Spectral analysis of the background activity of the EEG was performed in 295 healthy children, 4--11 years old, using the relative powers of theta (3.5--7.0 c/sec), slow alpha (7.5--9.0 c/sec) and fast alpha (9.5--12.5 c/sec) bands. Non-parametric regression functions of spectral parameters were estimated using Rosenblatt's method. The correlation with age(More)
Inborn errors of amino acid metabolism are frequently associated with growth disorders, the pathogenesis of which is unknown. We have performed arginine-insulin tolerance tests and measurements of circadian hormone secretion in patients with PKU (n=2), H (1), C (1), HU (4) and normal control children (4). Integrated mean GH, insulin and blood sugar levels(More)
EEG-results in 21 children with Phenylketonuria (PKU), put on a diet at least since their 3rd month of life, now aged 4 through 10 years, with normal psychomotor development, lacking abnormal neurological signs, are compared with the results in 796 healthy children of the same age. Visual evaluation and frequency analysis of the background activity of the(More)
In addition to the usual mangement of asthma the introduction of Beclomethasone-dipropionate aerosol can be considered as a progress in the long-term treatment of asthma, because in most cases oral and parenteral application of corticosteroids is no longer necessary. According to the results of many authors the wellknown side effects of steriod therapy have(More)
Evaluating plasma levels of cortisol and corticosterone after ACTH-stimulation, and the urinary metabolites tetrahydrocortisone and tetrahydrocortisol in asthmatic children it could be demonstrated, that in most cases there was no suppression of adrenal function following treatment over 6 to 18 months with a daily dose of 200 to 300 microgram beclomethasone(More)
