Intravenous glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 [7–36 amide] can normalize plasma glucose in non-insulin-dependent diabetic (NIDDM) patients. Since this is no form for routine therapeutic administration, effects of subcutaneous GLP-1 at a high dose (1.5 nmol/kg body weight) were examined. Three groups of 8, 9 and 7 patients (61 ± 7, 61 ± 9, 50 ± 11 years; BMI(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To analyze the distribution of individually-determined radiation dose to the heart and its functional sub-structures after radiotherapy in breast cancer patients treated in Germany during 1998-2008. MATERIAL AND METHODS We obtained electronic treatment planning records for 769 female breast cancer patients treated with megavoltage(More)
In breast cancer patients treated in the 1970s and 1980s, radiation therapy (RT) for left-sided tumors has been associated with an elevated risk of cardiac mortality. In recent years, improved RT techniques have reduced radiation exposure of the heart and major coronary vessels, but some exposure remains unavoidable. In a retrospective cohort study, we(More)
Cardiac late effects are a major health concern for long-term survivors after radiotherapy for breast cancer. Large cohort studies to better understand the exact dose-response relationship require individual estimates of radiation dose to the heart. To predict individual cardiac dose from information that is typically available for all members of a(More)
Age-related change in episodic memory function is commonly reported in older adults. When detected on neuropsychological tests, it may still be difficult to distinguish normal from pathological changes. The present study investigates age-and sex-related changes in a group of healthy middle-aged and older adults, participating in a three-wave study on(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to investigate odor identification performance in patients one year after hospital admittance due to stroke. Predictors for olfactory dysfunction were investigated as well as self-reported olfactory function and pleasantness of olfactory items. METHODS A 1-year prospective study was performed. Stroke location,(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine changes in odor identification performance and cognitive measures in healthy aging individuals. While cross-sectional studies reveal associations between odor identification and measures of episodic memory, processing speed, and executive function, longitudinal studies so far have been ambiguous with regard to demonstrating that odor(More)
PURPOSE This study aims at experimentally determining the incidence and extent of liquid releases onto the operator's hands and into the work environment during common nursing operations involving infusions. METHODS A sequence of operations related to the preparation and administration of infusions was conducted by three subjects for 15 times each using(More)
OBJECTIVES Discrepant findings of age-related effects between cross-sectional and longitudinal studies on executive function (EF) have been described across different studies. The aim of the present study was to examine longitudinal age effects on inhibition and switching, two key subfunctions of EF, calculated from results on the Color Word Interference(More)
In the treatment of breast cancer, decisions on adjuvant treatment reflect individual patient characteristics like age and comorbidity. This study assessed the association between adherence to guidelines for adjuvant treatment and survival while taking into account age at diagnosis and comorbidities. We collected the Charlson comorbidity index at baseline(More)
