Selenium level in plasma (P-Se) was slightly, but statistically significantly (2p = 0.02) lower in 25 lead-exposed secondary smelter workers (P-Se 1.09 +/- 0.02 mumol l-1, mean +/- SEM; blood lead level, B-Pb, 1.9 +/- 0.1 mumol l-1) than in 25 matched controls (P-Se 1.16 +/- 0.03 mumol l-1; B-Pb 0.2 +/- 0.01 mumol l-1). Further, there was a significant(More)
We examined three immunoassay techniques for measuring apolipoprotein B in serum and major lipoprotein density fractions from normolipidemic and hyperlipoproteinemic persons, comparing values by electroimmunoassay, radioimmunoassay, and radial immunodiffusion assay with those determined gravimetrically. Electroimmunoassay is faster and simpler than(More)
Eighteen healthy sedentary males took part in supervised bicycle training for 50 minutes three to five times a week. Twelve subjects (group A) trained for 6 weeks at heavy intensity, and six subjects (group B) trained for 12 weeks at moderate intensity. Maximal oxygen uptake increased by about 20% (P less than 0.01). Body weight and composition as well as(More)
A modified one-dimensional thin-layer chromatographic procedure is presented for the separation from tissues of five phospholipids (phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin) and three lysophospholipids (lysophosphatidylserine, lysophosphatidylethanolamine and lysophosphatidylcholine). This is(More)
Serum concentrations of apolipoproteins A-I, A-II, B, C-I, C-II, C-III and E were determined by electroimmunoassay in 56 patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) in the predialytic phase. The results were compared with those obtained in asymptomatic normolipidemic subjects, patients with type IV hyperlipoproteinemia, and patients with type II diabetes(More)
Twenty-three young women with insulin-dependent diabetes were randomly allocated to contraceptive treatment with either a progestogen only (Lynestrenol 0.5 mg) (LYN) or a combined oral contraceptive (OC) (ethinyl estradiol 50 micrograms + lynestrenol 2.5 micrograms) (EE + LYN). After six months treatment the medication was withdrawn for at least two months,(More)
