Ammonia detoxification by continuous venovenous haemofiltration in an infant with urea cycle defect. (1/4)

We report the case of a newborn baby with carbamoyl phosphate synthetase deficiency. He presented at 2 weeks of life, deteriorating to a state of hyperammonaemic coma and respiratory failure. Rapid detoxification was successfully achieved by continuous venovenous haemofiltration while a definitive diagnosis and treatment were determined. The ammonia clearance achieved by continuous venovenous haemofiltration was greater than 20 mL/min/m(2), which is superior to that achieved by peritoneal dialysis and arteriovenous haemofiltration in this age-group.  (+info)

Brain MR imaging in neonatal hyperammonemic encephalopathy resulting from proximal urea cycle disorders. (2/4)

We present brain MR images in three patients with neonatal-onset hyperammonemic encephalopathy resulting from urea-cycle disorders (two sisters with deficiency of the carbamyl phosphate synthetase I reaction step and one boy with an ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency). MR imaging revealed almost identical findings of injury to the bilateral lentiform nuclei and the deep sulci of the insular and perirolandic regions; to our knowledge, this pattern has not been previously reported. We hypothesize that these lesions presumably reflect the distribution of brain injury due to hypoperfusion secondary to hyperammonemia and hyperglutaminemia in the neonatal period.  (+info)

Clinical consequences of urea cycle enzyme deficiencies and potential links to arginine and nitric oxide metabolism. (3/4)

Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are human conditions caused by the dysregulation of nitrogen transfer from ammonia nitrogen into urea. The biochemistry and the genetics of these disorders were well elucidated. Earlier diagnosis and improved treatments led to an emerging, longer-lived cohort of patients. The natural history of some of these disorders began to point to pathophysiological processes that may be unrelated to the primary cause of acute morbidity and mortality, i.e., hyperammonemia. Carbamyl phosphate synthetase I single nucleotide polymorphisms may be associated with altered vascular resistance that becomes clinically relevant when specific environmental stressors are present. Patients with argininosuccinic aciduria due to a deficiency of argininosuccinic acid lyase are uniquely prone to chronic hepatitis, potentially leading to cirrhosis. Moreover, our recent observations suggest that there may be an increased prevalence of essential hypertension. In contrast, hyperargininemia found in patients with arginase 1 deficiency is associated with pyramidal tract findings and spasticity, without significant hyperammonemia. An intriguing potential pathophysiological link is the dysregulation of intracellular arginine availability and its potential effect on nitric oxide (NO) metabolism. By combining detailed natural history studies with the development of tissue-specific null mouse models for urea cycle enzymes and measurement of nitrogen flux through the cycle to urea and NO in UCD patients, we may begin to dissect the contribution of different sources of arginine to NO production and the consequences on both rare genetic and common multifactorial diseases.  (+info)

Survival after treatment with phenylacetate and benzoate for urea-cycle disorders. (4/4)

BACKGROUND: The combination of intravenous sodium phenylacetate and sodium benzoate has been shown to lower plasma ammonium levels and improve survival in small cohorts of patients with historically lethal urea-cycle enzyme defects. METHODS: We report the results of a 25-year, open-label, uncontrolled study of sodium phenylacetate and sodium benzoate therapy (Ammonul, Ucyclyd Pharma) in 299 patients with urea-cycle disorders in whom there were 1181 episodes of acute hyperammonemia. RESULTS: Overall survival was 84% (250 of 299 patients). Ninety-six percent of the patients survived episodes of hyperammonemia (1132 of 1181 episodes). Patients over 30 days of age were more likely than neonates to survive an episode (98% vs. 73%, P<0.001). Patients 12 or more years of age (93 patients), who had 437 episodes, were more likely than all younger patients to survive (99%, P<0.001). Eighty-one percent of patients who were comatose at admission survived. Patients less than 30 days of age with a peak ammonium level above 1000 micromol per liter (1804 microg per deciliter) were least likely to survive a hyperammonemic episode (38%, P<0.001). Dialysis was also used in 56 neonates during 60% of episodes and in 80 patients 30 days of age or older during 7% of episodes. CONCLUSIONS: Prompt recognition of a urea-cycle disorder and treatment with both sodium phenylacetate and sodium benzoate, in conjunction with other therapies, such as intravenous arginine hydrochloride and the provision of adequate calories to prevent catabolism, effectively lower plasma ammonium levels and result in survival in the majority of patients. Hemodialysis may also be needed to control hyperammonemia, especially in neonates and older patients who do not have a response to intravenous sodium phenylacetate and sodium benzoate.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: To study the pharmacokinetics of vancoymcin in critically ill patients with acute renal failure treated with continuous venovenous haemofiltration (CVVHF).. DESIGN: Open-label study.. SETTING: Hospital pharmacy centre and medical intensive care unit of the University Medical Centre Utrecht.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a laboratory setting, the sieving coefficient (s) of vancomycin by polyacrilonitrile (PAN) haemofilters of different surface areas was studied. In one patient, the pharmacokinetics of vancomycin were studied following a single dose of vancomycin. Another patient was treated with a vancomycin dosing regimen based on data from the literature, but high trough concentrations made dose reduction necessary after 24 h of withholding therapy. After two doses of 250 mg, serum and ultrafiltrate samples were collected for pharmacokinetic evaluation. INTERVENTIONS++: CVVHF with the following operational characteristics: blood flow 200 ml/min, ultrafiltrate flow 25 ml/min, ...

