.... In two cases of acute intermittent porphyria with overwhelming neuropathy the maximum plasma levels of ALA were 9 and 12 μmol/l. Haematin infusion decreased the ALA levels but without obvious clinical benefit. Limited neurological recovery occurred without major reduction in plasma levels of ALA. 8. One...

Erythrocyte uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase activity has been measured in 27 patients with porphyria cutanea tarda, of whom 11 had a family history of overt porphyria cutanea tarda. 2. Eight patients from six families had erythrocyte...

...E. G. Astrup 1. Ten subjects with acute intermittent porphyria from three different families, and 92 relatives, were investigated for their erythrocyte uroporphyrinogen I synthase (EC 22.214.171.124) activities by the spectrofluorimetric method described and for their urinary concentrations of δ...

... concentration also rose but to a lesser extent than that in the non-siderotic rats. 4. Hexachlorobenzene-induced porphyria would seem to be attributable to inhibition or inactivation of hepatic uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase. Hepatic siderosis has a synergistic effect with hexachlorobenzene on this enzyme...
