Tue overseas Guanidine Society is a synthesis of 3 teams of investigators: biologists learning guanidines as phosphagens, neurologists attracted to guanidines as convulsants and nephrologists concerned with guanidines as pollutants. As a member of the latter crew. i'm gratified through the substantial development this publication represents. first of all. there now seems to be a standard subject which unifies present hypothesis about the metabolic foundation of the guanidines in uremia. on the First overseas Congress in 1983, proof was once offered which supported the idea that sure guanidines have been items of the combined functionality oxidation of urea. This year's assembly brings jointly overwhelming facts displaying that methyl guanidine is an impact of energetic oxygen reacting with creatinine. An idolatry, worshipped all through biochemistry, that urea and creatinine are inert byproducts of protein metabolism, is proven to have ft of clay.
