The disposition of paracetamol following an oral dose of 1.0 g was compared in 10 healthy volunteers, 7 patients with moderate chronic renal failure and 6 patients with end stage renal failure on maintenance haemodialysis. Paracetamol absorption was normal in the patients with renal failure. The mean plasma half-life of paracetamol from 2 to 8 h was similar(More)
Positive antibody reactions to brucella were observed in the sera of four llamas receiving Brucella abortus Strain 19 subcutaneously at 2-3 weeks post-exposure (PE) using five of eight conventional brucella serologic tests and an ISU-ELISA. Positive brucella antibody reactions were detected in sera of four llamas exposed by intraocular instillation (IOI) of(More)
Psychometric performance was studied in 17 patients maintained on CAPD. Nine patients treated with rHuEpo performed a battery of psychometric tests before treatment (haemoglobin mean (SD) 6.8 (0.8) g/dl) and after partial correction of anaemia (haemoglobin 9.0 (1.0) g/dl). The same battery of psychometric tests was administered to eight patients(More)
We have compared the disposition of oral paracetamol (1.0 g t.d.s. for 10 days) in 6 healthy volunteers and 6 conservatively-managed patients with chronic renal failure (mean plasma creatinine 451 mumol.l-1). Blood was sampled daily for 10 days before the morning dose of paracetamol. Each day the pretreatment plasma concentrations of paracetamol were higher(More)
BACKGROUND The number of patients starting renal replacement therapy (RRT) is increasing in England, as it is worldwide. Improvements in the management of chronic kidney disease (CKD) across communities to alter this trend are a public health priority. We have prospectively studied changes in the incidence and modality of treatment for end-stage renal(More)
BACKGROUND This multicentre, open-label prospective, randomized, comparative-group study evaluated the effects of maintaining haemoglobin (Hb) in pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. METHODS A total of 197 patients were randomized to start subcutaneous epoetin-alpha (SC-EPO; EPREX; 1000 U twice weekly) at an early stage of anaemia to(More)
Paratuberculosis was diagnosed in a herd of 62 fallow deer (Dama dama) and 38 sika deer (Cervus nipon) maintained in an animal park in Ohio. A comparison was made of delayed-type hypersensitivity responses, results of in vitro lymphocyte immunostimulation tests, and isolation of Mycobacterium paratuberculosis on fecal culture in 19 deer.
