The Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) Study examined the effects of dietary protein restriction and strict blood pressure control on the decline in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in 840 patients with diverse renal diseases. We describe a systematic analysis to determine baseline factors that predict the decline in GFR, or which alter the(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relations among proteinuria, prescribed and achieved blood pressure, and decline in glomerular filtration rate in the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease Study. DESIGN 2 randomized trials in patients with chronic renal diseases of diverse cause. SETTING 15 outpatient nephrology practices at university hospitals. PATIENTS 840(More)
Regional distribution of cerebral blood flow was assessed in a group of 13 normal social drinkers under baseline conditions and after acute alcohol intoxication. Blood flow measurements were done using 15O-labeled water and positron emission tomography (PET). Each subject underwent two control sessions under baseline conditions and two sessions after(More)
Patients with advanced renal disease randomized to the very low-protein diet group in the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) Study had a marginally (P = 0.066) slower mean glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decline compared with patients randomized to the low-protein diet group. The objective of these secondary analyses was to determine the(More)

Proteinuria and progressive renal insufficiency are the primary manifestations of diabetic nephropathy. Accumulating evidence suggests that these clinical features can be linked, at least in part, to pathologic changes in the glomerular extracellular matrix. Most evidence suggests that glomerular basement membrane thickening and mesangial matrix expansion(More)
PURPOSE To characterize uptake of 1-amino-3-fluorine 18-fluorocyclobutane-1-carboxylic acid ((18)F FACBC) in patients with localized prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and normal prostate tissue and to evaluate its potential utility in delineation of intraprostatic cancers in histopathologically confirmed localized prostate cancer in(More)
Transverse momentum spectra of charged hadrons with p(T)<8 GeV/c and neutral pions with p(T)<10 GeV/c have been measured at midrapidity by the PHENIX experiment at BNL RHIC in d+Au collisions at sqrt[s(NN)]=200 GeV. The measured yields are compared to those in p+p collisions at the same sqrt[s(NN)] scaled up by the number of underlying nucleon-nucleon(More)
Occurrence of cerebrovascular accidents has been associated with cocaine abuse. We investigated the relative distribution of cerebral blood flow (CBF) in groups of chronic cocaine users, and of normal controls. Relative CBF was measured using positron emission tomography and 15 oxygen-labelled water. The cocaine users showed areas of deranged CBF as(More)
