Investigation of Gender Specificity of the Effects of Furosemide in Healthy Female and Male Volunteers
In this study the gender specificity of the effects of furosemide in female and male volunteers will be investigated. The healthy volunteers receive 1. furosemide and 2. aminohippurate sodium "PAH" as single dose. The main objective is gender-specific comparison of the pharmacokinetic parameters of furosemide in relation to the effect of furosemide (urinary excretion). Secondary objectives are the gender-specific comparison of renal and systemic PAH clearance with the clearance of furosemide and the influence of various genetic polymorphisms on the variability of furosemide pharmacokinetics.

46, Xx Testicular Disorders Of Sex Development
Congenital conditions in individuals in which male GONADS develop in a genetic female (female to male sex reversal).
A condition occurring in the female offspring of dizygotic twins (TWIN, DIZYGOTIC) in a mixed-sex pregnancy, usually in CATTLE. Freemartinism can occur in other mammals. When placental fusion between the male and the female FETUSES permits the exchange of fetal cells and fetal hormones, TESTICULAR HORMONES from the male fetus can androgenize the female fetus producing a sterile XX/XY chimeric "female"(CHIMERISM).
The female sex chromosome, being the differential sex chromosome carried by half the male gametes and all female gametes in human and other male-heterogametic species.
The male sex chromosome, being the differential sex chromosome carried by half the male gametes and none of the female gametes in humans and in some other male-heterogametic species in which the homologue of the X chromosome has been retained.
Urologic Surgical Procedures
Surgery performed on the urinary tract or its parts in the male or female. For surgery of the male genitalia, UROLOGIC SURGICAL PROCEDURES, MALE is available.
This 2 part study will select the subcutaneous(sc) dose of Herceptin which results in comparable exposure to intravenous(iv) Herceptin in healthy male volunteers and in HER2 positive femal...
This phase 1 study is an 8-day treatment period, randomized, controlled, double-blind, 3 parallel-groups, monocentric study. The primary objective is to evaluate the effect of naproxcinod...
This trial is conducted in the United States of America (USA). The aim of this trial is to investigate the safety, tolerability, efficacy and pharmacokinetics (exposure of drug) of '2-0453...
The rationale of this study is to assess whether or not food affects the absorption of GW273225 into the blood of healthy male and female volunteers in order to evaluate whether or not thi...
This study will consist of 4 parallel cohorts of healthy volunteers(elderly male, elderly female, young male and young female. Subjects will receive either GSK372475 1.5mg or placebo for...
BACKGROUND: Resistance to loop diuretics is common in patients with ascites. Diminished glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is thought to mediate resistance to loop diuretics. Midodrine, a commonly used...
We examined the effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) deficiency during development on sodium appetite. Being raised on an omega-3 PUFA deficient diet increased the intake of 0.5M NaCl f...
Hypertension and renal dysfunction can be programmed in the rat by prenatal exposure to a low-protein (LP) diet. Expression of the renal thick ascending limb (TAL) sodium transporter NKCC2 is up-regul...
AIM: Furosemide test is a simple and useful test of renal physiology usually used for evaluating the capability of the collecting ducts to secrete potassium under the effect of this drug. Its behaviou...
BACKGROUND: The objective of the present study was to verify whether chronic renal patients on hemodialysis (HD) with residual diuresis who were using small doses of furosemide present different level...
