Comparing Absorption of Dietary Phosphorus When Administering FOSRENOL® or RENVELA® in Healthy Adult Volunteers

The purpose of this study is to compare the absorption of dietary phosphorus following a single dose with lanthanum carbonate (1000mg) and a single dose of sevelamer carbonate (2400mg).

Long-Term Therapy Outcomes When Treating Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Patients With Zemplar (Paricalcitol) in German Clinical Practice

The purpose of this study is to obtain data on the safety and effectiveness of Zemplar® injection and Zemplar® capsules in real-life clinical practice. In this study, Zemplar® will be p...

Study of Zemplar iv in Patients With End Stage Chronic Kidney Disease, Undergoing Haemodialysis

This is the post-marketing study conducted in two countries: Croatia and Serbia. In both countries Zemplar is the first injectable form of any Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) activator available ...

Pharmacodynamic Study of Two Lanthanum Carbonate Formulations in Healthy Adults

This study is being conducted to assess any potential differences in the absorption and excretion between two lanthanum carbonate formulations. This study is also being done to assess the ...

A Study of Zemplar® Injection and Hectorol® Injection on Intestinal Absorption of Calcium in Chronic Kidney Disease

Dynamics simulation of ammonia nitrogen absorption in a rural-urban canal on the Northeast China Plain.

To study dynamic laws of ammonia nitrogen retention in a typical rural-urban fringe canal, NaBr was selected as a conservative tracer agent, and NHCl as an additive nutritive salt to conduct an instan...

L-thyroxine malabsorption due to calcium carbonate impairs blood pressure, total cholesterolemia, and fasting glycemia.

Calcium carbonate was previously shown to interfere with L-thyroxine absorption. To estimate the magnitude of tablet L-thyroxine malabsorption caused by calcium carbonate, with resulting increase in s...

Primordial Non-Gaussianities and Zero-Bias Tracers of the Large-Scale Structure.

We develop a new method to constrain primordial non-Gaussianities of the local kind using unclustered tracers of the large scale structure. We show that, in the limit of low noise, zero bias tracers y...

A Novel Triple Tracer Approach to Assess Postprandial Protein Turnover.

Insulin and nutrients have profound effects on proteome homeostasis. Currently no reliable methods are available to measure postprandial protein turnover. A triple tracer method was developed using ph...

Polysaccharide-Based Aerogel Bead Production via Jet Cutting Method.

The aim of this work is to develop a method to produce spherical biopolymer-based aerogel particles, which is capable for scale-up in the future. Therefore, the jet cutting method is suggested. Amidat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method in which either the observer(s) or the subject(s) is kept ignorant of the group to which the subjects are assigned.

Variation in a population's DNA sequence that is detected by determining alterations in the conformation of denatured DNA fragments. Denatured DNA fragments are allowed to renature under conditions that prevent the formation of double-stranded DNA and allow secondary structure to form in single stranded fragments. These fragments are then run through polyacrylamide gels to detect variations in the secondary structure that is manifested as an alteration in migration through the gels.

A field of chemistry which pertains to chemical compounds or ions that do not contain the element carbon (with the exception of carbon dioxide and compounds containing a carbonate radical, e.g., calcium carbonate).

An in situ method for detecting areas of DNA which are nicked during APOPTOSIS. Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase is used to add labeled dUTP, in a template-independent manner, to the 3 prime OH ends of either single- or double-stranded DNA. The terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase nick end labeling, or TUNEL, assay labels apoptosis on a single-cell level, making it more sensitive than agarose gel electrophoresis for analysis of DNA FRAGMENTATION.

An enzyme isolated from horseradish which is able to act as an antigen. It is frequently used as a histochemical tracer for light and electron microscopy. Its antigenicity has permitted its use as a combined antigen and marker in experimental immunology.
