Dyslipidemia is frequent in patients with end stage renal disease. Excessive peritoneal glucose absorption from high glucose-containing peritoneal dialysis solutions may enhance disturbances on the lipid metabolism of patients on peritoneal dialysis. We compared the effect of icodextrin-based peritoneal dialysis therapy with hemodialysis (HD) therapy on lipid metabolism. A total of 157 non-diabetic patients on dialysis at least for 3 months; 78 patients on Icodextrin-based continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) (44 M, 34 F) and 79 patients in HD group (47M, 32F) were included into the study...

BACKGROUND: Recessive mutations in ABCC8/KCNJ11 of beta-cell K(ATP) channel generally cause severe medically unresponsive hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (HH). Rarer dominant mutations in these genes have been described that mostly cause milder, medically responsive congenital hyperinsulinism. Rarer dominant mutations in these genes have been described that mostly cause milder, medically responsive congenital hyperinsulinism. To date the phenotype of patients with dominant mutations seems to be different from those with recessive mutations as the majority of patients are responsive to diazoxide therapy...

Decreased high density lipoproteins (HDL) plasma levels are a recognized independent risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Attempts were therefore initiated to pharmacologically raise plasma HDL cholesterol, and the most impressive increase was obtained by inhibiting cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) by means of the synthetic compound torcetrapib. Clinical trials were however disappointing, as torcetrapib increased mortality and did not reduce the progression of atherosclerosis. According to some view, it was claimed that CETP inhibition is unfavourable and that development of this class of compounds should be abandoned...

In the second half of the 20th century a heterogenic group of opioid receptors was discovered and identified in the central nervous system and in peripheral tissues. However, micro-type opioid receptors, responsible for analgesic effect of endogenic and egzogenic opioids, were not found on majority of peripheral neurons. They appear in skin or mucous membranes with active inflammatory or neoplastic process due to intensive migration to peripheral nerve efferent fibres. These discoveries made it possible to apply opioid analgesics topically (ointments, hydrogels) on pathologically changed skin or mucous membranes...

Drug-induced esophagitis is being recognized increasingly in the past few years. Since 1970 more than 650 cases have been reported worldwide caused by 30 or more medications. We have reviewed these cases with a view to classifying this disease based on underlying pathological mechanism. Drug-induced esophageal injury tends to occur at the anatomical site of narrowing, with the middle third behind the left atrium predominating (75.6%). The disease is broadly classified into two groups. The first group being transient and self-limiting as exemplified by the tetracycline group induced injury (65...

Patients with congestive heart failure are at increased risk of hyperkalemia due to coexisting morbidities and usage of multiple medications that impair potassium excretion--such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or spironolactone. Because of the risk of this disturbance, knowledge of causation and prevention is mandatory. We described 3 patients with life threatening hyperkalemia (>8.5 mEq/t) caused by drugs. We showed the symptoms of increased potassium level, the list of medications and comorbidities predisposing to hyperkalemia...
