups. Mutation and unequal crossing-over between the two loci at meiosis are considered as possible explanations for some rare Rh complexes. The theory predicts that complexes arising from unequal crossing-over would be expected to have aberrant Rh polypeptides.
The recognition of the blood group system called Dombrock was reported in 1965 by Swanson and her colleagues. In 1967 Tippett gave an account of the genetics of the system which included an analysis of the linkage relations of the Do locus to other blood group loci, based on families tested in the MRC Blood Group Unit up to April 1966. The present account(More)
A screening method is presented involving the use of capillary gas chromatography using a BP-5 column and nitrogen-phosphorous detection. This method is a quick yet reliable procedure for a large range of neutral and basic drugs and uses 1 mL or less of blood. Running standards that contain a number of commonly observed drugs with each batch of cases allows(More)
