Viral hepatitis with extreme hyperbilirubinemia, massive hemolysis and encephalopathy in a patient with a new G6PD variant

, : Viral hepatitis with extreme hyperbilirubinemia, massive hemolysis and encephalopathy in a patient with a new G6PD variant. Israel Journal of Medical Sciences 16(2): 130-133

Extreme hyperbilirubinemia, massive hemolysis and hepatic encephalopathy were reported in a G6PD-deficient patient with viral hepatitis. Investigation of the G6PD properties revealed that this patient's enzyme represented a hitherto undescribed variant (Bnei Brak), characterized by heat stability and a unique triphasic pH-related enzyme activity curve. It is possible that the marked hemolytic process in this patient was enhanced by a further decrease in the activity of the already deficient enzyme during acidosis.

The 3-(2-adamantyl)pyrrolidines 8a-g, 14 were synthesized and evaluated for activity against influenza A virus. The parent N-H compound 14 was several times more active than amantadine against H(2)N(2) and H(3)N(2) influenza A virus. The combined...