the basic problem itself is straightforward: RNase is an enzyme produced by the human body when it is attacked by viruses or bacteria. as the name implies, RNase denatures messenger RNA wherever it find its. as it comes in contact with the invading virus or bacteria, it destroys its RNA and thus kills the invader. this is a very quick-acting defense mechanism, unlike the slower production of T cells, B cells, etc., which can take days or even weeks, and thus is one of the bodys first lines of defense. in REDD, the mechanism that produces RNase is damaged by any number of causes, the most notable being environmental toxins. in 1985, in incline village, north lake tahoe, there was what has now become a very famous outbreak of REDD, where over 200 people came down with it (i was one of the lucky 200. treya and i were in tahoe recovering from her latest round of intensive chemotherapy). a widely circulated hypothesis is that this outbreak was triggered by a local toluene spill, but nobody really ...
Severe sepsis is the leading cause of mortality in critically ill patients. Abnormal concentrations of inflammatory mediators appear to be involved in the pathogenesis of sepsis. Based on the humoral theory of sepsis, a potential therapeutic approach involves high-volume haemofiltration (HVHF), which has exhibited beneficial effects in severe sepsis, improving haemodynamics and unselectively removing proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators. However, concerns have been expressed about the feasibility and costs of continuous HVHF. Here we evaluate a new modality, namely pulse HVHF (PHVHF; 24-hour schedule: HVHF 85 ml/kg per hour for 6-8 hours followed by continuous venovenous haemofiltration 35 ml/kg per hour for 16-18 hours). Fifteen critically ill patients (seven male; mean Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation [APACHE] II score 31.2, mean Simplified Acute Physiology Score [SAPS] II 62, and mean Sequential Organ Failure Assessment 14.2) with severe sepsis underwent daily PHVHF.

When part of the immune system malfunctions or is absent, an immune deficiency disease can develop. Immune deficiency diseases are bred either from an inborn immune system cell defect (primary immune deficiency disease) or from an extrinsic environmental agent (secondary immune deficiency disease). Example: AIDS is caused by an extrinsic force (HIV) and is therefore a secondary immune deficiency disease. Autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and lupus affect the tissue that connects the body tissue and organs, triggering a breakdown in the immune system ...
NIH clinicians have cared for people with unusual and difficult-to-treat immune disorders for decades," says NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. "This study exemplifies their commitment to improving the lives of people with these diseases by trying to uncover the causes of these disorders and thereby better understanding how to treat them.". Combined immunodeficiency is a type of primary immune deficiency disease (PIDD) in which several parts of the immune system are affected. This inherited disorder is characterized by increased susceptibility to bacterial, viral and fungal infections of various organs of the body. In some cases, susceptibility to cancers also may be seen.. There are 150 known PIDDs. Approximately 500,000 people in the United States have been diagnosed with a PIDD, while many more remain undiagnosed.. The NIAID and NCI investigators recognized that certain patients with an undefined form of combined immunodeficiency shared enough clinical features to make it likely that the ...

