We documented changes in airflow obstruction and airway responsiveness to histamine after a period of 5 +/- 1 y in 40 subjects with mild to moderate asthma, 14 men and 26 women, aged 20-68 y (mean: 43.6 y). Asthma had to be stable at both evaluations. Each subject answered a respiratory questionnaire and expiratory flows and airway responsiveness to(More)
Young high-level athletes are frequently exposed to deficiencies, the most frequent origin of which is dietary. Supervision must be clinical, biological and dietary. Recommendations should be made individually, based on the nature and intensity of the exercise, and are calculated from the recommended supplements for the paediatric population. Protein,(More)

In mice, L-NCFM but not B-LBi07 induced colonic mu-opioid receptor (MOR) and cannabinoid(More)
Hereditary surfactant protein B (SP-B) deficiency has been lethal in the first year of life without lung transplantation. We tested the hypothesis that SP-B gene mutations may result in milder phenotypes by investigating the mechanisms for lung disease in two children with less severe symptoms than have been previously observed in SP-B deficiency.(More)
