The dopaminergic stabilizers pridopidine [4-(3-(methylsulfonyl)phenyl)-1-propylpiperidine] and ordopidine [1-ethyl-4-(2-fluoro-3-(methylsulfonyl)phenyl)piperidine] inhibit psychostimulant-induced hyperactivity, and stimulate behaviour in states of hypoactivity. While both compounds act as dopamine D2 receptor antagonists in vitro, albeit with low affinity,(More)
Iron absorption, bone-marrow smears and haematological parameters were repeatedly studied during pregnancy in 50 women. The same studies were repeated two months after delivery. The material was randomly divided into two groups. Twenty-four women were treated with 200 mg of ferrous iron daily while 26 were given placebo. The iron absorption was measured(More)

In earlier studies using the recently introduced extrinsic tag technique meals were carefully minced and mixed with the extrinsic tracer to ensure complete isotopic exchange. In the present paper the validity of simpler and more realistic techniques to label and serve composite meals was evaluated. Equal or almost equal absorption figures were found when(More)
The prevalence of iron deficiency was determined in Göteborg, Sweden, in a sample of 15- to 16-y-old girls (n = 220) and boys (n = 207) using serum ferritin (SF). In a recent study in women on the relationship between SF and stainable bone marrow iron, it was established that at a cutoff value for SF of < 16 micrograms/L in 75% of women with no iron stores(More)
