Exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) is known to decrease muscle strength and power but its effect on endurance performance is unclear. Thirty moderately trained adult runners (24 men and six women) were randomly assigned to EIMD or control. The EIMD group jumped 100 times from a 35 cm bench, while controls did not perform any muscle-damaging exercise.(More)
UNLABELLED Soccer induces neuromuscular fatigue requiring several hours of recovery. PURPOSE The study aimed to determine the extent to which neuromuscular fatigue occurs in high-level professional players and its recovery after a match and to examine its relationship with central and peripheral fatigue indicators. METHODS Maximal voluntary contraction(More)
Compliance in peritoneal dialysis is reported as being a significant problem. In CAPD, the percentage of non-compliant patients varies between 10 and 40%. In APD the phenomenon seems to be more limited, at 15% - 20%. We considered 23 patients who had been on APD for more than 3 months.The dialytic treatment was performed using the Home Choice Pro device to(More)
T-cell receptor excision circles (TRECs) and kappa-deleting recombination excision circles (KRECs) are circular DNA segments generated in T and B cells during their maturation in the thymus and bone marrow. These circularized DNA elements persist in the cells, are unable to replicate, and are diluted as a result of cell division, thus are considered markers(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the metabolic cost of running (Cr) on natural grass (NG) and artificial turf (AT), compared with a hard surface (HS), that is, asphalted track. Eight amateur soccer players (mean ± SD: age 22.9 ± 2.3 years, body mass 69.0 ± 4.7 kg, and height 178 ± 5 cm) completed 9 runs (3 surfaces × 3 speeds, i.e., 2.22, 2.78,(More)
This study analyzes the anthropometric and physiological characteristics of junior cyclists within different cycling specialties and different performance levels. One hundred and thirty-two junior riders (16.8 ± 0.6 years, 177 ± 6 cm, 66.3 ± 6.7 kg) were tested for anthropometric, aerobic and anaerobic parameters. Cyclists were classified within specialties(More)
BACKGROUND Professional soccer players are subjected to substantial physical loads during competitive seasons. We aimed to explore the changes induced by a soccer match on muscle damage and inflammation biomarkers, and their relationship with fatigue parameters. METHODS Twenty young male professional in-field soccer players from an Italian Serie A team(More)
Acupuncture is being increasingly used in Western medical practice. The various applications of acupuncture during labor are reviewed in this paper. This ancient therapeutic technique can be employed with a significant percentage of positive results to induce labor in post-term pregnancies, to strengthen uterine contractility and to favour cervical(More)
The excretion of cefotetan, a 7α-methoxycephalosporin, was studied in 27 patients undergoing biliary surgery. Pharmacokinetic parameters were determined after a single intravenous bolus dose of 1 g (10 patients) or 2 g (17 patients). Rapidly excreted in bile, cefotetan concentrations were considerably higher in bile [range: 92–2,594 mg·l−1 (1 g); 35–4,610(More)
BACKGROUND Peripheral fatigue in knee extensor (KE) and plantar flexor (PF) muscles were investigated following repeated-sprint ability (RSA) cycling and running tests. METHODS Both RSA tests involved 5x6 s sprints and peripheral fatigue was quantified using diverse electrical stimulations (1Hz, 10Hz, 20Hz, 50Hz and 100Hz). RESULTS RSA cycling induced(More)
