PURPOSE It is unclear whether protein supplementation augments the gains in muscle strength and size observed after resistance training (RT) because limitations to previous studies include small cohorts, imprecise measures of muscle size and strength, and no control of prior exercise or habitual protein intake. We aimed to determine whether whey protein(More)
The Belgian law relative to euthanasia prescribes that a physician performing an euthanasia has to complete a registration document and to send it within 4 days to the federal commission for control and evaluation of euthanasia. The 259 first documents are described in the report of the commission referred to Parliament on September 17, 2004. The present(More)
Eighty adult patients with microbiologically demonstrated staphylococcal infections were included in a comparative trial of cefamandole and cefamandole plus tobramycin. Patients with cefamandole-resistant pathogens were treated with vancomycin, if the initial therapy consisted of cefamandole, but were continued on cefamandole plus tobramycin if already(More)
This study aimed to examine the relationship between the ratio of the length of the second and fourth digits (2D:4D) and locomotor muscle strength. Furthermore, two putative mechanisms that might explain any relationship of 2D:4D with muscle strength, specifically serum total and free testosterone, and androgen receptor genotype CAG repeat number (AR CAGn)(More)
We set out to clarify whether in hospitals with a large volume morbidity and mortality rates after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) can be improved, whether the effects are consistent, and whether minimum recommendable caseloads can be inferred. We conducted a systematic review using MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL, and CINAHL and performed a hand search without(More)
Idiopathic acquired sideroblastic anemia is not a common disease. We studied the renal tubular function in such patients. Patients have lower calcium than controls (8.46 mg/dl +/- 0.59 vs 9.16 +/- 0.53). We have highlighted the multiple renal anomalies observed in patients with this type of hemopathy. The serum phosphate levels are lower in patients than in(More)
