In order to elucidate some pathogenic factors of diabetic hyperzincuria we studied 60 adult insulin treated diabetic out-patients (40 males and 20 females), all with normal serum creatinine concentrations and absence of proteinuria during a 24-h period. Diabetic males and females both had significantly (p less than 0.01) increased zinc excretion rates (1.14(More)
BACKGROUND Heparin has anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activity which may be of therapeutic benefit in the treatment of ulcerative colitis. AIM To test whether low molecular weight heparin, given subcutaneously, would provide a significant therapeutic response compared with placebo in the treatment of mild to moderate ulcerative colitis.

In a Danish multicentre trial we compared the relapse preventing effects of olsalazine and sulphasalazine in patients with ulcerative colitis over a 12 month treatment period. Two hundred and twenty seven patients (118 men) with at least two previous attacks of ulcerative colitis were randomly allocated according to a prearranged treatment schedule to(More)
The distribution of total serum zinc between serum albumin and alpha 2-macroglobulin was evaluated by ultracentrifugation in patients with cirrhosis of the liver, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, or chronic renal failure. We found that the alpha 2-macroglobulin bound zinc fraction amounts to approximately 6 and 5% of the total serum zinc in patients(More)
Adiposis dolorosa or Dercum's disease consists of a painful progressive localized state of obesity with four cardinal symptoms: a) painful circumscribed or diffuse fatty deposits, b) generalized obesity in women usually of menopausal age, c) asthenia, weakness and frequently tendency to fatigue and d) mental phenomena including emotional instability,(More)
Liver and serum zinc concentrations were investigated in 24 patients with alcoholic liver diseases, 22 patients with non-alcoholic liver diseases, and in 36 control subjects. The liver samples were obtained by percutaneous liver biopsies, and the ratio of hepatocytes to fibrous connective tissue was estimated. The liver zinc concentration was expressed in(More)
The effect on intragastric pH of two different dose regimens of continuous intravenous infusion of omeprazole (4 or 8 mg/h after a bolus of 80 mg), and ranitidine (0.25 mg/kg/h after a bolus of 50 mg) was studied in 10 patients with duodenal ulcer disease in symptomatic remission. The pH was monitored over 24-hour periods during fasting in a cross-over,(More)
Serum zinc, albumin, alpha 2-macroglobulin, calcium, and magnesium were measured in 39 jejuno-ileal shunt-operated patients. The binding of serum zinc to albumin and alpha 2-macroglobulin were calculated. The results demonstrate that the patients as a group had a highly significant hypozincaemia (P less than 0.001), caused by a reduction of the(More)
