The aim of this study was to build an accurate computer-based model to study the water flow and drag force characteristics around and acting upon the human body while in a submerged streamlined position. Comparisons of total drag force were performed between an actual swimmer, a virtual computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of the swimmer, and an actual(More)
Aims/hypothesis. The growth of retinal vessels is associated with a number of disease conditions, including diabetic retinopathy and proliferative vitreo-retinopathy. In this study we describe a model of human retinal angiogenesis and show how this may be used to explain the mechanisms that are associated with the growth of new retinal vessels. Methods. A 4(More)
Rats were injected twice daily for up to 10 days with GH or with a polyclonal antiserum to rat GH, commencing at 21-22 days of age. Administration of bovine or human GH (1mg/day) improved whole body growth rates by 22% and 29% respectively. Plantaris muscle mass was also increased, by 7 and 14% respectively. Anti-GH injected twice daily resulted in a 7%(More)
