Tick-borne encephalitis.
The risk for travelers of acquiring TBE is increasing with the recent rise in tourism to areas of endemicity during spring and summer, particularly in rural areas favored by the vector. Expand
Influence of age and menopause on serum lipids and lipoproteins in healthy women.
It is concluded that the menopause is associated with potentially adverse changes in lipids and lipoproteins, independent of any effects of ageing, which may in part explain the increased incidence of coronary heart disease seen in postmenopausal women. Expand
Body fat distribution, rather than overall adiposity, influences serum lipids and lipoproteins in healthy men independently of age.
The association of both age and overall adiposity with the fasting serum lipid profile are mediated via their correlations with body fat distribution, and in men, the distribution of body fat is related to adverse changes in serum lipids and lipoproteins, and hence potentially to increased CAD risk.

Milking Compared With Delayed Cord Clamping to Increase Placental Transfusion in Preterm Neonates: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Milking the cord four times achieved a similar amount of placento-fetal blood transfusion compared with delaying clamping the cord for 30 seconds, and there was no significant difference in number of neonates undergoing transfusion. Expand
Lifestyle factors, hormonal contraception, and premenstrual symptoms: the United Kingdom Southampton Women's Survey.
Premenstrual symptoms were common in this cohort of women aged 20-34 years and use of hormonal contraceptive methods was associated with a lower prevalence of these symptoms. Expand
The effects of different formulations of oral contraceptive agents on lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.
The appropriate dose and type of progestin may reduce the adverse effects of oral contraceptives on many metabolic markers of risk for coronary heart disease. Expand
Sex, plasma lipoproteins, and atherosclerosis: prevailing assumptions and outstanding questions.
The hypothesis that the incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) is higher in men than in women due to differences in plasma lipoprotein risk factors between the sexes is reviewed and evidence relating these sex differences in CHD and lipoproteins to the effects of sex hormones is critically examined.

Effects of menopause, gender and age on lipids and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol subfractions.
Male gender is associated with a more atherogenic profile than female gender, with appreciably lower levels of the HDL2-C subfraction, among women, but has less effect than male gender. Expand
The effects of different formulations of oral contraceptive agents on lipid and carbohydrate metabolism
Most men with hypogonadotropic eunuchoidism have absent luteinizing hormone and presumably absent luteinizing hormonereleasing hormone pulses. Pulsatile luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone therapyExpand
Relation of plaque lipid composition and morphology to the stability of human aortic plaques.
Differences in lipid composition and intraplaque lipid distribution between intact and disrupted plaques are demonstrated and increased esterified lipid concentrations, inversely associated with cap thickness, may reflect macrophage activity and a predisposition to rupture at the edge of advanced plaques.
