Streptozotocin produces diabetes in laboratory animals through the destuction of the pancreatic beta cells. The diabetogenic activity of STZ, however, is known to be modified by several agents such as nicotinamide, diazoxide, adrenergic blockers and petussis vaccine (PV). The present study was undertaken to observe the protective effect of PV or boiled pertussis vaccine (bPV; incubating the PV at 80 C for 30 mintues)...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1985;28(1):78-84.   Published online January 31, 1985
Adrenogenital syndrome is caused by a defect in biosynthesis of adrenal corticoids as a result of deficiency in one of the essential enzymes, most commonly 21-hydroxylase. About 50% of 21-hydroxylase deficiency have salt losing type as a result of aldosterone deficiency. We have experienced a casa of adrenogenital syndrome associated with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (salt losing form) in a 3...
