Acetylator phenotypes were determined with sulfamethazine in 114 healthy volunteers, 87 patients with immunogenic hyperthyroidism (Graves' disease) and 38 patients with disseminated thyroid autonomies. About 90% of the patients were females. No significant differences of acetylator phenotypes were observed between female volunteers and hyperthyreotic(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Our previous work showed that the performance of MDRD equations could be improved by modifying the original MDRD equation. However, during the modification we recognized that reference GFR (rGFR) distribution was not similar between the MDRD study and the Chinese Estimating GFR (eGFR) Investigation Study. This present study was designed(More)
A recent genome-wide association study of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) identified 1q32, which contains multiple complement regulatory genes, including the complement factor H (CFH) gene and the complement factor H-related (CFHRs) genes, as an IgAN susceptibility locus. Abnormal complement activation caused by a mutation in CFHR5 was shown to cause CFHR5(More)
2,191 patients with bland struma were treated with tri-iodothyronine and a mixed preparation (thyreotom) for at least 2 years. Several clinical criteria were used for judgement. A good result could be obtained in 78.3 to 51.2% depending on the size of the struma (I-III). While in diffuse strumata good results were obtained in 87.8 to 69.0%, in nodular(More)
