    Assessment of hypoproteinaemic oedema: a simple physical sign It is well known that hypoproteinaemia can cause pitting oedema. We have found that hypoproteinaemic oedema pits and recovers differently from other types of oedema but can find no reference to this in reports or texts on physical...

    Background. We have studied the possibility that low-dose treatment utilizing the inhibition that may occur between two drugs at the same site of human serum albumin (HSA) improves the pharmacological effects. The purpose is to elucidate the differences in the binding capacities of sites I and...
