Older men and women respond to local and reflex-mediated heat stress with an attenuated increase in cutaneous vascular conductance (CVC). This study was performed to test the hypothesis that an augmented or sustained noradrenergic vasoconstriction (VC) may play a role in this age-related difference. Fifteen young (22 +/- 1 yr) and 15 older (66 +/- 1 yr) men(More)
Weight-bearing activity provides an osteogenic stimulus, while effects of swimming on bone are unclear. We evaluated bone mineral density (BMD) and markers of bone turnover in female athletes (n = 41, age 20.7 yr) comparing three impact groups, high impact (High, basketball and volleyball, n = 14), medium impact (Med, soccer and track, n = 13), and(More)
This investigation examined effects of chronic (>/=2 yr) hormone replacement therapy (HRT), both estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) and estrogen plus progesterone therapy (E+P), on core temperature and skin blood flow responses of postmenopausal women. Twenty-five postmenopausal women [9 not on HRT (NO), 8 on ERT, 8 on E+P] exercised on a cycle ergometer(More)
Exercise, salt restriction, and/or dehydration causes transient reductions in renal function that may be buffered by vasodilatory prostaglandins (PGs). Over-the-counter (OTC) analgesics have the potential to alter renal hemodynamics by inhibiting renal PGs. Therefore, we tested the renal effects of the maximal recommended dose of acetaminophen (Acet, 4(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of repeated bouts of brief, intermittent, maximal effort exercise on the concentration of secretory IgA (S-IgA) and incidence of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) in females. Twenty-six non-smoking, active, adult females participated in this study. The exercise intervention consisted of three(More)
Previous research has linked exercise under unfavourable environmental conditions to decreased concentration and/or secretion rate of secretory immunoglobulin A (s-IgA). The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of moderate exercise in a thermoneutral (TN) and a cold (COLD) environment on the concentration of s-IgA and the secretion rate of(More)
A new method has been developed for the isolation and rapid identification of anthocyanins from two floricultural crops based on the use of high-voltage paper electrophoresis with bisulphite buffer. Using this method, anthocyanin pigments were successfully purified as their negatively charged bisulphite-addition compounds from crude extracts of plant(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about medication nonadherence in heart failure populations. We evaluated the association between 1 aspect of medication nonadherence, patient-reported difficulty taking medications as directed, and health status among heart failure outpatients, and then examined whether this association was explained by depression.
