Carbromal intoxication: influence of hemodialysis and hemoperfusion

Abstract

It has been demonstrated with an in vitro model that hemoperfusion through Amberlite XAD4 or coated charcoal containing cartridges eliminates carbromal and its ureid derivatives more efficiently than hemodialysis. The following clearancs were measured in vitro (blood flow: 200 ml/min): Coil dialyser (1 m2): 55-85 ml/min, charcoal hemoperfusion 100-125 ml/min, Amberlite XAD4 hemoperfusion: 200 ml/min. The data of one patient who had been hemoperfused after the ingestion of 35 g Carbromal with the Haemocol cartridge (SMith & Nephews) are depicted. Our results permit to draw the conclusion that hemoperfusion at this time is the most efficient means to eliminate Carbromal from intoxicated patients.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
