Thiazide diuretics and calcium metabolism.
Abstract Thiazide diuretics reduce urinary excretion of calcium by about 40% in patients with intact parathyroid glands (normal parathyroid function or primary hyperparathyroidism). DespiteExpand
Neurohypophysial function in the toad Bufo marinus.
Abstract A method for ureteral catheterization of the toad without need of surgical incision is described. Changes of ureteral urine flow and osmolality as well as the rate of bladder urineExpand
Effect of adenohypophysectomy on salt and water metabolism of the toad Bufo marinus with studies on hormonal replacement.
Abstract Adenohypophysectomy caused a progressive, severe hyponatremia (plasma Na + concentration falling to 65% of the initial value after 20 days). There was a parallel decrease in the exchangeableExpand
The role of the urinary bladder in salt and water metabolism of the toad, Bufo marinus.
Abstract 1. 1. When Bufo marinus toads are kept out of water until they lose 7–12 per cent of their body weights the ratio of bladder urine to plasma osmolality approaches isotonicity ( U osm / P osmExpand
The influence of hypovolemia and curarization on the reabsorption of water from the intact urinary bladder of the toad, Bufo marinus.
Abstract 1. 1. The present work is a study on the role of “volume” receptors in the control of antidiuretic hormone release by the toad, Bufo marinus. 2. 2. The rate of reabsorption of water from theExpand
Lymph mobilization following acute blood loss in the toad, Bufo marinus.
Abstract 1. 1. Blood loss (3·5 ml/100 g) by the toad, Bufo marinus , results in a rapid hemodilution with falls in hematocrit of up to 50 per cent after 1 hr. 2. 2. There is no net change in totalExpand
Influence of tricaine methane sulfonate anesthesia on fluid and salt metabolism of the toad, Bufo marinus.
Abstract 1. 1. Tricaine methane sulfonate (Sandoz, MS 222) is an immersion anesthetic commonly employed in work of amphibians. 2. 2. Twenty-four hours after anesthetization with this drug BufoExpand
The novel use of very high doses of cabergoline and a combination of testosterone and an aromatase inhibitor in the treatment of a giant prolactinoma.
Most prolactinomas respond rapidly to low doses of dopamine agonists. Occasionally, stepwise increases in doses of these agents are needed to achieve gradual prolactin (PRL) reductions. ApproximatelyExpand
Hypercalciuria and Increased Plasma Renin Activity
Among the patients with primary aldosteronism studied in this clinic, two were observed with hypercalciuria. A 46-year-old man with primary aldosteronism resulting from an adrenal adenoma was foundExpand
