Adenosine deaminase (adenosine aminohydrolase; E.C. 3.5.4.4) has been purified 4686-fold from egg yolk. The procedure developed was used to isolate the enzyme from eight chicken eggs. An easily prepared affinity column employing purine riboside was used as the final step in the purification. The method developed permits the rapid isolation and a high(More)

The in-vivo survival of 51Cr-labelled murine red blood cells (RBCs) loaded with recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEpo-RBCs) was slightly lower than that of normal RBCs. Intravenous administration to normal mice of the encapsulated rhEpo shows the pharmacokinetic bicompartmental profile typical of the free rhEpo. Distribution and elimination half-life(More)
Twenty-nine patients in whom 180 degrees fundoplication was performed were studied manometrically before and 6-12 months and 6-13 years (mean 9.5 years) after operation. The resting pressure of the HPZ was 6.44 +/- 4.74 mmHg before operation, 12.72 +/- 6.17 mmHg at 6-12 months and 11.37 +/- 4.55 6-13 years later. The postoperative increase was significant(More)
