To identify the structural change coincident with increased glomerular permeability in both adriamycin (ADR) and puromycin-aminonucleoside (PAN) nephrosis, we explored the temporal correlation between developing proteinuria, the reduction in glomerular polyanions, and the detachment of epithelium from glomerular basement membrane (GBM). Sprague-Dawley rats(More)
Puromycin aminonucleoside--(PAN) treated rats develop acute nephrotic syndrome, mimicking human minimal lesion disease. In PAN nephrosis, podocyte detachment from the glomerular basement membrane (GBM) is the most likely cause of massive proteinuria in this model. To elucidate further the mechanisms of PAN-induced cellular dysfunction, new methods were(More)
Candida glabrata is a well-known cause of lower urinary tract infections. Systemic infections caused by this organism are less common, but have increased dramatically in recent years. Prosthesis infection caused by C. glabrata is extremely rare. We report a case of prosthesis failure due to C. glabrata 5 y after candidaemia and pyelonephritis caused by this(More)
Sections of brain tissue from patients with Alzheimer's disease with amyloid deposits in vessels, in plaques, and within nerve cells were studied by means of an immunoperoxidase method using a specific antiamyloid P component (AP) antiserum. Amyloid deposits in vessels were found to be strongly positive for protein AP, whereas the Alzheimer's plaques and(More)
BACKGROUND Both EUS and ERCP sampling techniques may provide tissue diagnoses in suspected malignant biliary obstruction. However, there are scant data comparing these 2 methods. OBJECTIVE To compare EUS-guided FNA (EUS-FNA) and ERCP tissue sampling for the diagnosis of malignant biliary obstruction. DESIGN Prospective, comparative, single-blind study.(More)
A unique case of fatal necrotizing mediastinitis secondary to acute suppurative parotitis is reported. The infection was the result of synergistic necrotizing cellulitis caused by mixed aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first reported case of necrotizing mediastinitis resulting from a descending acute(More)
