BACKGROUND Self-management teaching programs are becoming an important asset in the management of pediatric asthma. OBJECTIVE The study was designed to evaluate the impact of self-management teaching programs on the morbidity of pediatric asthma. METHODS The meta-analysis included randomized clinical trials, published between 1970 and 1991, addressing(More)
The balance between protein synthesis and breakdown (protein turnover) regulates whole-body protein mass. The relationships between dietary changes (amount and composition of food) and protein synthesis, protein breakdown and amino acid oxidation have been explored in order to better understand adaptations of protein and amino acid metabolism. Methods for(More)
The regulation of branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) metabolism has been studied in ruminants mainly during the last decade. Evidences support that the rate of BCAA catabolism is lower in ruminants than in monogastrics. This is associated with a low specific BCAA aminotransferase (first catabolic enzyme) activity and a relatively low degree of activation of(More)
OBJECTIVE To conduct an exploratory study to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and cost benefit of universal versus targeted screening for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) to prevent hospital-acquired MRSA infections. DESIGN Prospective, interventional study, using a case-control design, difference-in-differences, and cost-benefit(More)
The aim of this study was to compare elderly people with young adults in France for nutritional knowledge and concerns about meat in the aftermath of the rises with bovine spongiform encephalopathy and foot-and-mouth disease. Between March and April 2001, 99 healthy elderly people and 93 younger adults living in France were interviewed. Most of the elderly(More)
Protein metabolism roughly exhibits the same characteristics in ruminants and non-ruminant species. Changes in whole-body protein mass are the result of the balance between the simultaneous protein synthesis and breakdown. Essential amino acids are either incorporated into protein or degraded. Insulin, growth hormone and glucagon have been shown to regulate(More)

Hyperthyroidism is associated with intense metabolic disturbances. Thus, an increase of basal metabolism and thermogenesis is noted. Glucose data include increased muscle utilization and hepatic production. Its oxydative catabolism is enhanced, while its use for glycogen synthesis is reduced. Lipid turnover is also increased. In vivo and in vitro(More)
