Glucocorticoid-induced alterations in the sodium potassium pump of the human erythrocyte.
The results suggest that administration of glucocorticoids leads to an increase in the number of Na-K pump sites, which may explain the low levels of intracellular sodium and higher cell potassium observed in steroid-treated subjects. Expand
The P2 Receptor Antagonist PPADS Supports Recovery from Experimental Stroke In Vivo
The persistent beneficial effect of PPADS on the functional parameters without differences in the late (day 28) infarct size and apoptosis suggests that the early inhibition of P2 receptors might be favourable for the maintenance or early reconstruction of neuronal connectivity in the periinfarct area after ischemic incidents.

Reset Osmostat and Salt and Water Retention in the Course of Severe Hyponatremia
To evaluate whether a reset osmostat and salt and water retention may be features of the course of some patients with hyponatremia, we present the long-term course of 6 selected patients. ThreeExpand
High flux hemofiltration.
These experiments suggest that it is possible in post-dilution hemofiltration to obtain small solute clearances comparable to those of hemodialysis without apparent deleterious effects. Expand
Effects of hypotonic saline loading in hydrated dog: evidence for a saline-induced limit on distal tubular sodium transport.
There is no limit on distal tubular sodium transport during mannitol loading and the major increment in sodium excretion develops during saline loading only after saline alters the capacity of the distal Tubule to transport sodium. Expand
Response to repeated frusemide administration on low chloride and low sodium intake in the rat.
Hourly data on all four diets indicate that frusemide always has an acute effect to promote both Cl and Na excretion, and daily changes in K and net acid excretion are determined, in part, by these opposing effects. Expand
Glucose-induced hyperkalemia in diabetic subjects.
Findings suggest that glucose-induced hyperkalemia is not infrequent in diabetics and that it is not usually associated with hypoaldosteronism, and that the acute responses of aldosterone to potassium loads may not be important in preventing postprandial hyperKalemia. Expand
Effect of chronic furosemide administration on hydrogen and sodium excretion in the dog.
It is suggested that chronic furosemide administration may enhance H excretion and generate alkalosis even in the absence of volume or electrolyte depletion and without increased aldosterone secretion. Expand
Carbon dioxide removal in acetate hemodialysis: effects on acid base balance.
The data presented suggest that multiple factors related to the removal of CO2 during acetate dialysis may be responsible in part for the low plasma bicarbonate observed in patients on chronic maintenance hemodialysis. Expand
