Effect of an endurance triathlon on pulmonary function.
We assessed the effect of an endurance triathlon consisting successively of a 3.8-km swim, a 180-km bicycle ride, and a 42-km run on the forced expiratory spirogram, indices of inspiratory andExpand

Analysis of Impaired Exercise Capacity in Patients with Cirrhosis
Exercise limitation in cirrhosis is typicallyattributed to a cirrhotic myopathy (without impairedoxygen utilization) and/or a cardiac chronotropicdysfunction. We performedExpand

End-to-side nerve coaptation: a qualitative and quantitative assessment in the primate.
There are several reasons why end-to-side nerve coaptation has not been widely adopted clinically. Among these are the putative damage inflicted on the donor nerve and the variable quality of theExpand

Response to symptom-limited exercise in patients with the hepatopulmonary syndrome.
OBJECTIVE To study the response to symptom-limited exercise in patients with the hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS). DESIGN The response to maximal cardiopulmonary exercise (CPX) was studied in 5Expand

Acidic fibroblast growth factor and keratinocyte growth factor stimulate fetal rat pulmonary epithelial growth.
We have shown that pulmonary epithelial growth and differentiation can occur if pulmonary mesenchyme is replaced with a mixture of growth factors [total growth medium (TGM)] that consists of adultExpand

Role of endogenous female hormones in hypoxic chemosensitivity.
Effective alveolar ventilation and hypoxic ventilatory response (HVR) are higher in females than in males and after endogenous or exogenous elevation of progesterone and estrogen. The contribution ofExpand

Prevention of bleomycin-induced lung injury in rats by keratinocyte growth factor.
Intratracheal instillation of bleomycin produces pulmonary fibrosis in rats. Alveolar type II cell proliferation is thought to minimize the fibrotic response after lung injury. Because keratinocyteExpand

Strain-associated differences in hypoxic chemosensitivity of the carotid body in rats.
Studies in humans indicate genetic effects on the ventilatory response to hypoxia, but the site of these effects is unknown. The present study explores the question of whether there are geneticallyExpand
