Hemorrhagic cystitis is a well known complication of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and is normally attributed to the use of high-dose cyclophosphamide in the preparative regimen. Hemorrhagic cystitis occurring late after BMT is unlikely to be due to the effects of this conditioning, and probably has an infective etiology. Three patients(More)
Pleurotus citrinopileatus is a popular edible mushroom which is physiologically active in both humans and animals. In the study we investigate the effects of this mushroom on hyperlipidemic hamster rats. Four dietary forms of the mushroom were created as follows. The powdered dry fruiting body, hot-water extract, and two kinds of elutes were obtained, from(More)
The role of platelets in mesangial localization has been studied in Lewis rats following a single intravenous injection of colloidal carbon 32 mg/100 g body weight. Following carbon injection there was an abrupt thrombocytopenia (peripheral platelet count at 10 min 165 +/- 107 X 10(3)/mm3). Temporary sequestration of platelets in lung, liver and spleen was(More)
Homogenates of rat liver transaminate phenylpyruvate (PP), as well as alpha-ketoglutarate (alpha-KG), in the presence of L-tyrosine, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) or L-tryptophan. Aminotransferase activity with phenylpyruvate and DOPA, but not with tyrosine, was inhibited by excess phenylpyruvate. Tyrosine and DOPA aminotransferase activities with(More)
