The purpose of this study was to compare duodenal ulcer healing, symptom relief, and safety of lansoprazole (a new proton pump inhibitor) given at doses of 30 mg and 60 mg, in the morning with ranitidine 300 mg at bedtime. Two hundred and eighty nine patients were enrolled over a 20 month period in a double blind randomised parallel group comparative study(More)
A new long-acting octapeptide analogue of somatostatin, Des AA1,2,4,5,12,13 D Try8 somatostatin, has been tested in 8 patients with pancreatic endocrine tumours. The analogue given subcutaneously suppressed the tumour-derived hormones in patients with insulinomas, glucagonomas, and gastrinomas for up to 24 h. The prolonged action appeared to be the result(More)
Neurotensin is a peptide recently discovered in the human ileum and it is released into plasma after ingestion of food. Neurotensin was infused intravenously into 12 healthy volunteers at a mean dose of 2.4 pmol/kg/min, the mean rise in plasma levels being 89 +/- 8 pmol/l. An inhibition of both gastric acid and pepsin output, and also a delay in gastric(More)
The ability to 25-hydroxylate vitamin D was investigated in thirty-nine patients with symptomatic primary biliary cirrhosis (P.B.C.). In seven previously untreated patients serum-25-hydroxy-vitamin-D (25-OHD) concentration increased after regular monthly injections of vitamin D. After a single injection of vitamin D in eight P.B.C. patients serum-25-OHD did(More)
Serum-25-hydroxy-vitamin-D (25 OHD) concentration has been measured in 106 patients with untreated parenchymal and cholestatic liver disease. Low mean values were found in groups of patients with alcoholic hepatitis and cirrhosis, non-cirrhotic active chronic hepatitis, lupoid and cryptogenic cirrhosis, symptomatic primary biliary cirrhosis, and acute and(More)
The intestinal absorption of (3H)cholecalciferol was studied in five patients with alcoholic liver disease, six patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, and 15 healthy subjects. The rate of appearance in plasma of (3H)cholecalciferol after oral ingestion and the subsequent appearance of (3H) polar metabolites in the alcoholic subjects were similar to those(More)
Percutaneous transhepatic portal-vein catheterisation was attempted to obliterate the major variceal venous supply in 13 decompensated cirrhotic patients, who continued to bleed after conservative therapy. Obliteration was achieved and bleeding stopped in 7 patients. In 5 patients obliteration was technically unsuccessful. The remaining patient had an(More)
