Influence of pH on reservoir mucosal absorption/-secretion and tubular and glomerular function. Studies in patients with a continent ileal reservoir for urinary diversion

Ten patients with a continent ileal reservoir for urinary diversion were studied regarding transmucosal fluxes of water and electrolytes at different pH. The urine was by-passed the reservoir via a Foley catheter. The experiment set-up was designed to exclude urine from reservoir mucosa exposition during the study. Test solutions of pH 4 and pH 7 with electrolytes and a non-absorbable volume marker (PEG MW 4000) were instilled into the empty reservoir. The influence of altered pH on the flow of water and Na,+K+ and Cl- across the reservoir mucosa was analysed. The maximal concentration ability after intranasal desmopressin (Minirin), the creatinine and Na-clearance as well as the fractional Na-excretion were calculated from measurements on the by-passed urine. The results showed a secretion of water, Na+ and Cl- into the reservoir while the K+ content was constant. The mucosal flows of water and electrolytes were not affected by alterations in reservoir pH. Maximal concentration ability appeared to be reduced compared to normals. Fractional Na excretion was within normal limits.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
