Arginine

L Arginine/korean Ginseng/ginkgo Biloba/damiana Based Supplement


Presentation

  • We report three patients presenting to the emergency department with adverse effects. A 33-year-old man presented with palpitations, dizziness, vomiting, and syncope, after the use of NO(2) platinum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • P5CS deficiency has been reported in three families, with patients presenting with cutis/joint laxity, cataracts, and neurodevelopmental delay.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Two of these cases, both initially presenting with the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone, are presented. The second tumour was successfully identified using somatostatin receptor (octreotide) radiographic scintography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report the case of young man presenting with upper abdominal pain and increased serum lipase levels. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography confirms a mild acute pancreatitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present report, Brazilian female monozygotic twins with clinically typical central DI in whom biochemical and molecular characterization were carried out are described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Increased Birth Weight
  • Maternal plasma arginine concentrations are found to be lower in pregnancies complicated by fetal growth restriction, and arginine supplementation in later pregnancy is reported to increase birth weight.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Normal Stature
  • Spondyloarthropathy with normal stature and no ocular involvement were features of patients with the R75C, R519C, or R1076C mutation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Angioedema
  • Dose-dependent hyperkalemia, impairment of renal function (especially in renovascular hypertension), angioedema, and teratogenicity were derived from experience with other ACE-inhibitors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Both developed progressive neurodegeneration and peripheral neuropathy, joint laxity, skin hyperelasticity and bilateral subcapsular cataracts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nocturnal Polyuria
  • A 65-year-old man with MSA showed loss of C-AVP-R and nocturnal polyuria. We performed moxibustion at specific acupuncture points on the bladder and inside the feet, once a day, 3 times a week, for 6 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Premature Atrial Contractions
  • We searched for nutrient deficiencies that could cause cardiac arrhythmias [premature atrial contractions (PACs), premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), atrial fibrillation, and related sinus pauses], and found literature support for deficiencies[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Ischemic Changes
  • Positron emission tomography of the heart and a treadmill test revealed ischemic changes in the patient, which were improved by the L-arginine infusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Successive treatment cycles at the optimal biologic dose of 160 IU/m2 led to reduction in tumor size and serum alpha-fetoprotein levels. Sufficient tumor cytoreduction was achieved with ADI-PEG20,000 mw treatment to permit surgical treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • She remained free of attacks throughout the treatment period except when she stopped her treatment on two occasions during which she had recurrent cerebral metabolic attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Postexercise carbohydrate oxidation during the CHO/AA treatment was significantly reduced compared to the CHO treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment by oral creatine supplementation had no effect on the intractable seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • BACKGROUND: This research was aimed to study the expression of Serine/arginine rich splicing factor 2 (SRSF2) in tissues of hepatocellular carcinoma, and explore the relationship between the expression and the clinic pathological and prognosis of human[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common cancer of childhood, yet for patients with high risk or relapsed disease prognosis remains poor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Combined evaluation of these two parameters may be useful for assessing the prognosis of ADHF survivors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • PRMT5 overexpression has been linked to the progression of various diseases, including cancer, and is oftentimes associated with a poor prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • SRSF4 is associated with many physiological and pathological processes and has applications in the diagnosis and prognosis of specific diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • This case report suggests that every patient presenting with acute pancreatitis without obvious etiology should be evaluated for the intake of toxics other than alcohol, including L-arginine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The symptoms could be due to vasodilation from increased levels of NO, though other etiologies cannot be excluded. AAKG containing supplements may be associated with adverse effects requiring hospital admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The results of this study suggest that apoE (arginine 150 proline) is a novel apoE variant that etiologically related to LPG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Gov't MeSH terms Animals Astrocytes/drug effects Brain Damage, Chronic/etiology Brain Damage, Chronic/prevention & control Brain Edema/etiology Brain Edema/prevention & control Cells, Cultured Cerebral Cortex/cytology Drug Evaluation, Preclinical HEK293[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Background: A-β ketosis-prone diabetes (KPD) is a subset of type 2 diabetes in which patients have severe but reversible β cell dysfunction of unknown etiology. Plasma metabolomic analysis indicates that abnormal arginine metabolism may be involved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subsystems contributing to the decline in ability to walk: bridging the gap between epidemiology and geriatric practice in the InCHIANTI study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Epidemiologic data support the usefulness of dietary supplementation with l -arginine and B vitamins.[doi.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Mitochondrial angiopathy mediated by nitric oxide, a metabolite of L-arginine, is among the proposed pathophysiologic mechanisms of stroke-like episodes (SLEs) in MELAS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Clinical and pathophysiological aspects of this disease are shortly reviewed and discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Our study also illustrates the importance of pathophysiology-based treatment, individualized outcome assessment, and patient/family participation in rare diseases research.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Endothelial dysfunction and reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioactivity represent prominent pathophysiological abnormalities associated with hypertensive cardiovascular disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Cellular hypomethylation has been suggested to be a key pathophysiologic mechanism, since S -adenosylhomocysteine (AdoHcy), the Hcy metabolic precursor and a potent inhibitor of methyltransferase activity, accumulates in the setting of hyperhomocysteinemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Case histories of people with very frequent arrhythmias are presented showing 10-20g taurine per day reduced PACs by 50% and prevented all PVCs but did not prevent pauses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The DDAVP prophylaxis at the first delivery of our patient did not prevent the severe haemorrhagic sequeal requiring transfusion of packed red cells and platelets, but the same preventive measure was successful at her second childbirth.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Our observation suggests long-term safety and potential benefit of oral L-arginine and idebenone in the prevention of recurrence of SLEs in adult MELAS patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • To escape from this GBP1-mediated host defense, Shigella employs a virulence factor that prevents or dislodges the association of GBP1 with cytosolic bacteria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We want to highlight the need for good intravenous access and monitoring the drip site to prevent extravasation injuries that can be caused by arginine, which is a hyperosmolar solution.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
