Natriuretic and phosphaturic response to diuretics after parathyroidectomy in dogs

European Journal of Pharmacology
J G KleinmanW Flamenbaum


Intact and acutely parathyroidectomized (TPTX) dogs were studied during hydropenia, volume expansion (VE), volume expansion plus ethacrynic acid (EA), and volume expansion plus acetazolamide (AZ). In intact dogs, VE produced marked increases in both Na+ and phosphate (Pi) excretion; in TPTX dogs, Na+ excretion increased but phosphaturia was minimal. Addition of EA increased Na+ but not Pi excretion in both groups. Discontinuing EA and substituting AZ in intact dogs produced a marked increase in Pi excretion compared to both VE and VE + EA. In TPTX dogs, AZ failed to increase Pi excretion compared to VE alone. The results suggest that increased distal Pi absorption in acutely TPTX dogs is not associated with NaCl reabsorption in the thick ascending loop of Henle or may occur at an alternative nephron site. Furthermore, the increased distal Pi reabsorptive capacity revealed by TPTX can overcome the increased distal Pi delivery produced by the superimposition of AZ on VE.

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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
