BACKGROUND Novel peritoneal dialysis solutions are characterized by a minimal content of glucose degradation products and a neutral pH. Many studies have shown the biocompatibility of neutral lactate-buffered solutions; however, until now, the effect of purely bicarbonate-buffered solutions has not been intensively studied in vivo. METHODS This study was(More)
An implantable amperometric blood oxygen sensor was developed to improve rate adaptation of heart pacemakers. Two different working electrode materials in direct contact with the blood were tested, smooth glassy carbon and gold. Reference electrodes of Ag/AgCl and porous pyrolytic carbon were evaluated. A counter electrode being the titanium housing of the(More)

Reduced insulin sensitivity may occur even under normal physiological conditions, and is more pronounced in men than in women. The aetiology of type II diabetes, lipid disorders and hypertension is characterised by reduced insulin sensitivity. A new theory which has(More)
