Highly active antiretroviral therapy has improved the life expectancy of HIV infected patients, but, by extending survival, it permits the development of HCV cirrhosis. This study tried to(More)
Purpose: To characterize the blood lactate ([La]) behavior along a progressive protocol on treadmill, and to investigate the applicability of the Dmax model in detecting the lactate threshold (LT) and the sportive performance. Methods: Twenty-seven male athletes of regional level performed the Heck et al. protocol (1985) incremented every 3 minutes. The(More)
