Healthy men exhibit a differential hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) response to exercise stress and fall into two groups: high responders (HR) and low responders (LR). The present study examined whether HR to physical stress also exhibit higher HPA reactivity to psychological stress than LR. We examined 14 HR and 13 LR classified based on their(More)
Two studies, each utilizing short-term treadmill exercise of a different intensity, assessed the metabolic and hormonal responses of women to exercise in the morning (AM) and late afternoon (PM). In study 1, plasma concentrations of growth hormone, arginine vasopressin, catecholamines, adrenocorticotropic hormone, cortisol, lactate, and glucose were(More)
Dietary habits, nutrition knowledge, and gastrointestinal complaints were evaluated in 21 female and 50 male triathletes; 30 completed hemoccult slides to determine the frequency of gastrointestinal bleeding. Triathletes trained 11 h/wk with weekly distances of 5.3, 116.5, and 40.9 km for swimming, biking, and running, respectively. Mean daily energy intake(More)
Plasma zinc, iron, copper, and selenium and selected blood proteins were measured in 66 men before (BHW) and after (AHW) a 5-d period of sustained physical and psychological stress called Hell Week. Recovery blood samples were obtained from 26 men 7 d after Hell Week. Dietary intakes were determined BHW and during Hell Week; zinc, iron, copper, and selenium(More)
Ingestion of fluids providing carbohydrate and electrolytes extends endurance times during prolonged exercise. To understand the contribution of these factors, we examined hormonal, physiologic, and metabolic responses to ingesting water (W) or a 7% glucose polymer/fructose/electrolyte solution (GPFE) in 10 men (age: 30 +/- 2 yr, VO2max: 57.4 +/- 3.2(More)
The biological response to stress involves the activation of two main neuroendocrine components, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and the sympathoadrenal medullary systems. Looking at the responses to stressors in a laboratory setting, e.g., cortisol production after exercising on a treadmill, is a valid and controlled way to study how people react(More)
The nutritional status of 267 male US Navy Sea, Air, and Land (SEAL) trainees was assessed to determine dietary patterns. Diet records, blood samples, 24-h urine collections, and physical characteristics were analyzed. Energy intake was 3886 +/- 73 kcal/d (SEM) with 15.7 +/- 0.2, 42.9 +/- 0.6, and 41.2 +/- 0.5% of the energy derived from protein,(More)
INTRODUCTION Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is an opportunistic infection that causes substantial morbidity and mortality in transplant recipients. This pooled analysis of Wyeth clinical trials explored the incidence of CMV infection in solid organ transplant recipients treated with sirolimus versus comparator immunosuppressant drugs. METHODS Wyeth-conducted,(More)
To characterize fluid and ion shifts during prolonged whole-body immersion, 16 divers wearing dry suits completed four whole-body immersions in 5 degrees C water during each of two 5-day air saturation dives at 6.1 msw. One immersion was conducted at 1000 (AM) and one at 2200 (PM) so that diurnal variations could be evaluated. Fifty-four hours separated the(More)
Previous studies indicate that tyrosine may prove useful in promoting improved performance in situations in which performance is compromised by stress. To extend the generality of previous tyrosine findings, the present study examined the effects of tyrosine ingestion on performance during both a Multiple Task and a Simple Task battery. The multiple task(More)
