Lanthanum carbonate treatment, for up to 6 years, is not associated with adverse effects on the liver in patients with chronic kidney disease Stage 5 receiving hemodialysis. - Clinical nephrology
The efficacy and tolerability of the phosphate binder, lanthanum carbonate, have been evaluated in long-term comparative studies and subsequent open-label extensions. Animal studies show that lanthanum has a very low bioavailability and absorbed lanthanum is primarily excreted in bile. A specified subset of data from four Phase III clinical trials and subsequent extension studies is presented, in order to assess the effects of lanthanum carbonate on the liver.Hepatic biochemical tests for alanine transaminase, aspartate aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin were performed. Adverse events classified as "liver and biliary system events" were recorded.In the four initial clinical trials, lanthanum carbonate was not associated with any adverse changes in transaminases or bilirubin. The incidence and nature of adverse events associated with the liver during lanthanum carbonate treatment was similar to that in the comparator groups. For patients who enrolled into the subsequent long-term follow-up study (up to 6 years of treatment), changes in transaminases were not clinically relevant and mean values were similar to those observed in the earlier trials. Overall, there was no increase in the incidence of adverse events associated with the liver reported after up to 6 years of treatment when compared with the results of the initial studies.There was no evidence of adverse effects of lanthanum carbonate on the liver in patients who received treatment for up to 6 years.
Aggressive adenoid cystic carcinoma with asymptomatic spinal cord compression revealed by a "curtain sign". - Journal of radiology case reports
The authors present a case of unusually aggressive adenoid cystic carcinoma of the head and neck. The patient presented with sciatica one year after initial diagnosis. She was otherwise asymptomatic. Complete work-up for bone involvement, included bone scan and MRI. The patient had painful osteolytic sacral metastasis and asymptomatic thoracic (T5) vertebral metastasis revealed by a typical curtain sign on MRI. The curtain sign, originally described by Trolard, is due to the displacement of the Trolard's membrane with the median ligament attaching the dura to the bone while there is a dorsal displacement and loosening of the posterior longitudinal ligament. The patient benefited from radiotherapy and did not develop respiratory distress, paraplegia or pain but died of liver metastases.
