The submucosally embedded in situ appendix guarantees an ideal continence mechanism in patients with ileocecal urinary reservoirs. To date this modification of the Mainz pouch technique has been performed successfully in 13 patients. The appendicocutaneous stoma was placed at the lower right abdominal quadrant in 12 patients and into the umbilical funnel in(More)
We used single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) to study 15 patients with Alzheimer's disease and nine controls. Iofetamine hydrochloride I 123 uptake data were recorded from the entire brain using a rotating gamma camera. Activity ratios were measured for the frontal, posterior parietal, posterior, medial, and lateral cortical temporal regions(More)
The study was carried out to investigate the effect of azelastine on the Substance P (SP) concentration in bronchoalveolar (BAL) and nasal (NAL) lavage obtained from atopic grass pollen asthmatics and non-atopic healthy subjects. In BAL and NAL fluids there was a significant elevation in the baseline concentration of SP between asthmatics and volunteers.(More)
119 patients with stage-IV renal cell carcinoma were treated using immunotherapy with autologous tumor vaccine. The immunization was carried out at monthly intervals, the patients were restaged every 3 months using X-ray, ultrasound scanning or computed tomography as well as bone scintigraphy in the follow-up. The patients' follow-up periods run from 6 to(More)
We describe the development of a new ELISA for the detection of neural endopeptidase (NEP). Neutral endopeptidase was determined in preparations of human granulocytes, mononuclear cells (MNC), and in serum. Human recombinant NEP was used as reference. Specificity of the mAbs was tested using APAAP, FACS analysis, and Western blot(More)
Most patients with immediate-type-hypersensitivity to natural rubber latex (NRL) give a history of hand eczema. Susceptibility to allergens is increased by irritant hand eczema due to damage to the skin barrier. Therefore, especially for employees in medical or paramedical professions, reduction in skin irritation is of importance. The present study reports(More)
The efficacy and tolerance of short-term immunotherapy (STI) by seven preseasonal injections of tree-pollen allergens (ALK7 Frühblühermischung) was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study with 111 rhinoconjunctivitis patients. Nasal and bronchial symptoms simultaneously analyzed, and nasal symptoms as a single end point, but(More)
The efficacy and tolerability of picumast dihydrochloride (3,4-dimethyl-7-[4-(4-chlorobenzyl)piperazine-1-yl]propoxycoumarin dihydrochloride) (2 mg twice daily orally) in comparison with ketotifen (1 mg twice daily orally) was investigated in 400 patients with bronchial asthma (picumast dihydrochloride n = 202, ketotifen n = 198) in a double-blind,(More)
We report the third case of lipodystrophia centrifugalis abdominalis outside East Asia. A 4-year-old Caucasian girl developed an area of bluish erythema on the left side of the lower abdomen which spread centrifugally to the umbilical and inguinal areas with depression of the skin resulting from the loss of subcutaneous fat, surrounded by an erythematous(More)
Localized vulval pemphigoid of childhood (LVPC) has previously been reported in six girls. Clinical features and immunopathological data have suggested it to be a morphological variant of bullous pemphigoid. Epitope targets of the autoantibodies of these patients have not been defined in detail. We describe a 9-year-old girl with possible cicatricial LVPC(More)
