This study examined chronic and short-term stress effects on heart rate variability (HRV), comparing time, frequency and phase domain (complexity) measures in 50 healthy adults. The hassles frequency subscale of the combined hassles and uplifts scale (CHUS) was used to measure chronic stress. Short-term stressor reactivity was assessed with a speech task.(More)
The human monoclonal antibody SC-1 induces apoptosis of stomach carcinoma cells and is currently used in a clinical Phase II trial. The antibody binds to a target molecule that is preferentially expressed on diffuse-and intestinal-type stomach cancer cells and shows a very restricted expression on other normal and malignant tissues. In this paper, we show(More)
OBJECTIVE Hypertension is more frequent and more severe in older individuals and in African Americans. Differences in autonomic nervous system activity might contribute to these differences. Autonomic effects on the heart can be studied noninvasively through analysis of heart rate variability (HRV). We examined the effects of age and ethnicity on HRV. (More)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become an established diagnostic tool for the clinical assessment of retinal pathology but correlation of acquired signals with retinal substructures has often been ambiguous. In the monkey retina we have now obtained ultrahigh resolution (UHR) OCT images with 1.4 microm axial x 3 microm transverse resolution from(More)
PURPOSE To compare ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional images of the pig retina with histology, to evaluate the potential of ultrahigh-resolution OCT for enhanced visualization of intra- and subretinal structures. METHODS Ultrahigh-resolution OCT images were acquired with 1.4- micro m axial x 3- micro m transverse(More)
Increased cytokine and neopterin levels may be responsible for cancer-related fatigue, the most common complaint among cancer patients. We quantitatively reviewed empirical findings on this topic, focusing on studies not using immunotherapy. PubMed, PsychINFO and BIOSIS were searched for articles published until July 2006. Studies remained unweighted or(More)
This study addresses the correlation of retinal topography with factors such as the visual environment, life style, and behavior for a major mammalian group, the artiodactyls. To provide a broader basis for semiquantitative comparison, short-wavelength-sensitive (S)- and middle-to-long-wavelength-sensitive (M)-opsin cone receptor populations from 25 species(More)
In mammals, cone photoreceptor subtypes are thought to establish topographies that reflect the species-relevant properties of the visual environment. Middle- to long-wavelength-sensitive (M) cones are the dominant population and in most species they form an area centralis at the visual axis. Short-wavelength-sensitive (S) cone topographies do not always(More)