BACKGROUND:Hyperammonemia and a carnitine deficiency with concomitant encephalopathy have been reported to result from valproate administration. The reported incidence of hyperammonemia in children treated with valproate is 19%. OBJECTIVE: This study explores the feasibility of reversing Valproate Induced Hyperammonemic Encephalopathy (VHE) by discontinuing valproate and normalizing the carnitine level via L-carnitine supplementation.
This is a pilot study which will test the safety and feasibility of hypothermia treatment as adjunct therapy to conventional treatment of hyperammonemic encephalopathy (HAE) in neonates versus conventional treatment (dialysis, nutritional therapy, and ammonia scavenging drugs) only. The endpoint of the pilot study will be reached when either 24 patients have been enrolled and no serious adverse events were observed, when no patient has been enrolled in 5 years, or when serious adverse events occur which are clearly linked to the use of hypothermia. These would be serious complications not seen in patients on conventional therapy (dialysis , nutritional therapy, ammonia scavenging drugs) for HAE ...
We read with great interest the description by U-King-Im et al1 in the February issue of the American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR) of 4 patients with "acute hyperammonemic encephalopathy" on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). In the September 2010 issue of AJNR, we used a similar term of "acute hepatic encephalopathy" (most of the patients had hyperammonemia), and the terms could perhaps be considered interchangeable (notably, both would result in the acronym AHE).2 We thank them for describing their findings, which are similar to the cases we described that, in our opinion, lie at the severe end of the spectrum of AHE. Of particular note is that 2 of their 4 patients died. In our study, 3 of 5 patients died; they had a similar distribution on DWI, which we termed "diffuse cortical involvement.". U-King-Im et al1 limited this description to the cingulate and insular gyri, but review of their available images demonstrates the abnormalities to be more extensive than those 2 regions. We do not ...

Niacin is vitamin B3, We need reasonable amounts of it, not only to prevent pellagra, the vitamin B3 deficiency disease, but also cancer and heart disease.
Vitamin B6 is composed of pyridoxine and two closely related compounds. It is found in small quantities in many foods, though it can be destroyed in the cooking process. No clear deficiency disease has been recognised in humans as being directly caused by lack of this vitamin, since it is often found in conjunction with other B vitamins and their absence has greater effects. Its main role is in the conversion of some amino acids into other ones, depending on the requirements of the ...
Or, again, who is not familiar with the overworked anaemic girl, static and with visceroptosis, acne or seborrhoea, and oftentimes with vague psychoses, who ekes out a paltry wage for teaching, sewing, or selling, satisfying the cravings of her tissues principally with white bread, margarine, and tea?

Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.. It is now technically feasible to reproduce without the aid of males (or, for that matter, females) and to produce only females. We must begin immediately to do so. Retaining the mail has not even the dubious purpose of reproduction.

The mitochondrial enzyme encoded by this gene catalyzes synthesis of carbamoyl phosphate from ammonia and bicarbonate. This reaction is the first committed step of the urea cycle, which is important in the removal of excess urea from cells. The encoded protein may also represent a core mitochondrial nucleoid protein. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. The shortest isoform may not be localized to the mitochondrion. Mutations in this gene have been associated with carbamoyl phosphate synthetase deficiency, susceptibility to persistent pulmonary hypertension, and susceptibility to venoocclusive disease after bone marrow transplantation.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
NIH Rare Diseases : 50 irak-4 deficiency is a condition that affects the immune system (primary immunodeficiency). it causes recurring severe infections by a type of bacteria called pyogenic bacteria. individuals with irak-4 deficiency seem to be particularly susceptible to infections caused by bacteria called streptococcus pneumoniae. the deficiency is caused by mutations in the irak4 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. treatment may include intravenous immunoglobulin therapy (ivig), taking antibiotics before an infection develops, and vaccines. althought the infections can be life-threatening, they tend to occur less often as a person gets older. last updated: 9/20/2013 ...
There are two types of immunodeficiency diseases; primary and secondary.. Primary immune deficiency, caused by a genetic problem in the bodys defense system, is when the bodys immune defense system is missing a part or does not work correctly. Over 150 different primary immune deficiency diseases are known today with some occurring with greater frequency (selective IgA deficiency) while others are extremely rare (ADA deficiency). If a primary immune deficiency is not treated, it can cause serious illness and life-threatening infections. Present day, thanks to enhanced technology, doctors can recognize primary immune deficiency signs even earlier in order people can live close to normal lives with treatment. Previously, treatment options were limited and life expectancy was shorter for some of these individuals.. Secondary immune deficiency disease is when the bodys defense system is changed due to an external factor outside the body. Some examples include dialysis, burns, chemotherapy, ...
EXPANDED ABSTRACT KEY WORDS: * essential vitamins and minerals * DNA damage * aging * cancer Americans intake of the 40 essential micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and other biochemicals that humans require) is commonly thought to be adequate. Classic deficiency diseases, such as scurvy, beriberi, pernicious anemia, and rickets, are rare. The evidence suggests, however, that much chronic metabolic damage occurs at levels between the level that causes acute micronutrient deficiency disease and the recommended dietary allowances (RDAs).5 In addition, the prevention of more subtle metabolic damage may not be addressed by current RDAs. When one input in the metabolic network is inadequate, repercussions are felt on a large number of systems and can lead to degenerative disease. This may, for example, result in an increase in DNA damage (and cancer), neuron decay (and cognitive dysfunction) or mitochondrial decay (and accelerated aging and degenerative diseases). The optimum amount of folic acid ...
