BACKGROUND The Ouabain and Adducin for Specific Intervention on Sodium in Hypertension (OASIS-HT) Trial was a phase-2 dose-finding study of rostafuroxin, a digitoxygenin derivative, which selectively antagonizes the effects of endogenous ouabain (EO) on Na+,K+-ATPase and mutated adducin. Rostafuroxin lowered blood pressure (BP) in some animal models and in(More)
Supplementary Methods Immunogold electron microscopy. The analysis was performed on rat renal tissue, fixed in a mixture of formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, and phosphate buffer, soaked in glucose and frozen, or alternatively embedded in Lowicril K4M resin minimal change nephrosis but not in focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. 11:403–412).

Penicillium marneffei is a thermally dimorphic fungus that causes severe human immunodeficiency virus-related opportunistic infection in endemic areas of Southeast Asia and has rarely been reported in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients. We report here the case of an Australian renal transplant patient who presented with disseminated P. marneffei(More)
Molti strumenti, basati su diverse tecnologie, sono in uso da alcuni anni per misurare la funzionalità piastrinica ex vivo. L’aggregometria a impedenza (multiple electrode aggregometry, MEA) è uno di questi sistemi di monitoraggio: l’aggregazione piastrinica nel sangue intero viene misurata dalle modifiche di impedenza elettrica causate dall’adesione delle(More)
α-and β-Adducin polymorphisms affect podocyte proteins and proteinuria in rodents and decline of renal function in human IgA nephropathy Abstract Adducins are cytoskeletal actin-binding proteins (α, β, γ) that function as heterodimers and heterotetramers and are encoded by distinct genes. Experimental and clinical evidence implicates α-and β-adducin(More)
