The prodromal syndrome of radiation sickness is characterized by nausea and vomiting but the pathophysiology and the treatment of this entity is largely unknown. We investigated this problem by determining the effects of ionizing radiation on gastric function with and without administration of the dopamine antagonist domperidone. We measured gastric(More)
Thirty patients with anorexia nervosa and 30 controls had an electrocardiogram with the corrected Q-T interval. The aim of the study was to analyse the corrected Q-T interval in patients with anorexia nervosa compared with the findings in the control group, to compare the body mass index between two groups and to measure underlying dispersion of the(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of gamma-irradiation on soluble gastric mucus. Six conscious chair-adapted rhesus monkeys were studied once before and twice after exposure to ionizing irradiation (800 rads). Using a marker (99mTc-DTPA) dilution technique, acidic glycoprotein (AG), neutral glycoprotein (NG), ion, and fluid output were(More)
Effects of a metastatic and nonmetastatic tumor on radiocolloid localization in regional lymph nodes in the rat were studied in order to examine further the hypothesis that suppression of radiocolloid uptake results from inhibition of macrophage phagocytic function by tumor products. On the basis of data obtained in the present model using homogenates of(More)
The acute effects of gamma-irradiation on the gastric mucosa have been studied in a primate model. Fiberoptic gastroscopies were performed in 6 rhesus monkeys in the basal state as well as 3 h and 3, 7, and 9 days after total body irradiation (800 rads). Gastric biopsy specimens (diameter 1 mm) obtained during each session were examined using light(More)
A sample of 4210 subjects of both sexes aged 35-54 years was examined, chosen at random from six regions of Croatia. An electrocardiogram at rest was performed in all subjects and changes analyzed by the Minnesota code. A short P-R interval together with a widening QRS complex and a delta wave was found in 0.05%, while 42 (1.0%) of the examinees had a short(More)
The absorption of calcium and strontium from the gastrointestinal tract was determined in lactating rats between the 14th and 16th day of lactation using radioactive isotopes of calcium (45Ca and47Ca) and strontium (85Sr) both in thein vivo and in thein vitro experiments. The absorbed dose of strontium and calcium (expressed as the sum of the radioactivity(More)
