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)
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)
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.

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)
A polymerase chain reaction assay (PCR) for the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori in human gastric biopsies was developed. To prevent false-negative results while performing PCR on human tissues, an internal control is necessary. Primer set ACT1-ACT2 which specifically amplifies a 542-bp fragment of the 16S rRNA gene of H. pylori was used. dUTP and hot-start(More)
