  volume={55 3},
Eight patients (6 women and 2 men) with osteoporosis caused or aggravated by renal acidification defects are presented. Three of the female patients were premenopausal; the others were 9, 20 and 22 years postmenopausal, and two of them were on hormonal replacement therapy. Two patients had nephrolithiasis: one male with recurrent calcium phosphate stones and a left sided staghorn calculus, and one female with nephrocalcinosis due to medullary sponge kidney and hypercalciuria (patients No. 1 and… 
Prevalence and characterization of renal tubular acidosis in patients with osteopenia and osteoporosis and in non-porotic controls.
Incomplete RTA I may be prevalent in a significant proportion of patients suffering from osteopenia or osteoporosis, and the outcome of the frusemide test suggests either a defect of the H(+)ATPase in the cortical collecting tubule (CCT) or a defective Na(+) reabsorption in the CCT.
Prevention of contrast-induced nephropathy with Na/K citrate.
Alkalinization of urine using the Na/K citrate may reduce the incidence of Contrast-induced nephropathy, a frequent complication of many radiological procedures involving the application of contrast media.
Age-dependent renal expression of acid-base transporters in neonatal ureter obstruction
Results show that downregulation of protein expression is a time/age-dependent response to PUUO, which could contribute to the decreased net acid excretion and development of metabolic acidosis in neonatal rats withPUUO.
The Oxygen View of Osteoporosis : Bone Homeostasis is But One Face of Oxygen Homeostasis
  • Medicine
  • 2005
The Oxygen Model of osteoporosis is put forth that recognizes disturbances of oxygen homeostasis in the bone tissue as the fundamental energetic-molecular events that lead to bone loss clinically designated as osteopenia and osteoporeosis.
Renal acid excretion and intracellular pH in salt-sensitive genetic hypertension.
It is concluded that renal acid excretion is augmented in the salt-sensitive Dahl/Rapp rat and may be a marker of increased acid production by cells from subjects with salt- sensitive hypertension.
etabolic Alkalosis , Bedside and Bench
Although significant contributions to the understanding of metabolic alkalosis have been made recently, much of our knowledge rests on data from clearance studies performed in humans and animals many
Regulated expression of pendrin in rat kidney in response to chronic NH4Cl or NaHCO3 loading.
Results indicate that changes in pendrin protein expression play a key role in the well-established regulation of HCO(3)(-) secretion in the CCD in response to chronic changes in acid-base balance and suggest that regulation of pendrin expression may be clinically important in the correction of acid- base disturbances.
Dietary sodium chloride intake independently predicts the degree of hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis in healthy humans consuming a net acid-producing diet.
Data provide the first evidence that, in healthy humans, the diet loads of NaCl and net acid independently predict systemic acid-base status, with increasing degrees of low-grade hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis as the loads increase.
Direct action of aldosterone on bicarbonate reabsorption in in vivo cortical proximal tubule.
It is indicated that luminal or peritubular aldosterone has a direct nongenomic stimulatory effect on J(HCO(3)(-)) and on [Ca(2+)](i) in proximal tubule and that probably GR participates in this process.
