The increase in oral availability of felodipine and other commonly used medications when taken with grapefruit juice has been assumed to be due to inhibition of CYP3A4, a cytochrome P450 that is present in liver and intestine. To evaluate the effect of repeated grapefruit juice ingestion on CYP3A4 expression, 10 healthy men were given 8 oz of grapefruit(More)
It has been proposed that excessive intrarenal conversion of cortisol to 6 beta-hydroxycortisol by CYP3A may mediate increased tubular reabsorption of sodium, leading to a state of mild volume expansion and the clinical phenotype of salt-sensitive hypertension. Therefore, we characterized CYP3A activity in a bank of microsomes from human kidneys using the(More)
There is a marked variation between people in the activity of CYP3A4 in liver and intestine. We reasoned that if CYP3A4 was expressed in peripheral blood cells, a simple blood based test of CYP3A4 phenotype might be feasible. We prepared peripheral blood smears from healthy volunteers and performed immunostaining with a rabbit polyclonal antibody that(More)
Relationships between the acute toxicity of chemicals to fish (LC50) and rat (LD50) were analyzed using a Model II regression analysis after logarithmic transformation. (Model II regression assumes errors in both variables.) Significant correlations were found among bluegill and fathead minnow LC50S and rat LD50 values for the "priority pollutants." Fathead(More)
Rapid lymphocyte recovery after bone marrow or peripheral blood transplantation is associated with improved survival. However, the impact of early lymphocyte recovery has not been examined after umbilical cord blood transplant (UCBT). We evaluated lymphocyte recovery in 360 consecutive patients with hematologic malignancy that underwent UCBT between 2001(More)
Effective therapy for primary biliary cirrhosis is lacking but not for want of appropriate immunosuppressive, antifibrotic, and cupruretic agents. A consensus as to which agent, if any, to use has not been reached. Recent studies suggest that ursodeoxycholate may be both safe and effective. However, the long-term response to this hydrophilic bile acid is(More)
