BACKGROUND: Among many factors predisposing to monosymptomatic enuresis (MNE) disturbances in urinary electrolites excretion play an important role. Because of many controversies in this field there is a need to debate the role of hypercalciuria in MNE. The aim of our study was to determine the urinary calcium in children with MNE. METHODS: The investigation was conducted on 204 children (83 MNE children and 121 reference group). Urinary calcium excretion (in 24-h collection and per kg of body mass), Ca/creatinine ratio, Ca(2+) in urine sample and in 24-h collection of urine were estimated...

Ophiobolin B (OPH B), a sesterpene metabolite of Helminthosporium oryzae, inhibits proton extrusion from maize coleoptiles. Moreover OPH B counteracts the biological activity of fusicoccin (FC), another terpenoid toxin produced by Fusicoccum amygdali having a similar basic chemical structure: OPH B inhibits FC-promoted proton extrusion, potassium uptake and cell enlargement.The findings suggest that the effect of OPH B in stimulating electrolites, glucose and aminoacid leakage, reported in a previous paper, can be explained by the capacity of the toxin to inhibit proton extrusion...

HYPOTHESIS: Supporting cells have a crucial role in degenerative and regenerative events of primary sensorial hair cells of the organ of Corti. This new role should determine future studies about pathophysiology of hearing loss and its regenerative treatment. SUPPORTING EVIDENCE: Recent findings suggest an active role of supporting cells in the maintenance of hair cell function and structure. Evidences of high energy consumption and close proximity to auditory nervous fibers suggesting K+ active exchange, preferential expression of specific proteins and antigens, presence of glucocorticoids receptors, affinity for cisplatin and regenerative potential give the supporting cells an important role in homeostasis of the organ of Corti and in some specific diseases affecting this structure...

The ultimate goal of this report is to learn how to manipulate the level of memory T cells for more effective treatment of such neurological diseases as multiple sclerosis (MS), where certain T cell subsets recognize self-antigens as opposed to pathogen antigens, and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Brain lesions (electrolitically, by kainic acid, with AlCl, and with 6-OHDA); stimulations (electrical, magnetic, or pharmacological); or restoration of some neurological functions (thermoregulatory and behavioral) by fetal graft allotransplantations in bilaterally lesioned anterior hypothalamic area (AHA-immune regulation) and nucleus basalis magnocellularis (NBM-experimental AD) in our studies were designed to reproduce immune and cognitive deficits induced by lesions of these brain structures...

The use of bowel in urinary diversion has increased markedly over the last 15 years and this trend is expected to continue. Complications that have been noted in patients with urinary intestinal diversion occurring as a consequence of metabolic abnormalities include disordered electrolyte metabolism, osteomalacia, growth retardation, calculus formation, infection, abnormal drug metabolism. The factors that influence the intensity of absorption of urinary electrolites by intestinal mucosa include length of time of retention of the urine, concentration of solute in the urine, type of urinary diversion, quality of emptying, capacity of the reservoir, surface area of the bowel used, renal function, infection and chronic dilatation...

Prehospital care is a fundamental element for the patient's outcome, in the field of medical and surgical emergencies. There are different strategies about it, defined "scoop and run" and "stay and play". The choice among the different strategies, in our opinion, must be well-suited to the underlying pathophysiology of the illness. The best approach to the care of Acute Respiratory Failure is chosen on the ground of the possible and rapid reversibility of the pathology. Nowadays, classical semeiology is integrated by portable devices that allow the real time monitoring of pulse oximetry, electrocardiography, arterial pressure and heart rate, capnometry, blood gas analysis, serum electrolites, etc...

Arginine vasopressin (AVP) has been known to exert antidiuretic action at the kidney and some neuroactive effects. In order to examine the neural effect of AVP, it is essential to clarify the mechanism of BBB transport from intraluminal side to brain. Recent basic experimental data show the most possible mechanism for the transport of peripheral AVP across the BBB is binding of V1 receptor of AVP at the capillary luminal membrane and consequently transports AVP to neuronal cell and changes in permeability of amino acid, ion and water at the BBB...

BACKGROUND: Venous thromboembolic disease is a recurring reason for death, it is often well-known but sometimes misunderstood. The right treatment for this pathology should not follow one approach only, but several strategies with respect to the seriousness and extension of the several clinical pictures. In particular the pharmacological therapy tries to find the balance between risks and benefits. It is well-known that a weak treatment may cause an increase in the risk of the pathology extension or of recurrence; on the other hand, a therapy exceeding the well known ranges exposes to important hemorrhagic risk...

Recovery after thermal injury depends in great proportion on nutrition. A major problem is accounted in patients with facial burn, because they can not be nourished per vias naturales. Eliminating disadvantages of parenteral nutrition, but utilizing the advantages of enteral nutrition, we have tried a new method of treatment in a patient whose case is presented. On the second day after injury a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy was made. On the 7th day after injury and on the 4th day from the beginning of enteral nutrition complete intake of food and liquid was assured through the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostoma...

It is well known that disturbance of calcium homeostasis has a significant role in the development of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Our recent data suggest that acute treatment with the calcium antagonist verapamil can improve some behavioral deficits in an experimental model of AD. Therefore, the present study was done to establish the effect of chronically administered verapamil on cognitive and noncognitive behavior of rats with bilateral electrolitical lesions of nucleus basalis manocellularis (NBM)--an animal model of AD...
